Default Banning?

I made a thread before about this topic but it was deleted. In it I simply stated that I think it would be nice if the mods/admins would tell people before they are banned why they are banned. In fact, the rules state that they will do so. This is directly copied and pasted from the official rules of webkinzinsider:
Click the image to open in full size. Forum Rules -- READ before Posting!!
WELCOME TO WEBKINZINSIDER.COM! We're glad to have you here!

We feel these guidelines will be useful for the Mods in terms of managing the forums, but just as importantly, we hope they provide users a point of reference with which to understand the basic nature of WI and also to gauge why a post may have been moderated. The ultimate aim of it all though is to enable you to ENJOY contributing to WI and for others to ENJOY your contributions.

What is set out below is not an absolute set of rules and regulations. It will be necessary at times to moderate posts for reasons that are not outlined below.

Absolutely NOT: Things deemed to be totally unacceptable:

* Pornographic material
* Racism
* Overt personal abuse or threats to other posters or staff
* Swearing (There are kidz here for Heaven's Sake!)
* Harrassment of other users or posting anything which would invade their privacy
* Spam/Commercial advertising
* Registering and using duplicate accounts after being banned or for any reason.
* Creating fake news or doctoring of images for personal gain.
* All other breaches of the basic Forum Terms & Conditions in place at your time of registration or at any time during your membership of WI.

We are aware that the posting of images not yet released by Ganz is permitted on other Webkinz Fan sites, but it is not allowed here on Webkinz Insider. Those images, which have been lifted out of the Ganz system without their authorization, still fall under the copyright of Ganz. Posting them without the permission of Ganz is against the law and therefore is expressly forbidden on Webkinz Insider.

Guidelines: Things we'd rather you not do:


* Creating duplicate threads Before starting a new thread use the search feature to check that the subject of your intended post is not already covered by an existing thread. Post to existing threads wherever possible.
* Starting threads in the wrong forum We believe the board descriptions on the index page are fairly self explanatory, but feel to ask a mod if you aren't sure.
* Using 'Text Speak' in your posts Please take the time to write replies in English.
* Posting entirely in capital letters Please do not post the subject or content of your posts entirely in capital letters. It scares us.
* Being rude to fellow members You don't like being called names or pushed around, please treat others as you would like them to treat you!
* Thread domination Do not try to bully someone into submission or disparage every comment they make, simply because their views may differ from your own. Write a coherent reply setting out your views and then let others have their say.
* Anonymous Sourcing If you copy and paste an article, piece of news or rumor to the forum please include a link to the original website source or explain where and the context of how you heard the story.
* Putting your trade list in your signature/profile Trading is only meant to be done in the Marketplace and within your own thread. By putting your trade list in your profile, you are advertising your items for trade outside of the Marketplace and in other people's threads which are both against the rules of the Marketplace.
* No RED or BLUE ink This is reserved for the moderators and admin to edit posts
* No bumping outside the gift exchange. Bumping is only allowed on your thread in the GE

What to expect in terms of moderation:

If you ignore any of the ABSOLUTELY NOT rules, you'll be moderated in one of the following ways:

* Temporary or Full access ban.
* Temporary posting ban.


If you ignore any of the Guidelines, in the first instance you'll be notified by a moderator, who will let you know what it is they deemed to be inappropriate. Your post(s) are also likely to be edited/deleted or merged with others.

If you continue to ignore the Guidelines, you'll will find youself being moderated in the same manner as if you violated one of the ABSOLUTELY NOT rules.

The above may also apply to posts reported to us via the 'Report To Moderator' feature.

What you can expect from us:

* Where possible/applicable, new users will be given a polite pointer to these guidelines if we deem it necessary.
* An explanation as to why you have been temporarily/permanently banned/had posting rights removed.
* We won't notify people of every little modification/deletion/merging activity.
* An explanation will always be given for why a thread is locked or moved to another forum.

Please note: This is an active online community. As such, it may be necessary for us to amend the posting guidelines from time to time to reflect the changes to the site and its users. We'll inform you of any changes.

Regards,
WI Admin.

So if this thread is closed again I would like to have a reason why since the rules say that I am entitled to that right. If you agree or disagree with me please post!

Why would they need to? In fact, if someone did something incredibly bad, they deserve to be banned in an instant. They don't need a warning.

Edit - Just my opinion, btw.

Sometimes people don't know what they did wrong and sometimes people are assumed guilty before they are proved to be. I also think it would be helpful to the other members so they can know what kind of consequences come with certain actions.

It doesn't say anywhere in the rules that we can't talk about banning.

Default Re: Banning?

Ok, here is my question for you.... how do you know that the person that was banned didn't get any notification?
I believe this site is one of the safest and well run sites on the net.... what happens to other people is between the person and the Admin.....

Funny- I was just viewing that thread. I believe that consequences do not need to be warned, if somebody did something bad/wrong, then they deserve to be banned or have a consequence. If somebody was going onto temporary ban, then they should be told what they did (Even though they already may know) after the ban. Just like real life, there are always consequences. When threads and such are deleted, then you can just go to the User CP Home and go under Recent Modifications (Or something like that ) and it will give you the last five actions done by a moderator or administrator, and it will tell you why it was done.
Have a great day!

People are banned for major infractions or multiple violations of the rules. Anyone who is banned knows exactly why it happened.
