    Ozhonda Infractions System

    EDIT: The infraction points / expiration has changed effective Sunday 2 August 2009. See below!


    Hi all,

    Just letting you know that over the past few weeks we have implemented the Ozhonda infractions system which will affect the way users get banned effective immediately. More on this below.

    1. What is it?
    It is a system put in place to help moderators make more objective and consistent decissions based on user breaches of the Terms & Conditions and general forum behaviour. It assigns weighted points to different breaches and when a user reaches a pre-determined amount of points he/she will receive an automatic ban based on the number of infraction points he/she has accumulated.

    The length of the ban depends on the number of points accumulated.

    2. Who uses it?
    All moderators will have the ability to give infractions to users. Users will get a PM and be able to see how many points they have via their User Control Panel (UserCP).

    3. How does it work?
    If a user breaches one of the T&C or behaves unacceptably, a moderator will give the user an infraction for that particular post/offence. The user then gets a PM which includes some comments from the moderator and their infractions are listed in their UserCP along with the points value. A sample screenshot of it can be found here.

    4. How many points for breaking the rules and how are the points weighted?
    The infractions system is setup as follows. Note that points will expire after a predetermined time as per the screenshot below. You basically need 10 points before you can get banned as per the lower table.

    As of 2 August 2009 you can also get an automatic ban after receiving 'x' infractions (as opposed to just infraction points) so take note.

    5. Can I still be banned instantly?
    Yes. In very serious cases circumstances Super Moderators may issue an instant ban to a user if required. For example trolls/compulsive spammers bombarding the site.

    Well, you might have the right to your own opinion, but unfortunately this site is "Their house". and like your folks place, if you don't wanna play by their rules, that's fine...you have to get out.

    Maybe not entirely fair, but they're sstill within their rights to control this site in any way they see fit.

    Far from a power kick - the idea is to make moderator decisions more consistent. That way it is more difficult for X moderator to be harsher than another moderator or have a particular bias against certain individuals. So it works in the favour of the membership (eg - if you have multiple user accounts that is 6 points lost out of 20. Easy. In the past it could be dealt with differently depending on which moderator picked up the issue ranging from a warning to an instant ban).

    We also haven't changed what people can and can't say on this site since August 2005 (the terms and conditions regarding content were last updated then). So your gripe about freedom of speech sounds like sour grapes rather than constructive feedback. Things have not changed regarding posting content since 2005.

    There is also no such thing as a right to free speech in Australia - we are not in the USA. But thanks for your input. Your constant gripes about the moderating team are always enlightening.
