The Ban Hammer is an emotional tool which should not be used too often. However, sometimes bans are needed. Here some guidelines for admins to hold to.

Anonymous/newbies
  • Spambots - permaban/1 year (depends on type of IP)
  • Vandals - 1 month
  • Bullying/publishing offensive information - 1 month
  • Swearing/nagging at other users - 1 week
  • Cool block - 1 day

Repeated misbehaviour: multiply last ban period with 3 (so 1 week becomes 1 month).

Confirmed users

(let's say older than 20 edits): always ask for reason on talk page before banning

  • Spam - 1 week
  • Vandals - 1 week
  • Bullying/publishing offensive information - 1 month (zero tollerance)
  • Swearing/nagging at other users - 1 day
  • Cool block - 6 hours

Repeated misbehaviour: multiply last ban period with 3 (6 hours becomes 1 day).

If you don't agree with your ban, please send an e-mail to [email protected]!
