The system has been brought in to safeguard the forum and the members who use it.

This system could only be seen as 'bad' if your view of what the forum needs to live up to is wildly different to my own view.

i think it is going a bit far you have moderaters for a reason. If they see anything wrong then they should deal with it.

i dont think there is a need for a whole new system unless you notice things are getting out of hand

i think the forum is fine now atm, u get the occasional person that types txt tlk over the top which needs to be sorted but shortened words shouldnt be considered, as most people on here use shorter words.
as long as this system isnt really strict then i think its a good idea, if used correctly and not jumping on every word people say..

I think its a nice idea, but really over the top for a forum. In my opinion, the mods seem to be doing fine and I have not noticed anything get out of hand at all.

You will either get a warning or an infraction point.

Get 10 points and you get put on the trouble maker list, get 20 and you are banned.

Points last for 7 days,

It's a tool to help the moderators do their job. There are guides as to what is right and what is wrong. Members in the past have criticised some moderators for acting too harshly, or not harshly enough.

This system allows the same penalties to be given to all.

Personally I can't see whats wrong with swearing here, we're all old enough or we wouldn't be on a car forum?
Sounds like a case of net nanny gone mad.

Personally, I class that as spamming. Boasting your 'post count'.

If you don't have a 'valid' thing to say, don't say it.

Fair play, it is your forum and youve created a quality community, and so have we. So as someone who enjoys talkin to people on here and havin a laugh, as well as learnin stuff about saxos etc etc, I was just pointing out that it would be a shame to have everyone under surveilance so much.

You say most people wont be affected, but if we get in shizzle for swearing, then lots of people are going to be part of that including me. And if we arent allowed to insult others etc it just seems a shame to take away the oppertunities to have a laugh on here.

Like i just found a really old thread of a few lads stickin funny pictures up. Really cheered me up, but if we have this system implemented so severely, this wont be able to happen.

the swearing bit is abit OTT as the forum doesnt have excessive swearing, the occasional words come out but not much, forum is fine IMO (in my opinion)

I can't see what's wrong with swearing really, but I think it would help Police other issues on the forum.

More than likely nothing...

We are all adults (mostly) and use swear words from time to time.

The penalty is for 'inappropriate language'. This doesnt necessarily mean swearing.

Don't stress...
