For What Reason do People Get Banned?

    I see that a number of contributors occasionally get banned, so I wanted to inquire about the rules and expectations of posting here.
    What are common reasons people get banned for?
    Are people banned for accidents and nooby mistakes or only intentionally malicious activity?
    Are bans permanent and/or can the poster get back in.

    Not that I have any intention of getting banned myself, but as a regular reader its not immediately obvious why some poor chap appears have been banned.
    Cheers,
    Jag

    edit: that should be "Reasons" in the title, not reason

    I have one reason.
    - Some people ask for something not applicable for PocketMine or MCPE (a couple of times).

    People usually get banned for doing things like not following the posting rules (there are a few README threads per forum, if not, consult parent forums / descriptions). We have a warning system in place that bans people automatically with the corresponding amount of time. Warning points can accumulate, but they also expire. Other people just come here to troll, or get into fights. You will see a lot of people creating new accounts just to harass people here (and trying to get good people outside of the forums), that's the same old banned people that has sent me threat emails (or even called me IRL!)

    So to add onto what @shoghicp said, there's lots of times that people are only banned for a few weeks or months, while other times it is forever. Other accounts get banned quickly because they are secondary accounts made because their first was banned. It's a complicated system, but it all makes sense in the end. Sometimes people do things that I never expected them to do, and it's a bit sad, but one thing I learned early on in dealing with any community is that you have to follow through with everything and show no favoritism (which I have a hard time with sometimes, but so far haven't done such on here, because I usually don't have to deal out too many warnings).

    That's not what I meant. What I meant is that people request for plugins that cannot be made or be applicable for PocketMine or MCPE.

    Also by creating malicious plugins, tryin to spoof downloads, send a to review a lit of times a plugin that was refused, spam, keep annoying to other people or moderators, ask for OP via comments or PM, spam (again) because they want to apply to Plugin Reviewers, Moderators (Sectional or Global), they wanna be OP in @shoghicp's server (that it's private xD) or in @williamtdr's one... And the most common... Trying to evade bans, sometimes people get a temporary ban (Ex. 1 hour) and they wan't to enter the forums, so they create another account to enter, the forums detect that it's the same IP address from a temp. banned user and maybe he get a Beautiful LifeTime Ban provided by the system.
    A lot of things can give you warning points, I got a warning point last December... But I receive it one month ago :p that was weird

    XD I didnt even know people could get banned for that kind of thing. I thought it was just the more important stuff like what @iksaku said. XD

    Guys try understanding this

    Ban = Not following rules, Or to constantly do something wrong over a period of times

    Hope this helps :)

    I didn't see any rules about bumping threads and I got banned for it. I didn't see any forum rules for using GitHub as a forum and I got banned for it.

    Well then they should add it! I find it very annoying when a random guy makes an account and bumps a thread that's three years old!
