Default Infractions vs Warnings

First off - what a warning is: it's a logged communication that arrives in your PM box but is archived in two ways - once, in the database of infractions, and once as a thread in the Moderators and Admins private area.

An Infraction is exactly like a warning, but carried "infraction points" as well. These points expire after a period of time, but if you have 3 or more unexpired infraction points, the board imposes certain penalties.

The intent is that, if a board staff member needs to inform you that you have violated board rules, or that you're very close to being in violation of board rules, they use the infraction/warning system.

Note that either a warning or infraction is always linked to a specific post; no more than one such action can be attached to a given post, and it logs who issued it, when, and what was in it.

My instruction to the moderators is simple and direct: if it is close, warn. If it is clearly intentional and clearly over the line, infract. If in doubt, report.

Note that every warning and infraction is able to be referenced by each and every moderator and admin.

The statistics are not generally published - but I'll post the following:

In the last year (17 Jun 2013 to 17 Jun 2014),
There have been 53 total actions entered. Thats an average of one a week.
28 of those have been warnings.
4 infractions have been reversed. (One was wrong infraction category, one was reversal due to excessive penalty, two were rescinded after

25 infractions have been issued in the last year, overall.
5 infractions and 3 users have unexpired points.

2 user accounts have been locked by request - the account in this case has the email nulled out, and the password randomly set.

I've infracted 8 times in the last year, reversed 1.
I've issued 19 warnings in the last year.

The person most often interacted with got 3 warnings and 1 infraction in the last year. The infraction was for spammed adverts; the warnings include detrimental actions (blind links), insulting other members, and circumvention of the profanity filter.

The second most got 3 infractions; Insulting others, and two detrimental actions.

There have been two appeals of an infraction; one was commuted (the above mentioned excessive penalty), the other stood.

With an average daily postership of about 30 users, and average of over 100 discrete log-ins per day

in the last 24 hours, 241 users have logged activity.
in the last week, 516 users have logged activity.
In the last year, 3554 users have logged activity.

These numbers do not count spammers, who have been deleted, nor failed attempts to register by spammers.
