Uhh is it really worth banning them for three hours? I mean is a few drunk posts around the Forum in the span of three hours really that bothersome to people? They'll sober up later and that'll be the end of it. It's not like it happens all that often anyway.

Also isn't this open to abuse? I mean people can easily say 'oh I was drunk/agitated when I posted that' in order to get some sort of leniency. Not everyone who is drunk peppers stuff with typos after all. And as for agitated/emotional.....well thats 99% of us 99% of the time

Something else to consider is the fact that the majority of us have a "come at me bro" attitude when it comes to getting infractions. I know I dont care at all about the warns and dont see them as a reason to keep me from breaking the rules

No one's gonna get temp-banned for a few drunk posts. It's only if it's completely disruptive, derailing threads, etc etc. Don't read too much into it. But yeah, this is not something I've seen all that often (if at all), so I doubt this would ever be used.

I doubt we'd be willing to let the same person get away with the same kind of behaviour repeatedly. The drunk tanking wouldn't go on their permanent record like an infraction would, but it would also be a sort of "watch yourself" warning. If a person made a habit of doing behaviour that would be worthy of drunk tanking, then that would be a serious issue that obviously wouldn't be solved by another drunk tanking.

We're not talking about "a few drunk posts". We're talking about seriously disruptive behaviour that happens to occur while a person appears to be in an intoxicated or otherwise compromised state.

There haven't been many instances in the forum's history where we would have needed to use this idea (although, as mentioned, we already did use it once on Mumble), and I doubt there will be many in the future. However, it would probably be helpful to have this codified in the rules so it doesn't surprise anyone.

Can we just bottom line here? Do people think it's better to hand out infractions or temp ban someone for like 3 hours? (keep in mind that a bunch of infractions in a small amount of time could result in a ban, this is only in extreme cases, and we could also do section bans rather than entire forum bans)

Poll it? Might be an easier resolution.

So hold up, your openly backing this as a proper rule however at the same time encourage people to join in on drinking and chatting with use of the drinking thread?

Why bother encouraging people to meet up on the tls irc channel and get blitzed if you don't think it may spill over to the forums?

Because, as a rule, it has not spilled over to the forum in a disruptive manner, because people have a much more immediate outlet for their drunken nonsense in the form of the IRC and skype chats.

I don't personally encourage getting drunk

But yeah, just because people get together off the board for socializing and drinking doesn't mean it's cool to come on the board while drunk and spam shit up. But I've never seen anything negative come from the drunk nights.

The whole idea of this was just in extreme cases of distrupting the board.

But let's just decide if we're for or against it, and move on.

I'm against it. It seems like making a rule just for the sake of having a rule take the place of what should be common sense to begin with. Too many rules brah. Just take some initiative.

Define 'extreme cases' I don't think i've seen anything that's extreme enough to warrant adding something like this to the rules. Unless you all think sami's drunken blitzes are extreme.

I just, common sense should simply apply depending on the situation.

We don't need some set criteria for dealing with drunk people. Just handle it at a case by case basis. If someone is just posting harmless dumb shit and not interfering with serious discussion we just ignore it.

No. Posting in the makes your day/ruins your day or w/e is not "extreme" imo. I'm referring to serious threads, feedback or news sections, and posting jibberish. I can't recall seeing it done either.

But if people prefer just doing the infractions thing, I'm cool with that.
