Summary 0000004: Make ban descriptions a little "nicer".
Revision 2015-09-05 17:45 by cobalt
Description I remember this discussion on Doomworld:

http://www.doomworld.com/vb/doomworld-news/51717-skulltag-98-3rd-mix/ [^]

Someone was unfairly caught in a range ban and they felt alienated by the ban messages. I think that there are a few things here that could be done better:

1. For local bans, when the user caught in an IP range connects to the server, add a hard-coded message after the ban message that says something to the effect of:

"Your IP (<ip address>) has been banned from this server. If you feel this is in error, please contact <admin email address>."

2. For master bans, use this message:

"Your IP (<ip address>) has been banned from Skulltag. If you feel this is in error, please contact <url to contact form or email address>."

3. For forum bans, remove profanity from the existing bans, and add a link to a contact form or email address, similar to 2.

Just a small thing or two that might go a little way in improving our image.
