      It resolves the old system where it was never a "get your points back" deal. I think this system works better for everyone.

      I will not comment on the exact number, but too many infractions and a user is banned. Its also worth noting, however, that bans are not automated and need to be authorized by an administrator. Moderators cannot ban or restrict users - so there is some oversight there.

      We also rarely ban users without a warning. If you're close to a ban, you'll know about it.

      Feel free to pm with more questions.

      So the next time I see a thread entitled " Rimz on my 98 Gti" with a link to some crappy multi lug junk wheels, you're saying that I should report it instead of flaming?
      I'd love to kick your poodle. I'd love to slig your cat. I'll bust your yanni cds with a baseball bat. I'd send your fat-mouth mama sailing like the flying nun. I'd like to shoot you in the a$$ with a bb gun.

      Well ... report it if its off topic. If its actually about "rimz" on a 98 GTI, then it seems like its on topic for the forum. If thats the case, ignore it rather than flaming.

      Usually option A will be better than option B if option B is "flaming". Flaming is against the rules and will get you banned if you do it continually. So yes, report "instead of flaming".

      You guys were ALL warned a number of times to keep that thread on topic. We will NOT spend time continually cleaning up posts over and over. If you guys can't collectively keep a thread on topic (especially after being warned IN the thread) then you lose it. Period. Sorry guys.

      Don't get me wrong, I get where you're coming from. But letting these "repeat offenders" continue to post in these threads and get them locked, I just don't understand that. Obviously saying "guys, I'm going to lock the thread if you don't stop arguing" doesn't work... but yeah, keep doing what you gotta do I guess

      I'm not seeing your name on ANY of the thread reports. Normally, I'd take this as a valid gripe but you aren't expressing your opinion until too late.
      Report stuff instead of complaining when it's too late.

      Nobody is ignoring anything, OMT. Mobius1 is refering to a conversation on the first day I started moderating the forum. No worries.

      I agree that the stance thread was locked due to a few people constantly derailing the thread. Had i read this thread before the stance thread was locked, i would have reported some to save one of the best threads in this part of the forums. Unfortunately, i suppose that was the last straw for you guys so i understand the lock. Just an unfortunate situation where a few people ruined things to try and "be tough".

      Good luck with the cleanup, i hope it works.

      I completely understand the zero tolerance plan and giving out infractions to those who like to flame and what not. Maybe even ban a few of them for being extreme a**holes. I guess zero tolerance doesn't come into play on the stance thread. Instead of taking down BS posts and giving infractions it got locked. Thanks mk3 mod team.

      It was a long time coming. They've warned people in that thread endless times. Someone even mentioned it will get locked if they kept it up on the last people. Don't get mad at the person who locked it, get mad at the people who caused it to get locked.

      i was literally just about to post the exact same thing. Immediately following my message of disgust to ole Nater. Locking good threads instead of banning individuals deters people from the thread who are longtime members just as much if not more than having wise comments to the noobs.
