Sure, this isn't the only good solution. But it certainly looks good in theory. I'm not blindly supporting it until I've seen it in action over a period of weeks, but it appears to be thought out well, and it's certainly easier for any forum's staff to adapt to a method they've developed themselves than to modify another forum's methods to suit their needs.
I added screenshots to the first post now.
With quotes, it's people who quote amssive sections in one go like say the entire Fanfiction Rules then add one line of their own underneath. Completely pointless, damn annoying :S
On the sears, I've only ever gone for anybody who who goes seriously over the top. Never seen any problem with wth wtf and such. It's the messages that seem nothing but *'s, then there might be a problem

I like these new methods, and they will doubtlessly be very effective in the future. However, I can't figure out how you view these points, as I've thoroughly checked my User CP and profile and they're nowhere to be seen.

This system will help alot of people, serebii.
Hrm, I dunno if I like this.
It certainly seems fair, that's for sure. But it looks like Modding is going a bit...over-the-top? Like, I know some things are pretty serious, but is this perhaps being treated too seriously?
And yeesh, this whole point system makes me feel like the whole driving point thing. @_@ I have my Drivers' Permit Test in a week and I still don't know if passing a stopped school bus is 3 or 5 points...
Really. This is kind of neat and all, but at the same time it's just a bit wtf. :/
And on swearing, first off it's allowed in certain places, like FacFiction and RPGs (in some cases, at least) so mentioning that might settle some stomachs.
And also, would you still get points off for saying things like 'f***/ing', 'sh*t' or whatever if one or more letters are replaced? Or what if I told someone to get off their lazy 'arse' or said 'effing'?
And sometimes people swear in a joking matter. To their friends, I mean. Like "hey *friend*, this fic is f***ing awesome! *insert rest of review here*" or even "well, *friend* was busy cuz he just sits on his *ss all day, right, dude? XDXDXD"
Will you still get points off in such cases? I know it's only one point and not the end of the world, but I'd like to know for ah, future references.
I think this is wonderful new addition to the Serebii forums ^-^ Great job Joe & Jess! This method is really easy to understand, and it also will help people keep track of what they did wrong *nods*
Keep up the wonderful work! <3

Are the sig violation rules still the same after this?
Could you give us a list of what is considered foul language? While some may think "Damn" or "Hell" is foul, others don't. Is that rule more of, don't invade the censors (like, putting a "." after the "F" in the "F word" to keep it shown) or what?
Oh, yes, nice system... I like it alot... It'll keep me from partially flaming bad writers. ;-; But I have a question... What are chain PM's?
You know about Chain emails, like where one person sends to another. and that person sends to another, and it keeps going on?
Thats. A chain PM.
Hm...Psychic asked the question I was going to ask... ^-^ So I'll just post saying that I'm going to enjoy the Multi-quote. I've been waiting for these forums to get that for a while, and it is needed in certain sections, like the Debate forum, as Sunkern said.
Interesting that mini-modding is a warnable offence. So, I now wonder if those who respond to spam topics saying "This is spam!" will get both spamming warnings and mini-modding warnings?
I ask the strangest questions. <.<
Pure Trolling - 100 Points - Does Not Expire - No Warning
- I hope this goes into effect in the Other Console forums where people just come in PS3 SUCKS LOLZ OMG get a WII ITS SO COOL without any kind of debate/attachment to an arguement behind it.
Overall the system is cool, but some stuff like petty bickering/fun jabs at each other can be seen by other mods as something different. Like how sometimes little bickers occur in the anime forum, it's all in good fun, but I can see a SERIOUS MOD coming in and taking points away.

Worst. Pokemon. EVER.
Let's hope the new warning system works. And nice, you enabled multi-quote.
BTW, I got a suggestion for the warning system. How about also giving points for bypassing the 10 character minimum? By that, I mean this, for example:
This is sometimes annoying, especially on the Games forum.
Hey Joe - yay *claps hands* - finally a valid way to do moderation - good job to everyone who came up with the idea.
