Site rules are flawed.
 | 
Japan Onee_chan 
Some admin banned me for 10 days or something. I messaged Jonathan E and he says I got banned for "pointless and useless ama thread". Yet something as useless as this doesn't get removed? hltv.org/forums/threads/2169648/bored-at.. This obviously proves that what is considered "useless and pointless" is HIGHLY subjective to different humans. Thus this site rule is extremely flawed since you don't specify what is considered "useless". Why not write in the rules that AMAs are not allowed? You can also get banned for "offensive content" even though this is not stated in the rules. Why have such unclear and broad rules? It's funny how you admins literally make up non existent rules on the go. Of course this is your every right to do so since it's your website. But there is literally no point in you trying to act professional when you obviously can't.

My friend got 10 banned for something he said like 2 years ago. That would not be a problem, but the thing is he was already banned for that same thing he said. So, he was banned by the time he broke the rule. Then 2 years later he gets 10 years banned for the very same reason. When he asked Jonathan E. about this absurd, his answer was "that post is against the rules". These admins makes no sense. This site is brainless. BAN me if you want. I dont care anymore. You ruined my life.

It's funny how he tries to act professionally but fails miserably. Banning someone for breaking a rule that does not exist is as unprofessional as it gets.
2019-10-22 14:42
Yes. I even told him I used to admire him. I thought he was a bastion of western righteousness. Incorruptible. But no. He is just a guy who bans whoever he is told to ban, by whatever reason he feels like.

2019-10-22 14:44
+1, mohamed. Some russian admin bans people for things like this and Jonathan knows its wrong but he can do nothing about it. Sad times for hltv.
2019-10-22 18:14
Any particular example?
2019-10-22 18:22
"nazi islamists lol expected from turks" [3rd worlders and nationalism] "3rd world shitholes most nationalistic Brazilians, Turks, Americans, Indians... LUL" "Brazil should be nuked instead" "BR CANCER" thread "imagine living in a 3rd world favela country and still talking LUL" "and poland is somewhere in the bathroom cleaning the black guy's toilet" And also making fun of terror attacks. Am I wrong here?
2019-10-22 18:30
I dont know the context from his comments but he created a thread saying mods should ban bait threads i commented "dimitrii visited your profile, dont reply to me if you are banned" or something and he wrote me a PM 2 minutes later with the message i showed you.
2019-10-22 18:34
Now you have the context. Any other examples of me banning for "things like this"?
2019-10-22 18:36
Yeah i have seen a lot of people complaining about your bans this week but i obviously dont bookmark everything and most threads are deleted within an hour anyway maybe you should open a big thread where people can publicly complain about their bans, this would solve a lot of problems
2019-10-22 18:39
I have seen a lot of people complaining about me, too, but I have never seen any actions from my side that make their complaints sensible. Every time someone says that they got banned for no reason, it's either an empty new account or an account full of actual unpleasant trolling and offenses. Now I see your complaint and you have nothing to back it up. So maybe you're the one who's doing something wrong now? But I like this idea, had something similar in my head.
2019-10-22 18:44
Found the thread from today hltv.org/forums/threads/2169644/i-defeat.. I will bookmark threads like this from now on
2019-10-22 18:46
So what? A ban by mistake that I accepted? What a bad, vicious mod that accepts mistakes that everybody makes! And try to scroll the thread for mod's responses the next time you make a judgement. I'm not interested in the list of bookmarked threads where I responded
2019-10-23 10:14
Jonathan E once said I was banned for saying "fuck". Is that reasonable?
2019-10-22 21:18
I don't see anything related to ban history. And as it also was Jonathan E., I can't tell anything about it, but it's definitely not a reason to ban in general case.
2019-10-22 21:25
Well, I was banned for saying "fuck the mongolz" to a guy who's name was dont_bully_mongolz or something. THE TEAM, not the country, it was his flair. It was just a joke at the end of a bigger comment I made to the guy. But I was banned. Originally I thought he thought I was being racist and talking about the country, but he told me that I was banned for using the word fuck. I'm not sure if that's the actual truth or if he just made a mistake that he didn't want to admit.
2019-10-22 21:49
Jonathon literally cherry picks bans and has banned me twice for the copy and pasting that literally everyone does. I haven’t had any other issues with any other mods than Jonathan. If the rules are going to be enforced than everyone who breaks them should be banned.

2019-10-22 15:01
Well that cant really be the users fault then. How can a new user ever know that? If they read the rules, they have no idea that there have been added serval other rules to that list.

2019-10-22 18:17
AMAs are not against the rules as long as its not pointless. think about it, if you post an AMA saying "extremely bored AMA" ( onee_chan did this ) then there is someone who posts an AMA saying "lawyer for my countrys president AMA" if the AMA that isn't useless ( 2nd option ) and stays within the rules ( no large amount of baiting or offensive shit ( this leads to thread deletion instead of going thru the comments and deleting them one by one ) ) and the replies from the AMA holder are not against the rules and not stupid, it can stay on the website. pointless AMA classifies as useless thread.

That should be stated in this sites rules page. Not in a thread from 2016.

There are A LOT of "pointless" threads that don't get removed. Did you look at that thread I linked? It's literally an AMA without the word AMA and it is useless/pointless.
2019-10-22 15:21
report it? contact an admin? you can do something about it. and u surely could have dm'd about the site rules instead of making a thread. you will most likely get a better response there

2019-10-22 20:39
The point he's trying to make (I assume) is every AMA you create is a thread. Therefore every pointless AMA can be ruled under the "Pointless thread" rule. So yes, pointless AMAs is in the rule already. Edit: Damnit, I replied to the wrong user.
2019-10-22 15:26
its ok and yes that is exactly what i said but i think the issue is explained in #30 him posting a useless AMA would not get him banned because there is a lot more useless threads during the time he posts it. these threads do not issue any bans to the users. but then again he could just report the threads and probably even message jonathan e. about them.

im gonna let u in on a secret: they dont have ppl watching 24/7 for every single thread that could violate some fringe hidden rule. Thats why a lot of stupid threads (which make up 85% of hltv) dont get banned. Its just if u are unlucky that Jonathan E is awake
2019-10-22 15:29
i've seen so many threads regarding admins for the past couple of days it seems like they just ban whoever they feel like like, broke the rules or not. if they dont like a specific topic or comment, they just hit the banhammer for that person and it makes no sense i'd much rather read pointless AMA's than ''r8 my indian wife for whom i selled my left kidney'' or ''r8 this ig model'' or basically anything releated to some pointless r8 bs. My 8 year old sister who doesnt understand english would do a better job at moderating this place. in fact, almost everyone could do a better job. If i get banned for stating my own opinion on the matter, it just proves my point. It was a nice ride my fellow HLTV users.

This is not an opinion, this is a childish attempt to troll somebody. You're not on 4chan, in case you forgot about this, you're on the forum about CS:GO. And you would be banned for this because I want to believe that there's a lot of people who have come here for interesting discussions, not baits. But yet this is just a great example of me doing something wrong. Asked for anything particular that is not fine in particular and got this - beautiful! I don't even have to prove anything now, you've proved that you have nothing to back your accusation because you indeed get your bans for a reason.

Im not OP and I was making a joke. Im very aware of what this place is, eve though i use the off-topic forums alotmore. But Im having alot of serious discussion on this site. People make jokes and trol or bait that times, but that doesnt men its the only thing I do. A quick check of my comments and thread would have amde clear, that Im not only trolling and baiting. I have no problem with you or other admins btw, as I stated inanother comment, the few times I received short time bans, I can understand I did deserve them and I try to not do it again in the future. In case that got lost: I was merely making a joke to emphasize, that I agree, that admins mostly do a good job and that threads like these are annoying.
2019-10-22 19:52
Good to hear that, but it sounded really in the style of other claims, so... :D But such jokes most likely wouldn't work out greatly in other situations, keep this in mind.

While I believe people that get banned on HLTV.org are usually asking for it, I reckon the rules could use some refactoring; they're REALLY vague, which is by no means good! I believe more detailed rules would be nothing but beneficial for the site. Expand on some points and add a couple new ones.

It is a very silly suggestion that we approve every single piece of content that is not deleted, don't you think? And don't you think the moderators could have missed that thread too? I thought this was obvious, but you have managed to make massive conclusions based on your wrong thought that the thread you mentioned was fine and approved by us.

You do realize that atleast 50% of the posts on this website are troll/bait/useless posts? That's why this website is great! I don't understand why you admins don't like this. The baiting/trolling is what makes this a fun forum to use.
2019-10-22 20:10
So what? Should we embrace it? Of course, there's always a room for improvement, and I even know what could be done better in terms of our work, but this situation won't be tolerated. I don't see a single reason why everything on the site should be great except for the "sidebar of shame". And you have to understand it, too.

If "I peed AMA" and similar pointless topics should be present on the main page of the site (and they remain there for quite a while) that is used by the whole community of CS:GO, then you should just quit using it. Fun is allowed, but embarrassing things are not. And I still don't even know what was the ban reason in your case, because you haven't sent me your account yet :)

Welcome to internet. Pointless is relative, and so it's "offensive". Something could be offensive to a mod and not being offensive to another, and lets not talk about ban days (or years), I would love hear why an infraction gets 10 days and a much much worse infraction gets the same amount of days

It's not. You should have noticed that any comment brings up the whole topic upwards in the forum section. If you think that it's okay to keep another thread with a racist joke on the main page of HLTV, you're wrong. We won't tolerate this. Not to say that endorsement of an idea/statement is the way of spreading it.

disagreeing with a statement that you dont like for your front page, by replaying to it, would also shoot the topic on top. unlucky i guess cya in 10. also racist jokes are not racist just like black humor is not black - its all comedy. censoring jokes just because they might offend some special individual following blindly some twisted ideology is not cool. why does hltv has to loose its spirit and become reddit. hltv forum is full of stupid but funny shit, and not boring walls of text like this one, why not keep it that way

Negative reaction to negative content is not something we can punish. If we had instruments to easily let people know that this is not okay to do this, we would. But as of now, we have what we have. And if you think that the monkey threads and similar can be considered as comedy, you have the view of comedy that is not accepted on HLTV. Also, I will lie if I said that I don't laugh at some things that are posted here, but the humor has to be limited within the borders of decency. Again, it's a website about CS:GO, and we let people have conversations on off-topic matters, but we won't tolerate misbehavior, offenses, and harassment.

False, it was "Frieberg fat trash" and it was a one-day ban.

+1, the rules are broken. One person can get a 10 y/o ban for saying the n word without having any bans in the past and the others may only get their message deleted without any consequences...

If it’s too much to ask, could I get my ban history PM’d to me? I’m genuinely curious of the comments that get me banned. I swear that sometimes it is random, innocuous stuff... although I know there were legitimate reasons for around half of them.

I agree that rules are a bit broken, tbh

"Flawed" is a better way of describing the rules.

I was 3days banned for "spamming" when i posted just one freaking comment. This is ridiculous. Meanwhile there were so many same comments posted (and they're still up) and they're not deleted at all.
