I'm curious what your suggestion would be for a forum as large, as busy and with such varied personalities as are seen on here would be. Only until you see it from our perspective can you understand why it's done the way it is. But I would still be curious to hear what you have to say.I thought this was a joke until I saw there is actually a Wiki page for infraction points. Perhaps not the most adult method of dealing with issues, but YMMV.
I'm so glad you asked this question. I looked too and couldn't find any. It would break my heart if I had any. This site means so much to me.So if you don't see an infractions tab on your user profile does that mean you haven't had any? Or am I just not looking in the right place? I don't think I have any, but...hahaha
The points expire, just like traffic citations. So they essentially become a reference for us when dealing with a member if they garner our attention again. And warnings don't carry any points but serve more of an official notice and event marker. The points can be a double-edged sword since they can expire causing the count never to make it to banned status (making members wonder why some problem children are still here)....how I'd feel if I accrued infractions after paying for an upgrade. This is like gaining points on your CSA score on your CMV license, after paying for education, citations and court fees, not to mention a good lawyer. Good way to track the mischievous meddlers. ;-)
