    Like, seriously wrong.
    I'm assuming you never did any spying in eve?
    win+r
    cmd
    plink -load fhc

    vpn is now connected and ready for posting.

    The initial setup takes all of 5 minutes. And with no special effort on my part (e.g. purchasing a vpn service), I have 4 unique groupings of IPs to pick from: home, work, school, and a RL friend with a different ISP than me. So if I wanted to play cat and mouse with a ban, that would be 4 accounts I could have used without anyone knowing that they were my alt. To switch between then all it would take is loading a different ssh profile in putty.


    multiple ssh tunnel accounts pre-prepared to dodge ip bans to post on a spaceship forum where people mainly poast about zombies tanks and ponies doesnt' strike you as a little bit ~srs bzns~ ?
    You missed the part where those ssh tunnels aren't all preconfigured and sitting waiting to go in case of ban. They're all normal things I have access to and use regardless of my posting on this (or any other) forum. Work ssh tunnel is there for work, school ssh tunnel is there to run things on their server and submit assignments, friends ssh tunnel is there so I can reset his server for him if he's somewhere where he can't. The main point I'm trying to make here is that having access to multiple things that can be used to tunnel through isn't anywhere near as uncommon or effort inducing as you seem to think it is.

    Oh look, consequences.
    actually, wrong.

    i *had* to implement a 10 infraction limit because of the way i configured infractions.

    if you get an infraction, its worth 1 point and lasts 30 days, however if you get a second one, that infraction would last x+1, so second infraction is 2 months, 3rd is 3 months and so on.

    he received 5 infractions so quickly that when his 7 day ban finished he still had 5 infractions, thus the 6th one was added not doing anything, this was brought to my attention when he hit around 8 i believe. since there was no upper auto-infract-ban flags set up, he basically started collecting them up to his 8th one, so i implemented a 10 infraction = 30 day ban, vs the 5 infraction = 7 day ban.

    i after that modified infractions so they dont extend each other because well, if you hit 10 infractions you'd end up with like 10 months wroth of them thus breaking the system, its not special treatment, the fact is that he is the only special one (in a bad way) that actually pushed the limit.
    Okay. Well thanks for the explanation

    Actually, can I suggest that infractions (and possibly temp bans) that end up having to be reversed upon appeal because of :comedy: or asshat mod - then get applied to the mod?

    If you're going to make a alt account to evade a ban, I think it's time too step away from the forum. I'm looking at you Xenosis.

    Heh. Either way I'll just mail EntroX like he said earlier and he can deal with it in an appropriate manner. The infraction I was talking about, after checking just now, has indeed expired so no worries.

    And that's the attitude of a terrible poster who is able to achieve five infractions.

    most of you use them to rile up others, but another selective group uses it for another reason, ban evasion.

    i want to clear something up, i am not telling you not to make an alt when your other account is banned, i am not your mother and i have no reason to tell you what to do, on the other hand i am responsible of ensuring an enjoyable experience for every single one of you so there are some slight rules that should be followed, anyways back on topic. while i could spend hours playing cat and mouse with you until either of us or both get bored of banning dozens of IP addresses, emails and other things i have come up with a more harsh solution to this problem.

    if you get you "main" banned and you hop on one or several "alts" and get either of said alts banned, i will remove your "main" from the forum and block the name from registration, this is a process that cannot and will not be reversed, this simply means that you will lose your post count, reputation and sent/received private messages. the data will remain but it will be marked as posted by a guest rather than a registered user. infractions are simply formal requests to please behave yourself and if you will not oblige then i will make sure that your experience is ruined as much as possible since all you are doing is annoying others.

    i will be the one and only person that will take this action and i genuinely hope i will never have to do so.
    can i have my sig back plz

    To people complaining about "lol xenosis lol infractions permaban"

    A good number of those are krans infractions, so not only did I get a new rule installed, I also got a new infraction type installed

    GG NO RE

    (seriously though, this is a good idea)

    I find it amusing that people object to the (now debunked) idea of Xenosis getting special treatment with regards to infractions, but are perfectly content to have Krans infractions apply to everyone except Krans.

    Because Krans has been doing it for years and is also usually appropriate to the topic at hand.

    Xenosis isn't Krans. Also XR and scamps are both banned so surely Xenosis should be banned now?
