    So that I'll have less PM's & to answer what will be a possible question here,I thought I'd explain why those members who have been warned now have higher warning percentages.

    Warnings now go up 20%, instead of 10%.

    This is to combat the bad behaviour of members here so that we're a better community. Those who were at anything higher than 50% will of course be at 100% now, though there will be furthur discussion amongst staff whether they'll be banned now or not.

    So wait; Your warns increase with 20% and you get banned at 50%, so 3 warns -> ban ?

    Nice, this will teach members to behave, since they have only 5 chances instead of 10 before reaching 100%.

    Warnings still go up to 100%, just in increments of 20. So it's actually 5 warnings.

    Erm, well, I don't know if we'll do that. That problem sort of snuck up on us. That needs to be discussed in further detail, by the staff.

    wat

    Ontopic: Good idea, now people like Hatsu will get banned more quickly [​IMG] This'll make people think a couple of times more before they post something [​IMG]

    @Ace: Do it, it's only fair for the other guys who get 20% warns.

    Middle of the ocean.
    Name a person who spams like Hatsu or is like Hatsu that isn't Hatsu.
    Do we really have that many people who get so many warns? [​IMG]

    Not really, depending on what's been done you could be gone from just one warn.

    Think of the five warns are being for the user repeatedly causing small rule breaks.
