    Okay, I don't think we should keep this conversation going. It's the rules thread and we're getting off topic, essentially breaking the rules.

    More often than not, when someone says "That's gay", they're not saying it's happy or joyful...

    True, true... I remember the days when I thought that was the only meaning...

    But lets stop going off topic like Ryuu said.

    It's an expired warning so it doesn't matter at all, plus I know why the person gave it to me.

    Alright, guys, I don't wanna give out infractions in the new infraction thread but we really have to reserve this topic for people asking questions about the system.

    Since this is a sticky thread for asking questions I'm assuming the thread revival rule doesn't apply. Where is porn on this list? Imo porn is a lot more serious than sockpuppeting or being a spambot so I would probably include that. As well as hijacking accounts. This list is really empty.

    I'm almost positive that pornography is covered in the vBulletin ToS that all members must agree to upon registering. Not sure about the account stealing thing though.

    Really though, I doubt anyone would be stupid enough to try either of those, or any other action that's obviously a no-no, and try and get off by saying "Well, it wasn't in the rules, how was I supposed to know." If you're not sure if you're doing something you shouldn't be, just use common sense. If you're still not sure, ask a mod.

    Regardless of common sense, it would save a lot of time to just cover it in the rules. I don't know a single forum on the web that doesn't cover pornography in its rules. Account hijacking is generally not covered although some sites don't get so mad about that so whatever suits bmgf.

    Okay, I've got a question about double posting. Is it okay to double post to your own sprite thread in the artist section, when you add new sprites (because I think that's updating)?

    Well, you can edit your post. Simply click the button that says "edit" and I do believe that you will get a warning as you are a new user, and the rules state (well they did the last time I checked) that should a user break a rule, they receive a warning for said rule, and after that they get infractions.

    I'm not sure if this the correct topic to post in, but I feel that it's fair to at least ask for the reason behing this.

    A lot must have noticed by now that Maxim has been banned from the forums. While he's known for his disagreements and his kinda abrupt speech, I think that anyone can agree that his opinions are always justified by his part, and although unique to most, they are not to be critisised just for that. After all, if there wasn't someone with a different opinion, all discussions would be kind of unnecessary, and the place much more boring itself.

    Furthermore, his contribution to the Pokemon community is not be overseen. Both in Bulbapedia and forum threads he has been a great help for Bulbagarden to reach the level it is right now. Even with arguing, in fact. To put it politely it is mostly embarassing for the Bulbagarden administration team to treat him like that.

    To get into the topic, the reason he was banned was because of this post. Because he said "I am the only one who wants to blow NoA's headquarters up now?!", to be more specific. Needless to say this is a ridiculous reason for a permanent ban or even a point of infraction, as he was obviously being sarcastic.

    Concluding, while I know a lot of members generally disagree with Maxim, I believe that it is totally biased, not to mention unfair, for him to be banned for this, or any of his posts for all it matters. To the level I know him, I can assure you that he's a great guy. I'd say he is misjudged probably because of being too honest. :P

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately, that is the problem with Internet-based communications, there is no way to tell if he is being serious or not and generally, threats like that have the potential to get the forum/website in deep shit.

    As a matter of policy we don't talk about why specific users get specific bans.

    That said, it is against the rules to wish for death of anyone on these forums.

    As evkl said.

    Death and physical violence are among the very, very, very few things we do not fuck around with. If you cannot express yourself without resorting to wishing for somebody's death, you are not welcome here.
