Reply Bans don't result in points earned, and mods have a choice to notify the poster or not. In almost all cases where I've handed out reply-bans, I have notified the user...usually linking to or recommending reviewing the Forum Guidelines (link in sig...shameless plug ;) ).

In many cases, if we delete/edit/merge posts, we can usually notify the posters there as well. Though sometimes it takes more effort due to the system's options and implementation. So I am sure there are quite a few times where many mods edit or merge posts and don't notify users. I still try to, again recommending reviewing the forum guidelines because if I have to spend my time managing posts...least I'm gonna do is let you know about it and what you should do to stop that from happening in the future. But even here, points are not given by merely editing or merging.

Points are given through infractions which can be based on user or user post in most cases, but that is a separate process from editing, merging, deleting or reply banning. So if we feel the need to go beyond the management of content or your posting privileges to infraction, you've earned it.

Now while I am all for communicating when we hand out infractions, edits, deletes, reply bands, merges, etc., keep in mind that IF you were behaving and following forum guidelines in the first place, there wouldn't be a need for requesting it.

That being said, I did take a quick look at your history OP, not seeing anything with my standard mod access that looks too recent as-far-as points or changes, but there are things I cannot see which may require a super mod. I have brought this thread up to the other mods in our lounge where we can review your request. Thank you.

Here is the skinny on the points system. We have found that custom infractions do not send an automated message as we thought they did. When you receive a standard warning, one of the 5 we can pick from, the software will send an automatic PM to the member. If the infraction is a custom title (as in we put the reason for the points into a blank box) the software will not. There is a box we can check to sen d a PM, but many of us forget to do so.:oops:

In the future, I would suggest you PM a supermod for clarification on such matters rather that creating a thread, which typically turns bad.

If you would like to continue this, feel free to PM me and we can discuss the fine details, but from what I see on your profile, you are in no danger of losing privileges at this time, so it is not that big of a deal.
