Penalty Box

Post by theadore » Wed Oct 12, 2011 1:29 pm

It occurred to me that I had no idea that FFP - or anyone else for that matter - is ever the subject of a ban from this particular corner of the internet.

While I appreciate that this is better for the all round sanity of the moderating team - it strikes me as no fun for the rest of us.

Instead of temporary bans I think there should be a penance sub-forum. Anyone who falls foul of editorial policy should be given 2 weeks where they are only allowed to post in their own thread in the penalty box thread. The thread is headed with a short summary of what they did - and everyone can tell them how silly they have been. They themselves can reply only in this thread, but anything they post is changed to "Sorry - I will read the rules in future"

Just a thought.

I like this idea. A naughty corner.

While I generally agree (and had often thought that it would be fun to give Savory a section of his own so he could only post in there but nobody else could see it) if someone gets a ban it is usually because we don't want them back ever ever. We can do temp bans but I can only think of one occasion that it's been used. It was only my bloody good nature and unconditional positive regard that meant I let young Rhys post again (he said sorry, bless). So yes. But also no. Fuck them.
