A MVP wants game-time ban for forum bans

A blue needs to seriously see what this MVP is putting out and wanting done. Apparently A MVP is now trying to get Blizzard to make a major forum change to all of Blizzard Forums. The MVP is calling for a all across the board ban. Forum Bans in the eyes of the MVP now = game-time Ban. This MVP wants it across all Blizzard forums AND GAMES. This effects all wow players to if this MVP has his way.

Ugh, I can see where this is heading and I don't want to get into another pseudo-lawyer discussion. =/

Long story short, I wish this would happen across all Blizzard games.

Blizzard wants to curb trolling right? That's the whole reason behind the horrible RealID on the forums stuff right?

Equate Forum Bans to Game Bans.

Problem solved.

If this MVP has his way this could effect ALL OF you not just Diablo it is a all across blizzard game meaning wow and starcraft to.

He's on the D3 forums, no one cares about that game.

If this gets implemented, I'll boil my boots, and eat them like soup.

Also, that will be the day I close my battle.net account and never return.

Barring the fact that you likely could have just responded to counter him in the thread he posted on rather than make a call-out thread, if you have concerns about an MVP poster you can direct it to the MVP email address as well:

MVPs@Blizzard.com

Additionally I'd like to point out that us being MVPs holds no sway in how Blizzard makes their decisions so you should be judging it rather as another player making the suggestion rather than any sort of "this will happen or Blizzard will consider it because he is an MVP" type deal. So there is no "If he has his way." It's moreso him expressing his opinion on the public forums.

He's on D3 forums, no one reads those or even cares.

Firstly: lol, awesome idea.

Secondly: you seem a bit concerned.

Thirdly: lol, awesome idea.

He brings up a good point to be honest. But just because a MVP says something doesn't mean it will come to pass. They are no more special than me or you and are no way affiliated with Blizzard. They have green text because they contribute on a regular basis to the community on the forums. That doesn't mean they can't speak their opinion.

Blizzard needs to put out a statement that this is not being implanted in anyways possible. This effects all forums. This isn't a call out of a MVP, but a call out of a vital game change that would effect wow players as well as Starcraft players to. This is a all across the board change that would effect ALL OF BLIZZARD GAMES.


You're starting a fire that doesn't really need to be started, though. There's no Blizzard official endorsement of this, they haven't made any mention of it so there is no vital game change unless Blizzard announces it themselves.

ETA: And they don't need to make an announcement saying they won't do it because they never said they'd do it in the first place.

MVP's are just regular people. they have no sway in what Blizzard does or does not do.

He also claims to be in talk with blizzard employees on the forum. He has passed info to Developers. The guy is calling for something from the diablo3 forums that will effect all blizzard games.


He sounds like a liar and an idiot. If it's something they want to implement they would probably lose a lot of people. Banning players so easily isn't something they are going to start doing just to curb trolling on the forums.

I think this is a great idea and Blizz needs to implement it immediately.

Thanks, OP, for bringing this to our attention.

Meh. That MVP sounds like an idiot. Green text doesn't make you 100% right, but anyways, pretty lame if this were to be added. Id be permabanned in a heartbeat. And I Imagine others would be too, causing blizzard to lose their money, and blizzard LOVES THEIR MONEY!
