Seems like a topic to talk about right now since a lot of users are getting the banhammer crushed upon them or the suspension slip handed out.

Lately I noticed SSBFan got banned. While he wasn't exactly my friend but I knew him for a while and he was appearantly banned. I noticed sonic__323's blog tell us about it and with all the bans going around, I think someone you know may have gotten banned/suspended.

So, anyone know anyone who's been hit by the banhammer?

Well, here's a link to sonic's blog about SSB's banning:

SSBFan12 has been banned!

And I have seen countless users banned lately, but so far none I know well.

Though PMF did get suspended a while back. But that's old news.

Not really. I knew King23, but turns out he was a plagiarizer - same with Serbsta. The only user I was really close to that got banned was Sparkey, and he got banned in 2007.

Yah, it stinks he got suspended, but do you know why? Do you know if he had any other previous warnings of the same kind? It's hard to judge whether something's harsh or not if we don't have the whole story.

You guys think the mods are evil, but I'd pretty much gurantee that whatever these guys got banned/suspended for they probably deserved it.

I just know SSBFan12 has been banned from my friends, also some guy named Azure-SuperNova I think was his name, he was a good friend, but I will miss SSBFan12 the most, he was the only best buddy I have on this site.. I don't think I will able to talk to him again.. :(

In fact, new users are being banned for spamming. Okay, at least let them off with a warning and maybe a suspension, but a ban? To a new user? That's kinda ridiculous.

i know why, but it is hard for me to say here, lets just say he called someone something that was a little out of line, he got reported and the member who reported him got banned for trolling.

Like in droves. I'll go find new users on the Nintendo boards and a lot of them are banned for creating the wrong topics or spamming once. Which normally nets you a warning, point loss, or in cases of higher leveled users, a suspension.

Second to Gamespot is IGN, and they're still a ways back. But even if they did pass Gamespot, their forums are nowhere near as active as ours.

I've seen that happen. I went to the Nintendo boards recently to find 3-4 users banned that just joined (Level 1 or Level 2, maybe a level 3) and they posted spam or something that would normally get a warning first time around, and I go to their profile and they're banned.

IGN is better in everything but their Forums IMO, but it would take something serious for their forums to pass ours in activity.

How do you know they didn't have previous warnings? How do you know they weren't ban-dodgers?

They don't ban that fast. Guess new users should read the ToU and be nice when they ask why they are moderated.

That's a good point. They could be ban dodgers. But when you see this increase in banning going on, can you really say EVERY SINGLE moderation/suspension/ban is deserved? It's summertime. The mods are ticked. Not every time they mod someone will it be fair.

Yes, I can say that. Why would mods wrongly ban people? What good does it do for them? It's not like they have a quota or something.

It gets rid of possible further nuisances. And that's exactly my point. They are very fair people. But around this time, there's a thing called stress that is easy to find.

And the mods are only human. That's gonna affect them in some way.

The moderation que can build up and they will deal with it when they have time. They are doing it on a voluntary basis. No one paying them.

The couple moderators who did let their anger or stress get the best of them are no longer mods. Believe me when I say that it doesn't work that way.

Good point, but it's still unfair. I could've been banned for my earlier posts and such. Why wasn't I? Because I wasn't in the direct sight of the mods.

No, it's because you changed your ways and didn't continue to do what would be a bannable offense.
