    New Feature: AutoSmite™

    Those who obey the rules can disregard this thread if they want.

    Like at AoS, this site now has a new-and-improved AutoSmite™ System, now with AutoBan™!

    Mods and admins can smite users for a particular out-of-line post. The offending user will receive a message informing them which post it was, which rule they violated, and how many points (demerits) they got for it. Points stick with you a long time, and as you reach certain point levels you'll automatically be banned for a certain period of time.


    We can also assign "warnings" using the same system, but warnings don't actually give you any points.

    Mods and admins will be "in the loop" about smites and warnings given by other mods or admins, and they may even go on your permanent record!


    Here are the current settings:
    Points___Ban length
    2_______1 Day
    3_______3 Day
    4_______4 Days
    5_______5 Days
    6_______1 Week
    7_______2 Weeks
    8_______1 Month
    9_______3 Months
    10______6 Months
    11______1 Year
    These could change at any time, of course. And we can still ban the old fashioned way if we feel like it.

    You'd all better be on your best behavior because all of us admins and mods are just dying to try this out!

    Currently everyone is at zero.

    You will get a PM if you get an infraction.

    I wonder how many days I can stay at zero?



    Maybe there should be a contest.

    I only have 2 infraction points but I received a one day ban, was that ban a manual ban? and if so will I still get auto-banned for another day if I get a third infraction point?

    You need to be a registered plus member. You've already met the number of post requirements. The other requirement is to wait 14 days after your registration date. November 23rd at 0541, whatever timezone you picked, you should be able to private message.
    grace & peace

    That explain why chat box, PM's and post in profile does not work. Hardly anything on this site, but posting works.
