4. You will act like a mature adult, even if you aren't one.Maturity is at the heart of a successful community. A small group of immature members and/or actions can bring down the quality of an entire community experience. Therefore we have decided to implement a three-strike system. If you are acting blatantly immaturely and it is causing any sort of problem in the community or the chat, you will be issued a warning to your account by a moderator. If you receive 3 warnings within a few months' time, you will be temporarily banned from the site to think about your attitude. Warnings are at the discretion of moderators, and your three warnings will be reviewed for legitimacy before you are temporarily banned. You will be notified each time you are warned, and a reason will be given for the warning - when possible, the incriminating post will be referenced.
I'm surprised no one has commented on this yet. Don't be afraid to express your thoughts as long as you do it in a respectful way.
Unfortunately this has led us to now introduce a completely non biased zero tolerance policy.
and I also hate experiencing people in the chat spamming neon cat for an hour. Thanks!
its your website and you can do with it as you wish but please define what is and isn't allowed better because this really is open to abuse.
A mod could literally give a warning for something that you may not know even breaks any of the current rules(as with my case, which i'll PM you about). Perhaps it wouldn't be if mods had to write up and send a detailed list of any supposed offenses to whoever they are giving a warning to. Maybe add that.
Ok, so the plan is that if we see a thread start to derail or veer off-topic then one of the staff will comment asking for the people responsible to behave and be respectful. Any futher derailment will be seen as a breach of the forum rules and a warning will be issued. Same rules apply in chat. You can still be more relaxed but you still need to remain respectful towards staff and other users.Yes, I was maybe a bit harsh earlier issuing you with a warning so quickly so my apologies for that one, but this is hardly the first time you have belittled a mapper in his own thread. That being said I absolutely agree with you that warnings should be handled in a professional manner and be written up in an offical way and PM'd to the user keeping it private. We will use this idea from now on in.At the end of the day other major forums use this policy. They will give out one (and only one) warning. Step out of line again and it's a ban. This forum has become to relaxed with the handling of reports, warnings and account supsensions but we need to be seen to be acting and that we will.
Also, could you change your profile pic, zen? It scares the shit out of me
As for discussion, you want to turn UGX into a hugbox?
Isn't it a bit unrealistic to believe that bias won't at some point play a role in a decision by a mod? Heck, how does one even know if someone is being biased 100% of the time?
Aye mate you don't know me so y don't you shut tf up ok buddy
