THIS THREAD IS FOR REQUESTS ONLY. ALL OTHER POSTS WILL BE DELETED.
Using this thread for reasons other than requesting a ban could result in an infraction after one warning.
What is this thread for?
You can use this thread to request a ban. A ban will keep you from interacting with the community here. This is the only area on the website where a ban can be requested- so no making threads, blogs, or posts on other threads will earn you a ban*. When requesting a ban please show full consent that it is your will, define the duration (up to 2 weeks), and you may include other information. Other than that you are free to include whatever you'd like. I would recommend creating a blog to let people know you'll be gone since this thread is solely for requests.
*If you want to request a ban in private for whatever reason, you can Private Message a super moderator
*Bans longer than 2 weeks can be requested from smods, if you have a valid reason
Can I shorten my original requested ban?
Yes! We'd love to have you back. Simply make a thread in Ask a Mod (only forum that appears to banned people) to make that request. You can renew your ban for up to 2 weeks.
Why would I request a ban?
Bans are useful when you have more important things to concentrate on than JV. If you use this website to procrastinate (haven't we all) a ban can be useful. If you are requesting a ban for a reason other than helping yourself it may be undone or turned to an actual ban.
Will people know I requested a ban?
Yes they will. Even if you didn't create a blog there are symbols that differentiate a punitive ban from a requested ban.
