TBY Guides: The Wonderful World of Infraction
 
Given the recent problems with serial spamming and insane posters, I thought this was worth explaining for all those with infraction power.
Infractions are God's way of making the internet less annoying for us all. Here at TBY the following infraction rules currently apply:

1. Inappropriate language - 1 point. This doesn't mean normal swearing but is meant for someone who is just posting endless cuss words for the sake of it.

2. Signature violation - I point.

3. Trolling - I point

4. Insulted Other Members - 2 points

5. Spammed advertisements - 5 points

10 points are required before a person is banned via infractions. So if we have another spam attack and neither Rob or I are around, you guys know what to aim for with your infractions.

can more than one person infract a single post?

or does it have to be two "spam ad" posts that get infracted to get someone banned?

and does this mean that i was the one who banned the spammer who posted in multiple threads earlier today?
go me!

what's a signature violation?

and what difference does it make if you click the 'warning' box?

How do you infract someone? Do you click on the report post button?

you need to have made a ridiculous number of posts before you can.

1.) Not sure, it was one of the default violations.

2.) Warnings don't add points. So pretty much worthless.

I infracted Butt Savage twice last night, but I didn't really know what specific catagory his, err...pictorials would fall under, since there are currently no 'nudity' options when giving infractions.

I'm pretty sure its only one infraction of the same category for each post. so no, more than one person can't infract for the same thing on the same post. So a troll would have to be infracted on two differet posts.

Re: TBY Guides: The Wonderful World of Infraction
 
I think you can go to the user's profile and infract them again if necessary.

Attack them where they live. Nice.

Re: TBY Guides: The Wonderful World of Infraction
 
or couldn't you just infract them for something else, if they were clearly a spammer? like mark the same post as 'attacking another member' or something, so their infraction points are enough for a ban?

Yep, absolutely. The category doesn't have to apply to the offence if the person is clearly just spamming or trolling. You just want enough points to get them banned.

libertine and i infractioned that kaka person and they're not banned even though they've got 10 points now.
do they need more than 10?

ferris wheel junkie 02-20-2009 05:51 AM

Re: TBY Guides: The Wonderful World of Infraction
 
oh... actually they're showing up as "guest" now, rather than a member... i guess that means they're banned?

La Cienega 02-20-2009 05:56 AM

Re: TBY Guides: The Wonderful World of Infraction
 
I was going to ask the same thing, Ferris. I gave that kaka person 2 more infractions so they have 20 points now, and they still don't say banned?

Yeah, it stops them from posting until the points wear off.

I am more than half way to infraction rights. Y'all had better watch out. Although it has taken me two years to get this far.
