Do not post any pictures right now, It has to be done in an organised manner. Idea is to use this as a guide line.

Merged with TBHP suggestions thread

Default Make Team-bhp much better

This is waht i was thinking yesterday and it made sense.This post is for all the bhpians :

We have members on our forum which are banned for some reasons or another.Well as far as my thoughts are concerned.How do we get to know that those who have been banned are not registered again and are still posting on the forums.Cant we have more security features as we have on mails or some other sites where in a person trying to re-register himself with the same contact details (telephone,residential address or by the same e-mail id) are not allowed.If something can really be done like this we will actually get to know how big is our family and the quality will be maintained more.

I dunno how much sense does it make but reviews...


Thank you,
Nikibusa.

Since you brought the topic up - at least one of our new members have a posting style that is remarkably like that of one banned recently, who has also tried to return with other new IDs. The time of posting and the frequency are pretty similar, though the tone of the posts is quite different.

I have a different suggestion here. Most of the forums I am a member of has the same layout and format. cant we change the format of the website???

Have a look at notebookforums.com and howardforums.com to see how similar they are.

Nikibusa,

Your suggestion about the banned members is good and important as you said.

However, keeping trace of the banned members and blocking them from re-signup through uniqueness of contact details, email id's is practically impossible.

The only way some kind of filtration can be obtained is IP tracing...something like having an admin reporting kind of functionality which would show up IPs most commonly used by members to sign-in and lookout for common IPs for those suspected.

It may be well active too and the moderators may be having access to such a feature.

As long as they learnt their lesson and mend their ways, lets forgive and forget.

I agree to you completely,and also the last two paragraph is very much to be noted

but i fail to understand why we should not let someone re register with a diffrent nick after being kicked out...i am sure the person will become cautious when posting after being kicked out once...after all we need the opinions of the maximum number of people possible on the forum.

if i am not mistaken, there is an ip trace system used by the moderators...but as mpower said if they have mended their ways lets forgive and forget.

I would like to ask the Mods for technical change-
Is it possible to have a marker against threaads that you have previously posted in ??
Most forums have that, so that you can track and reply
In the same way that we have new post marjkers etc, for example if we had a blue dot against a thread in which we have posted in it would be of great help

I would suggest having a post where the reason for a member being banned is displayed. So that others dont end up doing the same mistake.

I just want to remind you guys about the way it works -

First, when the mod team notices a member who is not in line with the way TBHP is supposed to work, they are watched closely for the next few days, or next step right away if they are really terrible (we have had a few of these, but they are wiped off within the hour so most members wouldn't know.)

The "report bad post" feature also plays an important part in alerting the mods to the posts that other members feel are not in line with TBHP's posting standards. (however please use this feature only for posts that need to be URGENTLY edited/deleted since when this feature is used an email is sent to all 9 moderators)

After the new member gets used to the forum, if they still dont settle down into the standards quite clearly set by TBHP, they are given a warning, stating why their actions are not within tolerance, and what should be done to change that.
A series of warnings may continue over time depending on how the member's habits change (or not) after the warnings.

If there is no satisfactory improvement in the member's behavior, the moderation team (comprising of 9 people) takes a joint decision, and as soon as a majority is reached, the action of banning the member is carried out.

A lot of thought and consideration goes into decisions like these, and almost all the time the member base does not get to see the interactions and warnings between the members in question and the moderators, not to mention the posts that are edited or deleted in order to keep this forum's quality level. Based on that i personally feel that its not possible for most members to truly judge when it comes to matters like these.

We would rather have 400 members and a top quality forum than 410 members and a rubbish forum. (however those 10 members are more than welcome to just read.)

I hope this clarifies things.
