Getting a Forum Ban Question

I have 1 Strike and 2 warnings since the New Crew took over.

Does this reflect on my Game?

Are they Connected?

If I get a Perm Forum Ban will the game be affected? {Game Banned as well?}

To my knowledge, it only affects your ability to post in the forums.

If you get 5 strikes against you, you'll be permaban from posting on the forums, but gameplay isn't affected.

Lotta bans and threads closed since the new crew took over. 

You can pretty much get a strike for anything they want. TOS is vague for that reason. 

TBH, I'll be surprised if they don't kill this thread.

Forum and game punishments are 100% separated, the one does not influence the other.

Nothing at all wrong with this thread, guy just wants to know if he'll lose his investment in the game if he gets 5 strikes in the forums.

Why? He's not challenging moderator decisions here, he's asking an honest question about the rules.

Totally agree, but it doesn't matter. 

They usually kill any threads about this subject in particular.

I even made a point in this thread about it.

Most often I hear that type of statement it comes across more like, "I like being <rude, a jerk, trollish, etc> which I find hilarious but someone else disliked it."

YMMV, though, as I'm not sure what specifics you are referring to.

Don't post the reason!

Unless something has changed, it says in the TOS that you aren't supposed to post that.

I'm serious Peeps, anything they want.

The more typical "bone dry" British sarcasm or deadpan often doesn't come through well in a text-only medium too.

I've gotten into problems in various places where the tone (which is what is often critical to determine when you're being sarcastic/deadpan instead of serious) in my head didn't translate to the written world, and people got seriously offended.

Text misses many of the audible and body language cues we depend on for humor, as well as the problems with an interrupted conversational style. Don't presume that it's just someone being a jerk; or, more appropos, it's often not the WRITER who is the jerk in this scenario, it's the READER who is overreacting to missing things they should have picked up on.

I'm not fighting against any of this, I'm just warning to try to help.

It doesn't make sense to me either, but I don't make the rules here.

Nah, fortunately strikes and warnings on this awful forum are completely separate from your in-game account.

It seems like any time I hover over a mods name, it says they're using personal messenger and I always assume it's to warn someone lol.

Or the writer didn't make themselves clear. It's the writer's responsibility to communicate clearly. I've lost count of how many interactions where literally every reader is saying 'no, you're being a jerk' but the writer insists EVERYONE is reading it wrong.

It's good that they are separate because you're likely to get a strike if you say anything that sounds even remotely critical in the forums.  This is not the place to have an open and honest discussion about the state of the game or the player base.  (and even good-spirited humor is often quashed too)

If you want to have more freedom, switch over to Reddit. They aren't as anal about anything and everything.

Idk if anyone has noticed, but WG posts Q&As/communicates more there than here. 

The reason is Reddit has more "potential" new players they can get to play the game. There's more coverage there than here. If you post here, they already have you.

Some people are extra sensitive. Ask a mod a reasonable question that they happen to not like or take the wrong way for whatever reason is one way.  Spelling p00p in a way that a mod doesn't like is another way.

Asking a question about chat bans/strikes. Note: not criticizing or saying WG was wrong. Merely asking a question.
