Default Don't You Think They Should Get An Explanation?

Well, when someone doesn't obey the rules and gets punished, don't you think they should get some sort of an explanation as to why this happened to them? I personally see it as unfair if the person gets punished without ever knowing what hit them.

Let's say, for example:

Person 1: I wonder what happened to Person 3, I know him on another site and he doesn't even know why he can't come on any more..

Person 2: Aww! Really? He was a super nice guy!

Person 1: I know! Remember that one time when he had me petsit his Webkinz for him........

Person 4: Hey, what are we doing? Talking about Person 3? He got banned?!?! Seriously?!?!? I need to go tell Person 5 about this....

This could lead to Person 1 and Person 2 to start talking about Person 3 and why he can't come on any more, which is breaking the rules, even if Person 1 and 2 don't know it. That can lead more people into the discussion and that'd mean that 4-5 people would get in trouble too.

The explanation could be sent as an e-mail or a PM. I would understand if the person doesn't want to share it with the whole world, but at least they would know what they did wrong. I think it would be much better for them if they knew what they did wrong here so they can fix themselves on other websites they may be a part of.

Again, I'll understand if this already happens of if it simply wouldn't work. Thanks for reading!

Post your ideas and comments please!

Hi puppies!

We're not supposed to be talking about banning here

But if someone did do something wrong, they do get an explanation of it. I'm pretty sure they do, because getting in trouble about nothing isn't very fair.

Right, and I'm not exactly talking about banning, just overall if someone gets in trouble...

Really? Because I've seen things where everyone's like "They got no explanation..."...

Oh, I see. I was referring to the part when you said "so and so got banned?"

On WI, you usually get a notice why. I haven't heard of someone that didn't, but sometimes people say that they didn't get an explanation because they don't want to share it or they don't think it's fair to them. You know what I mean?

When someone gets banned, they know the reason why. If they have any questions about it, they can use the contact us button on the bottom of the page.

I don't think that reasons for anyone having actions taken against them should be public knowlege. It's their business, not ours. Sure I've wondered why some people disappear, but it's not for me to know.

I believe that any one that does experience a problem does receive and explanation or warning by PM.

True, but I think it would be better if there was just an explanation anyway....

Right, but I've just heard reports of people not getting anything at all and being very confused as to why they can't come on anymore....

Well, yes, but that was just an example..

Right, I see what you're saying, but I've seen some people who've just gotten in trouble and have absolutely no idea why...

They could be saying that they don't know the reason why, but really they do. There is a message attached when they are banned and they read it. We don't make it public knowledge as to why someone was banned, it is between the staff and that person. IF they have questions, that is why the contact us button is there

The Ethics on this site that the Administrators, Moderators, Gift Coaches, Founders, ect. Stand by would not tolerate someone not getting an explanation for anything wrong or right.
So, i would look back at your friend and decide, maybe they just don't want you to know.
I have not met anyone yet that would not help me with something or if they don't know they find someone who can.
