New Forum Warning and Suspension of Posting Privileges Guidelines


Recommended Posts

  • ED Team
In an effort to be more transparent and consistent in how forum warnings and posting suspensions are issued, we are starting new guidelines today. We hope that this will remove any mystery on this subject. These new guidelines are a work-in-progress and we will tune them based member feedback and how they work in practice. Most of all, we want them to be fair, clear and accountable. When a warning is given, a note (including a quote of offending post when necessary) from a moderator will be made via the warning system. If you have not already, please read the Warning System FAQ here: [url]http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=144189[/url] For users with warnings that do not match the new guidelines, they can contact a moderator and we will adjust the warning level to match the new guidelines. Many users have had their posting privileges reinstated on our forums in the last two days. [B]Forum Warning Guidelines[/B] [B]Details:[/B] • Most warnings expire after 3 months. • Permanent removal of posting privileges are only given out by Eagle Dynamics staff. [B]Warning levels[/B] • Lvl 1. 10 percent (expires in 3 months) • Lvl 2. 20 percent (expires in 3 months) • Lvl 3. 30 percent (expires in 3 months) • Lvl 4. Permanent 40 percent • Lvl 5.
