How would we justify different strikes for different people?

OK, one possible suggestion comes to mind:

Have 'warnings' + 'temp ban'+ 'perma ban' (i.e, a more lenient approach) for people who default on the technical aspects of the Review Game: sub par reviews, non repayment of reviews owed, reviewing the wrong people, etc.

Have a harsher sentencing for people who offend RGers in general. Bigotry/douche bag-ery/ extreme, unpardonable rudeness. To me, this seems to be a worse offense.

Of course, I can't seem to remember people who've been banned because of the second reason. There was someone called Onar way back during the initial phases, if I remember right- but no one I seem to have had a conversation with.

Nonetheless, throwing in my 2 cents.

I agree with the point that letters of apology can be faked and will not necessarily be sincere.

Personally, I think maybe there should be two different systems. I think for blatant spamming or racist or cursing, etc. then temporary ban as a warning and perma-ban if it happens again.

I think in a lesser situation like statements that are maybe ambiguous or just sort of rude/mean then a warning would be best first. Then I still say perma-ban because I think a warning is still a warning and doing it again is a blatant disregard.

I just feel that even temporarily banning someone for something that is a lesser offense doesn't seem fair.

This is just in reply to the original post, not looking at the replies yet.

I'm thinking B for the basic but with a blend of C and D. Basically a three-strike system, but 1. Warning 2. Week-long ban 3. Month-long ban 4. Perma-ban. The "summary" always seemed a bit silly to me--if the person's just bent on being rude, or desperate to get back for any reason, it's so easy to BS with no assurance of improved behavior. I think the bans in themselves will give both parties (the banned person and whoever they were being rude to) time to cool down and the banned party time to consider if they really want to be at the RG. I think progressive punishment is effective in that. Warning is fair. Week says "we're serious." Month says "you'd better consider if you really want to be here."

From there, I'd say that not all people should get all three warnings, working with F a bit. I'd rather not leave an ambiguous "make the punishment fit each specific crimes." Make levels of severity, such as 1. Occasionally rude, at least one member has taken offense 2. Frequently rude, several members have taken offense. 3. Almost always rude/offensive/generating large-scale disturbances (such as pokinbigfire) 4. No hope for redemption (such as Darker Hershey, i.e. known troll/trouble maker. It would make things cleaner. Asking "how bad are they" is vague, but this has limited and specific levels to work from. (EDIT: Sorry, that was unclear. Numbers correspond to those above, i.e. level 2 severity starts with a level 2 punishment.)

I don't like E. It becomes too much of a personal attack with people actually voting against someone. It's one thing if someone will say out in the open that they dislike a person with a username attached, but it doesn't sit right with me to have everyone judging the person behind their back.

OT 101 Name Suggestions:

It's that time again. :D

My ideas:

OT 101: Dalmatian Plantation (Named for the end song in the 1961 Disney movie 101 Dalmatians)

OT 101: Intro to Awesome (After the university course-naming tradition that 101 is generally an intro course...and, of course, the general awesomeness of the RG)

or maybe Intro to Awesomeness. Up to you guys.

3/29/2011 . Edited 3/29/2011 #466

what about like...playing off of Lyra,

OT 101 - Introduction to Reggy Studies

or like,

OT 101 - Introduction to Review Love

XD?

3/29/2011 #467
Nesasio

Hah, I totally thought of Intro to Review Love but wasn't sure.

Though I had 'Intro to Review Lovin'' just 'cause it's more fun. In my opinion.

Edit: Well, since the OT is closed now, I'll put in my vote for Off Topic: Intro to Awesome

3/29/2011 . Edited 3/29/2011 #468

I vote Intro to Awesome!

@Review Squad - I can't recall what I've PMed Mini, but I'm on for the Review Squad, and I'd like my reviews to go to Barbie Monster http://www.fictionpress.com/u/763702/BarbieMonster (yeah, not even attempting HTML).

(Suggestions is so dead D:)

@Nicknames list -

As I'm coming back to the RG after a while away and trying to re-learn everyone's nicknames, I'm realizing that the nicknames list in RTF is terribly outdated. Unless there are any strong objections, I'd like to take on the project of revising that. The help of some regulars would be awesome, too, if anyone's up for it.

All right, looks like it's time to name OT 102!

Just so everyone knows, I'm going to bed now and it's my OT to make, so six hours to come up with a name XD

Empire State Building has 102 floors. OT - Going Up!

-- could also do something about King Kong for this one, since he climbed it. OT - So Appealing! (appealing? a-peeling? bananas?? never mind. haha!)

unfortunately, that's all I've got. XD

I vote for Going Up, if it's any help.

Going along with King Kong:

It Was Beauty That Killed the OT

Nobelium is atomic number 102:

Don't Go All Nobel on Me

102 is 1100110 in Binary Code apparently.

So I suggest this: 0101010001101000011010010111001100100000011010010111001100100000001100010011000000110010 (Translation: This is 102)

Or this:

In an Ethiopian apocryphal book, named "The Wisdom of Sibyl", it is written: "102 years and 40 months had been passed since that she interpreted the dreams and gave a senses in all extraordinary things of her time".

So I suggest THE WISDOM OF SIBYL

Also... the word MERCY is used 102 times in the Bible.

But here's the best I think.

I keep getting 102 Data Error sometimes when I refresh FP... so I think we should appease the Data Error Gods to show us MERCY by naming the new OT...

MERCY OF THE DATA ERROR GODS!

5/19/2011 #479
Rainbow35

Since there doesn't seem to be a new OT yet, I vote for Mercy of the Data Error Gods! :D
