    Everyone has the option to get a second chance, if a banned member emails us (bans@gamebanana.com), apologizing for their actions and we genuinely believe they have changed / won't repeat their behavior we will un-ban then.

    Eh. each ban is an individual case and handed out as such, and the same would go for any un-banning that may occur. That's the way it should be and, as far as I know, the way it is here so I don't really see what there is to discuss :3 as long as the admins are consistent and fair with the banning/unbanning process it's ok

    Considering how many times I've been banned I'm going to say yes.

    > **Posted by Hawkshadow741** > If they are banned as a result of several members ganging up and reporting them, yes > > if they submit content that's strictly against the rules (ie, Porn sprays/skins, viruses, etc) then no Yeah, you and the other guys who posted have a good point. There is something that I'd like to mention. If you guys remember, Kurd was banned for somehow exploiting a glitch and gaining sh!tloads of points. (He was also willing to give points to his buddies but I guess that just accelerated his likeliness for a ban.) Some time later on, I guess he made a second account (Kurd 2.0 or something) and that account was swiftly banned as well.

    > **Posted by Ganryu** > It honestly depends on what they do, like Geon stated. For example, let's say JoeBlow decided to pick fights with people on multiple occasions over some tiny little thing in certain submissions (let's say he was nitpicking certain details and others didn't agree with him) - that would be something that I'd give a second chance for, but with the warning that they'll be banned again if they continue that behavior. Now, if we have someone like UncleDolan/LordCowtopianTNT/whatever-the-hell-he-calls-himself posting pornographic images in their comments or uploading that kind of content as a submission, they are blatantly breaking the rules for their own petty amusement - the community does not need that kind of behavior around here, and therefore shouldn't be given a second chance. > > In short: it's one thing if users get into a heated debate that turns into an argument, and it's another if the user intentionally breaks the rules like an idiot for their own amusement. > > As for people that are blocked however, that function honestly shouldn't have been given to the users themselves. That honestly seems more like an administrative/moderation tool, and there are people who literally just get blocked for absolutely no reason at all. That unlock has already been abused, but I guess there's a reason for why it isn't a mod/admin tool only. Yes, good points. And yeah, that blocker unlock can sometimes lead a handful of situations to get out of hand. I got blocked by one guy when I was asking a friend to re-animate his submissions/models. Of course, some of you guys would tell me to ask his permission but he wasn't that active and I don't think he takes requests. He eventually blocked ME and not my friend (for whatever reason) without giving me a warning...

    If they are banned as a result of several members ganging up and reporting them, yes if they submit content that's strictly against the rules (ie, Porn sprays/skins, viruses, etc) then no

    yeah, it really depends on the crime they committed. People that start fights or something, they can be redeemed. But people that post offensive work or something, like nudity, should really count.
