You forgot the "I don't like the idea, except for when it applies to me" poll option.



 

Good one, Alchy! :P

In all seriousness, I'll run the poll till the end of the month!



                                                                                                                                            

No, that's what a history is for.

If the one time offense is minor and from a long time ago, that shouldn't be taken into account for future progressive bans anyways.
If a user needs a new warning to remind them for a similar offense from 4 years ago, then they should get a new warning. The result would be the same regardless if said user had a warning in their history or not.

The history gives context. If you can pick and choose which infractions are considered for removal, that can open a new can of worms

^ This is pretty much it.

I voted yes in the poll but after this post consider it a no. I didn't really get what 'deleting' meant in this scenario, I assumed not doing it meant that users would still be having their moderations judged on old mod history. As long as that's not the case, it's better to keep it around imo.



Interesting responses so far.



                                                                                                                                            

What are the benefits of removing moderations from a user's history? People have voted for it in the poll, but no one has written a post supporting it yet.

Im not 100% how the moderation process works but say you joined in 2008 and were a bit of a trouble maker and had over a dozen moderations in the first year then you went 9 years without a moderation but had a bad day and crossed the line getting moderated. Would those moderations from nearly a decade ago affect the ban length?

It's like speeding tickets, I believe they stay on your record for 3-5 years depending on the state so a  couple speeding tickets in 2011 arent going to make your punishment more severe if you get one in 2019.

📣 *NEW POLL*


Question — Should mild infractions from years past be considered for removal?

This is something I asked the mod team a few months ago, but now I'd like to hear from you! Should we consider old infractions, such as Sig Length, mild Flaming/Trolling, or Spamming for removal if the user has improved? Why would it work? Why wouldn't it? 

Only if the line is clear and concise I, would start by removing warnings where there hasn't been any more infractions since they were warned. When it comes to bans my take on it would be link it to good behaviour so that the longer the time from your last ban the further back your bans get removed , now I know this is harder to implement than what's been mooted, I would also like to see a system where extra time is added for each consecutive ban .

In most cases, no. We follow a progressive system (can be overridden for severe infractions). Like you noted for a speeding ticket, much of the time, after some years have passed, they won't count against you. You can also have them expunged in certain situations. That's basically our poll. Should moderations be expunged?

I think so. Obviously depends on the severity of the moderations, how long ago they happened and users recent behavior
