    HEADS UP! : The PAB system is now GDPR compliant and back online.

    Ok, so, we've had a few growing pains setting up a new PAB system to work within our new forums but we've finally got that sorted.

    The new system is based on Tickets, like you see in most customer service facilities across the web.

    Here is the "new and improved but old fashioned" procedure for submitting a PAB:

    The first step is easy peasy: click the "Submit PAB" tab in your nav bar:

    How to submit a complaint: new procedures for PABs: xenforo-pabs-submitpab_tab.jpg,Jan 11, 2018

    [​IMG]

    Read all the good and highly informative stuff on that page -- please don't ignore the PAB Policies & Procedures -- and when you're ready to give us your details click the link at the bottom:

    How to submit a complaint: new procedures for PABs: xenforo-pabs-pab_link.jpg,Jan 11, 2018
    [​IMG]

    Now you're looking at your Tickets page. Any Tickets you've created before are listed there but we're interested in creating a new one for your new PAB:

    [​IMG]
    How to submit a complaint: new procedures for PABs: xenforo-pabs-open_new_ticket.jpg,Jan 11, 2018

    There are, or will be, several type of Tickets but we want to do a PAB so select "PAB: New" from the drop-down box:

    How to submit a complaint: new procedures for PABs: xenforo-pabs-category_pabnew.jpg,Jan 11, 2018
    [​IMG]

    Fill in the info requested and at the bottom there's a text box where you can describe the problem you are having:

    How to submit a complaint: new procedures for PABs: xenforo-pabs-pab_desc.jpg,Jan 11, 2018
    [​IMG]

    Finally click that "Create Ticket" button at the bottom and -- if all is well -- you're done!

    Let me anticipate something that many of you are likely to encounter: an error pop-up complaining about too much text in the problem description area:

    How to submit a complaint: new procedures for PABs: tickets-how-to-7.jpeg,Jan 11, 2018
    [​IMG]

    The bottom line is that text box is enforcing a 500 character limit -- roughly 100 words -- on your problem description. We've always asked that people provide BRIEF problem descriptions, hopefully the text limit here will help encourage that.

    Finally, you'll see that there is an "Upload a File" button at the bottom. Please don't. If we need further material from you we'll ask for it.

    Ok, that's pretty much it. Needless to say if you have any questions, concerns or problems please don't hesitate to say so here.

    I think this new procedure will make it much easier for players to submit a PAB which is a great thing. Although the old system was good this new one seems less daunting. Well done CM team and Max :thumbsup:

    This one is an actual ticketing system where the members will be receiving alerts on the status of the PAB. Not so much leg work is involved in this one. :D

    Yeah, I think this new system is bringing us into the 21st. My guess is that over time PABers will be much happier with this new process.

    Quick update of the complaints/PAB process: the new system seems to be working quite well. I think complaints are being processed noticeably quicker, largely because we can now track them directly on the site via the ticketing system.

    So now it's time to clean up some other PAB-related issues. GourdFollower and I will be redoing the PAB FAQ in the coming week or so to make it more "user friendly" and less of a slog. Hopefully we can come up with something less daunting than its current "Jabba The Hut" format.

    If you have comments, suggestions or requests please let me know.

    HEADS UP! : The PAB system is temporarily suspended while I update the FAQ to be GDPR compliant. We should be back in business within a day or two.

    OK, the new and improved PAB Policies and Procedures ("PAB P&P"? :) ) are live: Player Arbitration Policies and Procedures
    And the ticketing system is back online.

    I hope everyone will find the new P&P infinitely more "user friendly" than the old, over-long FAQ.

    Any questions/comments/concerns? Fire away, I'm ready. :D

    I did notice that the "Player Arbitration FAQ" link in the nav bar still points to the old FAQ location. I reckon Bryan will tweak that back into goodness shortly.

    One of the things I did when I re-wrote the old FAQ to become the new P&P was to ditch all the history and explanatory verbiage. When you go from 5000+ words to 800-ish something has got to go. :axeman:

    That said some of the old explanatory stuff is worth having around so ...

    GourdFollower had the great idea of doing a "post a week" thing on the PAB P&P to explain, elaborate, edify and illuminate P&P-related issues. :thumbsup:

    To kick that off I'll start with a little exposition regarding PAB P&P item 1.6 (email addresses):
    Over the years this has been one of the most troublesome requirements of the PAB process. Some people don't like hearing that their good old Hotmail address may be semi-borked, some can't be arsed to get a new one just to please the resident PAB police (that would be me :D ), and some folks just don't like to be told what to do.

    Believe it or not there were (and are) some very good reasons behind this bothersome email policy of ours, as was explained in the old FAQ section 3.1:
    So yeah, we didn't make that policy just to be dickish. We did it because those email services -- I would say "those dodgy, over-managed email services" -- pretty much forced us to.

    Fortunately times change, a bit. We now have the ticketing system which is a pretty decent alternative to conducting PAB business by email and, as it happens, seems to be a lot more popular with PABers.
