PC ERA moved to this small part of hell
No Admins, No Mods! Every single full member of the forum is equal and everyone is responsible for making it a good place for people to have chats on various gaming (and non-gaming) topics.
Content removal is handled automatically through the use of the forum's Report function. If a post receives 3 reports - it will be automatically removed. To protect this functionality from abuse - each report will be visible to all full members (including the user whose content got reported) on the profile page of the user whose content received the report. Each report will be fully detailed and include the date, username of the person who issued the report and the comments left when the report was issued. Only report content that is illegal, offensive or in any way violates any of the terms and rules stated in this list. Do not report content that you simply disagree with, because while there is technically no way to stop you from doing it - your behaviour will eventually get noticed, which leads us to the second part of the way to keep the forum a friendly place for everyone:
User bans will function as follows: each full member has access to the forum's Warning functionality. Each issued warning applies one warning point which expires after 25 days. If at any time a user has accumulated 3 active warning points - they will automatically receive a 24h ban. If they manage to gather a further 3 warnings (for a total of 6) - the next ban will be a 48h one, then one week (at 9 points), then one month (at 12 points) and then the final one will be a permanent ban (at 15 active warning points). Bans are applied after reaching a warning point threshold, so if a user gets below 3 active points and then reaches the threshold again - a 24h ban will be automatically applied. Additionally - each time a user gets banned, there will be a thread created automatically in the Ban Notifications forum. Same as with reports - to protect this functionality from abuse - each warning will be visible to all full members on the profile page of the user who received the warning (including the user themselves). Each warning will be fully detailed and include the date, username of the person who issued the warning and any comments left when the warning was issued. Only warn users for content or behaviour that is illegal, offensive or in any way violates any of the terms and rules stated in this list. Do not warn users who you simply disagree with, because while there is technically no way to stop you from doing it - your behaviour will eventually get noticed and dealt with accordingly.
Imagine the power cliques will hold.
