Default 2 questions.

1:What is the forum locked symbol forum? Why would you lock a forum?
2:If someone gets banned on one computer does it affect the registered users on that computer and can you create a new one?

1. Mods block forums for any reason they don't want ayone to post in them.
2. i think it is the IP address of that computer so any users on that computer would be blocked (im just geussing on this one)

Default Re: 2 questions.

1. Locking a topic is used if we don't want people to post any replies for whatever reason. The forum rules, for instance, is locked because people replying to it wouldn't add to anything (it's not much of a conversation), it would just be a distraction. Another reason is if there's flaming going on or you just know there won't be a good reaction to something...lock it up! I've used it very infrequently.

2. It depends on if the the username is banned or if the IP address is banned, the latter case resulting in no one from a given computer being able to register.

It should be pointed out that i you are on a wireless network at home or at a school, all computers on that wireless connection (assuming your school uses NAT or a proxy server) have the same IP address as far as viz is concerned. The ROUTER get's banned and all computers connecting through that router are banned.

What this means to you:

If you live in a house with a router sharing internet to many computers in the house and the mods ban someone, the whole house is banned.

If you are at a college that uses NAT or a proxy server to filter web traffic and you get banned, the whole school will end up banned.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the locks are put in place by the Mods so they can limit these things. Too many forums and topics would be far too confusing, so they've set the limit to make the whole system easier to navigate through everything.

I have a question for the mods, if it is ok to ask.

What would happen to the other users who follow the rules if one user who uses the same computer with the same ip address get's banned?

For an example, let's say there are two people who use the same computer, person A is good, he follows the rules, and then person B happens to break the rules a lot. Then Person B get's banned. What would happen to person A's account? Would his account get banned too?

They answered this question and its No person B would get banned while person A doesnt have to worry one bit.

Incorrect. They could ban by IP address which would ban BOTH.

They COULD ban the persons username or email address, but then person B could just make a new one.

In all likeliness, they would ban the IP banning both unless they knew there were 2 users sharing the account. If they knew, then they would probably ban the offending username, but if person B made a new account and then caused trouble, then both would likely get banned in the end.

To sum it up: Depending on how they chose to handle it, both coud get banned. If person B continues to be a problem by making a new account, then the mods would have no other solution but to ban both.

Basically, it depends on the situation, but you COULD get banned for someone else's behavior.

Nothing personal, I swear.

I correct any wrong answer I see.

The core of why you are saying is correct, but the way n which it was said was misleading.

Please continue to help people though, I in no way want to discourage you.

I still don't completely get it. I thought banning the ip address only prevents someone from making a new account. Can't Person A just post some where else like at the library or at school or something like that? Does person A have to lose his account over some one elses actions?

If Person A knows person B is bad poster, should he stop logging on that same computer? Person A would pretty much be powerless to stop Person B from breaking any rules.

If your IP is banned, you can't login, post, and you might not even be able to view the forums.

What you're describing is a complicated situation. If someone gets banned, comes back with another account and starts more trouble, we'd want to ban their IP address, which would prevent them from logging in to the forums whatsoever, as tomarnk said.

However, you run into problems if, as you say, Person A uses the same computer, or if the IP that's getting banned as it a library or school, which would prevent everyone else in those places to login too. We've already run in to problems like that. Ultimately, we don't want Person A to lose his/her account over Person B's actions.
