    Default Forum Rules: Questions and Answers

    A new and improved Great American Guide has been posted! Please take some time to review the new rules. You will see that the civility rules have relaxed a bit. This is by no means an invitation to turn this place into a flame fest. That being said, we hope with the relaxed rules, we will see more spirited, lively debate.

    Take special notice of the new Reporting System and levels of Infraction. We will begin utilizing the new system immediately.

    If you have any questions about the Rules, please feel free to ask them here.

    There is to be no peanuts or off-topic posting in this thread.

    As the disciplinary points system is now well defined, where can I find that information about me? Not that I make it a point to go here often, I would just like to know if this is available in my user profile to see exactly what has transpired over time. Some of us have been here a while and our memories are short.

    That is a really good question. Let me work on that and I will get back to you.

    Is that distinction in place already, or is it a change that is in the works?

    Yes, the system is already in place. People placed on a TO right now on the old system may still have "banned" in their title, but any new time outs issued will reflect the new system.

    Billy_Bob has been kind enough to let me use his account to place an Infracton on so that he could see where it can be found.

    To see your own Infractions (if any), click on your Profile and it should be readily visible. If ever in doubt, you can also PM a Mod and we can look for you as well.

    Thank you Billy_Bob for the question and helping me find the answer.

    IF you have no infractions the 'tab' is not visible. (i checked after you deleted the infraction). To find it simply click on 'My Profile' when the new screen opens you will see the infractions tab.

    If you click on the 'infractions' tab it will display your current disciplinary points and all infractions including the moderator who gave it allowing you to contact the person with whom you need to direct your responses to.

    Your previous infractions, which I believe were from me, were expunged. Consider it a fresh start.

    Thank you for the visual and walk-thru. That will be helpful to many.

    And yes, good to note for everyone else...all infractions prior to this new system roll out were wiped clean.

    Ah, I saw someone who was posting earlier today and is now listed as banned and was wondering if it was a ban or a timeout.

    There are only 4 people on a TO right now. Thank you for bringing that up. I went in and changed those 4 people to reflect the Time Out status. I don't want to name names, but if you look up the person you saw earlier, their title will reflect correctly now if they are banned or on a Time Out.

    Going forward, the system will automatically display the correct status for new banned or timed out accounts.

    Relaxing the rules has resulted in 4 TOs already?

    I'm a little nervous about this. I'll be honest.

    Zero infractions have been issued since the new Rules roll out. We have received a half dozen reports so far - all of which were ruled no foul.

    The Time Outs I mentioned were people who were on a Time Out for prior issues, and out of those 4, the Mods have just agreed to lift 3 of those Time Outs. That will be happening shortly...

    We really don't want to be a hammer here. I promise. We are trying to be fair to all, yet maintain an enjoyable place for everyone, while protecting Sean's name.
