Chatroom abuse Answered

The Chatroom can be easily abused. The 'Warning" system does not have any requirements, which means that anyone can warn someone for no particular reason. Each time a person is warned more than 4 times in a row, that person is muted for a specific amount of time. Each 4 more warnings is punished by 5 minutes of being muted. Meaning that if someone is warned 8 times, that person will be muted for 10 minutes.

Some persons are abusing this system and warning people for no reason. Yesterday, I was warned 32 times. Mostly it was

  • Littlechef37
  • Okoshima.
  • Linuxh4xor (3 times, as part of the fun. Still, you jerk)

The consequence of their joking, was that I was muted over 5 times.....almost 25 minutes (not in a row though)

This kind of people simply ruin the experience.

I know the chatroom has nothing to do with instructables, just meebo. But because of those jerks, the 32 warnings will now follow me forever (the chatroom tracks your IP adress) and if I am warned in the future, the punishes will be more severe. (Permanent banning from the chatroom is actually possible if a member is warned too much)

hey keith im sorry if i warned you 3 times, but your random nonsense doesn't help much...

Well okoshima and littlechef took it a bit far like... However I got muted aswell, from the warning game, however for whatever reason my I.P. isn't static so it doesn't annoy me...

. Welcome to the Internets. Unfortunately, things like this are almost impossible to prevent in an unmoderated forum. :( . Sometimes, but not always, cycling the power to your modem will get you a new IP.


Wow, didn't know that Sorry, I admit I did it 3 times *slaps self across face*

Added to the list then. Why else would I be so quiet???
