hello, while discussing with a fellow forumer I realized that there is no actual clarification about evading a forum ban.

for those who don't know, evading a forum ban can be done by purchasing membership on a new account and continuing to post on the forums after your original account was banned.

since getting banned in the first place is such an unlikely thing to happen with the new, too relaxed forum rules, I wanted to ask if evading a ban is against the rules? to me it seems pretty pointless to allow someone to evade a ban on a new account. it takes far too many hoops to jump through in order to get a user banned in the first place, it seems very messed up to me to let them just post on a new account because they paid you more.

please clarify, preferably a jagex moderator.

^Ppl do get removed though, its just that as long as they adhere to the rules, they can use another acc.


well of course u think this, but i think that is not true. that sounds like evading a ban to me.


Proof that it isnt true?


well someone was banned and began posting on an alt, and a jmod banned the alt. so I consider this example as proof.


Maybe due to the fact the alt wasnt abiding by the rules.

It doesnt disprove the fact that if they are they can post.

I think ban evasion should be against rules if it is not already, otherwise bans are useless.


Yet it isnt an "evasion" if the alt is following the rules.

You and many others seem to think that once a person gets banned they shouldnt be allowed to post at all.

Which makes no sense.

the purpose of a ban is to limit a person from using the forums, so using another acc to avoid serving the ban sounds like it is breaking the rules to me


Yet you not avoiding anything as long as you follow the rules.
