There have been some comments made recently regarding our streaming requirements that I'd like to address as part of the accounts management team.

Those who have been around in the anti cheat communities over the years will know exactly when we tightened our restrictions. If not then here's some background:
http://www.pbbans.com/forums/pbbans-recent-events-t64420.html (for those who have access).

False data is the main reason for our tight streaming requirements and these are just a few cases of what happens without those requirements:

While it doesn't solve the problem completely, it does reduce it significantly.

Due to those events, the staff here at PBBans had several discussions on how to move forward, also consulting with Tony Ray of Evenbalance. That is when the new streaming requirements were implemented.

All clans/communities would need to be fully background checked. The only way to do full background checks was to ask for a roster for clans or admin contact information for communities, server information and access to view forums. Checking each application does take alot of time but we do it because we set ourselves a standard and want to stick to it.

We knew when we made the decision to tighten our requirements the easy option would be for people to go elsewhere, however we do believe in our slogan and decided it was worth the sacrifice to protect the community and the integrity of our MPI/MBI. If we were indeed only worried about numbers (like someone suggested elsewhere), we'd approve applications no matter what.

I have and always will take the time to help new streamers and point them in the right direction to get them started and so will all the staff. If we didn't want to help, we'd not be here. We have a special area of the forum for helping with streaming and accounts related issues and if a more direct form of contact is required, staff check Private messages regularly or there is our IRC live chat facility.

It's easy to read a list of terms and think "Omg!". I can understand that. However, please please realise that they were put in place for valid reasons and sometimes what first seems impossible to achieve is actually not as unattainable as first perceived.

Thank you.
