Important Announcement: Please Everyone Read

Postby Arsenal~Fanatic » Sat Feb 27, 2016 6:24 pm

Now with all the talk about bans, the GW staff would like to lay down a few things regarding the same. Now these are non negotiable.

After careful and lengthy discussions we have come up with clear cut rules as to how bans will be handled from now onwards.

There will be a separate thread in the announcement section as to the id of the poster and the length of the ban given. If the said poster returns with a different alias/user id before his/her ban period is over, then his/her ban will be made permanent. There will be no negotiation/reconsideration.


Also we would like to make one thing very clear that bans are handed after considering all the circumstances so we do not want people littering the threads as to why and how a certain poster was banned. If you need any clarification you can communicate about the same via PM to one of the staff members.

We have noticed a lot of name calling especially on match days. Irrespective of the nature of the instigation name calling and personal abuse will not be tolerated.

The mods are there at your service if you have any grievances.

We have a duty to make this forum a great place for everyone.

If you cannot disagree with a poster respectfully then do not reply.

Disagreement and different point of view is what keeps this forum going.

Every opinion however in a minority it may be needs to be respected even if you do not agree with the same.

On match day threads especially when the result is not in our favor the forum becomes a battleground of bruised egos. On a match day thread plenty of fans of other clubs visit to read and we want the forum to maintain a certain decorum.

Quality of the forum is paramount for us. Let the mods handle their jobs and you will be given every support as long as you abide by the rules of the forum.

Have you considered adding a specific forum section for ban appeals in case someone feels his ban was unjust? As far as i am aware it is the norm on most forums and i feel like adding that option would minimize the creation of alt accounts.

We don't intend to turn the forum in to a court room. So the answer is No.

A poster is never banned straight away unless there is a really serious offence. He/She can always approach the mods via PM.

Talking of match days...

Can anything be done to stop the silly amount of topics being made that are 9/10 knee jerking shite?

Hence the reason I called for the match reaction thread. Worked well on other forums and completely stopped here. Saves 50 threads talking about the same thing.

I look forward to this place being a much nicer place to post after games if these rules are upheld.

This!

Excessive sarcasm is honestly over the top at times here. There's a certain poster who posts sarcastically in every post (Not Cripps). Every post is about how Ozil is crap (Sarcastically), how some crap player is top quality, etc, etc. Gets really boring after a time
