|Subject: Consequences of Breaking Rules 11/27/2008, 10:16 pm|| |
As the forum grows, the staff has decided that it has become necessary to enact consequences for members that break rules.
Although many members may disagree with a "points" system, it was the most logical and easy to use choice that we had.
Every time a post is in direct violation of our rules, the post will be edited and the poster will be given a "point" and notified of this fact. Staff are not above the rules and are also subject to points if they violate them. At certain point levels, infractions will be issued.
3 points: five-day forum suspension, one-month I6 suspension (if applicable)
6 points: two-week forum suspension, permanent I6 suspension (if applicable)
9 points: in the event someone receives a third infraction (i.e., a ninth point), the staff will discuss the situation and decide on an appropriate course of action on a case-by-case basis, from a longer suspension up to a permanent ban of the forum.
Note: The above serves only as a general guideline. On rare occasion, an offender may be immediately receive the maximum infraction (leading from a longer suspension up to a permanent ban of the forum), depending on the seriousness of his/her rule breaking (as decided by the Admin Board). Generally, be nice to others and respect the rules of the forum, and hopefully, no one will receive any infractions.
