This is the list of people who have been banned, with the official reason.

Since we are giving you the reason for the ban, there is no reason whatsoever to discuss a ban any further anywhere on this site. Furthermore, staff will not discuss the bans with the members in any way or hold a public discussion in this or any other thread.

EDIT: Since people do not seem to grasp this concept... we are not at all required to post reasons for any ban, and we are doing this on our will. So, if a ban is not posted, please do not question why it is not posted, or the thread will be closed.

Simply put, ban reasons are on a need to know basis, and really, you, as a member, don't need to know. We simply choose to let you know when we are not obligated to do so.

General Public has been banned because of recent conduct against some members on this site. He flamed and bothered some members and went directly against our warnings. He had been warned before on the same issue but did not cease his behavior. For doing that, he has been banned for three weeks.

He's been warned multiple times about spam and starting arguments. He was on his final warning when he posted a link to content that was highly inappropriate for TN (according to the Terms of Use).

Roadrail has been banned permanently. He was originally banned for 2 months due to excessive flaming and curse-blocker evasion. His ban was then extended to permanent because he signed up under a new name (which was deleted) to try to flame more, and was in the process of e-mailing a member via our boards to flame him.

Please do not ask us to elaborate on the specifics of the matter. Staff members will not discuss it further.

BryanWood

Pipesdrums was banned because he failed to stop spamming after he recieved two warnings. He also had two sigs in violation of the ToS during the day today, which also accounts in the decision for the 2 week ban.

Steven
08-18-2004, 01:13 AM
fefy81 was banned for evading his ban (as Fefy420) and continuing to advertise. As a result, his entire class C IP block was banned from TN, no one can sign up with usernames containing "fefy", and the owners of the sites that he advertised for were contacted.

For the record, we maintain a record of all deleted posts and threads, plus we also don't hesitate to contact ISPs with abuse complaints. Our record of getting user's ISP accounts shut down has been near perfect, with only one case where no action was taken. We will not hesitate to give them whatever they need to merit such a shutdown.

As a result of the "Save the Giant Wheel" thread that tailspinned, the following bans have been discussed by all of the admins and issued tonight:

Magnum Robert- 1 week. As a result of flaming and his persistent mocking of our members.

MagnunKelly-1 week. Her egging on of Coastermatt, using "stfu" to work around the curse-blocker (it's still the same), her frequent spamming/unproductive posts on the boards.

General Public-permanent. His ban is permanent because he has been banned a few times before. His frequent mocking of the members, spamming and other things lead to this ban placed by the admins.

Franchise was permanently banned for his account of unbuckling his seatbelt on Magnum. This is a violation of Ohio revised code section 1711.551 (http://onlinedocs.andersonpublishing.com/oh/lpExt.dll?f=templates&eMail=Y&fn=main-h.htm&cp=PORC/cc7e/d4f0/d5c7/d5ea), and a double violation of our Terms of Use. This is a significant violation of Terms of Use, and will not be tolerated in any form. This offense is also in accumulation to his previous two week ban for flaming.

Franchise's offending post (http://www.thrillnetwork.com/boards/showpost.php?p=517474&postcount=24). For his other ban, scroll up. TOU violations include General Guidelines (http://www.thrillnetwork.com/tos.php/messageboards#Guide%20line) and Park Rule Discussion (http://www.thrillnetwork.com/tos.php/messageboards#parkrule).


Cedar Points version of the revised code displayed in conspicuous locations.

Section 1711.551 of the Revised Code requires that riders must obey all warnings and directions regarding rides and behave in a manner that will not cause or contribute to injury to themselves or others. Failure to comply is a misdemeanor.

*Nitro* (http://www.thrillnetwork.com/boards/member.php?userid=8805) has been banned for two days for disregarding my changing of his signature and breaking the rule again.

His signature was 20 points, I changed it and linked to the rules, and he changed it back.

The lesson: Don't go against an administrator's actions and break the rules.

Update: His ban has been set to permanent ban, since he evaded it.

coastermatt has been suspended for 1 month due to harrassment/flaming another member with the private messaging system. He was warned previously to not do and told he would be suspended.

When it comes to harrassing/flaming PMs, we (as administrators, not moderators/editors) do have (and always have had) the ability to read everyone's PMs, and all we need to view them is one single complaint to have justifiable cause. The use of Private Messages and our ability to police them are governed by our Terms of Use (/tos.php/messageboards#privmessage).

The ThrillNetwork Terms of Use (http://www.thrillnetwork.com/tos.php/messageboards) states that "it is required that you maintain a valid e-mail address on record with us at all times."

Once this is corrected, he will be unsuspended.

I normally don't do this, but I am sick of those of you who make poor choices regarding other member's actions. This is from banned member ThrillRider247...


Um yeah i would just like to know why u banned me TWICE, if your doing it because of the language im using thats ****ED up. The only reason im acting like this is because ONE OF YOUR OWN ADDMINISTORS is being RUDE to other inncent memebers for no apprient reason and YOU arent avaliuating the situation AT ALL. Alan is picking on people and puttin them in check and goin off on them just for his own fun, numerious memebers plus me have went off on him and told him to stop and he DOESNT. What do u do? NUTTIN you bann me and let him keep up on his **** like its ok. IF you think the best thing to do is BANN me and not him them thats more ****ed up then what hes doing to inncent memebers. So i would please like my memebership back and i honestly think u should look more into what alan is doin. Thanx u soo much for your time

Cody

Here's my reply...



Cody,

I'm sorry to say that language and spelling like that won't get you back now (you can't even spell "ban" properly). Normally I give people 6 months time before they can ask for a reinstatement. But, I am not even going to give that to you. In other words, you nailed your last nail into your coffin here on ThrillNetwork.

You screwed yourself on that by failing to properly read the rules, which you did agree to upon registration. If you had problems with Alan, you could've contacted us about it. Instead, it was your actions that was reported to staff by other members, not Alan's, and based on the overwhelming evidence, we suspended your account. Then, you chose to evade it more than once instead of contacting us. The same goes with our staff members if you see issues. All of these were choices you made.

If you had been wiser, Alan might've received what he deserved. Instead, taking matters in your own hands landed you in the hot seat instead of him, and when that happens, I have zero sympathy for people who do that, as nothing ever gets solved.
