Looking in the Admin Control Panel I can't even see where such an option might be, it's certainly not a setting that mods can change, and it has never been active since I've been a mod, so if it ever was it must have been _way_ before your time, although I may misremember whether you had a previous life under a different name.
It was briefly activated perhaps 5 or 6 years ago. Only for a few weeks and then turned off again. Any mods put on ignore then are still on ignore now.

Sounds about average. Tom is responsible for about 50% of the groans on the whole forum.
I would say that is a conservative figure. Can any kind mod with access to the stats please let us know the total percentage ratio of forum Groans (given) that Tom is responsible for since he first joined?

It was active for a very brief time in 2019 iirc, and yes, it was during a previous life. Pretty sure EB enacted it at the request of another member, member left, and it got turned off. So yeah, you were a mod when it happened.

Tomís groan button is next to the one that summons the nurse when itís time for a stroll with the zimmer frame.

Re: Infractions and Warnings.

Do the infractions also offer the chance of removing a few thousand points of reputation?

Re: Infractions and Warnings.

Received my first ever infraction this morning. Fair enough; if you read my post in a certain way, it could come across as offensive.

What I found odd though was that the same post was deleted by 2 separate mods. No infraction from the first mod but 4 hours later, the post was again deleted by a 2nd mod and an infraction was given. How's that work? How does something get doubly deleted.

Using accents to put in swearwords (and strong ones at that) that you know would be automatically redacted implies you were perfectly aware of the offensive nature of what you wrote.

The first mod hasn't got round to using the infractions yet, but the second one thought one was warranted, so had to un- then re-delete your post in order to apply it. Posts are never permanently deleted by us, so they're still there for mods and admins to see.

So, accents are completely no-no but acronyms are Ok? Like FFS?

ETA:
Just to clarify, I'm referring to posts like this, which the poster keeps downplaying defending.

Isn't an EF virgin someone who has never ever had a single one of their posts deleted by Ace1?

The automoderation appears to work fine, though. You canít say <automoderated>, <automoderated> or <automoderated> these days.
