I was reading through the Physics Forums Global Guidelines just now to see if I could find anything on repeat threads. I didn't find anything although I may have missed where it was mentioned so, if anyone knows where repeat threads being warnable offenses is stated, please, feel free to show me. I'm bringing this up because I was warned, about three months ago, for posting a thread twice. I asked about it because, initially, I thought I was being warned for something else because my warning log says "Homework negligance" which made no sense. However, I was told that I posted a thread twice thus the warning. Assuming this rule does exist, it's a <sarcasm>tad</sarcasm> strict. I posted my topic twice because of something else I had read on here that stated that homework helpers tend to scan over threads to see which ones have no replies so bumping up your own thread isn't all that wise. Mine already had several replies so it appeared as though I didn't need any help and I was afraid to bump it. Instead, I reposted my question because, even though I had five days to do the assignment in question (Because I'm a cyber school student.), several days had already passed and I began to panic (Chemistry, after all, is my weakest subject. I need all the time I can get.:rofl: ) I was still really quite new when I got that warning (I had only been here for about ten days when I posted that particular thread twice.) and, despite my explaining why I did it, my warning stood and has remained ever since...and, from the looks of my log, it'll stay put... Adjustment: Increased Amount: 4 Expires: Never Warning Percent: 26% Isn't that a bit too strict?:uhh: I'm not whining or anything,:rofl: I'm just curious about this rule as, like I already said, it seems to be quite harsh (And this is certainly the first time I've seen a site jump on something like this.) when each situation differs and, in my case, I only made a mistake, one I haven't made since and certainly won't again. Hell, if you get a 26% warning for each repeat thread, I'd be over half way done for with one more in my log.
