Changes to the NextGenUpdate Infraction System
Staff has been discussing ways to make the infraction system on NGU more private and formal. To do this we have hidden the infraction section and set it so our mystery member Punisher will PM the member who is infracted their infraction.
But Drack, how do I dispute my infraction if I think it was wrongly given?
Simple :drack:. Just forward the PM to a super moderator (they can be found on the usergroups page here).
The super moderator you PM will know who gave the infraction because the thread will be viewable to them. This information will be kept private however. The super will discuss the situation with both you and the moderator separately. If the super moderator feels like the infraction was wrongly given or too harsh, they have the authority to reverse it.
Infractions are to be as mature as possible now. If you feel like you are wrongly treated in an infraction please contact me or another administrator and we will handle the situation. Infractions are now supposed to be professionally done.
Before you post saying "This is just to protect moderators and make things more unfair for us."
This is not true. Moderators are still held accountable for power abuse. There is a log where we can view what infraction was given to whom regardless of the PM. We will know.
Thanks for reading :drack:.
