    vixen101485 as a person who is proud of her lineage of freedom fighters going back to the 1600's I find the word "heathen" offensive. It is a slur against a type of people and is usually used by people who think they are superior against a group of people whom they feel are inferior. .

    SPAMmed advertsisments
    Insult other members/staff
    Signature Rule Violation(s)
    Use Inappropriate Language
    Other inapporpiate behavior

    Users will be given a point for each infraction related to a specific post, will receive notification of the infraction being given.. If a user receives 5 infractions, he/she will be temporarily suspended and unable to post.

    Again, this syetm is currently in its initial testing and refining phase. If you have any questions, please email me directly.

    Thank you.
    I'm fairly new to the boards. Has this been an issue? If not, why the system?

    Will the points only visible to staff and not members? If visible to everyone....couldn't this be a problem?

    I don't think you want to go there....reputation systems are recipes for disaster. They are rarely helpful and often cause more problems than they potentially solve.

    TiggerRPH is right, reputation points might not be a good idea... you really don't want to be handed a bunch of red (-) or black beads when green (+) ones are the ones you desire - hehe

    ... but I know that mod you can really inflate someone's ego real fast. I was on a board where that was used over a year ago and one of the regulars made a thread, where if you posted, you would get green beads (they call them "beads" there)...

    good luck with the Infraction Mod, Lou

    (hmmm... I think there may be a word censor mod for vBulletin... I'll check on it if you're interested)
    Oooo ... here be dragons! Please visit them.

    We should try the rep system and see how it works. Some boards don't work well, but DWT might. Let's see.

    Sledge the rep system does not work even in a well run site like this one. I have seen several sites turn into rep wars with people using rep to flame people, insult ideas and worst is rep begging. It would be like adding two new forums to this site, personally I rather see the mods here working on other things than babysitting rep. Hugs Lou for not having rep.

    We already have a word censor in place here at DWT.

    Even with that in place, due to the family nature of our boards and the membership ranging from tweens to adults, we request that people refrain from using language and/or beahvior not suitable to a family site.

    In otherwords, posting something that reads **** may get you an infraction as easily as more blatent offenses.

    As far as the Reputation system is concerned, you need not discuss it here, it is not being implemented here at DWT.

    Thank you for assistance and compliance regarding this new system.

    I think you all will find that the majority of the members here will not accumulate infractions at all.

    Have a wonderful day.
