Thanks for the update.

I think the issue is whether some infractions really should have been judged major or would be judged major today. I can think of a couple cases in particular, but its probably best not to mention specific names here.

one thing that should be considered is that sometimes the public's perception of why someone was banned is not the actual thing they were banned for. so some serious dirty laundry airing may need to happen were this suggestion to be implemented.

Fair point, but a ban should be a fairly open thing. I guess a solution might be simply to ask the person if they want to appeal as part of the process. If they don't want to come back, they can say so, and if they don't want to discuss their ban, it doesn't have to get to that stage.

Also, though, to add to your concern, because obviously this is a good issue to bring up, the dirty laundry might involve other players. And they might not want to have stuff aired in public.

Good point.

I agree, there must be a "court of law" for CC for major violations

I don't think I'd go that far- it is after all a site that's owned and run as a business. It's also a site that prides itself on community. I don't want CC to become a democracy, and of course it never will, but working out the right balance seems to be one of the main points of the suggestions forum. The ultimate decision will always reside with the powers that be, but I think there should be an appeals process where members of the community can add their voice.

Sure, why not? Although, I feel as though this would put a strain on someone...the judge(s)

We all remember that guy that "forgot" that he had opened an account before, and got banned for writing about it in the forums. So, I say, YES, they should be able to e-ticket a support regarding their problem!

I guess it depends on the reason for the ban in the first place. what kind of offence results in a permanent ban?

That is exactly why he got busted. The e-ticket is available from the log in page. He did not use the e-ticket.

usually NOT CHEATING IN GAMES, mostly for forum violations (where less than 3% of CC'ers ever visit). when pressed about this, an admin stated that it would take far too much time to look into the LESS THAN 12 PERMABANNED members that many of us are still concerned about. this place is getting less and less user friendly. funny how people that cheat in games, INCLUDING A PAST CONQUEROR, are allowed to pay for premium again, and there are no real repercussions. and this appeal process should be fair, not a kangaroo court.-el Jesus negro

Cheaters welcome, opinionated comedic people..........OUT!!!!

Why does a strategy gaming site condone cheating? To me that is the biggest reason for being permanently banned.
