    Okay, this isn't a how-to, because people would abuse it. But I wanted to let the mods and admin know that while keeping the same ip, any permanent ban is easily work-aroundable. I can even do it from my ipod! Nobody pm me or anything unless your a mod or the admin! I will not tell anyone except staff!

    well there is a permanent ban and an ip ban. only admins can ip ban. if your perm banned, you can always just make a new account.

    Luckily, there is a fairly active moderating staff, and we can ban people as soon as they make new accounts. If they make new accounts and we don't know about it, as long as the don't misbehave we could care less.

    Danls92 pretty much summed up what I was thinking, if the person comes back and doesn't act up, why would anyone care? I mean sure...The person got away with doing something that's worth a ban, but oh well.

    yeah there is any easy work around that can probably pretty easily get around an ip ban also. I dunno if its what you're thinking of though.
