The Newbie protection act, its rival (ANPA), and in fact the whole sub-culture of the Newbie bat, newbie shield, etc, is now henceforth banned from the site, and hence will be enforced in the usual manner of bannage and warn increases.

Hence, you now have a period of two weeks grace to change custom ranks/ signatures before we crack down on them. Anyone breaking this announcement will incur the mods collective wrath full mightility.

The reason for this is that once, when it was solely a TzeenchPlayer idea, it was funny, it was original, it was new. Now its been done to death and you're all flogging a dead horse. Now please, have some maturity. If you want to have that sort of fun, do it in our IRC room.

That is all.
