'Cause I just wanna die before my heart fails
From heartbreak or cocktails
I'll know the day I die I lived through heaven
And that I gave it hell
And if it hurt, oh, well at least that's living

I don't think it should be brought back simply because its funny. :(
Its most likely still able to be done but only for certain situations and not really used.

Well. I'm not sure at this point if I'm ever coming back. If we ever spoke and you actually enjoyed talking to me, PM me and I may eventually show up and send those PM's my contact info for skype/kik.

Agree. I was trying to think of situations it would be used, but I couldn't really think of anything outside of admins joking around with their friends or something. Someone spamming chat gets banned to another room can just do the same thing. Same with switching poses a lot/ moving around a lot (is this still a rule or just a courtesy thing?) and all of the other chat rules I'm aware of

Flooding/spamming chat is done with moving, changing poses, and text. Aways are the grey area sometimes I think (don't quote me on that I'd have to check the rules) and is against the rules.

Bans were never really a joke, think its more of a smack on the hand to behave.

It's a rule.

It was before my time as an Admin so I'm not sure about it, but I'm sure an alpha or older member of the team could explain. I'm assuming it's because eof what you said, though. I also think it conflicts with our "naming and shaming" rule and also would cause users to break our ban/warning discussion rule.

I can't actually remember if it was entirely joke intended or not but I always seen the Kindergarten ban as a lesser type of ban. It was mostly seen as funny because that room really is a massive joke, but the whole ban thing was serious - it still got added to your record, it still counted on the ban ladder, etc. I'm pretty sure it was just a way to get people to acknowledge that their recent behaviour on chat hadn't been acceptable thus meaning they're stuck in only that room for x amount of time and if it continued then it'd be a 'real' ban.

Personally I think that it's good method when it comes to rehabilitation, so it'd be interesting if it was brought back.

As I recall, the team stopped doing that because it just seemed like an unnecessary step for infractions that ought to be dealt with via warnings/regular bans. It was also inconsistent, as some admins would do it, and some would not, and there wasn't really a specific line drawn as to when it should be used and not.

I'm honestly pretty indifferent on the matter, myself, but that's the gist of the reasons for why it stopped being a thing.
