Tweaking of the Flamming rules.
The current infraction for Flamming will not be changed. A new one called "Minor Flamming" which will be worth 5 points, last for 10 days, but will not be stackable, is now created. Basically that means if you get two minor flame infractions in one day you will be banned for 10 days, instead of 20.
Also, two minor flame infractions will equal one major flame infraction in regaurds to the 3 strikes = perm ban. 6 minor flames = perm ban. 2 major flames + 2 minor flames = perm ban, 1 Major flame + 4 minor flames = perm ban, ect. This is to prevent continuous "minor flamming" of other members without fear of a perm ban.
In reguards to the above changes, if I see anyone complain about "that should be a major flame instead of a minor one" or vice versa, I will get rid of those changes and will go back to the way they were before this post.
There will not be any listed "guidelines" as for what constitutes a "minor" or "major" flame, that will be left upto the infracting mod and will be checked by me for fairness.
Lastly, I will change all auto-ban infractions to 5 day bannings, instead of the current 7.
All flames directed to any/all staff will be treated as a Major Flame and you will be banned for it no questions asked.
Please, I do not want any comments concerning anything in this post, thats what my PM box is for. I only want questions requarding these new rules (ie. a question to better understand something.) If you post in this thread and you are not asking a question, you will recieve an infraction.
