    DroidForums Staff Banning Guidelines

    It has been brought to our attention that perhaps it is time to set some guidelines in place, as far as how discipline is distributed, just so that we have a standard as to how we deal with each situation.

    We here @ DroidForums.net have decided that it would be BEST to handle offensive posts/people/etc. as follows:

    DroidForums.net is going to implement a “Three Strike” policy.

    The First time someone steps out of line, we will issue a WARNING via PM if it is nothing too serious.

    Strike One: After that, or if it is a very serious offense, Strike one is a 7 day temporary ban WITH a PM telling that person why they received that ban.

    Strike Two: The Second would be a 30 day ban with another PM telling them that this is their final vacation and that any further offenses would be followed with

    Strike Three: which would THEN be a Permanent Ban.

    The ONLY exceptions to this rule would be porn or spam posts. These will receive a Permanent Ban Immediately


    DroidForums.net retains the right to modify the 3 Strike Policy as needed to keep
    DroidForums a safe, friendly and family oriented place for our members.

    spam is when somebody pms everybody with a "new special offer" or some crap like that. I doubt you would accidentally spam us.
    It happens quite a bit on the car forum i use.

    I am in complete agreeance in regards to the spam. I used to belong to another forum until it turned into a damn commercial. There were all kinds of pop-ups ( and I had on my pop-up blocker, the would open another window without my knowledge ) and people trying to pedal their services. And at one point the pages themselves started containing viruses able to exploit IE. It is a dark road once we stray from a community by the people for the people ( lol no pun intended ) and become by the Person for the individual. And there is no need for any rude behavior either. If you don't agree with something someone writes the simply say " I don't agree " no need to show your a$$.

    What about a username, someone I know got banned without warning or notice because of the username they had.
