To be fair, the Community Guidelines Table of contents at the end of the first posts lists: "Forum & General Rule Enforcement" which navigates you to the page where Ratings Abuse is discussed. The actual Rules page could be more clear, and if El Jefe and RDS choose to add more information to that page, power to them! :D

Limiting the admins to being able to enforce only rules that are clearly stated in detail makes it too easy for players to use loopholes and disrupt the game. Admins ability to easily stop inappropriate behavior when it happens, even if there isn't a clearly stated rule about that behavior, makes the game and forums more enjoyable for all of us.


He is not saying any thing about limiting any mod from making a decision only based on a rule in place. But in this case, and about rating abuse it is not clear what the rule is. There has been people with pages and pages of one star ratings and they have been cleared. This guy has a few a is warned. Why is he not allowed to have his own opinion as others are givin free passes.

So what is the rule ? How many do you have to prove are unjustifed to get a warning or Even punishment . So now if we are using to rating system shouldn't one un justified rating be abuse of the system as one infraction would be against the rules and you would get a warning and eclilate from there. This part is just a question to everyone not you D.

I honestly don't understand how ratings abuse is a punishable offense. Especially not for a global ban on the website. Sure if someone is always rating the same thing (beit 1 or 5), then block that person from using the ratings system. There is no reason to apply a website ban to someone who used a simple feature in a way not intended. If players can't give everyone 1's, then they shouldn't be able to rate everyone 5's either.


Just for clarification you won't get a website ban for ratings abuse. You can get ratings ban so you can't give ratings.

If this is the case, then I completely understand.

I still, personally, believe that the ratings are completely useless.

Ouch. That's not a fair statement. I try to be up-to-date and informed about rules and regulations on any website I go to.

Hence, I have looked at the Community Guidelines many a time.

In your position KA, you should be the last to generalize.

Lx

Haha! Except for Lindax! Good for you! Someone takes time to read the guidelines afterall. =D>

I agree with icepack that if someone was looking for rules on rating they would not be able to find it via the rules tab. This is one specific example of how the rules page could be improved.

I am not saying that the rules laid out in the forum are not good. I think that they should be more readily accessible and easy to navigate for the customers and people interested about what the rules really are. The expand/collapse function that is available for forum posts would be nice to see on the rules page so you could expand/contract the areas that you want to navigate and make it easier to navigate.

I also agree that the introductory letter as posted from the WOW page would be a good idea.

"Having stricter rules more clearly listed allows for people to use loopholes"
-Possibly but the rules could be amended to close these loopholes.
-Having less strict rules and more grey area allows for people to make decisions based on personal beliefs or wants as opposed to what should really be done in the effort of complete fairness and equality.

I also agree with whoever said I picked a poor example. I do want a discussion of the rules page and enforcement by mods overall. I have always thought that the rules page should be more clearly outlined this specific instance is just what caused me to make the op.
