Duration: 7 days. Ban will be lifted 05-04-2008, ~01:00 PM

User: DEATHMASTER 6000
Reason: Puppet account used by Mic.
Duration: Permanent.

It's one he created during my little mini-bandwagon.

You can check the e-mail he used if you like.

Shouldn't the puppet account be fully banned and was it not you who told me that making these public record was a bad idea? 'cause now I'm confused. I'd like some clearification please...

I think this is a good idea actually. Better then rumors and threads on why someone might/is banned. It is just a straight up information thing.

Tell me where it says that puppet accounts are against the rules.

I have no idea what you're talking about. I made this because of the backlash that occurred after we banned Wiki without an announcement.

I'm torn between letting people know why someone's banned and the privacy that should be there. For one, I think it should be obvious when one is banned. Their actions are normally the cause for it. But yeah, you can't control rumors.

Which is why I felt something like this needed to be made.

I wanted to avoid a repeat of the confusion that followed the Wiki situation. Most places don't necessarily need a thread like this, but we're rather close knit, so people notice when someone goes missing.

I won't lie. I wouldn't notice. But then again, I understand that you wanted to avoid another incident like when Wiki was banned. And I'm going to be a good girl and keep my thoughts about the whole deal to myself.

You got the wrong guy. Travis moved it initially and then Grave concurred with the decision.

That's odd, though. I think the members here deserve to be informed, especially after what happened with Wiki.

I remember Grave wanted something done about it for a while, but no one was ever actually banned for having one.

The only people that have ever been punished for puppet accounts are people that were using them to bypass a previous ban. Like in Mic's case.

Well, in that case shouldn't the deathmaster name be a permanent ban? I would think so.

Mic's ban is only for a week, so I felt a week for his puppet account would be sufficient.

It probably would matter either way, though.

But he used it to bypass his original ban. That alone would, in my opinion, warrant the puppet account to be banned for good. But hey, your decision. I'll go along with it.

Lol, that actually makes sense. XD

I should probably ban the puppet account permanently then.

I personally like the idea of this thread. Whether whose idea it was in the first place shouldn't matter, considering at least now the members (yes, all seven of us >>) will be informed on what happened with whomever gets banned. This way, we don't have to wait for rumors or for an admin to talk to us about it, if they even would.

I don't know why people try to keep "personal" internet problems be private... It's the internet, we find out anyway eventually.
