Warning System

I think we should bring back the warning system, except revamp it a little.

I'm not quite sure this is possible, but I think each warning should warrant a new type of punishment, and after each warn the duration increases. Something like this:

10%-1 day suspension, 20 day removal, no posting in "Moderator Applications"
20%-1 day suspension, 30 day removal.
30%-2 day suspension, 45 day removal
40%-3 day suspension, 60 day removal, no posting in Off-Topic Discussions.
50%-4 day suspension, 70 day removal.
60%-5 day suspension, 75 day removal
70%-5 day suspension, 85 day removal.
80%-6 day suspension, 90 day removal, no posting in light chit-chat or mindless games
90%-one week suspension, 110 day removal.
100%-Banned from the forum.

Just an idea. Feedback is appreciated.

So we give them 10% and they can't post in the Moderator Applications on top of the other stuff. What if the person didn't get in trouble in the Moderator Applications and doesn't even post there to begin with?

Just an idea. But a person who gets warned in the first place, unless for a completely stupid reason, is a troublemaker and shouldn't be allowed to apply.
That was my thinking, and I'm not even sure if this is possible.

I've seen it on a different forum, but I'm not sure if it's possible here.

You said 'Post' in the topic starter and 'Apply' in your message above. Those are two different things. So why would a 10% person care about not posting in the Mod App section if they don't already. And why would a 10% person care about being able to Apply for Mod if they don't want.

I was allowed in the Mature Section before I was 18. But also we can't be sure that EVERY member is being truthful about their age.

Well technically, in order to apply, you need to post there. So why not stop the applications, and the possible spam in that section?

Yes but what I'm getting at is, what if this person is causing an issue NOT in Mod App's but.. lets say the Off-Topic section? Wouldn't it be pointless ban them from a place they don't even bother to go to in the first place?

Perhaps, but it could also be saving trouble.
Moderator Applications is a section that's to be taken pretty serious, in my opinion, and if the person is causing havoc in one section, then why not revoke his privleges from a section that shouldn't be taken lightly?

Regardless, it's just an idea. Because last time the warning system didn't work out, so I'm shooting ideas that could make it be taken more serious than it was.

Nelly, you need to text me, if you can.
that aside, your idea is a good idea, but so very many holes. What was the site that you saw this on before? I'd like to go and see what system they have, and that will tell me if it is possible with our current system.

No matter what, its always possible. Thats the glory of programming :)

Discussion has ceased, so i'm locking the topic to stop bot-spam.
