35. Automatic Reduction of Warn Levels
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

What to do now to lower the Warning Level?
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.

Is it possible to prohibit automatic merging of two sequentially generated messages?

As far as I remember, there are 2 ways:
1. Use a tag. The new post should be entirely inside this tag.
2. Attach a dummy file to the 1st post. Then it can be deleted.

We have implemented a forum on the possibility of generation of QR-codes for all of the links that appear in posts.

What does this give?
You are currently viewing forum from a desktop computer and find the desired link to download the file or the necessary information that you need to open a mobile device. You can go a long way, and download to your computer, then upload the file to your mobile device, and can be set once a special program for reading of QR-codes and quickly receive a link directly to the mobile device, without having to dial with the link itself.

How it works?
1. Includesforum settings function "Display QR codes for links in the message text"
2. Mounted on a mobile device a special program for reading of QR-codes.
3. Press on the icon next to the link - opens a QR-code.

Attached Image

4. Run the installed program for reading codes on the mobile device and pointing the camera at the opened QR-code. The program recognizes the link and offers to skip over it.

Attached Image

5. You confirm the transition, and then open your browser and takes you to a page link, or if you are authorized to immediately begin downloading the file.

Attached Image

Recommended programs for reading of QR-codes

Windows Mobile:i-nigma
Android:Barcode scanner

This function works only in the full skins, naturally. In the mobile the skins do not, in order to save traffic, and the need for this.

UPD: The problem with the odd "// forum" resolved. To update the script, you need to clear your browser cache. The script must re-boot.

Suggestions for use of QR-codes - welcome :)
