When are they switching to the new forums? Will this be soon or just something planned in the distant future?

Max,

What effect will these changes have regarding two accounts out of one home? My brother and I are both registered users and I have submitted an email with our info to avoid a ban a year ago. Will we have to resubmit our info if we keep the same account names?

from what i get it looks like unless they lift the ban on two accounts for a short time for the registration one of the accounts will most likely be banned for the time being.

We are not banned. I was concerned with the changes regarding the detection software they use to avoid being banned.

It may take a little extra work to get both registered, like the first time, but we will certainly have no problem with people that have legitimate multi-accounts in a household.

Thanks for the response, Kyle. When the change comes, I will make sure my account is active and then submit a new email with our info.

The long expiry dates are to keep users from 'playing the system'. We found with the old system certain users would rack up enough infractions to get a day or two ban, let the points 'cool off' if you will due to short expiration times, then do it all over again. This lead to several users getting a slap on the wrist over and over and over again. The long expiration times give more weight to the infraction system, whereas a short expiration makes it into a little game.

Why does this have a longer expiry time than harassment or reposting deleted messages?
It doesn't.

Some of the stuff is already in effect, such as the new rules and infraction system.

As for the forums, they're coming at the same time as the account management system, which is coming at the same time as the OR. Unfortunately an exact date is impossible, but we're trying to have it all done as soon as possible.

Basically you just want to get rid of some people and have no real reason to, ok sounds good.

Aslo YES it does, 6months vs 3months, anyone can read and confirm what it says in the post? Apparently you can't.

lol what is this?

Seeing as a you can't edit posts in here this is what I actually meant, however the point is valid, why would that warrant less of an infraction time? Somebody trying to sell something on this site.

Not a huge fan of the vB4 look, but it's definitely a step up from vB3 security wise. I managed to try it out myself locally, and, for the most parts, the ACP is exactly the same.

The look is only as good as the theme designed. The default look is bland and boring, but we won't be sticking to the default.
