Post Mic Spamming
Here are the rules about mic spamming, So everyone can be clear, I would like all of the admins to read it for a good overall understanding of the rules. Also if anyone finds these rules to be unsatisfactory, they can notify me immediately by posting below.

Anyone can play a sound clip in a concise time period on our servers, or longer if it is indeed funny.
However If more than one or two do not wish to hear the clip, It must be ceased regardless of previous support from other users. If there is a individual complaint about the music, then some one should inform the individual about their mute options in the tf2 menu.

For those who choose to ignore the above rules by Spamming annoying clips that no one wants to hear for a lengthy period shall be muted. Any user that chooses to play a sound that is ear-rape will be warned or muted depending on severity and length of the before mentioned ear-rape.

Any user on our server who makes infractions on these rules with prior knowlege of the consequences, and chooses to spam music anyways will be banned without notice.

Appeal System:
All mic spammers have the chance to appeal their muted status once, and admins can unmute depending on severity of the previous sound clip played by the appealing user. If a user is muted for simply being extremely stupid, rude, or annoying, they have no chance for appeal.

EXAMPLE:
Tim comes on the server he plays this great solid snake song, After 2 minutes four people have said "okay enough", he stops, everything is cool, but lets say he didn't stop and another person complained, a admin has already notified Tim that he should stop, and now he is muted. He leaves the server, comes back and starts playing it AGAIN. This constitutes a ban for ignoring admins.

Admin support & changes.
Admins: If you ban some one, they can't ever help us. Muting them ensures that they can continue to play on our servers (thus increasing player count) and we can rest our ears as well.

There have been -6- changes to these rules:
1.Bans should be in place for those who continue spamming music in another game session after being muted in a previous one.
2. If more than two users complain about a music file, the spammer will be notified immediately to stop, and any individual complaints will be referred to the in-game mute option in the tf2 menu.
3. Added in the spoilers to decrease the Rules length.
4. Made the rules a bit easier to read, and smaller.
5. Changed Example to better illustrate the rules.
6. Tweaked the rules for maximum readability

Muting/Gagging only lasts for the session, when the map changes or the player reconnects they are no longer muted.
(I'm not 100% sure about the 2nd one).

If a single player complains he can mute the offending player himself you know.

Ra, your signature is to large and is distorting the forums, I'm posting this here because this is the first thread I saw it on.

I'm going to delete your sig, please resize it if you want to use it.
