Older members will remember "The Noose." This is the same basic concept, but with less meanness.
For you new guys, the idea here is simple. Whenever a member gets banned, there will be a post made here with the members name, a link to the offending post, and when they will be unbanned. When that persons ban expires, the post in here gets deleted.
This way, whenever someone gets sent away, you guys can just check here instead of wondering why X person was banned.
Just some general disclaimers:
- Unlike the original Noose, the idea here is not to add one more layer to a persons punishment. This is not a "Wall of Shame." This thread is only here for informational purposes. Once your ban has expired, the post about your ban will be deleted.
- Permanent bans will be displayed here for a bit longer, but they too will go away after a while.
- If you notice that a persons account shows as banned, but the duration of the ban has passed, please let us know. The forum software is supposed to unban people automatically, but it acts funny sometimes and doesn't do it, so we don't always notice.
- As always, if you feel you have been banned unjustly, you're welcome to email the mod who banned you and make your case. Our emails are in the stickied Rules thread.
If you have any questions or complaints, feel free to send me a PM.
