  • You don't need to.


    Would much prefer that you accept the offer that you have recieved from Hawk.


    Oh and I can find previous warnings aswell and post if you want me to? :)

  • The warning system is in place but when we give warnings it also gives points. It does not take long for many members of this community to compile enough points to be banned.
    So that was my reasoning before about being a bit more lenient and our crew doing simple edits while giving a verbal warning if the infraction was not a big one.




    So again I have instructed the crew to do simple edits or removals for now and we see how that goes.

    Thanks.


    Well, this seems like a huge disadvantage to modding the forum in a sensible way. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that it has to be the same on all domains, and since the germans are strick, that is the default? :D (don't need to answer).

  • Question about bans: how come when your account gets banned you receive a message about why you’re banned, but you can’t read it cause you’re banned?


    Asking for a friend

    That has been something we have talked about before as crew and have sent it upstairs so hopefully soon we will hear something back on that.


    It is counter productive for sure.

  • Thanks.

    Actually, it's a HUGE advantage to modding in a sensible way.
    The warning system might've not given you infraction points previously, but it does now.
    So we are asked not to use it when not necessary. Verbal warnings are much more sensible than official ones, in my humble opinion.

  • So me getting a warning for asking a question a month ago is about to get reverted and a public apology will come? I'm looking forward to it :thumbup:

  • That depends entirely if you have a smooth running crew operation where you know where the list lays imo. If yes, sure.


    Having said that I am also for sending a message in some mild cases, instead of "escelating" it to a warning if I came across as a infraction-hungry guy.

    Don't push it :p

    I assume you mean 'where the line lays/lies' ? if not, can you please elaborate?


    But yes: we'd rather just give a nudge in the proper direction over using the ban hammer right away. I'ts counter-productive.

  • Yes, the saying got lost in translation there :rolleyes:

    I replied? Think you may be drunk, or the forum gnomes are messing with us!

  • omg, standards are slipping after only a few days... I apologise to Rhianna :D


    If I were a mod,
    even just for a day
    I'd roll outta bed in the morning
    And throw on what I wanted and go
    Delete all the posts that made no sense
    And chase all the bots
    I'd kick all who deserved it
    And I'd never get confronted for it
    Cos I was just doing my job

  • Everyone quiet! Our queen is singing.


    Everyone clap for the queen.


    *cluck* *cluck* *cluck*

  • It's not that standards are slipping, but we should be having a little bit of fun.
    Over-moderating never helped any forum, and we know where to draw the lines.

  • It's a bit poor when a mod from the netherlands is posting on the UK forum, obv means that the UK are somewhat deplete in Mods...

  • I'd run for mod, but I think I'd get demoted..... before I even became one.
