Forums: Index > Watercooler > Formal request to permanently ban "LovelyChrys"

I formally request that the Administrators take a formal vote to permanently ban User:LovelyChrys. This user has consistently shown bad behavior, consistently flaunted image regulations. Further, she's repeatedly harassed Admins Gonzalo84, QueenBuffy, and Opark77. These antics aren't worth putting up with. Do any of you honestly believe that more would be gained by constantly having to use damage control on this user's bizarre behavior? LovelyChrys is not making this a stable environment for the rest of us. LovelyChrys' temper in the chatroom has already resulted in one temporary ban last week but I see no signs of improving behavior. --The Dragon Demands 02:49, June 1, 2012 (UTC)

I'd like to know what happened now. --Gonzalo84 05:45, June 1, 2012 (UTC)
LovelyChrys has broken our image policy in the past but is now one of the better editors here at following it after I spent some time teaching her how. That is a clear sign of improving editing. We have never permanently banned a user here. We respond to unacceptable editing behavior with a series of blocks. A first offence will usually receive a warning unless it is deemed significantly bad and then it will receive a block. We tend to progress from 24 hours, to 1 week, to 1 month, to 1 year for repeated offences for edits in good faith. For vandalism or spam we block for 1 year. There are several areas of the site where LovelyChrys has had multiple warnings. I believe they are facing a 1 month block for further image policy violations and a 1 year block for continued harassment about blocks on other wikis. They will have to actually violate a guideline or policy with an edit for those blocks to be instituted. Can you cite an example of a recent edit that you think constitutes an offence worth blocking backed up by a warning on the users talkpage? If not then we will not institute a block simply because it has been requested.--Opark 77 06:34, June 1, 2012 (UTC)
LovelyChrys has been blocked for 3 months from June 1 for repeated incivility. I hope that when she returns her editing behavior will have improved.--Opark 77 16:39, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
I'll support this decision. If they step out of line by a millimetre when they return, we should ban them permanently. It may be helpful to note to the person that we are being extremely lenient with them by not banning them outright from the start.--Werthead 19:52, June 4, 2012 (UTC)
Permanently. I've dealt with her/him on True Blood Wiki. The Wikia Staff are aware she is a "Trouble User". Nothing good comes from her bizarre behavior. She has snapped at me. Undermined me. I'm done with her. --QueenBuffy35 Crown New Red 17:24, June 2, 2012 (UTC)
