I saw a blue post responding to the idea of creating a small island or prison for the WoW accounts that get banned and permabanned.
As a silly expansion on that idea how about:
- A set of stockades in front of major cities where the toons are captive for their non-permanent bans. We can go there and throw fruit, let our pets relieve themselves on them, and generally celebrate these people as being shamed.
- A wall or book of the unhonorable which lists the characters on that realm who broke the terms of service so badly they are banned permanently. An example that their behaviour is not tolerated.
- Or if the folks are still playing but banned for a time, then give them a specific realm of shame where they can login but they cannot login anywhere else. These characters are “stuck” at level 1 and cannot chat or communicate outside that realm. Kind of like putting all the convicts on the same boat and shipping them to Australia.
- Perhaps an in-game debuff that marks all character when they are unbanned for a while…”disgraced”.
I know that reads like rewarding the negative behaviour, so not the best. Just a thought.
