There has been a revision added to the report function. Mods can use it for reporting users who're causing porblems in their moderated section. Users who intentionally de-raile, spam or posts tons of images just to fill the thread fall in this category. This does not mean any users does this can be reported.
No, only proven users who're a problem in various other sections and who after being told to stop via PM, Official warning still don't stop fall into this category. Fatty, Hab etc. are prime examples.
Since we don't have an infraction for off topic posting or de-railment, you mods can't ban. I am not adding one any time soon since it makes things hard to control, plus it opens door for abuse.
Since the start we have tired to maintain a balance of lulz and contributions but it seems some users think that this whole forums is just a place to troll and take a stinky dump. I can't let this happen.
You see a user doing this in serious sections, ( exclude SG,HB and Flesh Art ) you just report him and in your report you must add a review.
User reported: Fatty
Reason: De-railing, Spam.
Fatty has been posting images and memes and posting garbage threads in this section. I pm'ed him and asked him to stop but he didn't listen and he keeps on doing this throughout the forums. After removing his posts, he still posts again. I request this user be handled.
^Something like this, then the mods can add their feedback and if we all agree, the user in question will be put on lockdown. We will use various methods but in the end he will be stopped from using Totse.info features until he learns his lessons.
We don't permanently ban users ( In the past we did ban user, Spectral and DaGuru were one of them but then policy was changed and we decided to try other methods, oh and we do BAN users who break the rules, I added this because DaGuru thought I was hiding things, which I wasn't) but that could change if we're dealing with someone who doesn't cooperate no matter what.
You're allowed to put your own guidelines in your sections. In the end it's the local mod call to report the users or not.
