Infraction Listings

    I think it might be a good idea to have a topic where every type of infraction is listed and explained, and then have examples of the common types of posts that are associated with that type of infraction. You can then link to that topic everytime somebody receives an infraction. It will save the mods a lot of time explaining to every member what they did wrong, prevent duplicated comments in "why did I get an infraction posts", and will free up this forum for suggestions and feedback.

    What you all think?

    All it would take is one topic to be created, a mere 15 minutes of work, while most mods are busy explaining the problem to each member. Any infraction threads can be closed on the spot once they are seen, just because a thread is created doesn't mean it has to be answered. It can be made against the rules as forumsolutions stated in another thread, and can be an infraction violation in itself.

    Members don't look for similar threads in the same category where they are 2 posts below theirs, why would they search for an answer they don't think is found.

    That link is a good start, but it isn't given to users, nor does it explain the problem.

    Yeah, the idiots are doing it now, creating more YAITs to take up server space and bore the rest of us.

    I liken all those who create YART and YAIT threads as whiny little kids who want some adult to wipe their nose and tell them that all is well.

    If no one will read the FAQs, what makes you think they will read the infraction rules?

    The problem is that most of them want explainations, and they are too lazy to look for them, so you have to place it right in front of their face so they can see it. The source will be more for those that have commited infractions than as a resource for the rules, but is a source for both.

    When you get an infraction, it's pretty clear what it's for.
