A note on bans, appeals, and circumvention

Post by Jirato » Thu Aug 23, 2018 6:59 pm

CLOK is a fairly old MUD at this point. Over its many years of operating, we've come across a few instances where individuals have been banned from the MUD. It's never something we do lightly. I'd like as many people to enjoy CLOK as possible. I'm rather glad that in all the years CLOK has been running, there's actually not that many instances of bans, but it does unfortunately happen every now and then.

If you find yourself in a situation where you've been banned from CLOK and feel a desire to play again, we'd be glad to reconsider your situation. A well written email to support at clokmud dot com will get the ball rolling, and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised with the results. However, the worst possible thing you can do is try to circumvent your ban, using various means to mask your identity and continue playing CLOK after you've been asked not to. Please, don't do this. Seriously, just send us an email after there's been some time for things to settle, and we'll give it consideration.

Several bans have recently been repealed as I was going through the login code cleaning some things up.

I don't really expect any of these previously banned players to log in and start playing again, but on the off chance that they do (and read this), please be mindful of the following:
1) Don't troll - if you come back just to troll and/or bash CLOK, you'll go back on the ban list.
2) Think carefully about how your message will be received before posting to the BBS/chat/discord.
3) If you log in the "locked box", feel free to send a REQUEST to talk about it.

Any discussion about getting unbanned or out of the "locked box" should be handled through the REQUEST command or emailing our support address ONLY. Not through BBS private messages, discord private messages, or asking your friend to talk to me for you.
