I dunno, there is one particular user I see has a "temporary ban" here who I thought was Mr. Messageboard. He started so many threads on so many useful topics (usually on individual titles) I thought he worked here. So clearly whatever crack-down is occurring is sweeping up more than just the occasional troll or screamer. (That said I have no idea what he did, so maybe he has his bad days too.)

Can you PM me with secret information?

Seriously, though, specific bans are something you'd have to ask the individual user about. What'd they do? Break a rule, or two, or fifteen. But it's not something to be gossiped about, please. If you want to ask them, PM them. If you want to know if something is specifically against the rules, report it, or ask a mod and we can tell you.

Has there been a rise in bans lately? Hard to say. I know I've given out tons of warnings, and also been handing out short bans, mostly for trolling and harassment lately. If anything, I'd say my rate of bans has gone down overall, however.

(Oh, and lots of bans for spambots. Hate those.)

Don't mistaken other users that voluntary ask to be banned. They're banning themselves in order to focus on their upcoming exams and other commitments.

what's this live stream??????


During some conventions Crunchyroll sets up a camera near their booth, and streams it on crunchyroll with a chat feature. Most often it's a way to see some cosplayers and interact with them, but at bigger cons Crunchyroll does some "stage events" such as interviews, or cosplay contests, and at one con we got to watch the mangaka who does Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches draw, and ask questions.

These normally get announced in Site News, and when it's going on there will be a small video in the corner of the home page, with a link that goes to the full page with chat -- here's the link (but of course right now there is no stream, just a placeholder left over from the Rooster Teeth Expo: /live

Occasionally they livestream a little viewing party, where some of the staff are watching and commenting on one of the shows that CR has, and we can watch it with them and chat. I'm not sure where that gets announced (facebook or twitter maybe?) because I'm usually completely unaware that it's happening.

Apparently some people are viewing the mods as strict/bad people, when that not really the case in here. If fact most of the mods in here really are very nice and friendly, compared to other sites I have visit in the past. Plus let's be honest in here, you can't just expect yourself to break a rule ones or even twice on any site and expect things to act normal like nothing happen, there's a big reason as to why there's sites rules to begin with you know.

Anyways if people don't wanna get bann or anything, you know what you can do? here is the answer: Be respectful with everyone, don't do personal attacks on someone, don't troll the forums and follow the sites rules, and you'll see that we all going to have good time.

P.S: As for the live stream, I encounter a lot of comments that are way over the top....so yeah!

Can't say I entirely agree with any of the bans that mods do but some of the actions are deserved so I can't really blame them but i've been seeing less bans but probably a bigger influx of warnings

Well, yeah, I think that certain things shouldn't result in instabanning, while others should. If you're particurally problematic or causing trouble, I'd say just skip the warnings and go to instaban but if it's something minor, then give them a few warnings beforehand. Of course, I'm not a mod, so why does my input matter?

To be honest in some cases I think they deal pretty fairly, and in others I'm like "EH?", but hey, I haven't 100% recited the rules by heart and witnessed them often directly being broken.

Has anyone noticed that CR's been attracting a lot of spammers giving links to bogus shopping or virus filled "movie" sites lately, though?

Now that's just plain annoying, is there a way to permaban these guys, assuming they're not coming from a thousand different IPs or locations, which I doubt they are, by their IP addresses, or can they not do that? I have been reporting them like MAD everytime I see them because spammers are nasty little ugly gnats that need to be squished on contact, but for some reason some of em have come back and tried to be more covert, it doesn't work, but it's like, is there any way to stop them from popping up like bad pennies?
