    B New Moderation Method for The PA

    All,

    After months of struggling with The PA, we have made some changes/additions to allow for more direct and automated moderation here using some of the built in features of our forum software.

    Specifically, we have enabled the Infraction System and here is how it will work:

    - Infractions are worth 1 point a piece.
    - They currently last for 10 days and after that they expire.
    - Accumulating 2 points at once kicks your profile into a restricted group and you stay that way until the oldest of your infractions expires.

    Example: You get an infraction on May 1st. This is worth one point and you will keep that one point until May 10th. On May 3rd you pick up a second infraction, also worth one point that will also last for 10 days, but the first one is 2 days old so when it expires 8 days after
    you pick up the second infraction, you will be restored to regular posting levels.

    The restriction is a reduction in permissions for The PA only and will reduce any effected member to read only status for the duration of the restriction. It will be automatically lifted by the system when time expires.

    The infractions still have to be handed out manually by the staff of BGO and you will receive a PM from the issuing staff member explaining the infraction when it is issued.

    If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask. I will be happy to explain as best I can.

    It was my understanding there would be no math.

    Can we vote on infractions? Make recommendations?

    Neo,

    While I know I have been a part of the problem, I want you to know I appreciate the effort to moderate such a difficult forum. We may not show it all the time, but your efforts are appreciated!

    That goes for all the staff here at BGO as well.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    Could we get a chart, like in Fantasy Football, to see the best way to score?

    Math AND reading. If that doesn't scare people off the board nothing will.

    I went back and checked my numbers from the last 10 years, and I never had less than 13 infractions in a year. Of course, if ES released my numbers, I'm sure they'd total much higher, but who cares what those a-holes think

    I have to say, its a nice experience posting here and I think the moderation methods are a factor in that.

    The best part, honestly, is that there has been a steady addition of people over the last two months.

    We've lost some... I don't like that ren and lanky have been posting less (although lanky seems to have decided to get it another shot over the last few days), but it is nice to see a couple new faces here and there.

    I come here for stimulating discussion and while that's not always the outcome having new people with new perspectives certainly adds to it.

    Agreed T. I'll add Henry to the list of people I wish would post more. Nice to see Lanky come back some too. And agree completely about Ren, wish she would come back, but understand why she won't.

    Absolutely. And I think we've all gotten a lot better (for the most part) at not letting disagreements get as wildly out of control as they did in the past. We seem to transition to the next topic a lot better than we did before. SS, be grateful you didn't see the blood baths we've had in here over the last few years.

    It was bad, and any one of us who can say he hasn't been embarassed by his past behavior in this forum is either full of ****, or they don't post. We've all had some regrets, just some (me) more than others.

    I have noticed an interesting tone change lately that I really like. I've noticed more and more that when a debate starts getting heated now, it doesn't devolve immediately into a slugfest. It's like we just agree and keep restating our points without going out of the way and trying to win the war. Granted this isn't always the case by any stretch, but overall it seems more peaceful.

    Was it something I said?

    All kidding aside, I really feel bad about Ren leaving. Regardless of how it came across in the PA, I really liked her. I just hated her politics, and I let it get the best of me a lot. She knew how to press my buttons bad. The only one of you chumps that ever truly succeeded at it
