Exclamation The infraction system - how it works

As some of you well know, we have started using an infraction/warning system since moving to the new server. We've mostly worked out the bugs, but will continue to manage the system to fit the needs of moderating this site. The last paragraph of the TOS reflects this change.

Quote:
In order to facilitate the enforcement of the TOS, and to better track repeat offenders, this BB uses an infraction/warning system. This is a tool for the staff to use, but is not to be considered the only method for TOS enforcement. Use of the infraction system in no way overrides, nor circumvents, any policy already outlined. Infractions are assigned a point value. Accumulation of points can lead to a member being automatically banned for a pre-determined time frame. Warnings do not accrue points. Both infractions and warnings also have a pre-determined time for which they are "active". Repeat offenses will restart the clock for prior offenses.
Below is what the infractions and automatic ban catagories look like. I will eventually merge this with the "new members" thread Andrus has stickied.

Having to move/merge thread 2 Points. Well I think this will eliminate alot of the clutter. I think it should be about 10 or 15 points though, just my opinion though.

Not only that...but can we have a scoreboard? You know, something that keeps track of the most offensive posters?

Maybe have another points system for quality of posts, decided by the posters themselves?

This could be quite amazing.

Not necessarily with the extend and accumulation functions in place.

Members should also remember that we can and will adjust the points and time frames as needed.

Just out of curiosity, I have the following questions. If you don't feel like answering, no big deal. I'm currently involved in some 1st Amendment work in the legal profession, so I found this very interesting:

1.) How do you differentiate b/c a 'personal attack' and 'calling out a MOD'. Is the only diff the obvious one of one involving a MOD and one doesn't?

2.) How do you define 'Starting a False Rumor'... I suppose one you just made up? Technically, even if based on a 'reasonable' source, if it later turns out to be inaccurate, that's still arguably a 'False' Rumor.

3.) If you insult another member who is a minority you'll penalize that heavier than if the person isn't?

4.) What's the difference b/t 'inflammatory' and being 'rude/uncivil?'

5.) For that matter, what's the diff b/t being 'rude/uncivil' to someone and 'personally attacking' them?

I'll just stop there.

Please note that I'm not trying to be a schmuck here, but believe it or not it's amazing how much people/groups struggle to develop reasonable guidelines when it comes to appropriate behavior. I actually think this is one of the better ones I've ever come across. And like I said, if you don't want to bother answering, no problem. Just writing this out helps me when studying such matters.

Thx!

There should be posts that let members accumulate positive points, IMO.

Staff members can see how many infractions and/or warnings a member has by clicking on their name. I'm not sure if individual members can see their own.

As far as a scoreboard goes...no way. I'm not about to try and keep up with a public viewable database and I'm fairly certain no one else on the staff wants to undertake it either. One of the main reasons for using this feature is so we don't have to keep a manual list. Someone wants to keep pushing the envelope...the system takes care of it automatically.
