For the initial release we've discussed/decided that it'd be smart to go into things with a ban list mirrored from /vg/ and Bay (possibly also Paradise). Basically anyone who looks like a serial griefer will be banned pending a forum appeal (which should be pretty lenient given it's a new server, etc). This may be perceived as harsh but the opening period is going to be a lot of traffic with a handful of new admins and any measure that can be taken to reduce potential for chaos is worthwhile.

Going to dump some links here to pick through later to put together an initial ban list:

Yeah, I would like to play this server, but just banning everyone on that list is dumb.

I just re-read it and picking through it carefully and CHECKING sounds good

If your crime was, as you say, "Death Metal Newspaper," You'll not get banned. If you're lying, you likely will.

Own up to it, ask to be put on a probation, and not be a cock.
Speaking from experience.

When Zuhayr says about mirroring the ban list, he's not talking about banning people who did a dumb thing and got banned for that. He's talking about the people who basically just logged into X server and blew half the station up, who just obviously aren't there to actually play. If you were banned for writing a newspaper, you'll be fine.

I made a death metal newspaper on a slow round on Paradise called: "Cannibalistic centepede holocaust" and wrote a slasher movie trailer in it that contained the phrase: "as the blood elephants advanced, so did the pedo nazis". The captain issued a D notice on it and I was going to be arrested, but the admin pmed me asking if I think that what I did was wrong. I said "no". Nowhere in the rules does it say that you can't write newspapers of bad taste. Got permabanned and the ban reason that the admin wrote does not represent what actually happened. After I went to appeal, I got told that I "needed to learn some human decency".

I still have the screenshots and I'd post them as soon as I get a charger for my laptop.

Provided your ban reason doesn't twist that into "exploded half the station for no reason", you should be fine.

After doing some checking and discussing it on IRC with the rest of the community, ban mirroring won't be happening. Way too much work for no guaranteed impact, and if someone wants to get onto the server they will bypass their ban via a new key or a VPN anyway.
