UberNinja banned from playing or moderating new games for three two weeks for discussing an ongoing game with Timeater (see above) when PMed by Timeater. He may continue to moderate his current games. Please note: discussing games outside of the game thread even when dead is against the rules.

EDIT: Reduced to two weeks from three due to mitigating factors. Any future violation will result in heavy sanctions.

chkflip is knocked down to one game of experience for moderation requirement purposes for moderator abuse in Mainstream Mafia, including editing a player's post to antagonize the player. This means he may not run a game in the Large Theme queue until he has moderated a game in another queue (or three micro games).

Aj The Epic and thezmon221 are banned from playing games for 3 weeks for discussing ongoing games. Any game they are still in will need to find a replacement. We apologize for any inconvenience this creates.

Please be aware that we take discussing ongoing games very seriously. This INCLUDES communications that occur off site, and it includes games that you are not personally involved in. Mods can modify this (allowing, for example, dead chats and the like), but without doing so, please keep commentary on the game to yourself, especially if there is a party present who is in the game.

Metal Sonic is banned from all games for one month for continuing to post in a game that he was replaced out of, even after acknowledging that the moderator had replaced him. The severity of this punishment is in light of his other recent ban, which was for discussing ongoing games, as well as his quoting of moderator PMs in Death's Diner, which resulted in a modkill.

Please note that once you are replaced or dead, cease posting. Mistakes can happen, but purposeful refusal to be replaced out is not acceptable.

reinoe has been permanently site banned for ruining games on another community. After being lynched, he PMed the participants of the game with the Scum's QuickTopic (unlike our Private Topics, having a link allows users to see who posted in the thread). The game can be found here (registration required). We are all members of a larger mafia community. It hurts Mafiascum in particular, but also forum mafia in general if our users engage in this type of abhorrent behavior. As one user on that site said:

Witherweave wrote:Note to self: never go to Mafiascum.


This is something we will not tolerate.

Moderators should replace reinoe in their games.

F-16_Fighting_Falcon and all associated alts have been indefinitely banned from the site.

After reviewing the circumstances of his prior bans, the administration has decided that F-16 should be removed from the site indefinitely. This is a very unusual action for us to take, and it is not something that we do lightly. The following were factors in this decision:

  1. F-16_Fighting_Falcon sent a user 21 hostile PMs in a short period of time, none of which -- after investigation -- were prompted or responded to by the user. These PMs display an obsessive, stalker mentality in an attempt to create an atmosphere of fear for the user.
  2. The above mentioned PMs are merely the most egregious examples of F-16's continued history of harassing this user, which spans multiple games and outside of the game queue.
  3. In discussions with the user, he attempted to deflect blame onto others and lied to the staff about his actions.
  4. He created a thread in MD that was a thinly veiled attempt to continue to harass a user. After an admin closed the thread, saying that it was closed, F-16 opened it again. The admin closed it. F-16 opened it. Whether or not this should be technologically possible, F-16 was clearly trying to circumvent the admin's actions.
  5. After having most of his alts banned, he got on one that was previously unknown to us to continue to PM other people.
  6. He has generally been abusive in the games he has played in, resulting in his recent 1-month game ban.

Nobody Special as well as the following alts are now banned. If you were in a hydra with NS in a current game, you should talk to your game mod to replace in with a different account.

The following accounts are banned:

Reevaluating bans is not something we do lightly, but given recent events that have clarified the importance of removing people from the site who have proven themselves to be dangerous to other members on the site, some bans have been revisited and action taken.

Nikanor has been banned indefinitely. We have been asked to keep the details confidential and given the circumstances will respect that, but the conduct that resulted in this ban is sufficient to believe that he poses an unusual risk to those on the site.

The following alts are also banned. Any that are currently in games need to be replaced:
Cuttlefish
roflwaffles
Krystal Bald (Hydra)
Olive
Oscar Wilde
D├®j├á V├®cu
Fuzzy Beavers
DrCuttlenut
Faranor

SilverWolf has been indefinitely banned from both mafia and discussion forums.

There was a protracted interpersonal conflict between Silverwolf and another user. The admin and mod team told both parties to cease discussing, PMing, etc. each other on the site. In response, Silverwolf immediately posted about the user in her GTKAS thread.

Given the sensitive and ongoing nature of the conflict, please do not start threads or posts to discuss the ban or conflict.

The following accounts are banned and should be replaced in any game:
SilverWolf
Call of the Wild (Hydra)
Anxiety Attack (Hydra)

Hydras may have their other user replace into the game under a different account.

Kappy has been banned for three months for intentionally causing disruption on the site and generally trying to test the boundaries of the mods. He has spammed site chat on multiple occasions, signed up for and then backed out of multiple games without contacting mods but rather by posting in GD about it, and did a similar thing in Mish Mash.

Finally, he went onto the wiki and changed over a hundred pages including official pages such as the Modding Requirements page.

Kappy has also been indefinitely banned from editing the wiki.

Kappy and all alts, including Descarus, should be replaced in any ongoing games.

House has been banned from the site for one year. He was last banned in July for two months for discussing ongoing games and being abusive. In the roughly month since he was unbanned, he has not only continued to discuss ongoing games, but he has upped his harassment. PMs sent with messages such as "Don't fucking threaten me, trash. You haven't experienced harassment" and discussing ongoing games while harassing other users via text message. This comes in addition to warnings sent to him over abusive Discussion behavior. Any future behavior will result in being permanently removed from the site.

House as well as the following alts must be removed from all games:
Cane + Able (Hydra)
Total Wreck
Evil Teddy Bear of Doom
iHouse (Hydra)
Samaritan (Alt)
Leather and Lace (Hydra)

RachMarie has been banned from Discussion forums for one month. This is a holistic ban that follows several warnings about her behavior. These include, among others, telling another user that she wants to adopt the user and become that user's mother, giving encouraging comments to a 20-year-old who was/is dating a 14-year-old, and unsolicited offering an amateur modeling job to a "photogenic" non-model person far her junior in Face With A Name.

Friendly reminder to all: please do not use 'retarded' as an insult.


karnos's ban is now a month site-ban for continuing to make personal attacks through his user profile. He must be replaced in all games.

Given mostly legitimate confusion over what wgeurts thought to be an instruction over sitechat from the game moderator (which was in fact a joke), wgeurts and ZZZX have their punishments changed to 14 days, no new games. They may not join new games during this period.

Therefore, if you have not already replaced either of these players, you may keep them in their game rather than replace them out.


---
Please make very sure before breaking site mafia rules such as "Do not quote communications with moderators" that the game's posted rules explicitly allow this behavior. If you're a mafia moderator, please don't joke about rule breaking being allowed: we have users from many different cultures here, and sometimes those jokes can be misinterpreted.

James3 has been indefinitely banned from the site for continuing to advocate for white nationalism and racism. This is immediately after he was unbanned for the same thing. In his short time here, he has advocated for Jim Crow, Apartheid, Fascism, and White Nationalism.

In addition, he was permanently banned from another mafia site where he ruined games by revealing all player and role identities.

zakk has been banned from the site for 14 days for attempting (and in the case of Chuck, succeeding) to get the password for other user's accounts and using it to hide his identity. He must be replaced in all games.

To be clear: sharing a hydra's password is acceptable and expected, but everyone should have their own personal mafiascum username. Do not ask or give a password to a regular account. Additionally, hiding any member's access on a hydra from the administration is not acceptable.

If someone asks you for your account password, please report this to the site moderators or administrators.

A rule has been added to make sure this is clear.

EDIT: Just to clarify, zakk did not "hack" anyone.

Accountant will need to be replaced in any game they are playing in.

Frozen Angel will need to be replaced in all games.

Also included (all hydras):
Frozen Jeanne

Garmr's current mafia ban is extended to site wide for starting this transphobic thread. "Trap" is a transphobic phrase used to describe "trapping" or tricking others by hiding one's biological sex. It is listed on the GLAAD website as defamatory language. Garmr has previously been warned for homophobic language as well as has received numerous bans and warnings for abusive behavior in games.

Garmr's ban will expire on February 20th, 2018.

edit: Fixed an error, apologies


This ban is changed to an official warning. The largest reason for the ban (rather than a warning) was that it appeared RC was ignoring the warnings from a Site Chat Moderator. While RC ignored a Site Chat Moderator, it's not sufficiently clear that the warning was officially given (rather than an attempt to deescalate the situation before a warning is necessary), and RC did back off once it was more clear the Site Chat Moderator was warning.

Please understand that ignoring Site Chat Moderators and Discussion Moderators warnings can and will result in bans. This is irrespective of whether you feel the warnings were justified. Please don't hesitate to take up complaints on these via PM/Personal Chat with the Site Chat Mod/Discussion Mod or bring those complaints to me via PM.
