Still abusing vote isn't that harmful if you ban all of their account and made them serve a temporary ip/mac ban unless they are proven to be trading the nx into real world currency which deserves all kind of possible bans no matter what they say/do. Also, ip/mac ban seems to be too much for minor-mid offenses imo, I know most of the "my brother/roommate/girlfriend/coworker hacked and got all of us banned" are lies, but some innocent people could be paying for others mistakes. I mean, im not a fan of vote to win because people tend to exploit it, but it is what we got, but i do think that account ban is more than enough along with a temp ip/mac ban so they can't made a new character and have a new fresh start. I'm pretty sure most of these guys will be switching to a new server instead of starting all over again, but some will still be around looking for a forgiveness time to time as we all can see in ban appeals sections, shouldn't you just give them a shoot to prove themselves in let's say, 6 months ban? They'll be most likely just leave the server so I guess those who stay around and serves their ban won't be doing it again. It's just my tough on this matter, at the end it's an staff decision and we just throw here what is in our minds trying to give another point of view.
