I have seen in other forums a system of warning people by using the point system implemented into the forum. I have brought this up before in random threads but i think it deserves some due notice. The idea is instead of banning people for every little thing they do or just give warning that no one will listen to, a mod/admin/supervisor can deduct a set amt of points or a quantity equivalent to the damage done.
EX: A user has been caught spamming. A mod fines him 5% of his total bank and sends him a small PM saying why he was fined and how much he was fined. If the user is caught again then he is fined 10% of his total. And finally on his third strike banning can be issued.
The great thing about this is it DOES follow the quick justice policy. A problem has occurred and it is dealt with immediately. QJ is a community filled with people that care more about their points than being banned honestly. This system allows people to realize they are doing something wrong and allows them to change immediately instead of a month of waiting.
This doesn't mean that banning should not be used. Im sure under certain circumstances fining of points would not solve the problem and a ban should be issued, but recently i have seen alot of bans that truly weren't ban worth due to the quick justice policy. Then once they are back all they can do is complain. At least with points there is realization of the problem, notice that mods will do something to solve the problem, and so they have time to change.
What do you guys think, please no stupid 'omg don't let them touch my points!!one1!'
I honestly think this would work out very well and keep qj under control while also keeping a sense of fairness in all bans. Who can say their ban was unfair after being warned and fined twice?
