How long does it take?  I have at the moment 48, so I can't really say anything for fear of getting more.

(hopefully asking how long it takes for death points to drop off is not a death-pointable offense)

90 days. I'm at 41 because Inks got all fussy about me insulting veterans, but a bunch are dropping off soon so I'm not too worried.

Good lord, I have ages to wait.  according to the web site which tells you what the date was 90 days ago, that date was January 30th.  So, my first death-points which will drop off after that will be from February 23.. so I have until May 23 before I can come back from the brink, and then only by a few points!

Anyway at 50 death points per 90 days, we can only survive with about 16 death-points per month, and I'm afraid that doesn't give much room for any expression.

I believe the simple truth is that they became somewhat alarmed when they realized that I really meant to write what I believed. There is a peculiar parallel between some of our great Northern "liberals" and some of our outstanding Southern liberals.

Some of the people in both classes share the deep-seated convictions that only their convictions can possibly be the right ones. They both inevitably say the same thing: "We know the Negro and what is best for him."

"Death points" would imply that they actually cause you to be banned, when the relationship is tenuous at best. Smiley

Your Highness, "death points" is a term we subcreatures use mockingly, seeing that despite the Mods attempt to scare the cowardly masses into thinking infraction points are "bad" and could lead to being banned, death points have never been fatal; but are rather simply a byproduct which has oozed out of the overzealous tyrannical boils that have blighted this Great Forum like Hell itself.

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

90 days? I was infracted for five points on Jan. 20. Why haven't they been dropped off then- shouldn't that have happened back on the 19th of April?

Dude, relax, I have 7 death points dating back almost a year.  Until I get infracted again it will still show as 7.......in fact if I get 2 death points for something my total will show 2.

Gramps is right.  And there's no harm in having those death points there.  It just keeps the system from having to refresh the count for the 5000 accounts (or whatever the number of accounts is).

My death point count would have gone down had Inks not goofed the other day Tongue   Thanks, friend Cheesy

To do that a mod just needs to infract you and then revoke the infraction.

It doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.  Look - the complaint that this stuff doesn't refresh automatically is quite ridiculous from a computing perspective.  We already deal with slowness on the forum at times.  If we had automatic refreshing of points, it'd be a disaster of a script.

It doesn't matter. I've got 19. That's a good thirty (I think) under the mod review limit, so I'm not worried. If you've got five points that don't even "count" any more, what's the big deal? Tongue

How have you 19 points? What is your reported post:moderated post ratio?

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

Creating a poll asking whether Ron Paul should marry Mitt Romney and two instances in which I fell afoul of the strict anti anti-Mormon moderation policy accounts for the bulk of them.

My sympathies are yours; though I myself am not necessarily pro-anti-Mormon, I am unabasahedly anti-anti-anti-Mormon.
