It appears I got a 55% warning yesterday for 'abuse'. I didn't get a PM and genuinely cannot think what the hell I posted to abuse anyone.

Any chance the mod who gave it me can send me a message and just let me know if you don't mind?

In fact, was this because I jokingly replied to El Lobo in the Ibe thread saying 'Fuck off' and then making a joke about other members always questioning our youngsters? I'm guessing it is as was around that time and post appears to have been deleted.

Did the mod who gave me the warning actually read his post and my reply, because we were joking between us about people writing off our youngsters. There was certainly no abuse and think you'd find he'd confirm that.

They don't always know if we are joking or not.

to be honest it seemed pretty obvious as we were both having a convo about others writing Ibe (and most our youth) off so they can then come back and say 'Oh I knew he wouldn't make it here'.

If you read his post, then my reply I'd be surprised how it could be taken in any other context but joking.

Yeah, I know mate.

Has it been confirmed that this is the reason for you being watched though?

No idea mate, but given it's been deleted and I really don't think I've posted anything even close to being abusive that it must be.

Modding this site must be a fucking pain in the arse given it's size and the wide range of opinions fans can have, so get mistakes can happen. It's no big deal either as hasn't effected my ability to post, but I'd rather a 55% ban not be on there for what was two members obviously joking between each other.

You post telling someone to fuck off, it is abuse. We have neither the time nor the inclination to try and divine the meaning behind the post, and whether you are mates with the recipient. RAWK is not a chat room. The offending post was on the main board, so does not even get the slacker treatment of the Boozer.

That said, the warning fell short of the level required to mute you, so there are no material consequences to it. Just think of it as a suspended sentence.

I'd assume when handing out warnings context was taken into account? I mean reading my whole post (it was 2 lines long) would have made it clear the post was in jest - let alone reading the equally short post it was in reply to which would have made it even more clear.

As said, I'm fine with it as it doesn't mute me. However if RAWK is taking a line now that clearly joking posts between it's members are warnable offenses then this place is going to become a lot more serious.

The line is not joking post but that you told him to fuck off. We warn for abuse. And we have consistently defined telling someone to fuck off as abuse.

When one is being watched, does it go down by 1% per day?

Yes, but it appears to decrease by 1% per complete day, so it takes longer than expected to start decreasing.

Hi mods - i got banned for a couple days and put on 60% watch. Thought it was a bit extreme for what was a slightly goofy post, I will admit - I love the forum and am a supporter, but a gentle warning also would have done the trick in making me ponder what I post.

I know you mods have a very tough job and people often behave like adolescents on here. But I know the side effect of this can sometimes be slightly harsh moderation towards some members, and I thought this was a case in point. Then again, I wouldn't be surprised if I have gotten away with a few naughty posts on here too, so hope you don't take this as mean bitching and moaning. If you feel it was just and fair to put me on a watch, I will accept that and move on. Just giving feedback in the spirit of sharing.

You guys do a great job and I am grateful for all the hard work you do around here to keep the standards up and providing us with a forum to share our views. Thank you for all that you do and I'm chucking a tenner in the pot today.

You posted a 'he's signed' in the Virgil Van Dijk thread. That's a pain for the transfer mods who have enough to deal with when we have a transfer saga going on and I thought a few days off was the right course of action. Harsh, I wouldn't say so but these things are judgement and there's certainly no animosity on my part, it was just house keeping with no bad feeling.

Fully understand mate - absolutely no offence was taken on my part and I probably would have done the same in your shoes. I was trying to be funny by very originally linking to a picture of dick van dyke signing an autograph ;D My lack of originality deserved the ban.

Not sure where to post this so thought I'd throw it in here. I was muted last week for telling someone to give up social media in the wake of the VVD news being announced. A mod (presumably) mistakenly thought I told the poster to fuck off. Fair enough if you make a mistake as I did say 'fuck it off' and if you're in a rush you may think I just told said poster to fuck off. What I don't understand is why there isn't a chance to explain your side of the story? Now I know it's not the end of the world not being able to post on here for a few days but I did miss a week in the fantasy golf competition and I would definitely have picked the winner.

Not sure I'm getting this, when I came back on to the site after making the comment I had received a PM but there was no link in it and I had no way of replying as I was muted.

I'm now 'watched' and was just wondering is there any way to have that reversed. Not wanting to act the prick but if I remember it correctly the comment I made wasn't abusive towards another poster.

He/she had said they must wait a few hours before going on to social media because of the piss taking that would be going on and all I said was maybe he/she should fuck it off. I didn't tell the poster to fuck off. Again it's not too big a deal but I've never been 'watched' before or been muted.
