What happens when you are put in "Time Out"? Can you just not post while in time out?
Indeed, it's a temporary ban while you go away and think carefully about whatever naughtiness you've committed.
You can't post mostly.
Unspeakable horrors.... *shudder*
How do you get put in time out?
If you don't know what a time out is, you've likely been spanked all your life.
I'm quite sure if you ask nicely, a moderator will be glad to spank you instead.
Though, if they give you the option of the Steve Jobs iPaddle, you might want to start running -- since it still has some bugs to work out.
I ripped the head off a puppy, filmed it, and posted it here on MR.
i do wish in timeout you could log in but not post just so you could contact a moderator
as it is now once you are in timeout, you cant get any feedback whatsoever
This might give you a bit more of an insight.
Can't you use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom right of the page?
I was just in another thread and there were several posts by an established member who was in time out. His avatar was not visible but he was obviously posting.
I've caught myself getting uptight about things from time to time then I feel bad about it. It's not worth it and other people get sucked into the drama too.
IMO, overall the MR community is a decent and interesting lot. Once in a while there are a few bumps in the road but nothing too major. The good points still outweigh the bad points by far.
no he was not posting. those posts were prior to him being in time out
you cant log in if in time out...i know
Me too. The last one was 10 days. Any better out there????
a 10 day timeout?
That might be a new way for MR to make some extra money... especially if you can pick your own mod
He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy.
So you better be good, for goodness' sake.
I slit my wrists everyday because I got depressed.
Breaking the rules; flaming other people (even if it's for good reason), spamming, not using multiquote, etc.
Think mine was the same; it wasn't fun at all. That's the default setting in vBulletin for time-outs.
BTW, these are the available choices:
I find the last 2 temp-ban times quite amusing.
hmm i have had 2 timeouts and both have been for 24hrs
maybe theres a scale of severity?
I love this one!
Instantly Bannable Offenses
2. Spam and overposting.
Does anyone remember madjew? Is this what happened to him?
maybe he banned himself being a mod and all lol
I miss that rascal, he was always fun!
now the legend known as lacero was fun lol
lacero was before my time, but I've heard of him!
Damn I need to disappear one day
I bet if you sent a PM to a mod they could accommodate your request.
