I totally support what you are doing.....I tend to be a hardass sometimes when it comes to personal responsibility, hence my post. Whatever you decide, I think it is a good thing. I do think a notice would be a good thing so that all members can expect something. Also good to advise any new/perspective members. Thanks to all the moderators for what they do.....I think the time you spend to make this the great forum that it is, is sometimes taken for granted.
+1 for personal responsibility and for the Moderators.

I like it.

While initially it seems you wouldn't need to allow so many warnings, after thinking about it a bit, the numbers seem right. I might be inclined to make the expiration more like 30 or 60 days rather than 7 though.

As you said, we don't want one warning to be that big of a stick. Anyone can have a bad day and post something they later regret. You're just looking for patterns of behavior.

Accumulating 7 warnings would also make the "bigger" decision a no-brainier. That's a pattern twice over.

Either way, if it makes your lives easier, I say do it.

Thanks for all you folks do - and thanks for putting up with us.

What they all said. Look, @captras and I may be more harsh (on days). But for me the bottom line is the same: if this makes your life easier, is reasonable (as you folks in my experience always are), and respects you folks as Administrators, I am all for it. I am completely serious that this is your house, I appreciate it, and respect it. I do not mean to suggest your thinking regarding the number of 'strikes' is wrong--in point of fact, seeing @Julian 's post, it is probably right. More to say--this is good, and if you wanted or needed to go farther to keep things afloat, that is fine too. Float on folks. And thanks to @Administrative !

I like the intent of the Warning system and know (and trust) the moderators to revise it as we have more experience with it. I know I’ve probably said things while in a particular mood that I regretted later. I really value all of you in moderating and forum leadership roles. This is a great forum and well run. Thanks!

Looks like a bunch of nonsense to me and should be removed.
