New! - User Infraction System

Dear Members,

We have launched the User Infraction System across all forums with immediate effect. We look forward to everyone's cooperation and support to ensure the forums remain a friendly and useful community to be in.

User Infraction System
The following explains the infraction system used in the www.hardwarezone.com.sg forums. The Infraction System automates certain process of the moderating duties while it ensure forum’s rules and regulation are adhere to.

Depending on the seriousness of the offence, one can be awarded 2 or 3 Infraction points. If someone accumulates 12 infraction points they will be banned for 3 days.

Sometimes you may receive a warning rather than an infraction depending on the seriousness of the offence. Warnings look like infractions but are worth 0 points and do not count toward your total infraction table. Warnings usually apply to more minor violations, or first time violations.

You may view your infractions points on your "User CP" page. No one else is able to see how many infractions you have. If you do not see any infractions listed that means you have not received one. When you do get an infraction, a private message is sent to you. Infraction points expire after only 12 months and is accumulative if you continue to violate the general rules and regulation of the forum. Members can get infraction points for the following reasons:

Thread digging or Rubbish/Nusiance Thread/Post (expires in 12 Months)
Spammed Advertisements (expires in 12 Months)
Posting/Sharing Pornography or related materials (expires in 12 Months)
Inappropriate Language / Insulted Other (s) (expires in 12 Months)
Troublemaker (trolling, impersonation, etc..) (expires in 12 Months)
Posting Racist Comments (expires in 12 Months)
Others (expires in 12 Months)

If anyone tries to circumvent a temporary ban by posting under another user name, they will be banned permanently.

Please be aware that forum posters who deliberately and viciously break the rules may be permanently banned with no warning. Decisions on the execution of Temporary or Permanent Bans is up to the discretion of the moderators and administrators.


For reference, these are temp/perm ban levels that are automatically issued for the active infraction points your account may receive:-

12 Points => 3 Days Temp Ban
18 Points => 7 Days Temp Ban
24 Points => 2 Weeks Temp Ban
30 Points => 1 Month Temp Ban
36 Points => Permanent Ban

You will know when you have received an Infraction because a PM will be sent to you by the system.

Hi there,
As mentioned by Nitrile, each Warning or Infraction is being accompanied by a PM to you. In addition you may check on your individual Infraction/Warning record via "User CP" link in the forum.

Hope the information is useful to you.

Regards,

Infraction does indeed have effects like creating a new user to just continue posting after a ban.
thereafter, after the temporary ban is lifted. There will be 2 accounts to facilitate.

I'm sure there are incidents of this happening most of the times, but it seems this situation is being overlooked by the moderators.

i can't find any definition on the the Thread Digging thing, i just got 2 points today...
can the moderator answer how long is thread digging? can the system just automatically just close the thread so that members do not post there anymore?

나는 그런 위반에 아주 질렸습니다. 당신은 사용자의 논평을 편집해야 해요.
나는 가끔씩 당신 정말 미워요! 6월 후에 나는 hwz관리자를 정말로 싫었어요.

My main account is a DM member, got Mass Order running.

You ban my account, how I going to contact those forum users ? I cannot go inside my own inbox to check what they message me. I have 2-3 users deposit money to my bank account, but i cannot account for it.
