That's a poor excuse... be more careful what you type. Its very simple. I have never sworn in front of my mom, at work I swear like a sailor... its very easy to control.

IMHO, if there is a limit in the warning box preventing a proper explanation of the infraction then a PM containing an explanation should accompany a warning.

I was given a 1.3 Violation on 4/9/15… still have no inkling why. Nevertheless it states that it is a lvl 2. 20 percent warning that expires on 10/6/2015 which is a six month warning before it terminates. My question is that it states under the new Warning and Ban guidelines that it should expire in 3 months from the original warning. Will these timelines be adjusted on user accounts? I’m trying to be cautious what I say here so I do not get any additional warnings added on, nonetheless I am a bit curious and perplexed by these new rules and how they affect older warnings.

Allright. (that puts things into a new(ish) perspective - for me at least.)

With that newly gained perspective, I agree, it will be easy to control from now on.

Again, if you ever have questions about the warnings, you can PM a mod. But your wanring log generally contains what you need to know. if you didnt notice it right away, and you forgot... PM a mod. If you want to see the text of your deleted message... PM me.

The warning log should contain all you need, if it doesnt, PM a mod.

I agree... mostly. I have no problem controlling myself (and I come from the region where profanity is very much a cultural thing lol), but by definition (not an linguist though!), vulgar is anything from damn to f-word. Yet I see a great difference between such words. So, are there going to be bans for anything that's on the lowest end of that spectrum and in the real word frowned upon only in kindergarten?

Ask. Its simple if you are unsure if its unacceptable, just ask. I think damn will slide... its mostly asking for common sense.

I am curious to know how posts like THIS will be handled in the future when the initial post is appropriate but the the content of the video is not.

I am not sure whether I understood correctly how those points accumulate, so just to clarify:

A user replies to a post from Wags about a new FC3 module, and I tell him about how much better the cockpit of the A-10C is. That's kinda off-topic of course, so I get 10%

Five days later someone posts about a new Star Citizen Ship (considered news) in the appropriate thread and I respond With something like: "Yeah, new update!" (gets me 30% because not news)

So I created two posts that are... not THAT severe IMO, and I get banned for two weeks? To me that sounds pretty harsh, at least on first glance.


Oh, and this point:
Quote:
Product feedback that is abusive, insulting or condescending
I hope that you guys aren't easily insulted or feel condescended to. Otherwise it will be really hard to judge whether to post any negative points.

Anyway, nice to see some more concrete rules, I guess that makes some things easier for all of us.
Until now I was - in most cases at least - pretty happy with how moderation in these forums worked. I hope you won't change too much.
