INTERNATIONAL GAMERS FEDERATION - BANNING PROCEDURE WRITTEN DECEMBER 4, 2018 by @Otto Rosmarus (Walrus) & @Robert Vicks (gamerz971) LAST UPDATED: 12/04/2018 [MM/DD/YYYY] ATTN: ALL ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF In the unfortunate event that a user must be banned from one (or all) of our servers, the staff member(s) dealing with the user should make every reasonable effort ensure they inform them that they are being banned (temporarily or permanently) and why. Written or verbal notice is acceptable. If staff are unable to make contact with the user, or they must be removed immediately, staff are required to try and follow up on our forums as soon as possible to ensure the user is aware and understands why they were banned. If this is not possible, staff must indicate in the ban report that they were unable to make contact. Once the user has been banned from one (or all) of our servers, the staff involved must submit a ban report [you can do so here] within 24 hours of the ban. If the user was on the player watchlist [click here], please indicate that they were banned and provide a link to the report. Here’s a quick rundown of the banning procedure: User commits infraction(s) Staff are notified/witness and speak to the user Staff make final verdict and inform the user why they are being banned Ban user (temporarily or permanently) Submit ban report Ban Reason Format
This is the standard ban format all IGF administrative staff are required to adhere to. We employ a standard format to ensure that bans can be quickly identified, key information is readily available, and it ensures clarity across the board.
<Banned Username> | <Reason(s)> | <Length> | <Issuing Staff Member(s)>
<User IP Address> | <Reason(s)> | <Length> | <Issuing Staff Member(s)> Examples of the format in use: 127.0.0.1 | Disrespect | 2 Days | Kris GloriousWalrus | Impersonation of IGF staff | Perm | Walrus John Doe | Fail RP x2 | 7 days | Gamerz Snakemanwill | Griefing | Perm | Walrus Ban reasons
Each division of IGF has different specific ban reasons, please click here to view ban reasons. Please note that using a listed reason or the given length is not mandatory, it is to serve as a guideline or template. That said, obviously do not give someone a ban length that is 10x longer than the precedent. Lastly...
Remember that the International Gamers Federation was founded on the premise of transparency and effective communication, and in an effort to continue this, we ask all administrative staff to ensure users understand why specific actions were taken against them. We’ve created this and other procedures to ensure that we have a uniform approach to dealing with issues - it makes reporting, reviewing, and appealing much faster and less complicated. Please acknowledge below that you have read and understand (“R&U”) this document. By doing so, you are indicating that you understand this document and are agreeing to follow the procedures and formats laid out above. All administrative staff, including community management, are required to indicate they have read and understood this document. We do this to ensure all administrative staff are on the same page and are aware of what is expected of them. We want to have the best staff team around. Thank you for your understand and continued cooperation in this matter. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT MYSELF @Otto Rosmarus (Walrus), SOMEONE ON THE MANAGEMENT TEAM, OR ASK A FELLOW STAFF MEMBER. If you understand and agree to these guidelines, please reply to this thread notifying community management that you agree to abide by the above guidelines, as well as other community guidelines. I’d also like to personally thank each and everyone of you for your continued commitment to our community. Without you we would be in over our heads, you guys do so much for the International Gamers Federation, and for that I am forever grateful. Keep up the great work team! ❤️ "R&U"
