Forum Security is a new user group with administrative privilaeges, whose main job it is to rid the forums of n00bs and bad posts. We regulate the member warning system, and enforce the rules. The idea came about because admins don't have enough time to dedicate to protection, cleanup and discipline, especially cleanup.

Couple of weeks ago, some idiot decided to register with 20-odd accounts and a handful of bad posts, all from different proxies and therefore different IPs. Only myself, spasmodially insane, and sky^ were there to prevent it. The most we could do, as moderators (sky = super mod) was to suspend each account he made, and delete any posts he made. We noted his IP addresses until Millermagic came on and let us into the admin CP to ban his ass. Forum Security is the answer to this - a select few members will be given this job, so there will be 24-hour access to somebody with heightened permissions and responsibility.

Of course Chris cant give admin access to all mods, so it is a tricky situation, and we think this should help. Its also near enough to one month since the new warning system was implemented. Upon review, we have found that the six-star warning system was slightly inefficient, with warnings being at 17/33/50/67/83/100 %, and each warning not quite constituting a block on the chart. We have changed it for there to be five warnings, of 20/40/60/80/100 %, which is one block on the display. We are also in the process of replacing the blocks with wanted stars.

Hope that answers everything
