FANDOM


The point system is a process used to track and punish misbehaviour. The system works on the principle that every offense will add points and time will remove them; at 20 points, a user is suspended for one week, and at 30 points, the user is permanently and unequivocally banned without chance for appeal. It was devised as a replacement to the failed Warning Rule, which users considered too subjective and uncertain.

Criticism Edit

The system, like the previous, is often subject to criticism. One point that has been brought up is the cumulative nature of certain offenses (such as spamming) which can accumulate to nearly a suspension due to a single incident which, according to some victims, can be wholly unintentional.
