With the ever increasing number of members here on G35Driver, the demands on our staff have also grown.
In an effort to improve efficiency and provide a consistent, equitable method of control,
we are expanding the use of the current infraction/warning system.
When corrective actions are required, the member will receive detailed reference to the Forum Rules
to help him/her understand the correction that is being asked for.
If you receive a warning from the system, please do not take it personally. That is not the intention.
This system also provides the users with direct feedback on their status on G35Driver with a points system.
The point system helps remove the ambiguity of time outs and banishments by the staff.
With an Infraction
the user will receive a point(s) depending on the Forum Rule broken.
With a Warning
, the user will receive no points; a warning is more of a caution to follow the Forum Rules
