    Xtreme Justice System

    Post by Guy Westcott on Tue Jan 27, 2009 6:01 pm

    The Xtreme Justice System

    Warnings, Infractions, Cautions and Bans

    If you commit an offence, you will be issued with a warning. Each warning will carry a number of infraction points - the precise number is up to the moderator’s discretion. Each warning (and the infraction points attached to that warning) will automatically fade after a standardised period of 28 days. However, if the total number of infraction points a member has at any moment reaches 10, that member will be banned, usually for a period of 7 or 14 days.

    Sometimes, depending upon the offence committed, more may be called for than just infraction points. Sometimes a warning may also contain a caution. If a member commit’s a further offence, after receiving a caution, a ban is mandatory.

    Infraction points and cautions will normally fade with the accompanying warning, but a moderator may issue an extended infraction or caution which will stay on record for longer.

    For the most serious cases, bans may be issued immediately. Bans may be for any length of time, not just 7 to 14 days, and in extreme cases bans may be permanent.

    Private and Public Appeal

    XNKF does not wish to be a fascist society, and as such there are ways to speak out against injustices. There are two appeal routes - private, and public.

    Private appeal must be the first appeal. The appellant must PM the moderator who issued the sanction against which he is appealing, explaining the situation, and asking for the decision to be overturned. You may discuss this with the moderator as long as is necessary, and if the moderator still refuses to reverse their decision, there is a second appeal route.

    Public appeals make use of the new Xtreme Kourtroom. There are three courts of appeal. At the top of the hierarchy is the House of Administration, presided over by the administrators. Next down is the Super Kourt, judged by the supermods, and finally the Global Kourt, run by global moderators. If you are appealing, the first kourt to whom you must appeal is the kourt run by the immediate superiors of the moderator who made the first decision. For example, if a standard moderator issues an infraction, against which you wish to appeal, you appeal to the Global Kourt. If a supermod issues the infraction, you appeal to the House of Administration. In the instance of an appeal against an administrator, the appeal is directed at the House of Administration, where the other administrators will reach a decision.

    If any of the lower courts feels the case requires the input of a higher authority, they may either request a guest judge from a superior kourt - I.e. a higher staff member will join the lower kourt for this case - or they may refer the case to a superior kourt.

    Prosecution and Konviction

    If a moderator sees that a member has committed an offence, they will, of course, take action.

    If an offence is committed against you, or else if you see that an offence has been committed, as with appeals, there are two routes you can follow this up.

    If you see something contradictory to the rules, or if you are a victim of an offence, you can either report it (private method) to a moderator, by PM, or you can bring it up in the Konviction Kourt, in the Moderate Kourt (public method). Unlike in an appearl kourt, there is no obligation to use the private method first, however, it may be preferable.

    In the Konviction Kourt, the moderators will judge each case and deliver appropriate action. As with the appeal system, if the moderators feel they need higher authority, or if they are unable to reach a decision, they may refer it to a superior kourt, or invite a guest judge. (The case may be referred more than once, from the Moderate Kourt all the way to the House of Administration.)

    Konviction Kourts may also be used by staff who wish to raise a case but are unsure of fitting punishment, or of whether it is an issue or not, and may wish to refer the incident to a superior kourtroom.

    Intervention

    During the course of any case, a higher authority has permission to intervene in proceedings. For example, if a supermod sees someone being prosecuted in the Global Kourt, and wishes to pardon them immediately, they can join the kourt temporarily. However, the higher authority must have good reason to intervene, and must not act out of favouritism, and the action must be recorded in the case records. Members are not permitted to request intervention in their cases to mods with whom they get on.

    Records

    The final forum within the Xtreme Kourtroom is the Record Room. Here are two sub forums containing records.

    Case records are publicly accessible. After every case, details will be written up by a scribe from the kourt which finally settled the case, and filed in the Record Room, in the Case Records sub forum. Case reports will contain details of where the case was first heard, if it was referred, or a guest judge used, who initiated the case, for what purpose, etc.

    There is also a Members’ Records sub forum. Here are held details of all members who have either received warnings, infractions, cautions or bans, members who have participated in the kourtroom, or had any other part in proceedings in the Xtreme Justice System. Their every involvement will be recorded, including not only active warnings but also faded warnings and repealed warnings (but dates of when they were expired or repealed will also be recorded). Also recorded will be members who have been part of the judging parties in the courts - mods, global mods, supermods and administrators, and reference numbers for cases they were involved in.

    First amendment:
    In addition to sanctions described above, failure to comply with rules in certain forums within XNKF - particularly Serious Discussion - may result in a ban from that forum, either temporarily or permanantly.

    Second, Third and Fourth Amendments

    Post by Guy Westcott on Tue Jan 27, 2009 9:41 pm

    Second:

    If a staff member orders a punishment they have not got the power to deliver (for example, a standard moderator issues an infraction, bringing the infracted member's points total up to banning level, but the moderator has not got banning authority, it is the moderator's duty to forward the case to the House of Administration Konviction Kourt.

    Third:

    Should any cases be forwarded to another kourt, the person forwarding the case must also PM somebody from that kourt (for example, any administrator or webmaster, if the case is being forwarded to the House of Administration) with notification of the case.

    Fourth:

    Should any case appear unnoticed - e.g. if a member raises a case in either an appeal kourt or a konviction kourt, or if a case has been forwarded to another kourt but no action has been taken - after a week, the person with the issue should PM notification to someone from that kourt (for example, any administrator ot webmaster, if the case is taking place in, or being forwarded to, the House of Administration).
