No, if you make a double post he will give you 6 infractions... But the lounge is for off topic disscussions, basically everything goes and its less moderated.

In all sincerity, what one infraction does more than anything is just let mods know that here is a member who posts 1 word posts, trolls, makes useless threads or whatever. Mods can easily see all members infraction history. If you ever gain 1 infraction to your account, that itself won't have any practical consequences for you unless you keep getting more. Think of them as warnings or consequence.

For, I think CoreyAllen's post was unnecessary but no harm in putting your views across.

Yeah I actually noticed that since Ive been doing those stupid avatar drawing things lol that my post count didnt move for a bit lol.

I understand why these have to be in place 'cos basically somebody could just do
H
E
L
L
O
all in seperate posts and get 5 posts as a result.
In all honesty the vast majority of people are on here to have in depth topical discussions about music & posts counts are really irrelevant (IMO).

I didnt really understand all this 'infraction' talk until you explained it here just now, I had the idea it was some kind of discipline though lol.

Its practically impossible/inapporpriate to post one word posts unless your trolling anyway.
I mean the least I could probably do is 'very good' or something & thats two words!

Also Toretrodden is alright, so I dont know why he being portrayed as some kind of infraction wielding forum demon.

By the way (Ive been wondering) is it not kind of annoying being a Mod on this forum? I mean with all the responsibilities in life with being a virtual moderator added to it.
I mean what if you dont want to go on your pc one day but you have to incase some troll is posting one words lol.

I think if most view you favourably except for a minority of rulebreakers who think of you as a demon, that's probably an indicator you're doing something right As moderators, we take freedoms away from people - the freedom to break the rules - and we punish. People subject to moderation don't like that so of course a mod won't be popular with everyone and I think that just comes with the job.

As for added responsibilities, it can certainly become tedious (not saying it is here, but I have experiences from elsewhere), but then having a large moderators team helps .. when you're off for a few days, someone else is there to pick up the slack and you do the same for them when they're gone.

Default Improvements Request

Active friends
when showing active users that are your friends maybe give them a different color to them instead of a "+" by their name.

Reasons why or why not we should do this?

Spell Check for Shoutbox.
Coryallen2, many other people, and myself, keep making spelling errors on the shoutbox then corecting ourselves filling up the shoutbox too much.


Reasons why or why not we should do this?

Tabs & Lyrics Fourm (possibly sub-forumed in artist corner)
i know there's a songwritng forum already there but thats not the same, many people here may need to request a tab, and it would help people who cover song (about 85% of the musicans on this site)

Reasons why or why not we should do this?

Reason why not : It might require fiddling with the source code of vbulletin which only the administrator can do and likely won't.

I object for my name to be displayed on a form concerning spelling errors, as I only have problems spelling "Squirrel" words that end in "ing" and my most famous: the word "like"
