I know that many people will flame this topic but I just wanted to recomend that notch makes ipban temporary, why? because there is a lot (even if you people come were and disagree) of admins that are 10 year old kids who ban for no reason, now most people will be thinking "hey this is just a griefer who comes here to try to be unbaned!" but that's not the case I know some guys (some of them who bought the game) that have the same problem, I am banned in many servers just for talking and I don't mean spam I mean talk like a small discussion, etc... I got banned in a server today just for defending a friend of mine who was ipbanned imediatly without warning nor good reason, he was erasing some TERRAIN blocks to construct something while some guy was griefing something that we was doing before (and he didn't tell me this I saw it) so what I am asking is to make ip ban temporary like be banned for a week or in extreme cases a month because I think this is more then enought to keep griefers way, I know each server admins is the owner of their server but even so it's unfair to some people to be banned with no apparent reason, I am currently a free user I am thinking of buying the game but now (and I am not lieing just to give me reason) I don't know if I am to buy because I don't want to buy a game where I can't play in multiplayer servers just because of some kids.
P.S.: Sorry for the english I am Portuguese :smile.gif:

You are a liar and a whiner. I was the one that banned you and your friend. Your friend was erasing blocks i was using to repair damage another player left. We have a ZERO tolerance policy on all SCE servers, so the first time someone jacks around, they lose our trust and get banned by IP. People spend a ton of time building stuff and its not fair for people to come in and destroy their creations. We strive to protect the players who dont come to ruin other peoples fun. When you argue with a decision we make and continually insult and harass players as you did, you lose our trust and we will simply ban you forever from our server.
There is no such thing as freedom of speech on a server. A server is not a democracy. If you cause problems, expect to be banned. I hope the developer does not make IP bans temporary, because we do not want people like you coming back to our server.
A server is the administrators, they can do whatever they like. If you don't like it, move to a new server. Sure, it'd be nicer to have an alternative but there isn't. Play somewhere else :smile.gif:
But what if you have made someone OP and that persons starts IP banning people all over the place. You would like to remove the ban then, wouldn't you?
That can be done by the main administrator. The point of an IP ban is to be permanent, I've never IP banned anyone because I see it as the final thing, if they're getting beyond annoying and keep coming back then I would IP ban them. It doesn't make sense to remove the permanent nature of an IP ban, if they don't need to be banned permanently then use a kick.
A server is the administrators, they can do whatever they like, it's private and we have no "rights", so if they want to ban everyone they can and complaining about that is stupid.
