    I...am your father.

    Default New Forum Infraction Policy

    Well, it took 7 years but it's finally here. I enjoyed the easy-going friendliness of this community but things have been getting hand of late and the moderators can't seem to win - they delete a post and they're dictators. They leave a post alone and dozens get offended or angry and don't come back. They talk to a member in an effort to work with the member and guide them back to the path of niceness and sometimes they get nice responses but sometimes snarky responses (or worse).

    Anyway, the rules of the forum are simple - similar to the rules of a classy sports bar. No hate. No personal insults.

    So we inch another step closer to the overbearing forums you can find elsewhere.


    We now have an infraction system in place. If you get an infraction, do not get upset. Each infraction disappears from your account after 10 days. But if you get FOUR infractions within 10 days, the system will automatically slap a 10-day ban on your IP address. You'll still be allowed to read the forum. You won't be allowed to post. So getting an infraction "that isn't fair" shouldn't make you whine to us. Shrug it off. You need four in 10 days for it to do anything, and if you get four within 10 days then you need to look in the mirror - maybe a couple of the infractions were actually, gulp, deserved?

    If you can't play nice, then you don't belong in this community.

    Here is a breakdown of the infractions I have put in place:

    Spammed Advertisements 1 10 Day(s)
    Insulted Other Member(s) 1 10 Day(s)
    Signature/Avatar Violation 1 10 Day(s)
    Inappropriate Language 1 10 Day(s)


    Thank you for your understanding. If you have to ask yourself if the "Inappropriate Language" or "Insulted Other Member" infraction was just committed in a post you were about to click 'submit' on, then just play it safe and re-word it. Right?


    Thank you for your understanding. Let's get back to the chatter

    Somehow I don't think you want certain people in this lounge speaking the same way they speak to their mother...

    My mother is unaware of the trainwreck thread era.

    In all seriousness though, infractions are long overdue IMO. It's never fun when people steamroll the ground rules over and over again without consequence.

    Unfortunate that this is necessary, but it clearly is.

    Guys need to loosen up, its fantasy hockey we are doing. The info you gather from this site can be PRICELESS at times.
    If everyone agreed with everyone else then there would be no discussion needed. The difference of opinion is what makes the site great, and helps with our pools.
    As KRAMER would say "giddy up".

    It was overruled because you can't call his posts advice. They are kisses of death.

    Pretty good system, you basically have to be a complete tard for 10 days to get banned, although some of the criteria seem vague...like inappropriate language.

    On a side note though, and maybe I'm missing something, but I read the forum pretty much every day and haven't really noticed anything bad enough to warrant a ban. Sure guys get into heated arguments and there are some running feuds between certain members but you get that on any forum and that's what makes it good.

    I've been a long time member on another very busy sports forum that has almost 10 million posts vs dobbers 1.2 million and it pretty much went to the dumps once mods went nuts with bans and rules. Many of long time, and valuable posters just upped and left and the level of debate/discussion plummeted.

    Dobber is easily the best sports forum I've been on in regards to member knowledge and advice given, you've all done great job managing it so far. That's why changes like this sometimes scare me, hopefully this new system works out without any detriment to the forum.

    LOVE IT!

    And am interested to see how this new infraction system will play out.

    Just like the Shanny vids previously made fun of, will the actual 10 day bans be made public to show everyone the policy is truly in place a/o servicing the need it was intended to serve?

    (Not sure what side of the fence I'm on here...but thought I'd ask the question).

    On one side...we clearly demonstrate Rep points (mainly good but both). That helps readers weigh...if they so choose...the quality of advice they may choose to take.

    Infractions...when made public... may help especially the new guys ignore the donkey's that like to get abusive on here.

    or not.

    Just interested.
