There is no, absolutely NO REASON why you should give the community beta this privilege but not to the forums.

I don't care if you guys like Reddit 2.0 better, majority of your community prefers here. Forum moderators have no credibility at all. People even invented the phrase "Mods are Murder" for that sole reason. If Riot is going to require their moderators to explain why certain posts are closed/moved/deleted in the community beta, they should be doing the same here. This goes in the same regard on why people are banned.

If you continue to a perma ban, it should mean this: "You went too far, and we're not going to allow you to post here any longer. You've forever been banned." A perma ban is meant to be like killing someone/life sentence in jail without parol, they can't be trusted at all anymore and most be removed from the place where they misbehaved.

Now, this is what a temp ban looks like on GD: "You have been banned for violating the summoner's code." ...And that's it, there's no room for growth, reflection, or reviewing what you did wrong. It's just a slap on the wrist. Here's what a GD perma ban is: "You have been banned for violating the summoner's code." Whoop, thanks for letting me know what I did wrong officer. Oh well, time to just make a smurf, and negate the whole purpose of the ban!

Hell, I'd be fine if they just had automated messages emailed to you with an actual reason for being banned. Not just saying "you violated the summoner's code you're on your own to figure out how"...

If you make excellent threads like I do, you never have to worry about mods closing or moving your thread.

Only people who make bad threads have to worry.

riot is perfectly capable of sticking a post at the top of the thread explaining why the thread was closed
