    The User Infraction System is designed to make moderation of the site more automated and more consistent.

    It works on a points system, with members being given points for breaches of rules.
    Once a viewer reaches 10 infraction points, they are automatically banned. Some infraction points never expire, some last for just a few days, after which your points balance reduces.

    In most cases members will give you a warning (with no points) for the first breach. Points are given for subsequent breaches.
    This is a list of the current infraction rules that I have come up with to start things off. I am still experimenting with the feature so things will change over the next few weeks. To give a member an infraction, click on the [​IMG] gif on the top of each message posted.



    <table align="center" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="3" width="75%"><tbody><tr align="center"><td align="left"><label for="il_5"><input tabindex="1" checked="true" value="5" name="infractionlevelid" id="il_5" type="radio">Excessive use of graphics/huge images</label></td><td>1</td><td>10 Day(s)</td><td align="left"><input tabindex="1" value="1" name="warning[5]" type="checkbox"></td></tr><tr align="center"><td align="left"><label for="il_4"><input tabindex="1" value="4" name="infractionlevelid" id="il_4" type="radio">Inappropriate Language/Off topic</label></td><td>1</td><td>10 Day(s)</td><td align="left"><input tabindex="1" value="1" name="warning[4]" type="checkbox"></td></tr><tr align="center"><td align="left"><label for="il_2"><input tabindex="1" value="2" name="infractionlevelid" id="il_2" type="radio">Insulted Other Member(s)</label></td><td>1</td><td>10 Day(s)</td><td align="left"><input tabindex="1" value="1" name="warning[2]" type="checkbox"></td></tr><tr align="center"><td align="left"><label for="il_6"><input tabindex="1" value="6" name="infractionlevelid" id="il_6" type="radio">Quoting huge chunks of message unnecessarily</label></td><td>1</td><td>10 Day(s)</td><td align="left"><input tabindex="1" value="1" name="warning[6]" type="checkbox"></td></tr><tr align="center"><td align="left"><label for="il_3"><input tabindex="1" value="3" name="infractionlevelid" id="il_3" type="radio">Signature Rule Violation</label></td><td>1</td><td>10 Day(s)</td><td align="left"><input tabindex="1" value="1" name="warning[3]" type="checkbox"></td></tr><tr align="center"><td align="left"><label for="il_1"><input tabindex="1" value="1" name="infractionlevelid" id="il_1" type="radio">Spam/repeated posts/unauthorised ads.</label></td><td>5</td><td>10 Day(s)</td><td align="left"><input tabindex="1" value="1" name="warning[1]" type="checkbox"></td></tr><tr><td colspan="4">

    Re: The user infraction system - No points involved. It's a tool for community modera

    To start off with, any user who reaches 10 points will be banned for ONE DAY (24hours). There are no permanent bans.

    The system shows who gave the infraction. There is no such thing as an anonymous infraction. Everything is transparent and open. :p

    The points are not cumulative and they expire after the stated period. This is unlike the reputation system where seniors can end up with 1000s of points while newbies have to start with 10. In this forum, all are on an equal footing but you have to behave or the rest of the community can end up preventing you from posting for 24 hours.

    Have fun. Let's see how it goes.

    Nothing like getting off to a good start with community policing. We already see some excesses, with some vested (?) political interests and what have you:p

    bro you got to work harder to change the mentality and thinking of others. It's something like a mountain in front of you, something that cannot change overnight. The person must first understand what you are trying todrill into their heads. By reminding them to keep unsinkified themselves will not help a single bit unless they actually do realise your intentions^^

    but I do understand what you are getting at cheers happi happi!!

    Maybe you should also include your pet peeve -- the "advice" and "advise" thing ;)

    And for anyone who supports Windows perhaps half a point :)

    Re: The user infraction system - No points involved. It's a tool for community modera

    Community policing is a great idea but it could descend into mob lynching if an individual does not subscribe to the few. Every forum will have its own docile members and others more aggressive in their postings. I would really suggest that two different voters to make an infraction sticks. This will prevent stifling the forum's expression where everyone is too careful in posting to avoid being carded. :)

    There might be a flaw here, with this system, supposed with an army of clones who target a certain personnel will keep him permanently banned? We do still need moderaters here.

    PM me if you want me to become one.
