how is that all the better? because you (or another server owner/anyone with a pw) might think so? so special considerations should be made for the server owners but not the players then.
it doesnt take that much thinking. im just saying that in the public use of a private server, private matters should stay in the latter.
thats not to say that someone cant get themselves banned from ladle though.
For now let's just say this until we have something better:
Ladle/Operations wrote:11. Be aware of preexisting bans on tournament servers. If you were previously banned from a Ladle server it is your responsibility to discover the ban and make arrangements with the server administrator beforehand. There is no guarantee a ban can be lifted on Ladle day.
btw, there was no real change in the edit to the rule you wrote- the server administrator still decides if he/she doesn't want to let someone play.
ok cool, youre telling people to be aware. im sure they already were, and how does that really help the person anyway?
anyway, i think you basically agree, you just need to think more longterm:
Fortunately, the persons offering tournament servers have been reasonable people thus far
