After everyone's ban lasting only a day, It's kinda hard to be pissed about this. But I felt like I should point out some things about that thread. After I received my ban, it directed me to the bbs rules. After noting that none of us had broken any of them, I clicked on the art forum specific rules to try to dig for more. Then things got a little more interesting.
What you're looking at right now is a screenshot of the art forum rules. Underlined/bracketed in red is all the rules that the original poster broke. His thread was neither for the purpose of "critique, or serious artistic discussion". As he was rather quick to point out. He also broke the rule of posting directly to the forum. Seeing as how he claimed that the only image he posted had absolutely nothing to do with anything, the thread was just an advertisement for his website. He was also being a dick, so "negativity" is also underlined. He was not banned for any given amount of time.
Underlined in purple is what most of us gave. No one came in there specifically flaming. Underlined in blue is the one and only official rule that I could find that any of us broke. Which honestly, is broken by half the bbs daily, so whatever. We were all banned for 24 hours.
Among the blue and purple, was Big Johnny. he did not receive a ban though, because Turkey knows him better than the rest of us. Carrion was also banned for 24 hours, though I cannot find anything he did to be wrong.
So yeah, just felt like pointing all that out. I'm not trying to spark a fight or anything, but I just want to lay that out and show you why that was all pretty week. Lesson learned, be real nice to da mean peoples, you don't wanna hurt dare feewings. Even though my band reason was "being a douche." Doesn't make a lot of sense in retrospect, huh? :P
