Thread: We need a ban durations list.

  1. #1

    Default We need a ban durations list.

    Since ban time durations are not inherently clear in /rules and mods have been having a hard time giving out appropriate punishments, we should have a list of suspected ban durations for specific actions. Here’s what I think the list could look like. This is just an example of how one could look, not everything here should be final. I suggest that the Ubisoft staff make a list of their own and then we, the players may suggest tweaks and any discrepancies or clarifications that need to be made. A final approved version of a list should be posted in the /rules and be made very clear.

    WE REALLY NEED THIS SO EVERYONE WOULD KNOW WHICH COULD BE THE REASON OF THEIR BAN, or if it is a deeper issue they have to put the reason of ban

    I spent like 2 minutes thinking of something funny to write here. I can't think of anything.

    Should definitely also be something made available for anyone to read easily, the current state of Growtopia moderators tells me they might not even have an exact one for every scenario, seems somewhat arbitrary. Though taking things case by case is rather important, having some strict guidelines would also make things less unfair.

    Yeah, they should be more clear on what exactly causes what length of ban, but there are many different possible situations, so it isn't plausible to make a perfect list for every scenario.

    Also, I feel like players and even the mods are forgetting that they have other punishments than just bans. Maybe include some of those in your list.

    I think this would be perfect, considering they don't seem to care about context what so ever, so might aswell just make it as clear as possible that there's no exceptions to the rules and just state clearly every single rule and it's punishment length.

    I think these are pretty fair, except hosting a casino doesn't seem like such a big deal, so I'd change that to perhaps 60 days, since playing the casino yourself doesn't give such a big punishment.
    Also, what if there's a third time offender? Would that be a 60 day ban then, most likely?

    Drop game hosters get a 60 day ban usually, I remember getting one like 4 years ago when I was a kid lol.
    I think if a mod catches someone scamming, it should be atleast a 60 day ban.

    I agree completely about any sort of speech rule breaking, which would result in Duct-Tape/Silence. It doesn't make sense at all to ban someone for that.

    Considering this more likely as preview version, I agree with that bans not really balanced and needs a change both bans and rules.

    I disagree as EVERY case is different and depending on the severity, moderators should be able to suggest an appropriate punishment. Instead, why not make a reference for the most common punishments that they can refer to and make the appropriate judgements?
    To thine own self be true,
    and it must follow,
    as the night the day,
    thou canst not then be false to any man.


    I have read through Ubisoft's ToS and EULA, feel free to ask any questions!

    Been noticing quite a lot that it usually depends on moderator himself on what kind of ban durations or punishments people get for doing something illegal. I wonder if would add something like that.
