Warning System going forward
« on: October 18, 2017, 07:55:48 PM »
The warning system is being simplified. The rules themselves will stand as they are currently written. Naryar's system was fine on paper but in actual use was more complicated than needed for a forum of this size.

The majority of you know how you're supposed to behave. For those moments where you have lapses in judgement, forum staff will be given the benefit of the doubt to handle the situation as they see fit. We have logs of all actions taken by both moderator and administrative staff, and will be able to review any course of action that seems unfair. I have the utmost trust in the folks that volunteer their time to help staff this forum, and as such I am willing to give them that leeway until I am given a reason to take it away.

If you feel as though you are/were unjustly treated, please contact a member of the staff other than the person who handled your situation so that it can be brought to our attention collectively.

In the meantime, I would like to note the fact that the attitude of our community has turned sour recently, to the point where other segments of the greater robot combat community have taken notice. The game that brought all of you here in the first place is almost 15 years old now, older than some of our members. There is absolutely no reason to be treating your peers like garbage, because there aren't that many of them left. More than anything now, we are policing attitudes. Keep that in mind.


For once the mods did something right

Sour community has always been a problem here. It was a problem when I was new and got attacked by all ends, and I still see it today, to the point that like you said other communities have noticed. Ive seen a few other people on various Robot Combat communities such as the subreddit I help mod about people avoiding here because of how hateful GTM can be. Im glad to see you guys in charge here are keeping up the good work, hopefully we can all improve GTM to be a better place, It was the 1st Robot community I ever joined, so I want to see it last as long as possible  :smile:

With the new warning system in place, this will particularly help some more newer members to adjust into the forum and hopefully be treated less like dirt by some older, less-patience members. So, thank you Kill.
