Ban Me We should have access to our own ban histories

I do not see a reason the histories should not be on our public profiles, as we can just put the information in our forums signatures anyway.

I agree with having a history of my bans. I don’t really care about public disclosure of bans if they are shown by alt and not by account (lol altreveals), but I see the drama it might cause so…

HURDDFF ALTFAIL….

You’re correct. I was moving your post to GRP, and was going to issue a ‘warning’. To keep a record of the warning, we record that on your profile as a ‘backdated’ ban. I.E., if it’s 7/31/2009, 4 p.m., we set your ban ending time to be in the past, say, 7/31/2009 12 noon. When it’s done properly, you never even see the ban message, and you’re never actually banned. We just have to send you a Tubmail to let you know that you were actually warned.

In this case, I put in the correct backdated end time, but clicked the wrong ban confirmation.

Well, that sounds like a horrible system for making comments on someone’s profile.

Wow, this would be a great feature!

While I completely agree with this (duh) I don’t think it’ll ever happen. I think CZ and the mods would probably think that giving us access to our ban histories will give us a way to brag about our bans and influence other posters to do subversive stuff to try to “fit in” with a particular crowd.

I for one would love to see a leaderboard, not because I want to “top it” but because I am interested in some peoples ban histories and how much people get away with here. It’s pure curiosity, and I can’t see the harm in compiling that data.

Well, spf357 really rocks.

I don’t think the “leaderboard” or public showcasing of ban history (even with an option to make it private) will ever happen, but a list of self bans would be cool.

Yeah, I admit I’m partly interested in seeing PANTS’ ban history and others, because I do not feel that after all the rules that got him banned have been removed, it is still entirely fair.

I don’t want to see mine, it would **** me off each time.. it would be like this:

ban 1: Tubs was a drunken idiot and banned me for no reason

permaban1: Cid was a newb idiot and banned me for no reason

Does it.. really matter?

I guess not, we both probably have 100+ bans on our account if they just give us old bans to add comments… seems like a pretty stupid way to have the comment system set up to me.

Wylin’s a good boy who got perfect attendance awards in school. Having a ban history weighs deeply on his conscience.

warning != comment

there’s a place for comments, but since a warning counts toward ban history, it makes sense to go there.

but I’m actually agreeing with raepdog here… does it really matter?

It’s a horrible system to record a comment about a warning by giving people a ban they shouldn’t know about.

But, I have to admit I am curious now.

MY MEMORY IS THAT OF A SMALL GRAPE

why bother with adding something when this system works perfectly?

apart from the one ****up out of, umm, 3000 bans (not kidding) noone would ever even know that’s how we do it.

specially since it says “violating rules of flamebate – warning” and links to the post.

1/100k users has an issue here it seems.

I have an issue though, with not having access to my own ban history.

No one would have ever known until we allow everyone to see ban histories and people are like OMG, lol!

a warning is a pre-ban of sorts. for certain things you might do, having received a warning determines whether you get a ban.

when we go to ban someone, we look at the ban history to determine if it’s a ban or a warning and to determine ban length.

comments generally indicate something not even a little bit ban related. why should we have to look in multiple places for information that belongs in one place?

as for not knowing, that’s what the warning tubmail is for. with a backdated ban, it’s noted as a warning, not a ban. ideally you never actually get banned (unless a mod ****s up – we’re human, it happens) and it’s not a case of “not supposed to know about it” – it’s 1000% about being able to effectively track a user’s history.

you were due for a warning. you’d still have something on your record. unfortunately, cid ****ed up. he apologized profusely… repeatedly. et gave you back your scoops and cards that got lost with the perma. it’s been 4 months.

do you really think a warning comes without, oh, warning the user? that’s what tubmail is for.

Moderators, please look up the word “civil,” and please stop derailing my thread. Thank you.
