A Change to the Rules

Unread postby Melea Lord » Mon, 28th Jul 2008 9:47

1. Three warnings and you are banned for a month.
2. Four warnings and you are permanently banned.

If I'd be the admin - there wouldn't even be official warnings. Who doesn't act like it's supposed to be should be banned permanently... I wouldn't care. That's the good old way it was on the internet, about 10 years ago... all people knew how to behave, following a certain common sense.

(yes... you can be happy with DL and ERC!)

Yes, well now they don't
now people don't often read the rules and so I can see a lot of newbies getting banned for a month as soon as they join
Ha, I hear you say, it is there own fault for not reading the rules
I agree, but still think they should be given a little bit of time to learn the ropes.
Perhaps a week in which warnings don't count but they are reminded to cease and desist, as well as read the rules.

One would really think that 1-2 warnings, along with links to the rules, would really be enough...

Not really.
As all the warnings arrive together, often you don't realise you are doing something wrong until it is too late

I myself would not be so harsh, but it's their decision.

Each warning is accompanied by two clear links to the forum rules, an explicit reason for said warning and a track of how many warnings said user already has, if the user can't discern why he got them and how to clean up his/her act, it's nobody's fault but their own.

edit: not to mention the links to the bloody rules are in at least three signatures and every single viewforum/topic/posting page.

I think what they mean is, a user does three offences and then logs off (a double post, a revive dead topic here and a smiley spam there). They'd be banned without knowledge of what they did.

I was cursed with a sense of honesty. I can't count the amount of detentions I've got from telling a teacher what I think of their owrk.

When I was stil a n00b (I still am) I got a warning from DL about slang....heeheeehee.....But every time I post, I watch out for stuff like that. Maybe other n00bs are scared enough from just one board warning.
