Why do I have a warrn %

Recommended Posts

In the forum, under my name, location etc... there is a small bar graph showing warn (%0) [][][][][]. No one else seems to have this, why do I?

Is it because I can be a little outspoken at times? Are the mods watching me? :)

No worries. Everybody has those. I assume the reason you see only yours is that you are neither a moderator or admin.

Ah cool. So... we all have them, but can only see our own unless we are a mod etc. Cool. Bit paranoid.... never noticed it before. ( and I know I can get a little hot headed at times)

It's a mechanism for group moderation that can eventually lead to automatic banning. When we have trouble with someone we can as mods raise their warning level. If it gets to 100% the person gets a ban.

You can sleep easy, as your warn level is 0% -- you have never had a warning issued. When you do you recieve a PM, and the mod usually explains why they issued you the warning.

You've never noticed it before as that feature was only switched on the other day...

And actually gizmola, thorpe did have his warn level adjusted at one point. If you click on the 0 in the parenthesis, you can see the log.

I'm glad to see that Thorpe's % was restored to 0%. Reckon someone went a bit OTT issuing that in the first place. RTFM is pretty standard and well known abbreviation, Ive even known our admins use WTF

I am responsible for the warn level. i enabled it to allow members to see what warning they were at, and you can click it to see your entire, lifetime, warn log. when warns were raised and why, and when they were lowered and why. Only an admin or moderator can see everyone elses, and you can only see your own. this was more to help you out, because some mods will warn you and not tell you what about. so now you can see what your doing wrong and fix it so you dont get in futher trouble.
