Plagiarism Warnings?
« on June 8th, 2013, 01:43 AM »
I read that you were adding pre-determined sorts of warnings, such as signature violations and others.

Would you (or have you) added one for plagiarism? We run across that issue a lot on my forum and another one I help with.

Thank you.

No, but you can *trivially* add that yourself and word it to suit. That's the really neat part about it, you can configure the wording and the punishment for it in about 5 minutes.

Oh great. That will come in handy. :)

People constantly post rebuttals without linking to the original source. Man I can't stand it when they do shit like that.

That's why the whole warning system allows for pre-made templates, even down to pre-made punishments that can be easily fired off ;)

I for one would like some similar warnings, yeah, why not...
Or maybe, a more generic one about breach of copyright, I don't know.

I set up three or four exemplar wordings in the admin panel but it's easy to just make one to suit your forum, whether you want to do a modest warning or an instant ban. That's partly why I didn't do too much in the way of pre-set wording in the core, so that you can set it up to suit your community :)
