    Hey guys, just wanted to update you on some changes that the squad and I have agreed upon.

    Previously, the bans looked like this.
    First Ban: 1 Hour
    Second Ban: 24 Hours
    Third Ban: 1 Week
    Fourth Ban: 1 Month
    Fifth Ban: Permanent Ban

    Updated version
    First Ban: 24hrs
    Second Ban: 1 Week
    Third Ban: 2 Weeks
    Fourth Ban: Permanent Ban

    Just a small change, but 4 was too much and 1 month for the last one is silly. The 1 hour ban is pointless if we can give out timeouts.

    Future Name Changes

    So, as you guys know, we recently got rid of the purchasable name changes. We've agreed that we should have a way to make changes if needed in the future.

    1. You are only allowed to change it once. We will keep track of who changed their names in a thread or somewhere else.

    2. You have to give us a half decent reason. Asking for a name change because you just want one is not a valid reason.

    3. Have you changed it before? If you have, we will more than likely not give you the option. This will be up to our discretion.

    4. If you want to submit a request, PM either King K, Tpop or PGen and we will be happy to assist.

    I hope these changes work out for everyone. Thank you.

    Sounds fair and the name changes are a nice balance. Just would like to see more use of the timeout feature as sometimes I find it would work better than to just straight out ban someone.

    Interesting. I like it. Good decision by the mods here.

    P.S. Screencap this, me complementing the mods is a rare occurrence thus far.

    All good in the hood bro.

    I've thought about a name change. Blues Clues is pretty stupid.

    New rules seem good, I like them. Also wanted to point out that these should be added into the Rules/FAQ

    These rules are fair. I also like the idea of a thread where you keep track of all the name changes. I can't tell you how many times I've been confused because of incessant name changes.

    The new rules are fair. I also like the thread idea with keeping track of user name change, easier to tell who they were before.

    This forces people to be on better behavior now, cause they can be punished more severely than before. I like :)
