Mod could choose if you spend 15min in jail or do you pay 15% of your balance as a fine.
60min jail or 60% etc.
If 60% of your /balance would go to bit heaven it would hurt a lot no matter how much money you have.
Over 60min jail times should be jail in 100% of the time, but under that?
In my case (I have a 12mil balance) 5% fine would be a lot worse punishment than 5min in jail.
P.S. For those who didn't bother to calculate 5% would be $600,000 in my case.
It's not the fall that kills you. It's the sudden stop.

Short (and simplified) explanation why I suggest this.
In Finland if you are caught doing 140km/h in 120km/h zone the fine is determined on your income.
If you make 50,000€ a year you have to pay 500€ fine if you make 75,000€ you have to pay 750€ fine etc.
Largest speeding ticket ever issued in Finland is about 200,000€ and that hurts a lot even if the guy makes millions.

edit:
There is no maximum day-fine which may lead to considerably high fines for high-income persons. For example, in 2001, a Finnish businessman with a yearly income of 10 million euros, received a relatively mild punishment of six day-fines, amounting €26,000, for driving though a red traffic light. In 2009 a businessman was fined €112,000 for travelling at 82 kilometres per hour in an area with a speed limit of 60 kilometres per hour.

your incredibly rich, making money is insanely easy for you.
the rest of us dont have the luxery of being the richest person on the server
and being able to buy your way out of jail seems very stupid in my opinion.
they are there to be punished, not to pay their mortgage -.-

Yes I have a 12mil balance, but making raw emc in to 600,000 ic takes me a lot longer than 5min and I need to do /warp bank about 10 times to sell all that ic.
And that is just 5min jail vs 5% of my bal.
What about if the punishment would be 50% of my balance.
How long it would me get back to #1 if I lost 6mil of my 12mil bal?
And this kind of punishment is really fair because if someone is $1 from getting to Expert --> Pro /rankup losing 50% of his balance would hurt him as much it losing half of my money would hurt me.
He wouldn't lose so much money as I would, but he can't make money as fast as me so imho it's fair.
And would be mod's choise does he want to put me in jail for 15min or take 15% off my balance.
15min in jail is nothing, but 15% from my blance is a lot and it would hurt a lot.

good idea but think about it
that would give people an easy way out of jail and maybe encourage somepeople to do crime and carry on playing with just a little less money? and also why would it matter to you guys anyway as you shouldnt be doing anything bad enough to put you in jail.

The problem with this is that say someone griefed and they pay said fine what is stopping them from griefing again?
Thanks, old friend.

No disrespect chuck but i mean what is stopping anyone now from doing whatever they did again? i mean yeah we jail them possibly ban them but there is always the possibility that they will do it again, idk Maybe depending on the seriousness of the crime they could get a fine and be jailed for however long maybe this would give the person that little more incentive to not do it again.

I would say punishments would be a decrease in placeable collector credits.
The more serious the crime,the more credits for each tier of collectors would be docked.
This is a very serious deterrent because the server places an already heavy limit on collector and everyone likes to keep their collectors at their own number.

Jails are when we think a person will change after applying the punishment.

For the people we think that jail has no effect, we will ban instead.

I'm 100% against 'bribing' yourself out of punishment. So no, unless Thowee makes me some VERY good pie, I'll veto vote 'No' against this.
