Banpuppy is angry. Some of you have been making a mess of the content tags system. Those same some of you are either already banned from rating or tagging content, or soon will be.

Rude or inappropriate tags will not be tolerated.

The initial ban is temporary. Eventually, we'll restore your ability to rate and tag files. Though we are merciful, a second violation is not advised.

Banpuppy is watching. Banpuppy is waiting.

Left here a long time ago.

Answer to this is probably "no", but...

What about joke tags that the file author approves of? As an example, my friend's Film Clip shows an unmanned Ghost glitching in Firefight, vibrating uncontrollably, and smashing him into a cliff. He was perfectly okay with the tag "author rams cliff".

I can understand banning "author rams babies" and the like (and indeed, I'm glad to see them go away), as those are obvious insults under just about all circumstances, but what of joke tags following the "rams" pattern?

smart, interesting, seems out of place.

Official fan of Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, (Problem with that?) Halo, and Bungie, also a total gaming junkie.

I can tell you one right now. He tagged my pic Author Rams Unicorns! WHAT THE F***?!

His Bungie.net profile is Mister Rollback, tell him Ktan shows no mercy.

If you have some free time and don't mind, please check out my Youtube channel, and maybe subscribe? I'd appreciate it.


God, I've done this ONCE on a video... Have mercy :(
(no but really, at most I've only tagged "author rams" 3 times)

Please tell me you'll only going for those who do it on EVERY picture they see :/

You could have at least spelled it right.

I like shorts. They're comfy and easy to wear.

Banpuppy is so cute...

  • 04.19.2011 3:10 PM PDT

By the gods what are you doing here, well don't just stand there man make the tea! Make yourself useful and look at my Fileshare.

I'm glad I'm not a ramtagger. That puppy...it stares into your soul :o

Have you seen my mind anywhere? I seem to have lost it...

I have seen you future

Is there some way to report offensive tags?

It seems like it would be a lot of work to go through and manually scan all of the files. Conversely an automatic system that just bans people with a tag that includes "rams" or "author rams" would be easy to bypass and could catch false positives.

He'd have instantly stopped and knelt down, one fist on the ground, hoping to be impervious to the officer's attacks. When this would have failed and he's in the back of the police car, he'd blame his predicament on his friends for not being team players.

I play for fun and armory completion. :)

Is this like the fileshare ban from Halo 3? Anyone been banned yet could tell us?

Definitely read that wrong. Banpuppy has skills of epic proportions-with those dark eyes and all.

While back, someone on an alt posted elsewhere on BNet that they'd received a tagban. Apparently, they can't apply tags at all, and any tags they applied in the past were completely and totally deleted.

Hook me up for a play-date

I appreciate this. :)

Awful stuff going around the tag system. I'm glad to see some relevant tags starting to roll around the network.

Love you guys for doing this. I'm sure I speak for all artists when I say that we will love having been cut the slack. :)

  • 04.19.2011 3:21 PM PDT

The reason why I stopped playing ranked was because of the booster/new accounts that were already higher up on their previous account. Too bad a new generation of sore losers had to ruin the skill gap in Halo 3.

-team player...

What do you mean by "tagging"? Jw

If you're passionate about the thing you're talking about, I'll always lend an ear.

I'm in tears, can someone get me some andrex tissues?
