My point, yes.Mods don’t educate or change behavior. They say “quit being dumb”, whether it’s points or pms.
When it gets to the point that a mod has to step in, it’s already too far gone - shouldn’t have occurred in the first place.
Strikes, points, whatever, don’t be a jerk is the objective.
What I'm simply trying to say is there's no need to overcomplicate things. I was thinking a list of 'offenders' and number of strikes can be kept in a sticky in the moderators forum and be quickly consulted. Then again, if the number of users is too large and so is said list, it might indeed be easier for a Xenforo algorithm to paste an X annotation on a member's profile, seen only by staff.
