Infraction Cards!

Semi-transparency!

"This change is made to make moderation more transparent and eliminate the ongoing questions of what's appropriate and what is not."

Only when the other half of the coin is visible can anything be understood!

With the same technology it should be a simple hop, skip, and a jump to institute a similar system to shine the light on the specific nature and extent of the complaints reported to moderators. Shouldn't it be known who the complainers are? Who complains the most-least? What is the ratio of valid vs. invalid complaints made by individuals? The time and effort moderators expend addressing individual complainers? Wouldn't this information all but eliminate the specter of "anonymous complaints" as the basis for issuing infractions? Shouldn't forum membership be aware when complainers and moderators are of like minds regarding an issue, position, or persuasion?

Surely this information is of at least equal value as the publication of offender information!

I'll leave it up to others to come up with an appropriate name for this type of information. Thanks and good luck!

Interesting..........and thanks for your insight.

I think we need to take one step at a time. At the moment, despite some assurances, we still don't have the capability to see the infractions for each member. We're still working on that.

As far as a method to determine the "complainers" and the ratio of complaints to infractions, that's a bit out of the capability of the software.

Sure..........it could be done manually..........a bit more work than I'd like to assume.

I'm not quite sure of the benefit of that knowledge, however. If the ratio of infractions to complaints from a specific member becomes close to zero, we'll ask that member to stop the complaints because they are generally unfounded and he/she needs to develop a thicker skin.

Be assured, this situation is fairly rare. Most complaints are well founded regarding violations of the TOU and we act accordingly.


Edited: The warnings and infractions for each member are now visible beneath the post count. The first number represents the number of active warnings..........the second number is the number of active infractions. The final number is the total accumulated active points. A member is allowed four points.........the system performs an automatic ban at five points.

it seems like he's complaining about 'complaining'. We should file a complaint.

(sniff) I deplore those boors who can't keep their posts tasteful and positive. They should be permanently banned for their first offense.

For mods we should start a system where we get credit when we get rid of people. Maybe something like this!

I'm not pleased about my infraction showing in my avatar. I never insulted the person as claimed, and was only defending a friend. I don't want to come off as a troublemaker every time I post.

Sorry to raise a stink.

Re-read my infraction Brian, where did I insult the guy? Anyone else can read it too.

Was it the you don't even have a Mercedes part? When does it go away?

Perhaps you can start a court of appeals thread on the shop forum. That would be interesting... Can't say I'd want to be a moderator involved with it, though.

I see RichC and Forced Induction pleading their case in open forum often. Well, maybe not Forced. He seems to enjoy the occasional exile.

I'm old now..........I don't hear these pleas very well.........not very well at all...........the Vodka doesn't assist with that.
