In light of the recent events involving bans and ipbans, I thought it best to reinforce some things about bans. Mostly temporary bans as we saw in the past few days.
If you are banned then you are not meant to use any PCB services other than the forums to post an appeal.
This includes but is not limited to; chatting on the dynamic map and logging into the server on an alternate account.
If you are seen by staff to be bypassing your ban then you can expect an ipban. It is the only way we can ensure that you cannot use our services. If/when your appeal has been accepted, you can use our services as normal.
Kicks are to be viewed as a warning.
This means that after being kicked you should stop doing whatever it was that got you kicked.
Even in cases that would not normally require a ban (such as arguing) can result in a ban if a kick is ignored.
For example, if you are involved in an argument and get kicked for your involvement in the argument, DO NOT restart the conversation. Instead, you should calm down and forget about it.
Contrary to popular belief, we don’t want to ban the world and his dog for petty things like that (If anything because a ban appeal is more hassle for us to sort out). We are here to make sure everyone can enjoy themselves. If you ignore our warnings and continue to make a nuisance of yourself, expect a ban.
