All Warnings and their Consequences

Question

It has come to the attention of the auth team that there is nothing that lets users know the amount of warning points they can receive for breaking a rule, and the amount of time that the point remains in effect. That is why we have decided to make a visible list of each of these infractions visible to the user base.

Listed below are the various warnings that can be given for rule infractions, the amount of points that accompany them, the length that the point stays active, and a brief generic explanation that details the basics of why the warning was issued. Moderators do NOT alter these parameters upon issuing a warning, and they will adhere to how they are listed below.

 

Etiquette

  • Non-English Discussion - 0 Points
 

When a user begins talking in a language other than English. Reborn is an English-based community so it is asked that English be spoken to ensure everyone understands what is being said.

  • Needless Double-Posting - 0 Points
 

When a user makes two posts on the forums in succession without waiting 24 hours or for another member to post. Double posts are ok if there is a significant update to the topic to be made. Any small updates or changes should just be edited to the last post.

  • Unnecessary Posting - 0 Points
 

When a user makes a post on the forums that contributes nothing to the current topic of discussion.

  • Off-topic Posting - 0 Points
 

When a user makes a post on the forums that is completely irrelevant to the purpose of the topic’s discussion.

  • Unnecessary Necro/Bump - 0 Points
 

When a user revives a “dead thread” that has had no relevant posts for 2+ months.

  • Public Call-out - 0 Points
 

While the moderators are glad when users know the rules, please do not publicly chastise or lecture other users about the rules. Instead use the “Report” button at the bottom right of their post, or PM one of the Staff on the server or forum.

  • Spoilers! - 0 Points
 

Upon the release of a new episode of Pokemon Reborn or Pokemon Rejuvenation there will be about a month’s time period where we ask that you do not spoil content for other users. If your topic contains spoilers please tag it with [spoilers] in the beginning of the title. When talking about it on the server, there will be a room set up specifically to discuss the new installments.

  • Posting in Wrong Section - 0 Points
 

If a user’s thread is created in a section that is not the most fitting for it, it will be moved to the correct location and the Staff member will explain why it fits better elsewhere.

  • Chat Flooding - 0 Points
Spoiler

Flooding is considered 15 or more consecutive lines of text in a server chat. Video and image previews and paragraphs are counted as a single line.

Okay, we've updated the associated punishments. Here's the new list. These warnings only apply when the warnings are active (i.e. once your warning point expires you'll be able to request clubs again. 

 

   1WP: The user may no longer request clubs

    3WP: The user receives a week long moderator approval on forums, and a week long mute on discord

    5WP: The user is unverified on discord and loses ownership of any clubs they have

    7WP: The user is muted and on moderator approval until their point threshold reaches 0

    10 Lifetime WP: The user is banned from the community
