Ahh - I'd like my warning meter removed. It's ridiculous to have it there when I have 0% on it anyway.

I think that IPB didn't really think that part through well enough. Considering members don't see each others warning levels, I find it dumb that the space the warning meter takes up is still there. So even if a post is particularly short, the whole thing takes up more space because of the user column on the left. All of that wasted space adds up :/

It's either empty space, or space with more info to ignore. The space itself will always be there. ;)

Please contact us privately so no one else has to see the dirty laundry.

But the thing is that I contacted the person that warned me. And an admin too. They never replied back. (Maybe because I was using Safari then, and they got blank messages?)

Like they did over my question over the subscription's money order.

Don't get me wrong, but there was a time when a mod would reply to us in a zip.

This is a little off topic, but I thought it might help with the space issue. I was annoyed at having to scroll forever to read a bunch of one line replies. So, I ask for help and got a solution to this issue, at least for me. So, if you use Firefox and Stylish, you may find this style interesting. It hides all user details until you hover your mouse pointing under the user's name. Then it displays that users Info only.

It's made public under my user name, but I didn't really do anything in the making of it. That part is explained on the page. I love it! I mean it makes reading Neowin a LOT faster. And NO it does not block ads.

No offense to the developers (of the site and themes), as I know you can't please everyone. Just thought I'd post since you all was talking about the space.

I have a feeling this could be adapted to use with Opera too.. so feel free to do so. It's just a few lines of code. Enjoy!

I hate to be a moaner here, but I think one of my warnings should be taken down by now. Is it possible to see when I got the warnings if you keep records of them?

Everything is fine. You're not due for one, yet. I checked the logs. For more specific info such as dates, you'll have to PM me.

Maybe BUT your signature is also in your post. So when you have a large signature (the max you can have) and you make a short post, you'll still end up having a lot of white space on the left because it has to fill your post. ;)

From my understanding that it still shows when there 0% because people kept pm'ing staff to see what their % was so the coderators made a quick hack.

No, IPB by default shows whatever level it is, 0 -100, when the meter is activated for member view.

How does the automatic warn remove system work? Does it go by the date of the warn that you received or does it go by your latest warn? Im just wondering since i think in a couple months or so some of my old warnings will go away however i dont know if my new warn is going to reset the time

New warns do reset the time, it goes by the latest warn. No point in us warning you only for you to receive a reduction the next day.

When you get an automatic warn reduction, it will only remove one warn every 6 months. It doesn't matter if you get warned 3 times in one day, 6 months down the line, only 1 of those 3 warns will be removed every 6 months.
