|"Banned users can post in here but they can only see their own threads."|
The Refugee Camp was a Facepunch forum section visible only to banned users, mods and Gold Members. It is intended for banned users to dispute or ask about their bans. Posting inappropriately in the RC can result in a ban being extended.
Prior to July 3, 2011, Gold Members were able to post as well as view the section, but under very strict rules and threat of permaban for even the slightest mistake, which garry saw as a form of idiot cull. This ability was finally taken away as garry said having to moderate the RC was "a waste of time."
