Punishment = Banishment



Very good thread to have up. And yes, you have to draw the line somewhere so people know you're not just screwing around. People here are incredibly helpful overall and very patient, so if you can't "get it", you don't belong on the forum.

To be honest, if you want a rules free board, go make your own. It won't be rules free for long once you get enough people logged on (of course that assumes you can get any interest in it anyway tongue.gif)

I didn't read the earlier posts so I'm not sure whether this had been asked yet but...

What are your system for those that did break these rules?

...besides the contempt of their peers of course and banishment (is this permanent?). And how do you use the little red squares on the bottom left hand corner of any post you made?

Right, thanks.


PS: I just want to add that I really think that this forum is one of the most easy-going forums I've ever participated in. Truly.

The little blue and red blocks make up the warning system, but only the staff can 'warn' you (when they see fit). Once the squares are all lit up you'll be temporarily banished from the forum. So, of course it's best not to let that happen. biggrin.gif


Hmm, on the matter of whether or not members will read it... bryant said you could sticky this thread in all sections of the forum. Maybe that will be of help somewhat? ^^ Awesome job, by the way!

Do you mean the little blocks below the username and avatar? blink.gif (If so, a spammer with a high rank has more chances to mess up it seems.)




Edit: Nevermind, you meant the blocks one sees when looking at their own profile (sorry for the confusing post) tongue.gif
I have no idea why I didn't notice the little blocks with "warn" next to them before laugh.gif

How long is this "temporary" banishment btw?

No worries, I didn't catch on at first either, until someone made a post about it in Technical Help, I think. biggrin.gif

Um, temporary banishment... o.o Start with the hard questions why dontcha? tongue.gif Guess it depends on the severity of the member's behavior. ph34r.gif

No problem. And you know it should be the other way around. Thank you for spending so much time/going through all that trouble to help out the newbies who need it most. wink.gif

Haha, thanks, and you're quite welcome. This little idea came about when I was most irritated by n00b behavior, and in order to keep a minute thread of my sanity, this came out. Equivalent trade.

Here's hoping that the people who need to read it actually do read it, because as mentioned before, it is a little on the long side. But it could've been longer. wink.gif

If nothing else, we all as members of the forum have a great guide to link to when replying to n00b forum issues. Some people are oblivious to their behavior until someone points it out and then they may change.

I've posted, pinned, and closed the guide in all sections of the forum except for the Site Support area and the two sub-forums in FMA Anime. This will be the only guide thread that people can post in for now.

Haha, thanks. Now that I think about it, maybe I should delete and post all of that every once in a while so when people first set foot in the forum's main page, that's all they'll see, and they may become curious enough to actually take a look.

Or not, because I'm lazy. *sits back in chair* biggrin.gif

spending so much time agonizing over noobs. The majority of them leave with the mass of us verbally assulting them and the ones who're worth something actually stay. Like when...thunder alchemist i think, sorry if i'm wrong, got a taste of me, i don't s/he around anymore. However, Hitokiri is still around. So is all this really necessary? But then again, theis whole forum acts as a time killer, but getting obsessed with a semi-imaginary so-called problem is...
