Strike Policy

Throughout all of the orientation Materials, you probably noticed statements regarding "abuse of this privilege can result in your removal from the [You must login to view link] voluntary program" or some other variation of the same idea.

We do not like to remove tokens, but as the facilitators of the [You must login to view link] voluntary program, it is our responsibility to ensure that all Voobly staff members abide by the Code of Conduct by [You must login to view link] and that users, that violate intentionally the Code of Conduct are subsequently removed.

For the majority of abuses of [You must login to view link] staff member privileges, the staff member in question will be notified that he/she has been given a "strike" or warning. We feel this is the best thing to do given that at times, staff members break the CoC because they did not clearly understand the rules, and we feel that these staff members deserve a chance to get it right. If a certain number of strikes accrue within a certain amount of time, however, then the staff member is removed. After a set amount of time of "good behavior" strikes will no longer be associated with a particular staff account.

Please note, to best protect your staff member account, we strongly encourage you to keep records of the use of any staff member privilege. More specifically, it's best that the logs are kept for one month and that they have at least 50 lines of chat history preceding the use of a command. Additional information by way of screenshots is helpful as well. When in doubt, it is better to have too much information in your logs, than too little.

Why the focus on logging? Well, as needed, you may be asked to provide information pertaining to a specific use of a privilege. We receive numerous logs from users, some of which are not 100% accurate. We do our best to verify the concerns expressed, based on information that [You must login to view link] keeps, however that is not always enough. As such, additional information is sometimes needed. Bear in mind, as always, we will act on information that is verifiable. If you do not have logs of specific uses of staff member privileges, it could result in a strike. As such, we strongly recommend that protect your staff account and that you keep logs (50 lines of text or more) whenever you use a command on another user.

This process applies to actions on [You must login to view link] and [You must login to view link] services as well. [You must login to view link] staff accounts and player nicks will be subject to this process.

Of course, certain infractions will still result in an immediate removal of one's token. These infractions include:
Special thanks to all of the current [You must login to view link] staff members whose feedback helped to shape this process. Were it not for all of the thoughtful comments, we would not be where we are today. Thanks!
