    Hello all,

    After feedback received from the members of MS, we have implemented a new system involving rule breaking. There are very few rules in place here but there does need to be a few to keep things running smoothly. As you all should know the number one rule here is to not offend other members, number two is watch your language. There is a censorship system in place - we understand things get frustrating and swearing happens (especially this year!) but as a family friendly forum we ask that you do not attempt to avoid the censorship system and keep swearing to a minimum. Spamming is also obviously not allowed and discrimination of any sort is forbidden.
    There is a points system now in place. Once you reach 10 points you will automatically be banned for a month. If this continues to happen you may be banned for life. Points expire 3 months from the day you receive them.

    The system is as follows:

    Inappropriate Language 2 points
    Bad behaviour 2 points
    Insulted Other Member(s) 5 points
    Spam 10 points
    Discrimination 10 points


    Hopefully we won't have to use this very often. If you have any questions or suggestions please let me know either in this thread or via PM.

    Does discrimination include horrid comments about Jake Mamos manbun?

    I just want to add that myself and the mod team's decision are final and there is no appeal.

    Any complaints about points accumulated will result in an automatic lifetime ban, or $100 fine.

    This fine may only be paid 3 times before it is tripled.

    This can be worked off as a volunteer at all Hunter stadium games including Jets.

    New category added : Taking conversation off topic - 1 point and will last 1 month. This is for extreme cases only and points will be applied after a warning in the thread.

    There have been some revisions to the infraction system.

    New categories as follows

    Inappropriate Language: 2 points
    Bad Behaviour: 2 points
    Insulted other members: 4 points
    Harassment: 4 points
    Spam: 10 points
    Discrimination: 10 points

    You start with 10 points. All infraction points will expire after 2 months and a ban that results from too many points will last for 1 month. Do not try to create another account as it will be banned.

    Thanks everyone for doing really well with this system. Any questions or comments please post below or PM myself or rhugh89

    Can I suggest any alternative accounts result in their main account being banned for an additional 2 months?

    That is a good idea and will be judged on a case by case basis
