We didn't resort to this - the feature came as part of the upgrade to the new server. We didn't even know about it until someone got put in time out.
I was simply explaining that the feature exists and how it works. Nothing more.
When someone reports your post we have the option of sending a warning along with whatever we do with the content be that delete , edit or leave it as is. Five warnings in a ~30 day period gets you a two day time out.
Yes , for the most part this is a well behaved bunch here on TT …. but there are those who in the past have pee'd in the pool. This feature gives the mods a tool to deal with those who cant disagree and remain civil.
As I stated earlier , I haven't sent 5 warning points total since the feature went live. So like @powda
said above …. relax. No one's getting banned for business as usual ….
