You are entitled to your opinion, as well as I am entitled to mine
If you don't like it, nobody is forcing you to come here, the system was implemented for a number of reasons. The warning system was mainly implemented to make out job easier, in being able to consistently apply the forum rules to everyone in the same manner. Also to see a users history with the clock of a button without needing to dig through numerous posts explaining what a user has done and what action was taken against them. In the past people have complained about inconsistence, and this is a way to iron those inconsistencies out by having a set scheme that each mod follows in the way they perform their job. All users read, or should have read, the terms and conditions of the site when they joined, it makes sense that they should then abide by those rules, some users choose not to, and they must have steps taken against them to maintain the standards we enjoy in the forums.
yea but not the way these guys police it,there MAD and they over do it.just my 3 cents
It may not be known to you but as mods we regularly get complaints from some of the longer term forum users that we are not doing enough to maintain the high standards of posts in these forums and are letting too many idiots ruin the forums for everyone else. So the above opinion I can not possibly agree with, and I will continue to take an agressive stance against some of the less desirable posters on the forums.
Overall you are part of a very small minority that seem to think we are too harsh in out application of the moderation policy, and whilst ever we have a majority of people asking us to police the forums idiots more heavily, we will continue to do so.
Also in the future if you wish to discuss the moderation policy of the forums, please PM or email a moderator, forum director or an admin, do not post it in public on the forums unless you wsih to attract the use of the warning system upon yourself.
