Checking your Inbox and Responding to PM's
When a staff member tries to contact a member it is usually done by PM- when possible it is also done by e-mail or instant messengers.
The problem about the PM system is that some of you have not even been checking your private messages - especially those communications, advisories or even warnings given out by staff members, then…when you finally discover you were banned or warned for breaking a rule, etc. you retaliate against the staff member who had issued these PM's to you when it is your responsiblity
to keep tabs on your own inbox.
When a member is breaking rules and does not respond to the PM's sent to him by a staff member…we really have no other choice than to block this member's account since we do not know if he is not responding on purpose or is simply too absent-minded to check his inbox and this is the only way we can stop that member from continuing doing what has caused the problem in the first place.
At any rate- having to constantly try and get certain member's to correspond is like babysitting- it's very unnecessary and frustrating and often leads to nothing but problems and future tensions between that member and the staff member who had sent him the PM's.
I will mention this once and hope that you all assume the responsibility of checking your inbox on a regular basis to avoid these problems- if you do not check your inbox on a regular basis…I strongly suggest you do so at least every 2-3 days.
