Changes to warning system and more!

Lone

A couple weeks ago we asked you guys to provide feedback on the forum and the way things were going. Thanks to everyone who sent your feedback. We read them over and talked as a team about the changes we want to make going forward.

A suggestion we saw multiple times was that the tour section was a bit unwieldy. We all agreed, and decided to move past tour dates from the RevRad tour into their own subforum. That way when you visit the tour section, you're greeted by the next show that's coming up.

We've also decided to change the warning system so that "verbal warns" are now an actual warning point. This will help avoid situations where someone posts something after a warning is given and not knowing about it, and will also help make it clear when a mod is asking a user to stop doing something. These changes are outlined below.

Each warning point is active on your profile for 15 days. If you get another warning within that period, your warning point will go up by 1 and include further restrictions each time until you're banned.

  • 1st Warning: No suspension. No restrictions on posting.
  • 2nd Warning: 1 day suspension. Restricted to 10 posts per day.
  • 3rd Warning: 2 day suspension. Restricted to 10 posts per day.
  • 4th Warning: 3 day suspension. Restricted to 10 posts per day.
  • 5th Warning: Banned.

When you're warned you'll get a notification with the reason and have to acknowledge it before you can post again. Upon returning from each suspension, there will still be a 10 posts/day limit for 15 days. While a user has a warning point they will not have access to “Clubs”. Duplicate accounts created to get around a suspension will result in another warning point.

Thanks again to those of you who sent in your feedback. If you have suggestions or concerns, please reach out to us so we can help find a solution.

Did someone reincarnate Shenanigans and make it invisible to crazy old cat ladies? I shall send a strongly worded letter to my Member of Parliament.

I'm a crazy old cat lady and don't see it too. I see a pattern here.

Maybe it should be stricter, but as long as it works to keep trolls and other uncivilized cyber cave dwellers out, it works just fine. Also, kudos for giving the RevRad tour its own forum. All these legs and dates can be quite overwhelming to keep track of.

Just out of curiousity, what kind of things result in a warning?

Dearest Londres, I have a suggestion. Apply a default setting to member accounts, adding a certain squawking troll to everyone's ignore list.  Let him talk to himself.

Trial it for a month or so, you can all thank me later.

Worked on me. I'd say it's worth a shot.

Breaking rules as outlined in the forum guidelines. It usually happens when a mod asks someone to stop doing something (eg making personal attacks during an argument or spamming a thread) and they decide to carry on. Basically if you do something you know you shouldn't be doing.

I feel like GDC is my home away from home away from home. LOL. I've just been distant. Like, everyone does amazing things on here and it's amazing that this forum is what it is and I love it. However, after the big changes as of July 2015, I lost interest and took a long hiatus. I planned on coming back way more regularly and it never happened. I still get sad thinking about it. :PMaybe... Maybe someday I will be back.
