View Full Version : What's A "Warning Point"??....

I'm confused by the terminology of this word, and I'd like to know where it originated, and by who it was introduced to the Finheaven web site....

My reasoning is simple, and I'll explain, first though I'd like to post the true definition of the word "Warning".

warn·ing ( P ) Pronunciation Key (wôrnng)
n.
An intimation, threat, or sign of impending danger or evil.

Advice to beware.
Counsel to desist from a specified undesirable course of action.
A cautionary or deterrent example.
Something, such as a signal, that warns.

adj.
Acting or serving to warn: a warning light; warning words.

Now, not anywhere in that definition does it mention actually handing down punishment during the act of warning. Giving someone "points" is basically doing just that, so the "warning" part actually means nothing when all is said and done....

My beef with iFINS is history, and I'll get over it, no biggie, but my beef with this "warning point" policy you guys use still bothers me quite a bit. Maybe you should re-name it to something more fitting, like say, "violation points". You know, something that reflects the actual actions being taken in this process you use....

When you put the word "warning" into the mix, and yet still proceed to punish in the process, makes no sense to me at all. A warning is a warning, and punishment is punishment. You can't have it both ways....

Just a "suggestion".

How do you know I'm the ONLY ONE???....

Maybe there are many others who feel the same way I do, but are too afraid to speak out about it. You basically know squat, that's what you know....

It's my beef, so it doesn't involve you personally. On top of that it's just a suggestion I'm making, nothing more. Maybe if they change it to what it actually is, people wont get confused when they're being punished / warned at the same time.....

Thanks for sharing though....

It's pretty simple really...The "impending danger" is, you being banned. The points are a "warning" that you're getting closer to the impending danger.

No punishment was given to you.

No punishment was given to you.

Then I shouldn't have any points on my record should I???....

The points alone are punishment. End of story....

This place sure doesn't seem to be short of any ********{no names}these days...

Everywhere I look, more and more are starting to come out of the woodwork. It's like an ********{no names} virus has hit Finheaven, and it's spreading like a wildfire. Man, whatever happened to someone just having an opinion? One without prejudice or ridicule?? It seems like whatevet one person posts, is another posters personal nightmare....

You guys need to lighten up. Afterall, how could any of you know what I'm feeling personally? Yeah, so I feel disrespected, and yes I feel like a cry baby writing all of my recent complaints to the Admin, but maybe that just my way of dealing with it. It's not your problem.....

You guys{no names} can call me whatever you want if it makes you feel somehow superior, but in the end, what have you really done other than make a new enemy???....

Look, the site has rules, you are a constituent of the site, you violated the rules, they imposed the punishment, which really isn't a punishment at all. If you keep straight, there's no problem. You're no worse in anyone's eyes because you have a point. Actually, no one would know if you hadn't announced it to the world since we can't see who has what.

Maybe I didn't want my record tainted for something as ticky-tack as posting in the wrong forum....

I'm sensitive because I feel like I was singled out, and made an example of in this process. If that's true or not we'll never know, but that's the way I feel. I can't win this war of words with the Finheaven Admin, I know that. But I'm sure as hell not going to bow down to something that I feel isn't a justifiable punishment{like simply posting in wrong forum}...

Just let it die bro. The point will expire in 30 days and your points will be clean, thats the cool thing about how this system is set up. Even if you get points for somthing minor if you keep you nose clean for little the points will soon expire and it all goes away. :wink:

A: Youre certianly not the first, or only member to recieve points.
B: They expire in 30 days
C: we've been down this road extensively since the system was introduced almost 2 weeks ago.
D: It's not a matter of "bowing down" it's a matter of following the TOS.
E: I think you've made your point...three threads created now, all because one of yours was moved?

Let me see if this helps. You are not being singled out. I have a warning point that no one knew about untill now except for myself and the mod squad.
Second off and this is a lot more important. When you are on this sight you are not in public you are on private property as a guest. This is no different than if you come to visit me at my house.At my house I set the rules.If you wanted to come over and watch a game,have a few beers that's all cool.
If you want to smoke a joint.THAT AINT HAPENING. If you go to youre house and smoke pot that aint none of my business.But no one is smoking weed at my house. I pay the mortgage.I set the rules.
At youre house you pay the bills you make the rules. If and I don't know if you do or not but if you want to smoke something at youre house that is none of my business.

O.K. all this is pretty clear and simple right? right.

Now where we are at right now is not public property.
This is private property. It is owned by Andrew Tatum. He owns the domain www.finheaven.com He pays monthly hosting fees for the server that all this crap we post lives on. You are in some one elses home if you dont like the rules why do you keep coming here?
As far as youre atacks on infins goes he is one of the people that A.J. apointed to help run this sight. He is also the only person on this sight that I have personaly met and he is realy a pretty good guy and the fact that you are still able to come here and post at all proves that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now you are a guest at some one elses home try to act like one.


Mines still better :wpat:

Blitz if this is such a problem how come you didn't settle this in a pm to admin, and take care of this one on one? Bro if you bring this up in a pm, it doesn't come accross the way some people are perceiving it. I hope that you can put this behind and move forward Bro.:wink: Enjoy the great family here on the board.:D

Blitz, I understand the principle for which you are fighting, but when it comes down to brass tacks, the points are a warning no one else sees. Your record isn't tainted, because no one else knows your point status.

Now if you want to argue specific offenses are not worth receiving points, I'm down with that, but the idea that points are, in themselves punishment doesn't hold much water for me.

Now of course, if you brought Lacuna Coil back into your signature, I'd be printing the "Free BLITZKRIEG" T-shirts as we speak. :evil: :lol:
