I don't mean to bug people here but, when I was just browsing around the website and the forum to see if there where any interesting topics. I've clicked on the "Cartoons are bad for kids" topic made by steam and I have seen Steam have a Restricted rank. Raybob has this also. I'm kind of puzzled from this because there is no information about restricted members. Can anyone explain what the heck is going on?

I can. We are banned from setting statuses and reporting posts, we have a 30 posts to post on a daily basis.It's the same for me, even without these restrictions.

I assume you get this group only if you hit a certain boundary. So looking at your rep in your profile, it says "Bad". I think the only way you can get this is if you give a Posted Image to a certain post, that will then effect the poster.

But don't trust me on this. Husky, I suggest you contact the admins since they know more than I do.

It's one of Gerard's fun ideas. Basically for people who go around the forums being a massive dickhead, but don't need to be banned. Nothing to do with rep.

We are also banned from posting pics, using the edit button, having an avatar, and having a signature.

Wow that sucks. I'm glad I don't act like a dickhead on the forums, I'd be well upset if I had all those privileges taken away!

Doesn't mean I'm leaving here though.

Despite all the assholes and lack of activity (getting better lately though) the forum layout and topics are way better.

Couldn't this post be considered a dickhead post? :P

And will someone PLEASE explain to me why I cannot raise and lower post rep.... It's confusing me.

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

You just did (I can see it).

If you can't, that sucks bit time. Obviously like Mr. Phillips said, being a Dickhead = Less Privileges. I Like the new idea, hopefully it will become more effective than banning members straight away.

Why are you whining? You acted like that, you deserved that (Ray & Steam). BTW, this topic is fucking lulz. :P
And yah go to GTAF, maybe they'll like you there or you may be banned faster.

That's exactly the idea. If this was three years ago, Steam and Raybob would have been banned without a second thought. This is designed to show them that they can either improve or leave - it's their choice. If things don't improve, then the ban option will be used.

I hate that our names are crossed-over with a red color.Just put a color for the name and a legend at the bottom so people would know what color indicates a thing.

And not to mention the small first letter.
