    Icon4 Forum exposť - The infraction system is broken

    At the moment there are thresholds for ban lengths.

    I'm lead to believe they are:

    15 7 Day
    30 1 Month
    45 3 Month
    55 6 Month
    60 1 Year
    150 Perma.

    Say for example, I accumulate 30 infraction points, and am banned for one month.

    In the space of that one month, two lots of my infractions (2 x 5pointers) expire, so when I return I am down to 20 infraction points in total. Say I call someone a ****, and I get hit with a 5 point infraction, my total goes up to 25 and nothing happens.


    Now, say for example in that one month that I'm banned, two lots of my infractions (2 x 5pointers) expire, so when I return I am down to 20 infraction points in total. Then I am on my best behaviour for another 6 months, being the model poster, and another two lots of infractions expire, meaning I'm down to ten points in total. then I call someone a **** and get hit with a 5 points infraction. I'm then given a ban because I've reached the 15 point threshold.

    Surely I'm not the only one who can see that it's a broken system?

    What should happen is that when you get 15 points, you get 7 days. then when you come back you get a clean slate. Then if you get another 15 points, you get 30 days. Then when you come back, clean slate. If you get another 15 points you get 3 months and so on and so forward.

    I understand that the infractions can't be programmed like that, so instead, infractions shouldn't have an expiration date, that way you can't be punished for good behaviour.

    Slow day in Denmark?

    Seriously though you make a good point, but one could argue that being on 25 points is a worse situation because I puts you close to a 30 day ban instead of misely 7 day ban. Could definety do with some looking into though.

    This happened to someone on Cricsim once.

    I forget the exact figures, but they hit a 3 day ban for reaching (say) 20 points. During their ban, one earlier infraction expired so they were back down to 20, then got an infraction on their return and were immediately banned again. They would have been better off if that original infraction hadn't expired.

    It was something like that anyway.

    Yeah instead of infracting people just ban them.

    Thinking more about this, I don't think going back to a clean slate and then another 15 and you're up to the next threshold is the right way to go about it either, because although it doesn't punish good behaviour (unlike the system at the moment) it doesn't reward it either.

    I think if you've had a certain period of time between infractions, you should automatically drop down a threshold.

    The whole infraction system is pretty farcical though tbh.

    Is there any reason that infraction emails are sent from the noone@cricketweb.net account? It's just a minor thing, but having them sent from moderators@cricketweb.net would make it easier for people to reply to.

    Agreed. I for one don't think this bloke is up to the task of dealing with infractions:
