Change in Warning Policy (again)

We have decided to adjust how the warning system works. We are increasing the length each warning lasts to accommodate for the days your account is suspended. We're also lowering the amount of warnings you can get before you're banned. Here is a breakdown of how long suspensions will last with each warning point:

1 warning point: 24 hour suspension.

2 warning points: 48 hour suspension.

3 warning points: 72 hour suspension.

4 warning points: Account will be automatically banned.

Members will have a limit of 10 posts per day for 15 days upon returning from each suspension. While a user has a warning point they will not have access to “Clubs” and “Shenanigans”. Dupe accounts created in order to work around a suspension will result in another warning point.

...or just don’t be a dick.

Do the 4 warning points have to be acquired in a certain period of time to result in a permaban, or just 4 points over all?

As Tom said, the 4 warnings must be active to be banned. So yeah, 16 days basically. I'm thinking about setting a broader limit of X warnings in X months gets more restrictions applied (I was thinking a post limit that would last 60+ days). But don't want all of these changes at once. We'll try this first and see how things go forward.

But seriously, block Advice and not Shenanigans.

I still believe that doing that would unfairly punish newer users who break a rule. And I don't think it's really been an issue lately, and if it is, we've already talked about being more strict with members who do certain things just to directly fuck with members they don't like.

Why exactly are clubs and shenanigans specifically banned? Not complaining, just curious.

We decided that Clubs and Shenanigans are "extras" on GDC. So people who have warnings lose the ability to view the extras.

I really don't know why you don't ban the advice forum, too.

That used to be the rule, but then I think they decided that anyone who misbehaves in that forum shouldn't ever be on GDC.

We decided it made more sense and was more fair to take away "fun" parts of the forum than a place some people rely on for advice and support, especially as most people get suspended just for silly behaviour unrelated to Advice. The only real reason to exclude someone from there would be they were suspended specifically for abusing their access to it, which is rare, and like Adam mentioned if someone was doing that in a serious way they'd likely be banned anyway.
