Major changes in moderation policy
Many of these changes have been requested over the past few months and I've decided that now is the time to implement them. All of the following are effective immediately:
(1) When being sent a moderation PM, it will now come from an anonymous "moderator" account - This is to protect the moderators and to prevent drama, attacks on us, and allows us to do our work much more effectively under the guise of anonymity. The current method of appealing a moderation will not change. Simply PM a moderator to have your infraction reviewed.
(2) No market threads in the World Forums - I have deleted all marketing threads in the world forums at this point. Anyone else who posts one will get hit with a spam infraction. I will determine when to create the market boards.
(3) Infractions now have a three month lifespan - Infractions will always show in your profile, but after three months the infraction points will be subtracted away from your total. I'm not sure how this will affect those who have infraction points at the present moment, but all new infractions will have a three month lifespan.
