MORE SCREENSHOTS ARE ATTACHED TO THIS POST!

FAQ

Q: Why did this become a free product?
A: Seeing how there are plenty of alternative solutions that seem to satisfy users despite the fact they are full of bugs as well as the fact that vBulletin 3.6.0 has a warning system of its own, we decided that there is no point in having this hack as a commercial product anymore.

Q: How is this different from vBulletin's Infraction System?
A: This has much more features that are more reasonable and more interesting than those of vBulletin's. Read through the list of features and look at screenshots to see for yourself.

Q: How is this different from an alternative warning system called BLAH_BLAH_BLAH?
A: This has more features, less bugs (if any), and this is just a whole different project. See screenshots for yourself.

I like this. I think a neat idea ontop of this would be to make it similar to the warning system on AOL Instant Messenger. As you get more and more of a warning percentage, your IMs per minute is decreased. As an example, let's say a site allows one most per 60 seconds. For every warning point you have, you could tack on another second.

I'm just thinking outloud. In any case, I like this modification. It's simple, yet I'm sure it'd prove to be effective.

I don't get how the vB 3.6 right now has bugs?
I understand though that this does have more options..
