No mod has answered this yet, So I will save the day! And say " 101 warnings". (May not be legit)

I haven't had my account deleted yet so you should be good for awhile.

There is really no hard set rule for this, it depends on what is being posted and how bad it is and how often. Deleting an account is something we never take lightly about the only time we do so quickly is when someone is spamming, or using vulgarity/sexually explicit language etc in EVERY post they make (and of course under age members) we go after those fairly quickly, asking for personal information will also get someone banned quick if they don't stop after being warned ... For other things it often has to get pretty bad and then we often discuss it with our supervisor before taking this drastic step.

Thanks for clarification. I just reported a 12 year old, after nearly an hour of thinking about it first. I feel bad, but those are the rules.

Thank You JuztM...remember when it comes to the underage it isn't JUST an ASK rule it is Federal Law. And if Ask doesn't get rid of them *we* could be shut down and fined... so when you report an underage you are helping keep the site open

And a good rule it is. Wish they would raise age to at least 16.

Hi Deanna how come i get notifications but i cant see their comments I'm i on restriction ...
Report as
no, it wouldn't work like that anyway there is no "restriction" that keeps you from being able to see comments. Likely the person's comments were removed, the notifications still pop up even if we remove a comment (we are seeing if we can get this fixed but IDK if it is possible or not)

Thanks because i have few that i had and none show up... I really
Like ask Deanna ... I like coming in here to relax and answer questions meet new people but its been kind of stressful this past week and I'm trying to keep positive but its getting to a point that its hard to adjust but i will keep trying and thanks again for your time...

I know Hawk these "growing pains" are always hard, but so many people voiced concerns over the state the site was in that Ask felt they needed to go back to basics, we will be continually evaluating the Guidelines as we go along and know that some of this may not be set in stone we just have to see how things go. I also assure you that are a lot of great things coming up for Ask in the next year as well :) and yeah... stressful is an understatement for us Mods since we are the ones who take the heat for the things Ask does *sigh* ahh well all in day's work. lol I really do think the new rules are going to be positive in the end though it was getting really nasty around here :( We are still working out how to handle certain types of questions and are all in contact with management daily on these issues so be patient with us, we are trying to achieve a balance here and it's on the point of a pin so it will be precarious for a bit.
