Idea: Decouple bans from points and add more options for ban lengths.
Date: Pre-2014
Suggested by: Modmins
Defined by: ACWWFreakazoid, Amrasje, iolite, Jarikira, LadyKathryn, Nintendude64, SeaLion
Coded by: ACWWFreakazoid
Released: August 2017 [1.15.0]

Outline: The notification system is used for getting help from Modmins, and also to notify Members when a rule has been broken. For severe rule breaks, points are issued against a Member. Once a Member has accumulated 3 points they can be issued with a temporary ban from the site. Earning 5 points leads to a permanent ban.

Modmins have found that it is sometimes necessary to give a Member a short 24 hour ban. However, bans are meant to happen only when a Member has a certain amount of points. Previously, points would have been added in order to issue a ban. Modmins prefer that bans and points are separated so that a temporary ban can be given without adding to a Member's points.

While amending the system, it was also decided that it would help both Modmins and Members to have more choices in ban lengths. The following ban lengths will come into effect:

1 day
3 days
1 week
2 weeks
1 month
3 months
6 months
1 year
3 years
Permanent


The above will replace the following:

24 hours
48 hours
3 day
5 day
1 week
2 weeks
3 weeks
Permanent
