    Re: Introducing a New Method for Enforcing TOS/Site Rules

    I am just wondering about "sexual innuendo" in the Breeding section. People regularly use terms like "sexy" to express their joy at snakes in general, I have noticed. Is this considered an infraction, I wonder? Or "my balls" (referring to BPs..) I hope that I don't get an infraction for this post; it is in the interest of learning the ropes.

    Re: Introducing a New Method for Enforcing TOS/Site Rules

    To clarify a couple of things...

    John's total Infraction points is part of the exceptions noted in the "A Note on Moderated Members" in the original post. He understands this, and if he does not, he may contact an admin for clarity. His total is between him and the admins.

    On the questions about what qualifies as "sexual innuendo" and similar issues regarding the subjective judgement that the staff may need to make from time to time:

    This new Infraction System is not intended to create a NEW set of rules that are even more strict than the ones everyone has been living happily under for years now...it is to ENFORCE the rules we already have. Have we ever gotten someone into trouble for the typical "balls and racks" puns? No. We're realistic and have always tried to maintain a fine balance between appropriate family-friendly language and the realism of normal, every day conversation and humor. Even Disney-type animated films meant for children include humor that adults "get" and kids don't.

    Either you trust us to run the site fair and reasonably...or you don't. There are those who will never trust us, no matter what steps we take, either forward or backward, in the enforcement of the TOS/Rules they agreed to abide by when registering. There's really nothing we can do about that except to continue to do our best.

    Lastly....a note on the QT forum and increasing restrictions on who may join. It's been tried in the past, and at this time we have no intention of going down that particular road again. That is a "darned if you do" and "darned if you don't" situation and no matter what we do, there will be people who disagree with the policy. So we'll stick with what has been working best for the staff so far.

    Re: Introducing a New Method for Enforcing TOS/Site Rules

    If you want to explain it, John...you are more than welcomed to. It's not some big secret. I just didn't think it would be appropriate for me to do so. But if you'd like for me to, I will.

    Re: Introducing a New Method for Enforcing TOS/Site Rules

    Alrighty....

    John has been banned from the site before and returned only under a probationary status. While "on probation" he still struggled with self control and being able to respect the community here by staying within the bounderies of our TOS/Rules. He came "that close" to getting himself banned again and was put on moderated status indefinitely.

    When we removed the moderated status means of enforcement...we could not just give John a "blank slate." So, his Infraction Points now reflect how close he is to getting banned again and how much self-control he must maintain in order to keep it from happening.

    This is being explained because John requested it. It is NOT open for debate.
