Default BC infractions

Why are bc infractions so polite?

Many of you may not know because you never received one but they address you with Dear.

Like this:
Dear dumb you've received an infraction . And it is worth 10 points never to expire.

The way it's worded it makes me feel like I won something and I want to accumulate more points and they will never be expired so nice of them.... I get similar feeling when I use American express or amazon customer service ...they are always super nice...and giving me free stuff.


I propose changing the tone to the following:

" you stupid little tard start acting like an adult _ we don't like trash in this website "


At least I would appreciate the honesty.

This is not mod action discussion.

I am not questioning anyone rather discussing a forum format....

Peeing in public and discussing the act of peeing in public are two different things.

Points are part of the infraction system of the VBulletin software we use for then forum.

You have your basic garden variety warnings - no points. It's like a teacher glaring at a kid in elementary school.

Then you have your infractions. Depending on the gravity of the whatever one did you get assigned "points". These points can expire after a customized time span or never.

A lot of forums use these points to set a auto ban trigger. If you've acquire X points within a particular timespan you incur the auto ban hammer. We didn;t set the trigger as we otherwise we will have no members left

When mods give an infraction (red card) as opposed to warnings (yellow card) they can modify the default span and points for that particular infraction. Hence you might end up with 9999 points. That means in admin code "Seriously dude? What were you thinking?"

I can understand the rationale for the point systen and autoban - works for forums with bunches of kids and where emo kids are also mods (removes mod bias to a certain extent) but that still doesn't prevent a vindictive mod to show multiple red cards to force a ban.

Anyway - the key to a well run forum is transparency to a certain extent. We've not been to good with at at times - trying to weigh not wanting to personally shaming someone with letting other members know why so and so suddenly got detention. It's not easy.

You guys should move to a VBulletin that has points members can actually use. Like virtual cash/vCash. Those are awesome.
