    And that will be enough of that discussion here thank you raaaid. It's not the right place for it. If you have an issue with the way another site is run you should take it up in private with that site's administrators, not in public on this forum.

I've no idea what the threshold levels or points expiry periods are over there so can't comment on the likely period of the suspension.
    Sounds like a fun little mini-game to play while waiting for the patch. I wonder if the points need to be ratified by a second party or if there is a cooling off period for the more hasty clicks.

    No and no. It the same software as here. Admins set the expiry period and number of points for each sort of breach of the rules and the trigger levels for bans of various lengths. Moderators "log" breaches by clicking a button and selecting from a list the type of breach. The rest is automatic.

    I see. So an individual moderator's action is not moderated so to speak. I'd wondered about that, as the various levels of action and reaction gave things a rather whimsical aspect at times.

    Of course just the same as here, the forum allows for moderators to have direct banning rights without having to bother with the "infraction points" function at all. Whether they have those rights or not is up to the 1C administrators. We certainly have them here.
