    Default Proposal: Lifting Thegsg's ban

    Following heated discussion in the new members thread, it has been decided that a poll is in order to settle this issue.

    Thegsg was originally banned for coming onto the server without meeting the requirements. It was later found out here that Nhy informed him of the rules and advised him to come to the forum first before logging onto the server, advice he ignored.

    He has returned with the required 200 posts and now seeks re-admission to the server: a request challenged by some.

    Personally, I was open to lifting it until Nhy came forward and informed us Thegsg had been previously informed of the potential dangers of bypassing the forum. Now, I am unsure: everyone does stupid things, and Nhy has said he was simply over-excited because he'd never been on SMP before. On the other hand, he was told to come here first and willfully ignored that.

    As such, a vote: Yes, No or Abstain. Vote will close in 3 days.

    Edit: Specifics of his ban

    Nhy gave Thegsg the server IP at school and informed him to first stop by the forum, as going to the server first was a bad idea. Thegsg ignored this and logged onto the server, whereupon he was banned. He then appears on the forum, learns of the 200 post rule, and proceeds to gain the 200 posts. He has now returned, wanting the ban lifted. The sticking point is: does ignoring Nhy about reading the rules and simply logging onto the server constitute an offence serious enough to keep him banned?

    Does he know the rules now? How did he break them to begin with?

    He did not grief or damage the server, do we have concrete evidence of Nhy's statement??? Maybe Thegsg thought he could greet everyone on the server itself? Nowhere in the rules does it say about introducing yourself on the forums.

    He logged on, refused to say who he was or got the ip from and was banned. I dont think he did anyting other than looking around

    he had massive lags,much like the ones i used to have.

    for those who vote no:
    so what do you propose?ban him forever just because he didnt introduce himself on the forums?
    also introducing yourself was not a rule at the time.

    It is a twc server, for twc members, you would expect that this would go without having to say it.

    Also, I voted no, because someone who joined twc just for minecraft, and spammed 200 posts to get there, shouldn't be allowed on the server. And there's the fact that he entered the server without even signing up on twc (even when the person who gave him the ip told him to sign up and introduce himself).

    Nobody has told me if he knows the rules and intends to follow them. This is the only thing that matters.

    It is a point that ferrets sticky rule thread does not specify the 200 post requirement (Ferrets, could you possibly update that?), but it was in effect when he was banned and when he came to the forum. If you check his first ever post, you'll see I replied to it immediately informing him of the 200 post requirement.

    Ferrets: I presume he knows the rules now, having been on TWC and gained 200 posts. The issue many have is with him knowingly bypassing the forums, despite warnings against doing so, and coming straight to the server.

    Some of the posts on the New Members thread suggest prejudice... He did not help himself but he did not grief before. I don't see what is wrong with giving him a chance.

    Lift the ban. If he breaks a rule we can still ban him.
    Some day I'll actually write all the reviews I keep promising...

    I want evidence that the person who gave him the ip told him to introduce himself - he could just be covering his arse.

    I think TWC is far more than just TW games now.

    If he posts in this thread saying he knows the rules and will follow them I will vote yes. Not before.

    Follow my link, you'll see Nhy's account and he was the one who gave him the IP.

    Did I ever say that twc was all about tw games? Not that I know of.
    What I was saying, was that it's a server intended for people who use twc, not people that don't have twc accounts, but do have friends that give them the ip to the server.
