    I'm new to this forum however I have been using FA for years and I was just wondering why the admins are so strict in cases of certain mistakes and they do not forgive them even when the error is fixed.

    I'm a new user, too. But, I think it serves as a deterrent to future mistakes. The admins don't want "trouble users" on FA, so eventually expunging bad behavior could lead to more incidents. I'm sorry if it's a case of genuine mistakes, though. But, if I were you, I'd make sure that you're familiar with the site's rules, so that you don't make any more mistakes in the future.

    It was not me at all it was someone i was watching a rule got slightly changed and he was not aware of it until after he had posted it and even though he hadn't broken any rules for years they said one more mistake and they would ban him not even attempting to give a warning other then a 7 day suspension

    In that case, I'd recommend that he appeal that strike.

    Being familiar with the site rules won't really do you much. Depending on how much certain administrators dislike you they'll still put strikes against you for the simplest of things. Like I'm talking a simple "wut" is enough

    What would you have to even do to get on the admins' bad sides?

    Idk but my friend claims they dislike him so much hes not going to even try to appeal because they had just ignored him the previous times he had tried

    He must've done something to ROYALLY piss them off, then. I can't think of any other reason why they'd be so hostile. As for me, I'd try to stay under the radar when it comes to admins, since they can ruin your life. As the old saying goes, "Choose you battles." Not all fights are worth the price that is paid.

    well it doesn't help that most of the admins don't listen and are not that active at all and if they are it is with themselves and not other peoples matters

    It all depends on who handles the case. There's one I know in particular who will slam you for just about anything

    My friend probably got that admin then x.x it would be just his luck
     
  17. FluffyShutterbug

    I guess that he should try all of them, then. One of them is bound to be a good person (hopefully).
    That's scary...

    more then likely not most admins are people who join up because of the paycheck and don't really care if there was a decent admin i would be surprised genuinely while i understand FA is a large site the last time my friend messed up was four years ago i mean there has to be some form of a forgiveness policy or something

    I don't think there is. Being the anxious person that I am, I usually familiarize myself with the rules and stuff. I don't think that strikes are ever expunged.

    Pretty sure they don't get paid, but I could be wrong

    If it makes you feel any better, so long as it's not blatant racism, discrimination or whatnot then you can probably go for 8 or 9 strikes since I'm on my 7th or so

    I wouldn't be so cavalier about that. I think you're only allowed a maximum of 7 strikes before your account is deleted.

    Yeah, no, Sergei. Personal opinions about users do not play into administrative action taken. Follow the rules and you're fine. Break them, or deliberately and persistently push the line, and you may not be.

    Note that I have no idea who you're talking about, so this is completely general information: when someone tells you they had action taken against them for "no reason" or "because admins hate me", it may be time to consider that you only know what your friend is telling you.

    That would actually be likely to end him up in more trouble. Contacting staff directly about site matters or opening multiple tickets for the same issue violates COC, and I can't think of any other way to "try all of them." Honestly in the vast majority of cases you'll get the exact same call regardless of what staff member handles your particular issue; admin discretion primarily comes in when you're dealing with edge cases.

    Oh, you got me, I'm totally on staff for the juicy $0 paycheck and the privilege of having people throw random unfounded accusations in my general direction on a regular basis. :V

    Seriously, though, we're volunteers doing what we do for love of the community.

    We consider account history, including time elapsed since last offense, when issuing penalties. Often this means that very old offenses "expire", but there may sometimes be reasons to escalate an offense despite time having passed, so it's something that's to some extent done on a case by case basis. It is, however, always your responsibility as a user to keep up to date on policy changes (which are announced via site newsposts).

    Not really, no. Offense levels are covered at the end of the AUP/COC documents. Offense levels do not, however, stack between different rules violations.

    I dunno, I got infractions for saying things like "wut" and "why" so I'd say that there was some personal level of dislike towards me.

    That's not counting being pegged for phishing despite doing nothing of the sort and even being told by the person who did it that I didn't do it
    Useful to know though so thanks

    Whether or not there is, that has no bearing on the infractions in question. If you don't break rules, you won't get in trouble, end of story.
    That matter is closed and over with. Please let it lie. I have no desire to go through the song and dance of having to suspend you for dragging out old grievances.

    I'm just saying that as much as you want to believe it, personal bias did play a role in some of them. Not all, but some
