I know you ment that as a joke. But I think it's one way to fine their members. This could probably help Neowin fiscal budget. And for those that does not want to pay, they can just wait 6 months. I think you just came up with a good suggestion there, snyper.

You donate/subscribe to keep Neowin alive not to "bribe" the staff to reduce ones' warning level.

Radish?

^^ well what if it wasn't a bribe. say someone had slipped up once, and payed to reduce their warning... but it got more and more if they offended again? and after a couple times they couldn't pay it off. that would be good business. =D

I was just wondering - how can a moderator find out if a single account is a duplicate account apart from looking at identical birthdates, identical name and the registered email.

Tracking is usually easy. I used to do it for a living when I worked for an interactive web site. (95% get caught quickly, the other 5% are a nightmare)

While it is possible to maintain duplicate accounts and never get traced back, it's pretty hard to keep it up for long periods of time. At some point the duplicate does something to link themselves back to the original account. I have to say, it was very interesting to see who was linked to who. I could write a book on the subject.

Bribing the staff is so wrong if you did wrong you should have the punishment and learn from your mistakes.

Warnings do not exist on Neowin as a money making tool. We use it as a measure to try and encourage users to put their behaviour back on track. Charging to have warnings reduced goes against what they exist for. Having it on your account for 6 months gives you a nice reminder not to slip up again.

Just got my first ever warning. 6 months seems like a very long time, would you consider reducing that to 3-4 months or thereabouts?

In my situation, that's a pretty good joke and I'll even consider this a birthday present.
