Bug reports / Re: Infraction bugs

Ok let me take a stab at this.

User breaks the rules, this is an infraction

Now that the infraction has occurred, what action will be taken?
*Warn the user without further action
*If action is necessary, issue some sort of punishment

So now the matter is what do we call these things?
*I'd say a notice that comes with no punishments should be called a warning.
*If some sort of punishment is necessary issue a citation maybe.
*Along with the citation you can issue punishments or penalties i see these as actions that can be taken such as:
** issue points
** remove signatures
** suspend / temp ban
** ban permanently.....etc

So instead of saying what punishment should occur, say what action should be taken.

I'm quite comfortable with issuing infractions because that's how I knew it to be, but i kinda get the language hiccups as well.

Plugins / [Plugin] Re: Notifications system (1.0)

So I just recently got my first few notifications and I actually really like how it works,

I pretty much never check my email so I did not use the previous method of being notified by email of replies, PM's, etc. Needless to say that many things have gone missed by me because eventually I forget that i wanted to keep up with a particular topic, had I been notified via email it would have yielded the same result anyway.

Once the notification system was in use here I looked at the settings and chose to not be notified via email so that was great for me, no need to get emails I'll not see for months after they've stopped being relevant right. I have surprisingly been caught up on all the topics so no particular topic struck me as need to be notified so I sat jealously and patiently by reading how nice the system was and would ya know it @Arantor liked a post of mine and boom now I can see this thing in action from a true use case perspective without having being notified just for the hell of it. Then @Nao mentions me and I got that notification as well.

I gotta say great work here @Dragooon and guys. This is how I would love to have always received notifications on forums I visit.

I know this is still WIP but just a suggestion on the verbiage when viewing the infraction section in our own profiles.

"From here you can see every infraction issued for this member"
**Here you can see all infractions you have received**

"This person has not received any infractions before now."
**You have not received any infractions**

As it is now it reads as though a moderator/administrator is viewing a user's profile.

Im my mind I've always translated issuing an infraction as issuing a "notice of infraction" which tells he user what they did wrong and what action if any have been taken.

A warning I've always thought to be non-action response meaning: User A seems to be trolling a bit.. I'd issue an infraction in the form of a warning that carries no points or punishments.. just a quick note to say trolling is against the rules blah blah. This warning stays in the users infraction log so  another moderator can see this user has already been warned about trolling so future action may include point or other necessary actions.

Where was i going with this again, heck I cant even remember what prompted me to reply here.... :hmm:

Hmmmmm
Can't please them all comes to mind. I like what I've seen of Wedge so far. I've dug as deep as I could with the time I have available and I just love it. Being based of SMF and having some heredity is a good thing, it means I'm not learning  all over again like I did coming from vB.

I admittedly did not really try to break Wedge like I've done with the likes of SD ;) but thats because most of what I came across were already reported. I've also taken to keeping up as best I can with the mountain of changes being made. I'm about as eager as one can be to dig into the infraction system and moderation boards.

I'd much rather make the switch to Wedge with some familiarity of SMF and deal with the heritage being phased out over time.

Those sites are fine.
Those with access to the private alphas needed to make it known whether they would be installing inna live environment or not.

The news block is long since gone, the notes block (for general things an admin might want to tell mods about) is now full width, and the totality of prefs is that last block.
Ahhh I see, I was asking from looking at the alpha copy I have installed which still had the news in there. Nice to know its gone.

Makes sense to do it that way. So preferences will always be the last item on the page?

Will the news block be kept in the Mod Centre? I ask because i never really got the point of it.

After staring at it for a few more minutes I still not nothing, maybe in the morning I may see it differently. Ditching preferences does seem to make sense though.

Indeed it's quite nice being able to navigate such things via profile area.
