I don't see a reason to offer this luxury to people who get banned when you take into consideration that they are people who have hacked, spammed, harassed other players, or violated any of the server rules (even though I don't agree with all of them). They wouldn't have to worry about when their ban is going to be lifted or even banned to begin with if they grew out of their 12 year old mindset and acted like the actual adults they never became. In fact, I think it does them a favor to get away from this game without a deadline for when they can come back. Perhaps they will discover something more valuable to do with their time.
Really, though, I don't see myself routinely updating ban start and end dates nor the admins keeping me updated about them. This is something that I know for a fact would not get updated. Any type of automation on the calendar can be done but it really depends on what you're willing to go through to have it. Way too much work for a feature we could do without.
If you cant do something right, why do you want to do it? I can certainly do everything i just said 2 post ago and alone.
This is not because peoples get ban they dont have the right to have the good justice.
If you think because someone get ban we have to forget him so you will be one of these guy who contribute to kill this game even if you made a little calendar.
You want to made a calendar for us, it's ok, cool, but dont try to make your own rules, people who get ban have the right to get ban rightly, this calendar is a way to make banning official with rules for the entire community.
I appreciated the fact you want to help us, but i dont appreciated your bullshiting when your nobody yet.
Get your real account and maybe your gonna have the right to take important decision like this.
You were given the option to do this calendar on your own yet you ignored it and somehow now claim that you are capable of doing everything that you've listed here. It's like walking through your house and you keep bumping into a chair each time you walk by it. You complain about it each time. You may even put the chair itself at fault. Yet, you won't move it over a little or somewhere else to avoid the grievance. We need to shift our focus to a better way of doing something rather than complaining and accomplishing nothing. You're thinking too big and I've seen projects such as this and websites fail due to this type of thinking.
Instead of focusing your energy on becoming hostile with everyone who disagrees with you, we can instead brainstorm on another way to solve this issue. For instance, League of Legends has a tribunal system where players are reported for breaking rules and players are able to review the case and decide whether or not to punish that player for their actions. The same could be done here by just adding a board where players can post a poll, screenshot, and reason for wanting the ban. The community then votes on it with a deadline and when the deadline is up, the admin bans (or doesn't ban) them for x amount days. There can also be a guideline set up for the amount of time a player gets banned depending on the offense. This solves the problem of having better justice administered and will allow banned players to be aware of the amount of time they have been banned for. By doing this, we've even eliminated the need for server rules altogether and promoted more community involvement. I think enough of us on here possess enough common sense to know what we want and don't want happening on this server.
As for me being nobody, I'm actually a long time veteran of this game and have been playing since 1999. I've devoted my time to helping out in tournaments over the years and have never received a ban on this server. I've promoted this server through YouTube on my own time as well. The only reason you don't know me is due to the fact that I couldn't even get my account approved on the old forums.
So, in your own way here, are you offering to keep up with the ban start and end dates on the calendar? I could give you access to posting on the calender in order to do this but I prefer the above idea I stated in the second paragraph. I am willing to work with you if you'd like to become involved with anything I'm working on as long as you can be civil.
