    People actually do "funny" reports?

    They seemed to have missed the one with using Paypal to charge NX and Nexon refunding the money then perma banning you.

    IF ONLY.

    that said, some of these are downright insane.

    what is too much hack information?

    i can get banned for sharing my name too many times/linking to my webpage?

    as if, people have blocked bosses for ages with mules and whatnot, it never traces back to the guild doing it -sigh-

  6. Default Re: Ban Definitions


    Fair enough.

    I really had no idea every time I said my name to a new buddy or in a new guild I was at risk of being banned. Some of these are kind of silly. "Warned and educated," I can see meaning private information but a first name, which might even just be an online alias? Come on.

  7. Default Re: Ban Definitions


    Ouch... Looks like I have some mules to rename.

    whoops, missed quoting that one. your mules can't have gibberish names, whelp. now, being devil's advocate, they might have done this just to say to meso farmers "nope, crap name, +28 days on top of your botting ban

    botting gets you banned for less time than having a gibberish name though ._.

  9. Default Re: Ban Definitions


    Hell, they even have this in their ToS:
    Also:

    Let's see they ban me 28 days for this.

  10. Default Re: Ban Definitions


    There are so many rules on that list that are repeatedly broken by high profile players in Khaini, with nothing more than slaps on the wrist. Its pathetic.

  11. Default Re: Ban Definitions


    So you can get banned for having King/Queen/Major in your name? What the pineapple is wrong with you Nexon?

    Default Re: Ban Definitions


    IIRC, they always had that rule but they never really do anything about it. They only do something about it if it's actually offensive.

  15. Default Re: Ban Definitions


    Does this mean I have to change the look of my Xenon? or I simply can't RP as Lotus? Either way it's silly.

    My god. I can only imagine how many people would get suspensions / bans if Nexon actually followed through with every single one of those.

  17. Default Re: Ban Definitions


    Day one of Demon Avenger, I encountered someone with an inappropriate guild name. Someone must have hacked the filter though, because there couldn't possibly be a filter that allowed this-
    http://i34.photobucket.com/albums/d1.../Maple0009.jpg

    I took the character name out, but that's the only edit. I seriously ran across that guild name on GAZED and, had I not seen this game hacked a thousand times before, would have been amazed that someone had pulled it off.

  18. Default Re: Ban Definitions


    Oops, a lot of my characters display my first and middle name...

    Do I have to pay to have their names changed (don't know if this is even possible still) to avoid getting banned? :P

    How am I supposed to call people by now then? With some I don't have problems since they have similar IGNs, but what about the ones that have completely different IGNs on ALL their characters?

  20. Default Re: Ban Definitions


    Just to make sure, you guys know that listing has been on the main website since like 2007 right
