    Infraction Notifications

    Hi mods,

    No intention of discussing who did what in here. Just a request, probably for James or Cribb I guess.

    Now I appreciate that all infractions or warnings are accompanied by an email. However if posters don't check their email a lot that might not be a whole lot of use. Is there any way an infraction can display as a notification in the top corner in the same way as a VM does.

    Now I don't plan on benefitting from this much (and I have just linked my hotmail account to my phone anyhow) but it might be useful. Warnings & infractions could be pretty worthless if a poster continues posting the same things for a few days without realising they were warned/infracted and winds up getting a ban.

    This is something GingerFurball mentioned in the other thread but I felt it deserved a thread of its own.

    It's not possible unless we enable PMs.

    Could you not enable PMs but only allow mods to send them?

    Yes. James isn't keen on that though.

    Okay - any particular reason? Obviously if that's the case then fair enough, but I think notifications for infractions would be very helpful to both members and mods.

    And you'd have a whole new avenue to send me those messages of love you like to push my way,

    Yeah, AWTA. I didn't realise that I had "receive emails from administrators" set to "no", so I didn't realise I'd got my first infraction for about a week.

    That's a good point and we've talked about that. Members do need to know as soon as possible that they've been infracted. However, aside from PMs, I don't think that is possible unless we leave it on people's profiles - which would be public.

    From what I understand, they were used here once before and were immediately spammed into oblivion by spam bots.

    They were used for spam a long long time ago, yes, but not by spambots.

    When we were testing the system and andyc gave me an avatar infraction () the message went straight to my spam.

    I did VM a couple of people early on when we were using the system, and let them know they could delete the VM if they wanted. I don't know if this would work, or whether other members would leave baiting messages on the VM after the mod to try to get a reaction. That sometimes happens in threads after mod warnings.
