Due to the events of the last week-plus, there will now be new rules and regulations for suspensions and bans on the forum. As approved by the majority of the forum community who voted on the proposal, these new rules will be implemented immediately:
1. A 3-strike approach with forum behavior. Any of the following may be subject to a warning:
*Harassment toward other members
*Other miscellaneous conduct deemed inappropriate by either the forum community/community manager
-1a.After 2 warnings, the offender gets a suspension of 5-7 days. After 3, banned permanently. If offenses are severe enough, an auto-ban might be warranted.

2. Auto-bans are given out for making spam posts, akin to the kind we saw back in 2012-2013 with WoW Gold, boner pills, and the like.

3. If you are found to have a multiple account, that multiple account will get banned, and the original account (deemed as the earliest sign up date out of the accounts) will receive a warning.
-3a. If you are making a multiple account for legitimate reasons as deemed by the Community/Community Manager (i.e. forgetting a password to an old account), no warning will be given, but activity on the old account will be monitored closely.
--3a.1. If the old account comes back into fruition (as deemed by factors including, but not limited to, last user activity) with the new account, without proper explanation, the punishment from Rule 3 will be given immediately.
Please keep these rules in mind as you converse in the forum. We like people having friendly discussion about this classic game, but please do not get too out of hand.

Thank you for visiting and using the MLB Power Pros Forums!
