    Previously, site rules became slackened.

    Now site rules are being enforced. Please re-read the site rules.

    As of today warning, suspension, and ban will be given for rules violations.

    Out of courtesy, one extra warning will be given.

    Not to be salty, but you had said for me not to sell copies of the Burnout Revenge Beta even before the rule was put into place.
    At 7:50pm
    At 7:52pm
    How was I supposed to know that I couldn't do that? Seeing this place not only to share info, but to also buy/share items with others, you jumped right ontop of me, knowing that I was a new member. I am sorry I am not perfect, but I wasn't too happy about that.

    Actually, as a rule since June 2nd, 2016:

    BACKUP MEDIA:
    Must meet one of these criteria:

    • Game is a beta copy. It must be the original beta. Cannot be a copy of a copy.
    • Game is unreleased and not available on the Internet.
    • Game is a pressed silver.
    • Game is a reviewer's CD-R copy.
    • Game is a white label.
    • Game is on GD-R.
    https://assemblergames.com/threads/marketplace-rules-as-of-july-2016.4888/

    The way i see it, he warned you and then decided it was important to reinforce it's decision.

    By the way, as a new member you're still aren't allowed to sell anything:

    To sell on this forum you must obey these rules and have two things:
    • 50 posts.
    • Three months' membership (If you joined in March, you cannot sell until June).

    I do hope you understand these are mesures made to avoid problems.

    When there is a bunch of long list of rules spread around the site, it can be easy to overlook them/not know them instantly.

    Fair point, but is making the effort to read at least those rules that are pinned to the very top of those subforums you intend to use/frequent, or are related to things you intend to do, too much to ask?
    That being said, I hadn't even given a thought about wether those rules also apply to business conducted in private (via PMs), I always assumed they were meant for public things only.

    Yea, that was my problem here. I original said I would sell it through PM, I never was planning on putting it on the market. So that is why I didn't know about the rule against it. But now it seems I already upset TheGTAddict, and others, so I already had a bad start.

    Are there signatures on this site? I thought they were disabled, cause I never see them.

    Isn't publicly displaying reasons behind bans a bit much?

    I think it's a good thing, now you can't lie about why you was banned and anyone wondering will have an answer to the "why" question. And it isn't new. They'd usually post the ban and the reason in the same thread where you earned your ban.

    What does "disrupting the site" mean?

    Looking at the corresponding member's last few messages, one should tread very cautiously when they have concerns regarding decisions made. Not saying that I have any, obviously.

    Have you ever heard the story of old Yeller? I thought not, it's not a story the kind hearted would tell ye. It's about a boy who stumbled upon this stray dog. The boy cared for and love this dog dearly. But, this dog got into a fight with this wolf infected with rabies, Yeller gets bite... Eventually the family decided to take Yeller out of his own misery; which leaves the boy in a state of disarray. But, eventually he'll get over it... Like the story of old Yeller, this site needs to be taken down for it's own good. The admin team account has a stick up his own ass and it needs to be surgically removed. We will be upset, but these wounds will heal with time.

    please ban me

    thanks

    Nah, the site can survive, all it needs is a quality dickbutt section that would make it more attractive to the internet fellows.
    Also, there are inactive accounts created with a hotmail address; problem with users not receiving the two-step verification email is still not solved (who cares anyway...). I suggest to ban them and their clone account for disrupting the siteā„¢. Since they've artificially made the database and the memberlist bigger. HAIL VICTORY !

    I mean, since you have the incredible post count of 4 and all of less than 3 months worth of time with this site you certainly would be qualified to make that judgement call.

    How about instead of demonstrating attention-seeking "please ban me" behavior you just leave the site and enjoy the other wonders the internet has to offer? I heard a rumour that other gaming sites exist but don't quote me on that.
