[Rules] Allow permabanned members to appeal

Postby Army of GOD on Thu Sep 22, 2011 8:41 pm

Concise description:
  • Let members who were banned permanently and/or for six months have a chance to appeal their bans through an e-ticket

Specifics/Details:
  • It is unfair that the max banishment has been reduced to 3 months, therefore users who have been banned permanently or for six months before the max ban was reduced should have the opportunity to appeal. If Team CC doesn't think their ban should be reduced or lifted, then no action is required. But at least allow the opportunity for an appeal.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • This is a user-active suggestion. Team CC doesn't have to go through EVERY SINGLE case. Only the cases that are being appealed through e-tickets
  • Greatly better CC/member relations

And yes, I fully realize that if this suggestion gets support and is moved to the submitted sub-form, it'll be around 3-4 years until it is implemented.

I'll volunteer to organize a committee to assess appeals, fine tune them, gather full information, and present the case to the mods in a concise yet informative format.

This will lower their costs associated with approving this proposal.

This would make sense if and only if the staff agreed that the system was previously unfair and they are correcting an injustice. But if the change was simply to adapt to a new culture in the community, then the old punishments made sense in the context of the CC community as it was in the past, so retroactively changing punishments doesn't make sense.

Why should that discretion to be left to the staff?

Previously, the discretion wasn't left to the staff on the 3-month rule, because the CC members pushed for it via their own discretion...

Why are you arbitrarily changing the scenario?

Well, it's ultimately left to the staff because they're the all-powerful decision makers here.

Though, I agree. Hopefully the staff has the sense to follow the requests of its members, even if they do think the bans were fair. If a large majority of users were to be in favor of this and the staff just sits there with their arms crossed, there will be a (bigger) rift which isn't good for a currently declining website.

this could possibly work..if the banned/"returnie" would be under close supervision...and promise to behave, follow rules and guidelines etc. and If they crossed the line..... gone again... be like a second chance.. IF it were approved... I think it would ultimately be up to admin and the all "powerful" owner of this site. Just my 2 cents on this subject and not that of other "staff" members.

Those that come back from an extended forum ban, like when general Stoneham came back, were/are always under very close supervision. I seem to recall Andy following almost every single General post with one of his own.

But yes. In all fairness and good business why not have an appeal system. One that may actually be productive and not just one for show.

Yes..u will always get those that don't care or can't follow the rules after coming back..but why should 1 person ruin the chances for those that are sincere in wanting to return? A lesson finnaly learned if you will!... But again...only my opinion not that of anyone else mod or like.....

This seems quite fair. Does anyone know how many users this would even affect?

Theoretically if these users are allowed back onto the site and allowed to post in the forums they could be placed in a special category where their posts need to be approved by a moderator before being displayed.

Overall I like the idea
