Exclamation Discussion on Moderation...how do you think it should be run?

I've been thinking on how to moderate users as far as when it gets to a serious situation that's getting close to being banned.

I think there needs to be a structure, something that everyone can understand and at least agree is fair.

I think each potential situation needs to be taken on a case-by-case example, depending on the severity of it, will determine the overall likely response. Instances such as spamming the boards (the kind where someone registers, and then immediately posts "increase your penis size") would result in immediate bannings, whereas something such as a personal conflict would definetly have to be taken with a different approach.

Would anyone like to comment on how they think warnings, timeouts, & banning should occur? This board is still young...so I think it's the best time to work this all out.

I'd appreciate some thoughtful discussion on this. Your opinion matters greatly to me, since you are the people that use this place on a day-to-day basis. It's for you. Thanks.

In seriousness it does depend on the severity.
I'd say for minor infractions, 3 warnings, then a temporary ban.
Things more serious, 2 or 3 warnings, then a ban.
Massive things would be on a case by case basis, like full ip/username bans.

Unless you have a way of making them unable to post things, then that could be implemented instead of a ban.

Situations like the DR thing on FH, I'd let em read it, and never let him post.. heehee. And then ban every other username he tries to make from those ips.

Just like a misdemeanor and felony in our court system, I think on the lines of severity each case would merit a classification.

Lessor offenses would be on post warnings, editing posts...and closure of threads (with explanation).

Major offenses would be automatic temp bans, long term bans...and permanant bans.

I agree with the folks that have posted already- some sort of graduated punishment. Like you said though, Mike - some things will get you zapped right away. "Being stupid in a no-stupid zone"

Along with what Rui posted, Id like to NOT see one sided moderation, for example..whereas Mods only delete one persons posts or reprimand one user.

Hmm...each case is different, and each one will have to be handled differently. If someone verbally abuses and assaults someone, then they of course deserve harsher punishment than someone that let themselves get a little "heated".

There may be many times where someone might get a warning, and someone else get temp-banned. I think it depends on the situation. BUT, these decisions will be made as fair and as balanced as they need to be. Thanks for the discussion!
