    Default A genuine benign question about moderation.

    Infractions use to expire. Now I notice they don't. I'm just curious if this is an official policy change or not considering how insanely easy it is to get an infraction around here.

    An official answer would be appreciated and thank you in advance.

    The first rule of moderation is you don't talk about moderation...

    If I wasn't a customer I wouldn't care enough to ask. The real question is do they care enough about their customers to give me an answer.

    I had a post removed on another game's forums for referring in passing to a different MMO. Note that on that game's forums, the devs sometimes refer to other games. Because you can't talk about games, and how they work, and what policies are good or bad, without talking about other games.

    But they have a policy against such things, which is enforced only against players.

    Sort of makes me happy to come back to these forums.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    Sorry, I was reading this thread and I'm still slightly confused by this answer. It seems to indicate that the policy has changed, and now infractions will never go away. I have not received one myself, but I have witnessed several infractions that were given to those whom, in my humble opinion, did nothing to deserve them. For an infraction to never expire would indicate that there is no forgiveness for players who are still learning, or who have changed for the better since that infraction. This makes a "permanent infraction" policy seem... well, to be blunt, rather horrible. May I please request a bit more clarification?

    Where do you look to find out how many infractions your account has?

    Quick question from the Dark Side!!!

    Click on "My Profile" at the top right, then look for the Infractions tab next to "About Me" and "Friends".

    It's possible the tab doesn't show if you've never gotten an infraction, I'm not sure.

    Thanks. I guess I have none. Although I have received two bad boy emails from mods previously (one deserved and one not).

    Thanks from the Dark Side!!!

    Don't do stupid stuff and treat people with respect and you wouldn't have to ask this question.

    A little do as I say and not as I do ... ? Is it possible that what you (and more importantly the mods) find is stupid and disrespectful is different from what others believe.

    Noted hypocrisy from the Dark Side!!!

    No, I'm pretty sure respect is universal.

    Then you would agree you were being disrespectful in your initial statement? Calling the actions of others stupid and disrespectful is almost text book disrespect.

    No, I'm pretty sure pointing out the obvious isn't being disrespectful. Telling someone not to do something stupid.. isn't being disrespectful.
