Warnings & Suspensions#
The warning system allows you to create pre-defined warnings that can be issued against users who behave in an undesirable manner. Based on defined warning points, automatic suspensions can also be applied - such as a temporary suspension of the user account.
Each warning generates a fixed number of warning points. These points are added to the points account of the respective user when a warning is issued. If a user reaches a specified point value, predefined suspensions can be applied automatically.
When issuing warnings against a user, predefined warnings can be used or alternatively an individual warning can be created.
To create a predefined warning, go to the admin panel on Users → Warnings → Predefined Warnings and click on the button Add Predefined Warning.
The following input fields are available when creating predefined warnings as well as individual warnings:
|Title||Enter a title for the warning.|
|Points||Set the warning points to be credited to the user's points account.|
|Expires||Specify the expiration date of the warning. When the warning expires, the defined warning points are deducted from the user's points account.|
|Reason||Specify a reason for the warning.|
Suspensions are automatically applied as soon as the defined value of warning points is reached by a user.
To create a predefined suspension, go to Users → Warnings → Predefined Suspensions in the admin panel and click on the button Add Predefined Suspension.
The following input fields are available when creating a predefined suspension:
|Title||Enter a title for the suspension.|
|Points||Define the warning points at which this suspension should be applied.|
|Expires||Specify the expiration date of the suspension. After the expiration date, the defined type of suspension is withdrawn.|
|Suspension Type||Select the type of suspension to be applied once the specified points are reached.|
