Warning
« on: April 19, 2020, 20:19:58 »
The other day I had noticed I had been warned but as yet I do not know the reason as I did not see anything in my message section. Its a head scratcher as I avoid controversial topics. Thanks

I would like to see warnings come with a clear explanation as to the reason.  I got one for posting a link to an article in which the journalist wasn't liked for whatever reasons.  I thought because the article was from a reputable news paper that it would be fine.  I sent a message to the person who gave it to me but to this day, I never heard anything back so I still don't know what I did wrong.

I am not the individual who gave you the Warning. But, I believe you may be referring to this Sticky,

In that specific instance, it is a reputable source and reputable journalist who, in the past, has threatened to sue the website.  As a precautionary measure, the site owner has directed that he, his articles and other content from him (social media etc) not be posted to the site or discussed on the site.

Still unclear?

In regards to that though, a Warning maybe isn't the best thing, as stellerpanther didn't intentionally do anything wrong.  In fact, he posted a link to a topic that was related to the discussion, and simply didn't know about the situation with said reporter.  Taking the posting down and a PM may have been appropriate.

Usually if you receive a warning, there should be a message in your inbox as to why.  T6, you check the inbox?

Good day Tomahawk.

I issued you the warning the other day. There is a PM notification that was supposed to go with it, but I neglected to attach it accordingly. As well, I could’ve offered more insight with my staff direction in the Covid thread at the time, but admittedly, I was hasty, abrupt and could’ve taken time with a bit more of an explanation. I am more than happy to PM you specifics, if you wish.

Stellarpanther:

The reason for the warning you referenced was explained clearly to you by garb811 in the same thread. You were also advised to read our site policies. That explains everything you need to know. The 2 links below should clear up any remaining confusion you may have.

What else do you call it when you get told "don't do that again," but receive no punitive measures whatsoever?

I made the same mistake and got the same warning before. I then recognized what I had done incorrectly and never did it again. And you know what? The problem has gone away and no one cares about it anymore.

Just so you know, the warnings are percentage based and decay at 10% a day. We'll use them as a moderation team so that we can easily track warning history without having to search posts in a thread. Users can also assess 5% warnings via milpoints, but you'll get automatic notifications for milpoints although I'm not sure if it specifies if the warning was added.

If there's any question on warnings (sometime the notifications don't work), feel free to PM any moderator and we can see your warning history and who applied it to get an answer for you.

Thank you for sending me that, I now clearly understand the reason for it.  Prior to this I had no idea why the article I posted was inappropriate.
