A public and/or private warning may be issued
The post(s)/thread(s) may be closed or removed
A suspension may be placed on the account ranging from a day to a year
A permanent ban may be placed on the account
Above provides the typical course of action from first offense to multiple offenses. However, action taken may be more lenient or severe depending on the seriousness of the violation and user history.
What is a suspension or ban? A suspension is a temporary restriction from the public areas of Zero Session. A ban is a permanent restriction from the public areas of Zero Session. This does not prevent access to one's games or viewership of the Zero Session site.
A suspended or banned user will be prohibited from participating in the following activities for the duration of the suspension or ban:
Post a new thread or reply to any existing threads on the public forums
List a new game
Send private messages
Any attempt to circumvent a ban by posting on another account or having an external party post on one's behalf, will result in all involved being subject to a suspension or ban.
