Infractions/Warnings

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone knows how long infractions/warnings stay on your account?

I'm getting no responses to my PMs to the Mods involved.....

The infraction reason has changed too. At First it was 'Spammed Advertisements' now it's that with Self Promo....

Just wondering if anyone can help. Despite being a bit annoyed at the infraction (which I have explained reasons to the mods involved but got nothing back) - I'd just like to know how long they stay on your profile for?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help! :)

Hi,
Not too sure how they work but noticed yesterday that I received one for using the word that even my 4 year old uses for something thats not good!!!... rhymes with trap and starts with 'c'.... Probably get another one now!
Dont think its very fair to get one for using that word when others use much worse!!

Crikey! That's really bad!!! I hadn't realised that was 'inappropriate language'? lol

I got one for selling items when I used to do Parties!!

But the Mods just won't respond to my PMs - despite one of them giving me permission to list late last year!

Oh well! :thumbsup:

If you are selling more than one of the same item then it isn't allowed. As you seem to have a lot of similar stock it's quite obvious why you could be seen as a trader. If you have a case to make then send a message to Admin using the Contact Us link.

You simply have a warning. Can you not see the expiry date on your profile?

Warnings last for 10 days, I'm not sure about infractions.

Doh!!! I really did not see the expiry date at all!

I can see how I can be seen as a trader - but the point I made to the mods was that people sell a lot more items games/dvds etc in vaster quantities but this seems ok.

I Pm'd a mod last year to explain everything and was given permission. I just have a lot of things lying around that is all as I was over enthusiastic buying from ebay and the likes last year for my parties.

Since had a baby - so I no longer need all of the items - as I don't do parties as I'm in line for a real job now ha!

Thanks for pointing out the expiry date though. I'm just annoyed the mods in questions simply couldn't be bothered to talk through the reasoning with me properly as my PM's were very reasonable.

Many thanks again! :)

We've had a more fierce clampdown this year to avoid problems on the board. If you see anyone who you suspect could be a trader, then please let us know.

I can completely understand that. Thank You :)

I recieved an infraction for supposedly dealing via PM.

What happened was the seller sent an offer acceptance to me via PM, then retracted it later after I asked for his paypal address (he'd gone and sold it to someone else in the time it took me to reply!). Then I started complaining in the thread about how he accepted my offer and then retracted it & the mod assumed I'd been dealing over PM.

So I receieved an infraction for dealing over PM, when all I did was ask for his paypal address! Tried explaining this to the mod but no reply what so ever!!

Maybe they just can't be bothered with us? It would only take a simple conversation to resolve though wouldn't it??
#10
Its because it was dealing over PM, acceptance MUST be done in the thread for those very reasons, so anyone else seeing the thread doesnt make an offer etc.

You shouldn't really have continued the sale, you should have asked the seller to post in the thread to say they're accepting. This avoids problems like this further down the line. :)

EDIT: What ryouga said. :)

but use a fair bit of slang, finding it difficult to use words to suit such a ""Family Friendly"" (Quote!!) Website! lol!

(14) Please only post in a thread if you are interested in engaging in the sale/trade listed. Anything else will be considered thread spoiling and will be deleted. Thread spoilers face a ban from the FS/FT forum.

that is funny
maybe an example of what happens to you when power goes to your head.

meg·a·lo·ma·ni·a (měg'ə-lō-mā'nē-ə, -mān'yə)
n.

1. A psychopathological condition characterized by delusional fantasies of wealth, power, or omnipotence.
2. An obsession with grandiose or extravagant things or actions.

It was also Col who slapped my wrists for my terrible use of an (almost) swear word!

Think about it people, we all wanted the FS/FT forum cleaned up so anyone that went in there as a Mod had no choice but to stick to the letter of the law and take a hard line with everyone.

There's bound to be a few teething problems and borderline stuff but it's a damn hard job he's taken on.

Time will tell but it's probably not a good time to start criticising someone for something we all wanted to happen. Maybe a bit of understanding and support would get the place sorted quicker and make it better for us all to use.

Just my opinion of course. Peace :)

Thats fine but the thread was asking for advice on how much they were worth :x
#26
And if anyone saw it... it was where someone asked me to post a pic os something

You were self promoting.
#29
Got to admit I don't know why that particular word is banned , I thought it had been allowed now.
I thought I'd seen it used recently in a thread ?

Anyway we don't make the rules do we ?

Perhaps a petition to allow (that word) on HUKD ? lol :) (j/k)
#31
I believe it was banned after member requests. :?

I would wash my 10 year old's mouth out with soap if he used that word.

It's mild, but why would you want your 4 year old going to school and saying things like that?

Well, firstly because I dont really see it as a bad word, if he said the F word i'd be well hacked off with him, Secondly, I don't come down too hard on him for minor things, im not a softy or anything but my parents were v harsh on us and believe me it only brought trouble.
I dont believe in letting him away with murder but surely there's some sort of in between?:)

You mean you have a power-to-headed mod?

Not saying ANY names.

So as I don't get an Infraction or warning.
#40
Also, they do say not to react too much to what small kids say as the attention makes them want to say it again, obviously, this strategy would not work with a ten year old but I find with my 4 year old, the bigger deal I make out of something, the more chance there is he will do it again
