    Cuguy mentioned in the OP that there is no autoban system, saying that mods and admins are able to instantly ban anyone if they see fit for any length of time.

    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
    How is that supposed to work?

    Other than those things, it all looks good.


    My postbit shows - Infractions 1/0 (0)

    That's from something expired from 2 years ago.

    Problem is alot of users become defensive even if its a small warning which means its hard to get a normal discussion going.

    I can finally have these reversed and unnecessary infractions wiped from my history. As well, can't racism and aggressive $#@!phobia be considered trolling and/or flaming anyways? I guess that's up to the mod/admins choice given the situation.

    Yeah, but the whole idea that you can be infracted and that's it (99% of the time) is kind of unfair. IRL you get a trial and a lawyer to work on your behalf. Now I know PSU isn't RL and has its own TOS, but still there needs to be a process for this since normal members can't see the discussions taking place in staff forums about the infractions being given the green light.

    I think it should be allowed. There's nothing wrong with those that are civil having a conversation about it. If one is stupid about it, then the rule should be that the infraction/ban can be increased.

    Discussion CAN be had about these things. The rule is there to cover the public rants people put on about either themselves, or someone they are friends with receiving infractions. However, it is worded like it is to cover excessive ban contesting as well. People who don't want civil discussion, but rather flood your PM box with whiny posts about how PSU is so unfair and bringing up 200 archived examples about why they SHOULD be able to break the rules.

    Like when a member gets banned and his "buds" start threads asking why he was banned, or bring him back, etc... publicly is not the way to do that, as it is more an attempt to rally the masses to force a staff decision.

    I welcome ANY PM to ask about an infraction or ban, but if someone starts being $#@!ish and posting in the forums to launch into the staff and others for infractions, well then we will act on that behavior.


    And Matrix, we have always had a custom infraction option for anything outside of the rules. Our rules are not all encompassing, nor are they exclusive. While we don't have a rule specifically saying blood and gore are banned (although it could go under unfit for minors) we can ban or infract for it. basically any negative behavior the staff has always been able to smite users for. I just wanted to make it clear to anyone reading this, the rules are not ONLY what you can get in trouble for, but more so just what we are trying to clearly define. In the military this is called the "general clause" under the uniform code of military justice. If they can't find it in the rules what you did is wrong, they will put you under the general clause. Same thing here.

    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?
    Would someone please answer this?

    Keep in mind, this isn't a new list of rules. These rules (for the most part) have been around since the dawn of PSU over 7 yrs ago.

    To answer your question, yes, if a staffer felt it was deserved you could get an infraction.

    Most of the time though, especially if it isn't typical behavior, you will get a warning or two before hand to let you know you are treading a line.

    I can't stress this enough, our rules are not, NOT, absolute. It isn't completely black and white. break a rule = infraction. No, we like to have the staff use judgement when this happens, not just slap a rule violation down and move on. That is part of why I let go of the autoban. I thought that some people, and the rest of the staff as well did too, were banned just due to points and it didn't fit the infraction severity.

    "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. "

    I explained it in a following post. Our rules are not all knowing, all encompassing. There may be things out there people post that may not be explained in the rules that are simply inappropriate. Simply put, if someone posts something that is offensive, but isn't defined in the rules, we have the ability (and always have, always will) to make a custom infraction.

    definitely not used lightly if that is your concern. most of the custom infractions we hand out are because a member breaks many rules at once. Trolling, insults, etc... and we just hammer them. Rather than issue 2-3 infractions, we use the custom infraction. I don't seem to recall us ever issuing a custom for something outside of the rules, but it is possible.
