The Infraction Point System - NEW INFRACTIONS 7/18/14

Discussion in 'Serebii.net Discussion' started by ellie, Aug 20, 2011.

  1. Those are called negative reputation marks. They don't actually accumulate into a ban; they're more so things that members can do to say "I feel your post could have been better; here's how" (although they're practically never used for that :/). Positive reputation is just the opposite.

    If you were infracted then it definitely was from a mod. Regular members can't send infractions. If you know it came from a non-staff member, The Imposter is correct in saying that was a negative reputation point.

    Nutter just gave a quote that explained who you should talk to.

    If your infractions were from a regular mod, talk to an smod or admin assigned to the same section. If your infractions were from an smod, talk to an admin. If your infractions were from an admin, talk to Joe.

    In my experience, I find the best person to talk about regarding anything related to moderation is Joe. I'd say just PM him and ask about it. It won't hurt anything, as long as you're civil and not outright nasty about it. It might take time for him to get back to you, but he will respond, and he's pretty reasonable with his decisions.

    actually i would say don't bother joe with needless things when he already has so much to do. especially because most people who want an infraction don't even understand why it was given, which is why i said talk to the person who gave it to you before anything else. you should follow the chain of command i posted in the initial post and only bother him if you already dealt with an admin. if everyone who complained about infractions went straight to him he'd never have time to get anything else done.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but on my Settings main page it lists my most recent infractions (I only have one infraction). Anyways, for the thread title it says "Permanent: Private" I understand what the "Private" part means but what does the Permanent part mean? Seems to me like it means that it will always be on your profile, but then I thought all infractions were always on your profile.

    All infractions remain on your profile, but the points they are worth can at times expire (the more minor ones). Your one is a perma one, i.e. the points for it remain.

    So for the minor infractions, the "Permanent" would be replaced by the expiration date, correct?

    It's possible, and I've done it once, or twice. In Those instances I was actually testing something out for a member of staff.

    As a Personal Recommendation, I'd really avoid doing that. If I had an issue, I'd just PM a member of staff above them.

    since your question wasnt really answered adequately i will. if you think someone is breaking the rules you should report it to someone higher than them. if they are a normal mod tell a smod, smod tell an admin, admin tell serebii. but make sure it's actually a serious report and not something frivolous.

    Who do we report to if Serebii breaks the rules? :p

    Seeing as he's the webmaster, I don't think he can be reported. If he breaks the rules, then I guess we just have to deal with it. But I highly doubt he would ever do that.

    if serebii breaks the rules you can talk to him or i guess an admin about it, but it's his site so he can do what he wants

    I was looking at the list of infractions just now and I was curious about one thing. Why does the pornography infraction never expire? I know it's a serious offense and it should be punished harshly, but wouldn't it make more sense for the expiry to be 5 years or something, instead of permanent? Just wondering.

    As far as I know, Joe almost never breaks the rules, unless there's a really good reason for it (like if the situation would be worse without it). But even then, it's rare. And it's pretty much the same for the rest of the staff. They usually won't break the rules without good cause.

    No, it should never expire. The reason it was put in place is because there was a rash of NSFW material in several sections of the site in the past (if memory serves me correctly, it was around 2001 or 2002, before we all had to re-register on the site). Rather than risk that again, it's best to just keep that rule in place and keep the infraction for it where it is.
