34 posts in this topic

This portion of section 6:

A reinstated member comes back with 2 active warns, one lasting 3 months and one 6 months. The terms of reinstatement also include a possible permanent ban if it is earned (that cannot be appealed).

The returning member will be permanently banned under the following circumstances:

- If a nudge is received at anytime in the first six months

- If a warn is received in the first 3 months

- If two warns are accrued in the following 3 months, as, after the first 3 months, one warn expires and one is still active

- If 3 active warns are accrued after the probation period has ended

- If the returning member socks, trolls, flames, or similar, at any time

has been updated to this:

A reinstated member comes back with 2 active warns, both of which last 6 months. The terms of reinstatement also include a possible permanent ban if it is earned (that cannot be appealed).

While on probation, the returning member will be permanently banned under the following circumstances:

- If a nudge is received

- If a warn is received

- If the returning member socks, trolls, flames, or similar, at any time

Changes to section 6:

The following:

When a member is banned, if it's not a troll or a spammer, a post will be made in Mod Forum with a short description of the reasons for the ban.


Moderators are able to warn for an offence in their forum without consulting the other Admods first. However, if an Admod is unsure, the issue is brought up in the Admods forum to be discussed.

Has been changed to:

When a member is banned, if the member is not a spammer a post will be made in the Admod Archives with a short description of why the member was banned. Note: some member bans will not be mentioned in the event that the member was banned for harassment or other reasons based on the Admod's discretion"


Moderators are required to bring up warnings with the admod team at least 24 hours prior to sending a warning for the team to review the situation.

Also, some mentions of admod and pt were changed to staff or had DT included.

Display Names:
All display names must be at least three (3) non-white-space characters. Furthermore, to facilitate search functionality, we would ask that any display name contain at least two (2) consecutive non-white-space characters. Users may change their display names six (6) times per year (365 days). Names found to be too short or otherwise inappropriate may be changed without warning though the Admod Team will attempt to contact the user in question before any changes are made where it is not considered urgent. To learn how to change your display name, click here.
