First Warning

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I just got my first warning points. Not complaining about that, I just have some questions for clarification. I did a quick search for "warning" and nothing useful showed up.

 

How do these warning points work?

Shouldn't there be something about them in the forum rules?

Is there a maximum you can get before you get banned? Or is it simply a system to keep track when a person has gotten a warning and then allows for individual judgement from a moderator to ban on the spot?

How is decided how many warning points are given at a certain time?

 

Yours,

 

Fjuri

If you take the time to read the forum rules, you’ll notice the following statement:


The primary goal of this forum is to provide a place for honest, educational, civil, and fun debate on the topic of origins. Given the heated nature of the creation vs. evolution debate, this is not an easy goal to achieve so we will require members to follow the stringent set of guidelines below. To make life easier for the moderators, our goal is to weed-out the troublemakers early, which should also lessen interaction from moderators. We want to have as little editing or deleting of posts as possible, so instead we will seek to edit “people” .

As it states, the rules are stringent, yet there is latitude as to Banning. The warning system is used more for the moderators and admin, so that we can all view and understand what is going on with members that violate the forum rules. Some members receive no warning at all because of the severity of their violations; and some members are given more latitude because they may just misunderstand (a slight misunderstanding of the rules), or they rarely violate the rules. But sometimes it just boils down to their not taking the time to invest into reading the rules thoroughly.

AS far as banning, its usually a corporate decision amongst admin and moderators.

As an aside – I pointed out earlier; it doesn’t matter if you are a Christian, Atheist, agnostic, or whatever, if someone is a flaggrant rules violater, or is too abusive, they can be left go. And members of all walks have been banned.

Thanks for the explanation.

You're welcome, although it was just a brief encapsulation, and is not all-inclusive, it should be sufficient for the purposes. :)
