|In addition to the current forum Rules, I have introduced the new "moderation" option which means we can now punish people on the forum in many more ways.
Example being, if you get pestered by anyone by receiving totally unwanted (and considered "spam") PM's, then you simply forward the PM on to me, and I can then cut off the privileges of their sending PM's to all people except Administrators.
We can also now place people on "moderation" whereby if they get warned too often about the kind of posts they make (and don't take notice of the previous warnings s/he may be given), I can now place them under moderation so whenever they want to post a reply or even start a new topic on the forum, the users would see s/he tried posting but the actual message would only be displayed once I have "released" the post for public viewing.
These are only 2 of about 11 new options available to me, and they are extremely useful as they can be used to provide more suitable and possibly reasonable punishments for any offenders.
I may start working on a "time-release" script that will automatically release that persons' post if not checked within 3 days or so.... same thing could be used when setting up bans for people - will take some time but would enable the forum to run itself that little bit more than it currently is!
