Dear Members, In an effort to keep our forum user friendly and clean, we are introducing the “Infractions” system. It’s a system to monitor and manage members and posts that are not following the forum etiquette. Here is how the system will operate. For every transgression of the forum etiquette, members will receive penalization points. As they accumulate a certain amount of penalization points, their forum privileges will be progressively removed, as below. 20 points – member can’t access private messages 30 points – member can’t access private messages and can’t post messages in the forum. 50 points – member will loose all privileges and will not be able to access the forum. Below is the list of transgressions that will be penalized through the infraction system. The numbers in parenthesis indicate the number of penalization points and how long the penalty will be in effect. For the first four transgressions, we will send a friendly reminder when it happens the first time. From the second time onwards, we will start applying the infraction points. Incorrect / Incomplete Thread Title (5 pts, 10 days) Starting a thread in wrong forum (5 pts, 10 days) Contact details posted in forum (5 pts, 10 days) Quoting posts when not necessary (5 pts, 10 days) Starting duplicate threads (5 pts, 10 days) Insulted Other Member(s) (15 pts, 30 days) Inappropriate Language (15 pts, 30 days) Posting competitor site info (15 pts, 30 days) Spammed Advertisements (30 pts, 30 days) Soliciting Friendship (30 pts, 30 days) Sexually Offensive Post (50 pts, never) Please let us know if there are any questions. We look forward to not using this system much!
