In light of recent event, some questions and discussion has arisen within my tribe. So we are requesting a clarification of the rules from Dev, as no one else can be certain of anything. I hope this is the correct forum for this question, but it seemed the most appropriate choice.
1) If one is banned, is the banning intended to be a ban of the PLAYER or merely a ban of the account? Is it acceptable for the banned person to start a new account or take over an existing account from someone else?
2) Are bans server-specific or applicable to all servers? If someone is banned here, can they go play on one of the other servers (or continue to play on one of the other servers)?
3) Could we be given more technical info on how banning works (is it IP based, which can be gotten around with proxies, etc.)? I realize you may not be comfortable including this information, as it might give a means to work around a ban, but there was some innocent speculation (we do get curious, you know), so I wanted to include the question and let you decide how much we can be told.
