Thanks for responding to my question, but it wasn't answered fully. Maybe I need to be more clear. Also if this question has already been answered somewhere, I apologize. If we follow banning procedures and w/k/b or permaban depending on the severity of the racist remarks, do we still need to submit ban requests? Example 1: A guy types in chat "nigga I'm boss". I warn him. He types it in again after a few minutes. I kick him. He comes back in and does it again. I ban him permanently. Do I need to submit a ban request or will my admin notes suffice? Example 2: A guy types in chat "fuck you nigger sniper noob". I permaban him instantly. Do I need to submit a ban request or will my admin notes suffice? I wish you guys didn't close threads so quickly so people could respond if necessary... Edit: The reason I'm asking is because I keep on seeing ban requests for offenders using blatant racist remarks that are being directed at people. Since these offenders should have been permabanned instantly, why is it still necessary to submit ban requests?
