Alteration to Warning system


Guest Digi

Recommended Posts

I know the warning system could really use an overhaul, but let's think baby steps here :P

I'd like to see a small expansion to the current waning system that allows administrators and moderators to post a comment to a user's "rap sheet" that doesn't cause the warning to increase/decrease in any way. Mainly to track minor offenses or "first warning" type things. At IPSBeyond we have to have a separate forum specifically for this purpose, though not used often :P This would remove that need for our site and, probably, the many others that have these extra forums as well :)

Blame this guy for making me think of posting this

Another idea would be auto-punishment. Settings in the ACP would say when warning level reaches 20% do nothing, when warning level reaches 40% disable posting ability for 15 days, and so on and so forth - where you can set what each warning level does, on boards with a predetermined set this would be a lot easier.

Not sure if this is what you meant but: The ability to do the warning screen without touching warning level would be awesome.

Also... Limiting how many times a moderator can warn a member... If there isn't a way to do this already, you should be able to disable this.

No offense but that would be pointless when you can do that on the same screen when adjusting the warning... You can't put moderation on auto-pilot. Every situation is different.

Thanks what I mean :)

You can set all of these per mod type, per day, in the warn system settings. Realistically, setting max warn per day to something like 99 would seem "disabled" enough in my eyes. If you've got a member that bad....you've got issues :P

I don't find the warn panel as useful as it could be.

The notes are handy, but as mentioned in the OP it could be expanded a bit more. That way you don't have to create topics about members in a moderator forum.

Moderator preview is good and we use it instead of banning. Ban hasn't been useful for us. By that time we have to IP ban by an admin. Plus once you ban a member, you can no longer keep track of IP addresses. At least with mod preview you can log their IP addresses from new posts they make.

The message to the warned members could using a significant upgrade. It would be nice if there was a way to merge the warn message part of the Warn Panel with a central Moderator Report Center for all moderators. Feedback on Moderator Report Center (Here)

I just noticed there was a way to add "notes" in the ACP while editing a user's profile settings. I haven't tested further, but it appears that this functions almost exactly as I've asked, only restricted to admin use via acp.

I think a notes kind of thing for IP.Board would be cool :)
i.e. inform other staff of any encounters staff have had in the past (but wasn't enough to warn, but will if done again is enough to warn).

It'd save some hassle :P
