    If one has no infractions then is there no reference to them?

    I have tables for Reputation Received and Given, but no such table for infractions. I would assume that I do not have any, yet I would like to confirm for those who maybe worried.

    I would also like to ask, that is the system will be used for posts written but not reported before the rollout? Or will it be a clean point in time, in reltionship to posts made and posts reviewed under the new system?

    Thank you for your time and efforts.

    Correct

    Correct. When you receive an Infraction, it will display above your Reputation Received table.

    There is a phase in period, so it depends. We usually don't consider it fair to punish for stuff thats old. Right now, most of what have been issued (and theres only been a few) are warnings only.

    No problem :)

    Thanks for keeping the site attractive to people who enjoy more conversation and less trolling. :) That might even be a good MT slogan...

    So, uh, what's the infraction system for Marital Talk going to be like?

    20 Points - Didn't pick up socks and/or underwear
    20 Points - Failure to share the remote control
    20 Points - Failure to take out trash
    20 Points - Failure to share in responsibilities of child rearing
    20 Points - Commented "Yes, your butt DOES look fat in those jeans"
    100,000,000,000,000,000,000 Points - Lipstick on collar


    :D


    (kidding) :)


    Thanks to all who make the site enjoyable for everyone.

    Naw, that looks like something my wife (had I one) would use. :D

    An example of MT's is waaaay back towards the beginning of this thread. It's evolving as we try to cover things we missed earlier.

    - I think it is very good aswel, had it not been contradicting.
    And i think it is OK that you keep on with pissing me off. (Of course ... i am joking)
    - The sparring has not begun.
    - Good point. Where is you God to challenge my God?

    Please make sure your rules gets enforced.

    Watch out! It is OK if you can live without food only though. :D
    I think we both operate on a common sense here.

    Thanks

    Because my leaving serves as a solution, when i am having a problem with it. I think i will do that willingly. (Thanks for not banning me. Much appreciated. :D)
    But still. You have this weakness in your system IMO.

    I am unable to see the contradictions that you type of. It is a simple system of guidelines regulating polite discourse. One would expect that if one can operate a computer, that one has the capacity to read, reason, understand, and comply with such a simple system. You either lack that capacity or are intentionally disrupting matters with your insistence of non-existent contradiction that only you are able to visualize.

    As to the gods, "If there are Gods, they do not help, and victory belongs to the strong." I do not need imaginary playmates to serve as a crutch for my own failings or inability to comply with required social mores. Your continued inane babbling would have earned you a ban a long time ago, had the staff here not shown great restraint and attempted to educate the uneducatable.

    Mustafa, I think I can speak from everyone here that we are interested in talking with you online. However I am at least having a hard time following your posts. Please try to make it easier to understand your posts. I for one would like to have a nice discourse with you. Thanks in advance.

    Your posts are in fact consistently difficult to follow, fail to stick to the issues in the thread in spite of moderators' repeated requests, bring in religious references in a manner whose relevance to the points at issue is totally obscure, and for some peculiar reason wind up being mostly about yourself. The effect is to disrupt the thread---a point which people have repeatedly made to you and which you appear to be disregarding entirely. Please pay attention to the negative feedback you've been getting---we don't know you, or who you are; the response you've been getting, the negative rep points and so on, almost certainly reflect the facts about your posts that I've mentioned.

    Whatever your cause is, you're not helping it...

    Do what you want, but do not teach me to give up what i hold dear to me.
    You can teach yourselves.

    Thanks for you hospitality

    It is not the quantity, but the incoherence that is concerning.

    I have no idea what MAP is; therefore, leaving you be seems like a reasonable option.

    What, exactly, has anyone tried to get you to give up?
