    Default What would you do if you received a 30 day temp ban from this forum?

    In light of the recent threads about bans, here's a some questions I'm curious to hear your thoughts on:

    Would you complain about the ban to the admin and possibly risk being perma-banned or serving a longer temp ban?

    It depends on why I was banned and whether or not I felt the punishment was fair. If I know that I did something wrong and genuinely felt bad about it, I'd be inclined to accept my punishment. I might complain though if I felt the punishment was too harsh in proportion to what I did or if others exhibited similar behaviors and only received infractions or shorter bans.

    Would you still read the forums posts without logging in?

    Yes, but it wouldn't be the same as being able to participate. It would be difficult to get used to just lurking again when you used to be able to chime in with your reply. Some subforums I wouldn't have access to.

    Would you literally count down the days until your ban ends?

    Not sure. I'd probably experience withdrawl issues for the first few days but after that, I'd gradually think about it less and less. I'd probably find another forum to post on to pass the time. I might take note that my ban was just about done with but I don't think I'd exactly jump for joy.

    How would you feel upon returning to the forum once your ban was up? If you've never been temp-banned before, use your imagination.

    I've never been temp banned so I'm guessing here. Assuming I was still interested in the forum after my 30 days were up, I'd look forward to posting again. I would try hard to act civil and reverse any bad reputation other forum members may have had of me before the ban. I'd be more cautious about what I posted so I didn't get myself banned again. If I felt that I had to censor myself to a ridiculous degree to avoid further infractions or bans, I'd probably stop posting.

    Or would you be apt to forget about the forum entirely?

    It depends. If I found another forum in the meantime, I might become more interested in that forum. If I felt like I was banned unjustly and the majority of forum members were glad to see me banned, I wouldn't be interested in returning. I wouldn't want to be on a forum that treated its members unjustly or where I felt mostly unwelcome.

    If I received a 30 day temp ban, I would probably sulk for a minute. Check the forum once or twice a day, then one or twice a week. Then get on with my life. I doubt I would return. Hypothetically speaking.

    I would rant, tantrum and possibly stomp my foot!

    I would probably laugh about it. Make fun of myself for things that I said... Accept the ban. Maybe read some posts for a few days. Go on with my life, and come back in a few months when I thought of it again. I would behave better the second time around.

    I would just move on
    But I don't have a long history here anyway
    I have no sense of humour.

    I'll do other things.

    Actually lurking makes it easier to ultimately isolate yourself from the forum itself. When you're not investing as much as you once were, you're less likely to have any sort of attachment.

    I'd probably count down the days the first week, and eventually stop caring. I Probably wouldn't return until my curiosity gets the better of me, and I log on to see what has changed(which I doubt would be much). Quite honestly.. Once I don't have as much spare time as I do now, I doubt I'll be on the forum as much, and maybe make the occasional appearance.

    I definitely wouldn't forget the forum entirely. I think I've learned quite a bit on here, and I always remember such sources. However, remembering, does not equal a want, or a need to exist in it again.

    I don't know. I should have to try first. Okay, mods, please ban me for 30 days! Then I can answer this question properly!
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    I don't think the mods would do that here but I've actually seen other forums where members literally request temp bans and the mods grant their wishes. Most commonly this is with students who find they are spending too much time on the forum and need time away from the forum to focus on their studies.

    It would be an interesting experiment. If you can muster the willpower, just stay away from the forum for 30 days and then when you return blog about your experience.

    Not for a 30-day ban. I would just serve it and if I thought it was totally unfair I'd carefully state why when I got back.

    Would you still read the forums posts without logging in?

    Yes, I'd probably still check in here like once a day.

    Would you literally count down the days until your ban ends?

    I'd totally have the whole tally thing going.... lol, more like I'd have the date and time memorized that my ban is lifted.

    How would you feel upon returning to the forum once your ban was up? If you've never been temp-banned before, use your imagination.

    I would be scared but excited. My feelings of it would depend on what I got banned for.

    Or would you be apt to forget about the forum entirely?

    I'm way too attached to the forum to forget it anytime in the near future.

    Lets see...

    Phase 1: inital shock and utter disbelief that this has even occured at all.

    Phase 2: complete anger at the banning and lots of personal sadness :steam:

    Phase 3: bitter dissapointment at all the missed chances to post when I still do browse the forum.

    Phase 4: sorta try and deal with it and attempt to accept it as is. But still would eagerly awaite the end of the ban.

    Phase 5: return with warm welcome from others.
