A quick announcement so that folks be clear on an important issue. As folks should already know (and common sense dictate anyhow) once a member has been banned, this is not an invitation for them to go ahead and create a new account under a new username. Some individuals however don't seem to get that point, and will repeatedly attempt to come back under new aliases. It often isn't too hard to spot the offender though, and for an admin to then ban them. However, it results in an annoying cycle of ban, re-register, ban again, and so on, much to our chagrin and to the detriment of the forum's quality (after all, there's a reason they were banned in the first place.)

As such, the rules have been amended to clarify what will happen to repeat offenders of banned account (originally left it a bit vague with something like will be banned immediately with further punishment or something). Now it reads:

If a member is issued with a suspension or ban, they are not allowed to register a new account to post whilst restrictions are in place. Suspensions and bans are given for a reason, and a member is expected to respect and abide by the decisions made by the Moderating team. If a member registers another account whilst suspended/banned, that account will be banned immediately, and posts from the new account deleted as well as the account itself.

So, if someone gets banned, and they come back posting again, they should realize that all the hard work they're doing in ruining our forum will get erased once they are caught, in sha Allah. The point of this and other policies is not for the admins and mods to act like autocrats, but to try to improve the overall quality and experience of the site for all of us (non-banned) members.
