Just here to document a few drastic changes to punishments and how things will be looking from this point onwards:
- All warns from before January 1st 2020 have been removed. This will help better reflect people's current attitude towards being a productive member of the community and allow many reformed users to leave the high warn count baggage behind them.
- Any ban that wasn't permanent has been removed. This is honestly a pretty meaningless change to you as a community, as bans very rarely surpass 4 days anyways. However the system we have in place does not "expire" a ban until that person rejoins the server once the ban has ended. So for the sake of our records, this helps us.
- We have increased the warn induced cooldown ban from 1 hour to 12 hours. This should help give the ban more meaning.
- We have decreased the permanent ban warn limit from 60 to 45. This in turn will also help give warns more meaning.
We have taken great consideration in this decision and it was not made lightly. We hope that this will help better the environment for everyone. If you have any questions, you're welcome to ask them here.
very epic thanks
