New Ban Guide
#1
Update (02/06/2016)

All staff:
  • Members with the rank of "GOD" may NOT under any circumstances use their one unban "ticket" on a member whom was banned for doxing or harassing another member, even if the member whom was doxed says that it is okay to unban them.  This should be common sense to everyone but apparently it is not.
  • Make sure you edit user notes and include the ban reason every time you ban a user so that we know why they were banned after their ban is lifted. (Mods can contact Mod+ or higher to do this)

Moderators:
  • You may never unban any member, unless you "accidentally" banned them.
  • If you think you falsely banned a member by mistake, the member still needs to post a ban appeal.
  • It is highly suggested that you provide photographic evidence of a member breaking a rule when you ban them but not required.
  • You cannot undo the actions of any staff member except your own granted you made some sort of mistake.
Head-moderators:
  • You may never unban any member, unless you "accidentally" banned them.
  • If you think you falsely banned a member by mistake, the member still needs to post a ban appeal.
  • It is highly suggested that you provide photographic evidence of a member breaking a rule when you ban them but not required.
  • You cannot undo the actions of any staff member except your own granted you made some sort of mistake.
  • If you believe that a regular moderator or head-moderator has made some sort of mistake, talk to them with a staff member that is an administrator, co-owner, or owner.
Administrators:
  • You may never unban any member, unless you "accidentally" banned them.
  • If you think you falsely banned a member by mistake, you may unban them.
  • It is highly suggested that you provide photographic evidence of a member breaking a rule when you ban them but not required.
  • You CAN undo all actions aside from bans of any staff member whom has a lower rank than you if you feel that they have abused their position or made a mistake.  If you undo the actions of a moderator or head-moderator, you need to talk to them and explain why you undid their actions.
  • You CAN unban members who have posted a ban appeal proving themselves innocent with unaltered and original evidence.  Also, you may unban members for minor offenses such as spamming if you feel that they deserve a second chance.
  • Members that are banned for more serious offenses such as doxing and are guilty of it, may never be unbanned unless the co-owner or owner decides to unban them.
  • You cannot demote staff unless it is an emergency situation.  For example, if a head-moderator is handing out IP addresses in the shoutbox, you can demote them.  However, for example, if a moderator is suspected of abuse, you may not demote them until you talk to the co-owner or owner.


These rules stand and apply to all staff as of 02/06/2016.  They are subject to change from the co-owner and owner.  Do not try to be sly and bypass these rules via "loopholes."  Abuse will result in a demotion.

-------------------------------

If a staff member believes that a user has done something that deserves a ban, they can use their intuition to ban that user, however, mod/admin abuse will result in a permanent ban.


If you feel as if a staff member has wrongfully banned you, report them either here or here. Do NOT make another account to post a report and/or ban appeal. �Ban evasion is against the rules and will result in a permanent IP ban.

I have posted some new rules for the following reasons:
- To ensure that members can feel safe and are not bullied out of leaving the website.
- To ensure that members are treated more equally and have no type of immunity to certain rules.
- To ensure that staff members do not abuse their ranks.

I hope everyone understands why. I am not trying to put myself in front of any other administrators by posting these. I just feel that posting these now was necessary.
