I said I'd put this up sometime last month, but I decided to do other things instead. Doesn't matter now though since it's been implemented.

This is pretty straightforward: all mods including site staff can now give you infraction points. Depending on how many points you decide to rack up, you can be banned. Alternatively, you can choose to heed your warning and not get banned at all.

[table]Infraction level|Points|Expires in…|Additional notes
Frivolous posting|10 points|One month|Spamming to play the Inferno, get to premium, etc.
Minor harassment|10 points|One month|
Spamming|10 points|One month|Includes posting something that was previously deleted
Flaming|30 points|One year|
Explicit content|90 points|One year|Posting porn or extremely violent material (pending permanent ban)
Bot advertising|150 points|Never|[/table]

You are automatically banned once you accumulate…

[table]Points|Consequences
30 points|Three day ban
60 points|Two week ban
90 points|One month ban
120 points|Two month ban
150 points|Two year ban[/table]

Any questions or feedback, please feel free to address them here.

This seems fairly tolerable. I'm only slightly fearful of abuse from mods. I mean it should be more reinforced how serious this punishment is. Otherwise it could be used so casually because some mod doesn't like someone. Not to question some mods integrity, but nonetheless it could happen.

That's pretty much why bot advertising is set to a two year ban instead of permanent. I'd have an easier time keeping track of whether or not the system is being abused.

FAQ mothafukah do you read it? said:
Making derogatory remarks toward other members, harassing them, or otherwise making their stay here one that is abusive and unfun instead of welcoming and enjoyable is considered flaming. Harassment via reputation comments and thread tags will also not be tolerated.

During your first couple of offenses, a message (reply to your post, private message visitor message, etc.) and/or negative rep will be used to warn you, but if the problem persists, bans will be dished out. Each offense will have a longer ban period, eventually leading up to a permanent ban.

there you go .

Slightly? Eh.
Hmm, yes, slightly. I think it's pretty clear that this isn't just something like rep. I think it could use a bit more emphasis, but other than that I don't feel that the mods would go out of line with this.
