    Default Minor Rules/Infractions Changes

    Due to the fact that there seem to be an increasing (but still small) amount of adults who want to behave like children on the forum and seem to have the inability to debate and discuss civilly we have made some modifications to the rules.

    The infraction for Harassment: Excessive Personal Attacks is now worth 10 points, this means that receiving it will result in an instant 1 day ban. If you can't cool your head and treat your fellow forum members with a basic level respect, we will assist you in taking a break.

    We have created a new infraction: Trolling: Instigation. We've seen an increase as of late in people who seem to have no useful value on the forum except to act like idiots and rile people up. This infraction is also worth 10 points and will result in an immediate 1 day ban.

    Please keep in mind that even though these infractions individually only result in a 1 day ban, they stick with you for 30 days, so coming back the day your ban expires and getting another one will then result in a 1 week ban.

    The beauty of this is, it will probably affect very, very few people since 99% of our members seem to be able to conduct themselves as mature adults. This is targeted at the 1% who seem unable or unwilling to do so and in turn drag everyone else down to their level.

    Happy foruming.

    Thumbs up Re: Minor Rules/Infractions Changes

    We have introduced similar functions on another forum where i am a moderator, and it has worked well. As well to have moderators take time to write a personal note regarding infractions, and sometimes, we have found that a warning to a long time member may be all that is needed.

    Keep the place clean, i like it here

    Just a notation that infractions are not visible to the public/membership.
    If someone is given an infraction you will not know unless the mod edits the post or announces in the thread. This is not done for most minor infractions and warnings.
    Point being that enforcement is not 100% visible.

    And sometimes it sends them off the deep end into a path of self destruction.
