Talk of bans
 
Was it for that T.A.G entry?

What TAG entry?

I absolutely hate these threads, and I shouldn't even reply, but I want this to be well-known:

Because many players of TAG and Dumbwords don't visit the forum, and just play those games, using bad language in those games results in an immediate 3-day ban instead of an infraction or anything like that. That's the only way I have to impact people like that, who probably would ever even SEE an infraction. The ban is immediately apparent to them and they understand why they got it, and it directly impacts them in the game.

As always (and this is why I hate these threads):

1. If someone was permanently banned, they would absolutely know why and it would be no surprise.

2. It would be none of your business why, it's their own personal issue and they can't discuss it, so it's not fair for us to.

3. A thread like this is a direct question of me, so why are you posting it as a thread instead of a PM? Just PM someone if you have a question for them personally (major pet peeve that I see all the time).

Well, a bunch of other people might have the same question, especially in a situation like this one where someone's been banned. I'm not really sure what's worse though; a thread directed at one person, or a bunch of private messages that all ask the same question.

Another good point. Maybe this thread should be deleted after Max comes back, with Jamul saying "irrelevant, now"...

Yep. Good thing it's only temporary.

Not to be offensive...
But it always strikes me as a no-brainer as of to why you shouldn't even REFFER to a swear on a site like this (implying that actually swearing is a very big no-no), user or visitor.
But nowadays nobody really cares.
And as of What Jamul said:
He means that these, "Why was who-knows-who banned?" topics are basically saying:
"How do we think Jamul was unfair to us (when the rules were only being enforced) this time?"
People, if you can't understand this, I don't get ya.

I meant for us normal users.

You don't need to know. The whole point of moderating it is that you shouldn't even know it was there.

Piracy. If you read the Non-Hamumu games forum, you'd know.

Re: Why was max banned!?
 
What a downer. :cry: Now all the people that were on Hamumu that I knew personally have been banned. And all for piracy! Let this be a warning to us all. Piracy doesn't pay. Good thing I never do it.
