What to do now to lower the Warning Level?
- We have a system for automatically reducing Warning Levels. This means that now the User does not need to contact the Moderator to reduce it. The reduction will be made automatically after 90 days from the moment of its issuance.
- A 20% reduction in Warning Levels will now occur after 90 days. It is impossible to speed up this process. Moderators are no longer engaged in downgrades, the system keeps track of everything.
- If an erroneous increase in the Level of Alerts is detected, the Moderator can cancel his own, and the Supermoderator any last increase, and the system recalculates 90 days since the last correct increase in the Level of Alerts. The complaint mechanism for raising the Warning Level has not changed.
Do not break the rules. Nothing else. All terms are controlled by the automatic system, all its actions are logged and available to any Moderator for analysis.
When the system is started, those who did not violate the rules for 90 days will experience a 20% reduction in the Warning Level. For other offenders, the deadlines will be calculated by the system individually.Why 90 days, not 30, as before?
To reduce the number of violations. If you do not break the rules, you will not notice the difference.And if I ask the Moderator or the Super Moderator to lower the Warning Level to me earlier?
If the increase was made correctly, then your request will be ignored. Moderators and Super Moderators are no longer engaged in regular descent, only in case of erroneous actions.
