1.1 [17-9-2015] Greetings everyone! So this forum went from about 40-50 posts a day to peak moments were we got 600-700 posts per day that we need to moderate. And every day we get 30 members extra into our forum. Now my job as forum admin is to keep this place a happy place where people can discuss Space Engineers, Medieval Engineers and other stuff whenever they can, however things can sadly only be fun if we have a set of rules which can be found here. WPS (Warning Point System) is a build-in mechanism inside our forum software. Our moderators don't normally flat-out ban people because of bad behavior but instead we give them warnings, these warning points are counting upwards on the account of people who received such a warning. In the list below you find the trigger thresholds which activates a certain action on your profile once you have received the amount of warnings stated below. Warning Point Triggers 5 Points - 3 day ban. 10 points - 1 week ban. 15 points - 1 month ban. 20 points - Permanent ban. [Will be manually checked before applied] Points will expire after a certain amount of time depending on what you did, the default falloff time is 5 months with worse actions being punished by 6 to 12 months. Warning Point Distribution Warning points are given out by moderators depending on what you did. They will be able to hand out points between 1 and 3 with slight offenses being 1 and all-out ranting being punished with 3 points. The moderator is required to set a expiration date and a reason (which in turn sends out a private message). Custom warnings Moderators have the ability to set custom warnings in which they can fill in their own reason on why the user is receiving a warning, this helps the moderators to give warnings that fall beyond a post on the forum, for example if we get clear proof that a user is doxxing someone from behind our back or if someone is contacting a developer of Keen Software House by email with the subject of being unhappy that the person was banned, we can still approach the user and hand out a warning.
