Make small talk? I'd rather be reading.

The mods have reworked the complaint policy described in point 4 of the Board Guidelines. The new policy reads as such:

Quote:
 
4. While generally, everyone here is a happy, friendly person, sometimes personalities can clash. If someone writes a post somewhere on the boards that you find offensive, please utilize the report button provided in each post. The mods will receive notification that a post has been flagged and will deliberate to determine what should be done. There is no need to PM the mods to further explain why you felt the post was offensive - you will have an opportunity to do that when you send in the report. Please note: The mods will no longer attempt to mediate disputes between members. In administering warnings, we will consider only posts that have been flagged and reported to us.

The warning system will work as follows: we operate on a “3 strikes, then banned” policy. Each warning will count as half of a strike, and as follows, 2 warnings will equal 1 strike. The mod team will have the discretion to decide whether to issue a warning or a written pre-warning as we determine is appropriate. The decision by the mod team will be final; complaining to us or about us may result in another warning. The duration of a warning (and by extension, a strike) will be determined by the mod team; however, the mod team will indicate an estimated duration when giving the warning. Please note, it will only be an estimate; both positive and negative behavior following the warning may be used as a mitigating factor in determining the actual duration. Should a member reach their third strike (and we really hope no one ever does!), the mod team will inform the member whether the banishment will be temporary or permanent. In either case, the mod team will provide their reasons for the ban, and in the event of a temporary ban, the mod team will give an estimate of how long the ban will last. Again, this will only be an estimate – positive and negative behavior will again be taken into account in determining the actual duration of the ban.

We know that at times tempers can flare, but we truly want to keep BookObsessed a fun and fun-loving place. It is our belief that the “3 strikes” policy we have developed will serve to keep the peace, but in order for it to work we need people to abide by it. It should be noted that all members, mods, and admins of this site are subject to this policy.


This policy will go into effect February 1, 2009. Because the Guidelines post is locked, we've opened this thread for questions and comments.

I just want to go on record as saying that I find Ri's post about reporting this post to be offensive. I also find Cheesy's laughing at the whole situation to be uncalled for and superficial. Can you help mediate this problem she and I are having?

*snicker*

Sorry Kiri but right now 18F would be a heat wave. It is all a manner of what you are used to. I could not take the weather they are having in Oz right now either
