>You have been muted for 34 minutes 8 seconds, because your comment was not original.
Can we get a list of everything that's ever been posted on /r9k/ so we can ctrl+f whatever we're about to post to avoid this?
Or, you know, just remove the muting and simply say, "Someone posted that already, try again."
Why a three day wait for appeal?

Hi moot. I know you're probably reading a lot of threads, so I'll try to make this one quick.
Yesterday night, my friend was banned, for the second time. Why? Because he was posting a thread that one of the mods doesn't like.
I wouldn't have minded this ban, or its harsh description so much, if he was allowed to write an appeal, instead of having to wait three days, when he is innocent.
Avatarfagging on /v/

I see this idiot avatarfagging every time I check out /v/. I've flagged it a few times and I've seen him get banned and a thread cleaned up but he's on all the time doing it.
When did bans on avatarfagging end, and if not, why aren't the bans lasting longer? If someone keeps repeating the same offense, why aren't the bans harsher? If they still don't stop, why are they allowed to keep using the same trips? If the bans are a simple slap to the wrist, they don't discourage people from acting like retards. If other users don't see examples being made of people, they fail to follow the rules.
On the matter of /v/

Three (two and half actually) observations about /v/ and possible future developments of it:
1) After the increased amount of moderation, /v/ has become more on-topic about videogames, however, /vg/, /vr/ and possibily /vp/ were made because talking about videogames on /v/ was close to impossible at the time.
Now that /v/ has effectively become ""/v/: Videogames" what will be of the aforementioned boards? Will they be re-absorbed on /v/?
2) A possible resolution to the "repeating digits problem" on /v/:
/v/ often used the "repeating digits" excuse in order to derail off-topic or not-liked (a.k.a. "shit") threads on /v/ but is also true that they were misused ("repeating digits" threads").
A possible solution to this, with the added accomplishment of "educating" /v/ would be to:
Turn it into a "game".
The rules are simple:
If /v/ learn to remain on-topic and not misuse "repeating digits" (no "repeating digits" thread, reporting rule-breakers, not replying to troll posts/threads) then the "repeating digits" are progressively unlocked (00, then 11, then 22 and so on)
If the opposite happen, then they are progressively locked till only 00 remain.
tl;dr of the above: "If they want them then they have to learn how to not misbehave with them"
3) On the matter of off-topic threads, some of them are kinda a "staple" of /v/ (expecially autism and rage threads) and even though they are now removed, they still crop up every once in a while.
A possible solution might be to allow them only on a specific day of the week (this as part of the second suggestion) in a similar way to /b/'s "Caturday"
The result would be a /v/ that remain on-topic for six days a week and is allowed to "blow off some Steam" on the seventh where the moderation is a bit more lax.
1) What will happen to the other videogame boards once /v/ is finally "fixed"?
2) How to train your /v/.
3) Pleasing both sides without disturbing the balance too much.
