    New Updates to Infractions and Bans

    While discussing some things in another thread, I decided it was time to visit the infraction system again.

    While the point values are the same, I made two noticeable changes.

    First, the points for infractions now expire after 6 months for ALL infractions, except instant perma-ban.

    Secondly, there is NO autoban system any longer. Mods and Admin are now able to instantly ban anyone if they see fit for any length of time, just like the past. Of course, each ban will be discussed in staff forums unless it is a blatant disregard for the rules and clearly deserving of a ban. This again is a return back to the old style of moderation.

    FYI for those who haven't seen it, or want to, here is the current rule list with associated infraction level points. We will also be amending the rules (removing some, modding others) to lighten the load so to speak. We are going to be putting a lot of trust in you, the members, to post what is right and tasteful. Keep in mind as you post, a rule doesn't have to exist for a staff member to infract you for what you are doing.

    No Advertising Other Sites, Rule 14. 1
    Text Must be Black, Rule 17. 1
    No Fanboy Terminology, Rule 20. 1
    No Rep Begging, Rule 21. 1
    No Mod/Admin Begging, Rule 10. 1
    No 'l337 Speak,' Rule 8. 1
    Signature Violation, Rule 7. 1
    No Spoilers, Rule 6. 1
    No Religious or Political Topics, Rule 24. 1
    No Necro-Bumping, Rule 24. 1
    Don't Abuse the Smilies, Rule 15. 1
    No Thread Derailment, Rule 22. 2
    No Excessive Thread Making, Rule 23. 2
    No Impersonating Mods/Admins, Rule 18. 2
    No Abusing the Report Button, Rule 25. 2
    No Spam, Rule 1. 2
    No Infraction/Warning Contesting, Rule 12. 2
    No Ban Contesting, Rule 11. 2
    No Warez, Rule 5. 3
    No E-Mail Abuse, Rule 13. 4
    No Insubordination, Rule 9. 4
    No Insulting/Harassing Other Members, Rule 26. 5
    No Unfit for Minors Material, Rule 2. 5
    No Flaming, Rule 3. 5
    No racist or $#@!phobic remarks, Rule 28. 5
    No Trolling, Rule 4. 10
    Instant Perma-Ban 30

    Will old points, prior to today, expire as well? Because I have two points from 2007 that's still registered.

    I don't believe the Vbulletin software grandfathers the old infractions.

    Essentially this should be a moving forward from here policy.

    I would think that racist/$#@!phobic would be a bigger infraction than trolling, seeing as how that would be a personal attack rather than just trying to stir up trouble about whatever.

    I just wanted to be sure that linking to an article or game sale would NOT be constituted as advertising another web site. Is this correct, or is there no more linking to other pages?

    I have a question about the "Unfit for Minors Materials" rule.

    So basically, if I were to post a thread unfit fo minors here on out, I'd get a 5 point infraction? Is that enough for a instant temporary ban?

    Just want to call out that allowing swearing would arguably contravene the 'material unfit for minors' rule.

    Some of the language used here is very crass at times and definitely unfit for children's eyes, but allowable.

    Where's the line between acceptable and not?

    swearing, yes, is unfit for minors, but let's be real. You hear a lot of this on radio, tv, movies... etc...

    what we have sort of defined it as is something beyond language. Erotic imagery (not like lethal's av, but more showing), erotic or overly descriptive sexual text, gore, cruelty to animals, etc... but as is the case with every rule, it is up to the staffer as to what is or isn't allowed.

    Remove the infraction and ban contesting. It's important that members are able to speak with an admin, etc., when they've been disciplined wrongfully.
    Examples:


    Move trolling up to be right after Insubordination, 5pts.

    Other than those things, it all looks good.

    My postbit shows - Infractions 1/0 (0)

    That's from something expired from 2 years ago.

    I'm sure that it means when people spoil a game, movie, etc.. without the use of Spoiler tags. But even if you use them the text you typed still showed when you check your profile. zzkurozz said that the spoiler tags I used didn't hide the content I wrote.

    So I can racially abuse you as long as I dont troll. Always have and always will think this balance needs to be addressed.

    Wha??

    And at Black Wolf: See CuGuys post #10. As long as your post doesn't have any of that, you should be fine. As far how many points needed for a ban, I don't know. You have to look at the thread about infractions
