Got a question regarding clarification of one or more bannable offenses? Any bannable offenses you object to? Any you would legitimately like to see added? Hopefully, with the number of active mods, questions can be addressed.

For those of you who have never read the list, or don't know where to find them, I have listed them for you below, along with descriptions.


Bannable Offenses

http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/faq.php?faq=vb_faq#faq_bannable

ChiefsPlanet tries to be a forum run by it's community, and the moderator's do have freedom to chose how to deal with a given situation. That being said, the following things are things that we have agreed upon as reasons that you may have your access removed either temporarily or permanently.

1. Spam

If you are a long time regular(i.e. Nzoner and Phobia), we have no problem with you posting links to your web sites, but if you come on the BB trying to sell something or trying to get more traffic on your site your post will be edited to make fun of you and your account will be suspended.

2. NSFW Links

If a site that you link to has images or content that are not safe for work, then it must be linked as such.

3. Overloading the Front Page with Threads

Posting a bunch of threads, or "bumping" a bunch of old threads in a short period of time.

4. Threats

Physically threatening other members, or posting private information such as home address or phone numbers.

5. NSFW Images

Images that include nudity or are exceptionally grotesque are considered NSFW (not safe for work) and may not be posted using the IMG tag or attached. However, such images may be linked from other web sites, provided that the link is labeled as NSFW appropriately.

6. Word Filter Evasion

We have built in filters for some cuss words, adding spaces, # keys, etc to get around the filter.

7. Rude Comments in Prayers/Thoughts Threads

Prayers and thoughts threads are not treated as normal threads, and will be handled with kid gloves. So, if you have something rude to say, keep it to yourself.

8. False News or Thread Title

Many people come here for their Chiefs news, so we don't tolerate false news stories, even if done as a joke. Misleading thread titles can fall into this category.


Other handy-to-know information:

What is the allowed size of a signature?

ChiefsPlanet has some very generous guidelines, 200 pixels tall by 650 pixels wide is more than enough screen real estate for you to express you individuality. That dimension includes your graphics AND any witty text you want to share. If you go over this amount, you may lose your ability to have a signature.

How can I adjust the profanity filter?

By default, all users are configured to use a small set of profanity filters. However, we recognize that different people have different preferences for how profanity is handled on the forum. As such, you have the following options to control the forum's profanity filters:

* If you would rather not use the default filter list, change your default style to "Full Featured (unfiltered)" in your User CP under "Edit Options."
* If you would like to add additional words to the forum's word censor list, you can do so in your User CP under "Edit Options" as well. Look for "Self Censor Posts" toward the bottom of the list. Words you enter into the box will be replaced by asterisks in the forum.


There, I do believe I just posted the entire FAQ page.

The short answer is that WE ARE ABOVE THE LAW!!

Seriously, though, there's always been a huge amount of discretion at play with any ban. Context is almost always considered.

Boards like this require all of us to empower the mods to enforce a little common sense and not having every possible offense covered by the rules. In general, I think the rules are helpful and good. But at the end of the day, it comes down to the mods being able to apply common sense on what is bannable and what is not.

Trying to enforce another standard might jeopardize the culture of CP (which, honestly took me some time to adjust to but ultimately is the reason I enjoy it so much.)

I'm sorry, but I don't think a mod is just going to flippantly abuse their power just because they can (except on April Fools' Day). They are trying to do what's best for the Planet and its members, and I don't need a point-by-point explanation of every rule.

Bullshit. The only rule, effectively is don't be a douchebag. Everything else falls in line. I don't recall hearing about a banning that just came out of nowhere (other than a couple Bob Dole ones). For the most part, we have fair mods who let a lot slide. This isn't a court of law. If you think you've been treated unfairly, suck it up or go somewhere else. Whining about mod abuse is a pathetic waste of time.

Posted via Mobile DeviceIt has been pointed out that I've gotten around the rules filter a few times and not been banned. I really didn't do it on purpose. I thought farking or something like that was better than fucking. But nevertheless....

I've had my name changed, my casino cash stolen, my signature screwed around with, my avatar changed etc.It was all in good fun and just part of being on this board. It wasn't done because they hated me. I guess that would be the line thats crossed. Change my name to have some fun at my expense is fine and dandy but if you hate me and want me gone and then change my name...thats a different story and a claim for mod abuse might have some merit.

Certainly long time posters can get away with more than n00bs, but "sucking mod cock" doesn't really enter into the equation. I'm friends with several of them and have met some of them personally, but I do not approve of the some of the things they do, or more importantly, don't do, and I've never been shy about saying it.

I believe last night I referred to the bunch of them as the "assclowns that run this place." I really don't think that qualifies as kissing ass.

I don't have any personal hard feelings with any of the mods, but it's important to challenge their questionable decisions from time to time just like it's important to resist calls for more and more rules if we want to preserve the free wheeling, but sometimes abrasive, nature of this website. The natural tendency is for gradual change toward the standards of all the other, more-boring, but safe, message boards on the Internet and I don't think that's really what we want. I know it's not what I want.
