"Other" is anything else that goes against our Terms of Service. Moderators may use their discretion and apply anywhere from 1-15 warning points, depending on the seriousness of the offense. Please refer to our website terms and conditions, for a full list of rules.
Information for Staff Members:
I'm working hard to make the relevant changes as quickly - and Bizdustry is growing at an unprecedented rate that I never anticipated so I am wanting to make moderation as simple and easy as possible. Now, instead of spending 20 minutes writing out a private message to a user, all you have to do is use the "Warn" feature and select the appropriate rule violated. Ensure "start a conversation with user" is selected and the message will be sent. You may use the "Delete Content" feature if you feel it's required.
All warnings will expire 24 months from the date of issue. The warning system works with points, meaning 15 points are equal to a ban and most violations will mean 5 points being applied to the user's account. Meaning, 3 warnings, and the member being banned from the forum.
Please note: You do not have to apply adjustments from now. Each time you warn a user, the system will automatically deduct 1000 points regardless of the offense being committed
