After the festivities of tonight, I would like to start proposing rules and regulations for banning and suspending people on the forum. I feel it is needed, so that there are guidelines of what to do when things start getting out of hand. I propose the following:

1. A 3-strike approach with forum behavior. Any of the following may be subject to a warning:
-Trolling
-Abuse
-Harassment toward other members
-Other miscellaneous conduct deemed inappropriate by either the forum community/community manager

After 2 warnings, the offender gets a suspension of 5-7 days. After 3, banned permanently. If offenses are severe enough, an auto-ban might be warranted.

2. Auto-bans are given out for making spam posts, ala the kind we saw back in 2012-2013 with WoW Gold, boner pills, and the like.

3. If you are found to have a multiple account, that multiple account will get banned, and the original account (deemed as the earliest sign up date out of the accounts) will receive a warning.
-3a. If you are making a multiple account for legitimate reasons as deemed by the Community/Community Manager (i.e. forgetting a password to an old account), no warning will be given, but activity on the old account will be monitored closely.
--3a.1. If the old account comes back into fruition (as deemed by factors including, but not limited to, last user activity) with the new account, without proper explanation, the punishment from Rule 3 will be given immediately.

I know there are probably more ideas out there, but I want to crowd-source this with you guys. What can be improved? What can be added? Let me know.

I'm completely on board with this. New members trying to stir stuff up - be forewarned.

This was needed to refresh everybody, thanks Dish.

If you think these proposed rules are an indictment on your behavior alone, that is not what I intend them to be. I apologize if that's what you think was implied by this.

Yes, I agree with that. And I would say there needs to be a rule on having multiple accounts as well. I don't know if that was ever written anywhere though.

I believe this is fit for the events of the last couple weeks and how immature we can be without guidance or a form of punishment to stop us. Thanks for the new format

Oh, yes. Thanks for reminding me. I'll edit the OP right away.

I understand the thing with anthonyp's brother, how he forgot the password to his old account; He admitted it immediately and only used his new account so that was mature on his part. But we can't have people claiming that left and right

Then, how can we have people prove they're making a new account for reasons such as legitimately forgetting a password and stuff like that?

Probably monitor their old account activity and hopefully the member will admit to making a new one for legitimate reasons.
