Members should feel free to express their opinions but without abusing other members, is that so hard to understand? There are plenty of forums that encourage flame-bait, we don't.


No, it isn't hard to understand. I just feel that saying "feel free to exspress your opinions", and then saying "you can't say that" when someone posts something racist or sexist etc negates the point of saying "feel free to express yourself".

Myself, I wouldn't post anything rascist or sexist or whatever (intentionally), and am just asking the questions because I like nit picking. :D

We want members to share their opinions (and to feel comfortable doing so) but not to go so far as to express or promote hatred.

I was issued my last warning one year ago, and I STILL have a warning level. I was denied changing my nick because of the warning level. I also didnt renew my subscription because they wouldnt let me change my nick.

You post that as if you're proud of it... you didn't need to specify what your warning level was at to convey the same point. You should be ashamed and not want to discuss it. If I had a warning I most certainly wouldn't be parading it around. Personally, I'm proud that I can behave maturely and get by without insulting other members or promoting prohibited material - I haven't had any warnings and I intend to keep it that way.

You are forgetting that Shof is a big hard man, his warnings are testament to that ;).

My level hasn't be lowered either and it has been passed 6 months. Which mod do I PM to get to lower it?

You know what, why do we even need to discuss warnings AT ALL?

My very first warning (or my second...I've been here for too long) was straight from an Admin, and wasn't even CALLED a warning. It was just a quick pm, saying that a note had been attached to my account. No talk of percentages, no e-penis at who has the smallest warning, no fear of 100% = ban.

Heck, it's been said countless times (and even said to me by staff members in pm) that 100% does not equal automatic ban.

Since they really mean nothing except little notes for staff members to read on an individual as a record of their behaviour and breaches of acceptable behaviour, there is no reason in the world for us to even need to KNOW of a warnings system.

Why not just move it back to being a staff-member only thing, and end all of this nonsense?

Brilliant idea, the warning system has caused more good than bad :yes:
