    Multiple accounts only break the rules when they are used to break rules or get around suspensions. Simply having one does not break a rule.

    posted a message on Suggestions Section
    If someone were to post a suggestion that would break the rules, but were unable to post it in the Suggestions section due to lack of appropriate post count, they would simply post it elsewhere, breaking more rules. All this proposed obstacle effects is rule-following users who have less than 25 posts, needlessly punishing them.

    posted a message on Ambiguous TOS
    If you feel your infraction was unjustified, it is best to put this sort of argument inside the infraction PM you received. If you feel that that discussion was not going anywhere and the moderator was "not listening", ask them to add their Forum Admin, who would be the last word on any such dispute. Complaining about your infraction in a public section does nothing but get third parties to comment on your situation, despite having only one side of the story, and is not the appropriate way to get your infraction removed.

    I never made a post wich didn't contain english so, by your words, I'm not a jerk. I know those posts bug some people but, please do not take this as an insult or a start to a fight, it is pretty unprofessional on your side to call users "jerks"
    I know it is common sense but it is not in the rules So those topic can't get locked/deleted unless they are spam. If you put in the rules that all posts need to be on english that would be a whole other story.


    If you are as well-versed in the rules as you seem to think you are, you would not have missed this disclaimer:

    posted a message on Need new forum for the MCPE other platforms MCPE: Redstone Alternatives
    Quote from Aegislash


    Redstone alternative is a way of Redstone that us mcpe players use for redstone since it just so happens that redstone is not in the game yet.


    If it doesn't involve Redstone it might be best to avoid calling it Redstone.

    posted a message on Minecraft Forum app?
    Quote from zhriz

    doesn't make sense to be that "there isn't going to be one" when there is such a high demand for one.

    What has been stated in past is that a new forum platform is being developed for the Minecraft Forums. Creating a mobile app for the current forums will be too time-consuming when it would have to be recreated to be compatible with the new platform soon after. Also, I hear the new platform will be a lot more mobile-friendly.

    Quote from Stucuk
    Aka, we won't give out your house address but anything you do on a Curse site is probably going to be tracked and given to 3rd parties who can do anything they want with it.

    Sounds pretty standard for the internet.

    Quote from Kyte314
    Also, I think that parents shouldn't be so ridiculously overprotective in the first place (the world isn't all gumdrops and butterflies, and the longer your child believes that it is, the bigger hit it's going to be when they find out it's not, among a long list of other things), but that's a whole 'nother topic. And if you were to so overprotective, you probably wouldn't want them to be experienced to the internet or technology or anything that's occurring in the real world at all. Just saying.

    Most people I know agree with this. However, the Minecraft Forums are not a platform to fight social justice battles. Whether we disagree with parenting techniques or not, there's nothing we can do to change it. Sure, a stand could be taken and swearing could be allowed so parents have to harden up, but what would that do? It wouldn't change the parent's attitude, it would just mean they wouldn't let their child on these forums, depriving them of a resource and community they may desire in terms of minecraft.


    Quote from Kyte314
    Yes, because saying something on the internet is just like murder. But if we're going with exagerated real life examples:

    The speed limit is 55.

    You're going about 56.

    A cop pulls you over.

    He pulls his gun out and tells you to step out of the car.

    You get out and ask him what the problem is, and he shoots you in the legs.

    You go to trial and end up getting the death sentence.

    Hopefully you see my point.

    While I agree with you that the previous example of murder was over the top, your example is also over the top in terms of punishment.
    In this situation, if you went over the speeding limit and it was your first offense, you get an informal reminder. For subsequent offenses, you get written warnings that don't actually do anything. When you get to your fourth offense, and your third written warning, you get your driver's license revoked for three days. After your initial two written warnings, the faster you go over the speed limit (so the more danger you put others in), the longer your drivers license is revoked for.
    This system makes complete sense to me. The driver has been told repeatedly, both informally and formally, that going over the speed limit, even only by one mile/hour, is unacceptable by the police. It is not too hard to keep just under the speed limit, and not risk a warning. However if one were to find themselves incapable of not going over if they tried to keep just under the limit, then it would be best if they were to drive even slower, or not at all.

    Quote from Minecrafted2003

    Can you ask the forum admin what member title you want? Ex: Beacon of Light

    That should be the least of your concerns and is hardly important.

    posted a message on Can't send PM to anyone on forums but not temp-banned
    Do you know for a certain that people are sending you PMs?
    Have you checked to see if you are receiving PMs, but just not recieving notifications of that fact?
    You say you cannot send a PM to anyone, what are you trying to do to send a PM and where is it failing?

    Did I say it was about minecraft?

    Considering this is the minecraft forums, it isn't a very difficult (albeit incorrect) assumption.

    posted a message on Un-Lawful infraction given!
    Quote from WaterTipper


    I did. And no action was taken that I know of.

    The administrator should have at least replied with a "This infraction stands" or "I see where you are coming from" or some other well-phrased fancy language meaning either no or yes.
    If the infraction is recent enough to still be active but less recent then the last day or so, I'd suggest going to #minecraftforum and asking there.

    there hast to be a way some how. i just know it.

    Congratulations, you have the ability to "know" things without proof, evidence, or logical reason behind them beyond simple assertion.
    That's not how a theory works.

    Quote from Roadsguy

    What's worse is that AdBlock Plus doesn't remove them, and making a filter for them breaks the site layout. :(

    Oh no what a tragedy /sarcasm
    I doubt if anyone decides to change these to make them better for the end user, "making them removable via AdBlock Plus" would be on the list.
