Infractions

Someone asked about the infractions system we use - we have three levels that result in an automatic suspension or ban ;

60 points = Suspended For 7 Days.
80 points = Suspended For 14 Days.
100 points = Perm Banned.

The most common infractions are ;

Senseless Posting : 10 points.
General Behaviour Warning : 20 points.
Spamming (Licensed Members, Minor Offence) : 20 points.
Flaming & Trolling : 30 points.
Spamming (Licensed Members) : 30 points.
Posting Abusive/Offensive Material : 40 points.
Posting Copyright Material : 40 points.

10 and 20 point infractions expire after 30 days, the rest after 45 days.

Unlicesnsed Spammers get an instant ban (100 Points, No mercy)

The lower value infractions (10,20 points) can be issued as a warning (0 points) at the discretion of the staff member.

Of course, the 99% of members who behave themselves will never need to know this information - the rest will find out we have little time for members who cannot follow rules. You will get infractions, and suspended/banned if you get enough. Simple as that.

I'm scared to say this but that "senseless posting" is a pretty broad topic.

I got an infraction for it once and thought it was a bit subjective. But it does work because I don't post anything on the board now unless it is directly related to the conversation (as I hope this is)

If not, I guess I'll get one, but it's been a while.

A related question paul. Who polices the staff? Let's say... abusement of privelages (example: A staff member removes 2 vaild submissions that where there for months) And removed them because they go peeved off because a member reported threads that shouldn't have been in a certain area. What kind of infraction (slap to the wrists) would a staff member recieve for these kind of actions or are these warmly welcome and encouraged throughout staffland?

You got your answer in another thread. If you cant be bothered to PM the person, as they twice asked you to, then no one else can help you. It wont be discussed in this thread.

Ok, I've a question: I received a General Behaviour Warning back in January, and it says it's expired, but I still see it in my profile. Is it destined to stay there permanently?

It shows an accurate history of all infractions received. Expired infractions do not count towards the total 60 / 80 / 100 ban limit.

Not all of us have ever used the infraction system. I'm kinda curious myself how it works, but I don't know that I need to know so badly that I'll start spamming this site just to see.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)
