    • A.

      When deleting a thread.

    • B.

      When moving a thread to the correct forum.

    • C.

      When copying a thread to the correct forum.

    • E.

      Almost always.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. When moving a thread to the correct forum.
    E. Almost always.
    Explanation
    When moving a thread to the correct forum, it is important to leave a redirect. This is because a redirect ensures that users who were previously accessing the thread will be automatically redirected to the new location. It helps maintain user experience and prevents broken links or confusion. Additionally, leaving a redirect is considered good practice in most cases, as it helps with search engine optimization and ensures that any existing links to the thread remain functional. However, it is not always necessary to leave a redirect, hence the inclusion of "almost always" in the answer.

      Moving the thread to evidence first so the additional infraction options appear.

    Correct Answer
    C. Manually infracting each post individually.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "manually infracting each post individually" because it is the only option that mentions infracting each post individually.

None of these options involve manually infracting each post individually.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "the user already has been warned previously" and "you are selecting an option that bans the user like Porn or BOS." This means that if the user has already received a warning in the past or if the infraction they committed is severe enough to warrant a ban, then you may bypass the "warning" infraction and give them a red infraction that carries points.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Note to be filled in by the mod issuing the infraction clarifying the infraction."

    D. Every time you issue an "Other" infraction.
    E. Every time you infract outside of your assigned forum.
    Explanation
    The "Administrative Note" should be filled in every time an infraction is issued and the post is not deleted. This note is used to provide clarification on why a user received the infraction.

    Rate this question:

  • 13.

    Correct Answer
    C. Issue a warning or infraction for one of the posts.
    Explanation
    When a user is found to have violated the same rule more than once, the appropriate action for the moderator is to issue a warning or infraction for one of the posts. This serves as a reminder to the user that their behavior is not acceptable and gives them an opportunity to correct it. It is important to address the issue directly and provide clear consequences for repeated violations. Taking immediate action by issuing a warning or infraction helps maintain the community's rules and standards.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    What course of action may a moderator take to handle a "Habitual Offender?"

    • A.

      Send a threatening PM to the user explaining it is time to change their ways or they will be banned permanently.

    • D.

      Infract enough posts to perm ban them.

    • E.

      Send a PM to the user explaining it is time to change their ways or more serious methods will be employed.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Put in a ban request in the Bannage Request forum.
    E. Send a PM to the user explaining it is time to change their ways or more serious methods will be employed.
    Explanation
    A moderator may take the course of action to put in a ban request in the Bannage Request forum and send a PM to the user explaining it is time to change their ways or more serious methods will be employed. This means that the moderator will report the user for banning and also communicate with the user privately, warning them about their behavior and the consequences if they do not change. This approach allows for both official action to be taken and a chance for the user to rectify their behavior before facing more severe consequences.

An IP match only indicates that there is a potential connection between the two accounts based on the shared IP address, but it does not provide definitive evidence of any specific relationship or identity.
