how many warning points do you have?

Recommended Posts

[hide=Admin Explanation of Warning Points]

I just wanted to clear up a few things about how warn points actually work.

 

We don't use warn points as a measure of severity of offenses. We do NOT have a system in place like minor offense = 1 point, more severe offense = 3 points, etc. We do NOT have a system in place like 5 points = suspension, 10 points = permanent ban. Instead, we basically just add a warn point any time we contact you for any rule issue. If you get a warning, you get a point. If you get a suspension, you get a point. So you could say the points just count the number of times you've been contacted by a member of the moderation staff.

 

IPB only recently heavily overhauled their warning system. Many of the old warnings will not have transferred over correctly (that includes reasons for warnings, messages sent to you in warnings, etc.). The moderating team keeps separate records that are still in tact, but the warning page you have now may not be 'accurate.' But with the new system, from here on out you will be able to refer back to your warnings and see the messages that were sent to you.

 

I guess the point of this post is that I don't want you guys to fret over how many points you have. Don't worry that you're getting close to a ban. That's not how it works. For the system we use, points don't expire. But when you break a rule and we're trying to determine "punishment," we always consider things like how long it has been since your last offense, the severity of your most recent offense, and so on. So don't worry about the number. Don't worry about having an unclean record. Don't try to figure out how you can get that 1 point (or more) to disappear. Those points are just for the sake of our record-keeping system.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about this, just contact an admin. :)

How many warning points do you have?

 

Thanks to the new IPB forum upgrade, we have been given access to how many "warning points" we currently have, which can be found by looking under our name to the left of each post.

 

If you so choose to respond to this thread - even if you don't decide to say your "magic number" - please bear in mind a few simple rules (in addition to the Forum Rules, which always apply):

 

1) You are only allowed to divulge information about your account and yours only---no talking about your friends' warning points.

2) If you so wish, you can briefly describe why you received your warning point(s) without going to in depth. Answers such as "censor evasion" and "trolling" are acceptable.

3) As always, you can't use this as an opportunity to bash the staff that was involved (or any staff member). This includes complaining about receiving a warning and the like.

 

 

I have 10. I'm just kinda wondering if that's high or low.

Yeah... I don't really think that this should be discussed either.

 

However, I would say that 10 is a pretty high number.

Warning points are nothing to be proud of.

All this topic does is encouraging rule breaking to "earn" those points.

Nine :thumbup:

Out of curiosity, are most of yours from /FG/ too?

 

5/9 of mine are from a two week span in Febuary before the mods closed down /FG/, and the other four are things like oversized sigs, so they're pretty irrelevant.

0 warnings. Hope to keep it that way.

You're accusing me of bigotry, how ironic. It's a nice attempt at argument, but your responses are facile and asinine, if not diatribe. Who's arrogant now?

7. Seemingly they're mostly for hilarious but immature trolling antics.

Why would we want to 'earn' warnings? If anything, it encourages us not to screw up.

 

I've got one. I can't help but think I should have more...

It's like when you get points on your driving license. Now you've got some, you need more. Happens all the time. Fall-proof logic.
