Announcing "Time Out"

Dave the Cook

Recommended Posts

Effective immediately we are introducing a new moderation tool, the 24-hour suspension.


This replaces the Topic Watch function, which we lost a few upgrades ago. We will be using it to halt interactions that tend to escalate quickly. A suspension of this type will not be preceded by a warning or an attempt by staff to get a topic back on track: instead, a member will receive a notice that their account has been suspended for a period of 24 hours. This will be most likely to happen when the member posts a disrespectful personal challenge, personal insult, or deliberate distortion or ridicule of another member's post. It applies everywhere in eGForums.


eGForums is noted for its civility, and we believe there's no excuse to be rude or insulting.  This behavior will result in a 24-hour suspension. 


Please continue to use the report function to report potential issues, rather than escalating an engagement.
