    Peace and Blessings Family,

    We're going to do warning / violations / moderation different than we have in the past.

    This will be the first piece of this new system ... public warnings being issued to the violating post.

    When you violate any one of our 13 rules ... you'll receive a warning in that post, that will also appear on your profile page ... and a private conversation will be sent to you too, notifying you of the warning ... that you can't respond to ... but you're welcome to open a new thread in the Violations Forum ... to talk about if you'd like.

    Each warning will have a point or two associated with it (along with an expiration date), and when you reach a total of 5 points, your access to the community will automatically be limited. Some rule violations will have more and/or different points or consequences associated with it. I'm still figuring that part out, which rule violations will get what consequence. As it's determined, you all will know.

    In an effort to bring this first piece to the table ... warnings given over the next few days, will not count in real life ... :look: ... but it will allow us to see the kinds of things that will be warned (things that folk have gotten away with in the past) ... allowing everyone to adjust their behavior so that they can stay within the rules.

    For example, i don't think yall see yourselves personalizing the discussion ... so i'm going to show you ... every time i see it ... with a warning ... and you'll receive a point or two ... and when you reach 5 your access will be limited.

    So we can use this transition period for us all to learn the system ... as well as adjust ourselves if necessary.

    Another important piece to this new system ... that will be coming soon ... is that ... if you are a Premium Member you will have the opportunity to issue warnings ... be Moderators ... if you choose ... if your behavior has been rule abiding ... if you are folk i can work with on my TEAM ... if i can feel confident that you will be fair, unbiased, and welcoming to all ... so many things go into being a part of my TEAM ... managing this community ... but Premium Members that fit the bill ... and want to help in this capacity ... will be much appreciated.

    That's coming soon ... but for now ... we're trying out the new warning system.

    There has been a LOT OF PERSONALIZING THE DISCUSSIONS!

    There has been a LOT OF NAME CALLING.

    These are rule violations ... review all 13 Rules ... or else you're problee not finna be happy with me.

    From this point forward ... we'll be seeing new warnings for violations ... who's gonna be first?

    If you have any questions, just ask.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Okay ... i made test be first ... :)

    You should be able to see the post i warned them about.

    You should be able to see the warning tab on their profile page.

    And of course, you can't see the private conversation sent to them, but they can't respond to it anyway ... must start a new thread (out in the open) if you wanna talk about it ... in the Violations Forum.

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAY USSSSSSSSSSS ... :yaay:

    Love You!

    :heart:

    That's not his name.

    That's not the name he registered as.

    Not only is it name-calling, it's personalizing the discussion.

    It's not about him, or your perception of him being a disciple to anyone.

    You personalize the discussion without even knowing i think.

    But it's okay ... i'll be showing you every time i see it ... i got your back ... :)

    Love You!

    So I should have done as he did and address another poster to show disrespect for the opinions of other posters on the thread as Corvo did when he said, "That's okay, Blackbird, they don't know what they're talking about" (something like that)? I appreciate that you have a tough job in having to answer reports, but taking up for the pot when he calls the kettle black is not right.

    You should not break the rules your own self.

    Pointing at others breaking the rules, will NEVER be a defense for your doing it.

    No matter what someone else does ... you must not break the rules.

    If you're breaking the rules yourself ... i aint even gonna hear you talk to me about someone else doing it. We've had this conversation before. Get your own behavior inline, and i'll be more than happy to hear your thoughts on someone else's poor behavior.

    But you can't have poor behavior ... and want to talk about other poor behavior folk.

    I don't get down like that.

    Sorry.

    Love You!

    It never occurred to me that I was breaking any rules by pointing out a legitimate relationship as NOTED by Corvo. I am not one to whine about "they did it first!" If saying Corvo is a "disciple" is name-calling then my saying Blackbird is an "HONORABLE man" on another thread is name-calling as well. Disciple is no more a "bad" description than is "honorable."

    Stop it Sister ... you reported Kemetstry for calling you "Dear."

    STOP IT !!!

    You're way too smart for me to be going back and forth like this with you over these very basic principles.

    I warned Kemestry for calling you "Dear" ... because you reported it as a violation ... now you want to talk about calling someone an "Honorable Man" and such ... ??!!! ... please ... don't play with me.

    Just abide by the rules.

    Call everyone by the name they registered as ... or risk being in violation.

    Thanks.
