    let me elaborate.

Maybe if each time we have to Pm them, a square comes with it, and 5 squares means you can't post... Maybe our warning PMs would get their "power" back.
    You have a problem, you have a solution. If your current tactics are not working, as a administrator it is your job to find some that do. This box thing doesnít let just the person know that there on a list, but it lets everyone else know. If this thing ever becomes serious, this would serve as a little public slap on the wrist, a point of embarrassment, wich would be further motivation not to get on it. Does this mean I advocate publicly spanking bad members? Of course not, but it would be evidence every time they look at this that there is a list and everyoneís keeping track. I have never been in big trouble here, but I have not heard a whisper that there was a consistent POLICY for misbehaviors, and things are allowed to go on with simply verbal PM warnings and such until a mod runs out of patience and the person is banned. I could be wrong, of course, not knowing the inner workings, but from where I stand, I donít think so. I donít believe that if we got serious about this ozzy would just use these as jokes. It may be fun, but we can live without them.

    Keep in mind this is not a lectue, but things from my point a veiw. This is how it is as i see it, atleast. But you ultimatly know whats best, and i dont.
    that makes no logic

    Back when i joined TF, I always thought the squares were given to people that were on their way to become mods. I believed that those people were granted pre-mod abilities, like locking posts, ect.

    Until today (reding this post), I never knew what they meant...

    I know how to remove them.

    Finch- that sounds about right. We really really try not to ban people and such. And I'm not saying we're GOING to start using the squares as I said above. I was simply saying if we needed to, it just really wouldn't be "available" to us since they've been used for fun for so long. That's all.
