What is Severity?
Severity is something that moderators can attach to a particular moderation action (closing a topic, deleting a post, etc.) A given action can get from 1 (tiny wrong) to 5 (major offense) severity points. Severity allows moderators and administrators to better identify repeat offenders and disruptive members. It also ensures that small offenses will gradually accumulate and thereby evil deeds will not go unpunished.
You can avoid accumulating severity points by knowing and following The Rules.


How does severity go down?
A member's severity will decrease every 20 days if they are active and have less than 10 severity. Severity decay is given simultaneously with activity and only to those members earning activity points. There is no negative severity -- members with zero severity will not experience severity decay.


What happens at 10 severity?
Members with more than 10 severity will be reviewed by administration or moderators and given a mandatory general suspension. The length of said suspension will be based on many factors including the number of offenses, time period over which they were required, what the offenses were, previous history, etc. With the suspension, severity will be reset to 6.


Can I view other member's severity?
You may only view your own severity by going into your profile and clicking into the admin tab. Moderators may view every member's severity.

poiuy_qwert -- It can always be updated. It can also include links to online documentation that could be update independently (if Neiv includes documentation in his repository for example)

Pr0nogo -- Only issue with it being html is that presumably it's static, new commands are still being developed and sometimes I misunderstand neiv/iquare and write something incorrect only to fix it later

poiuy_qwert -- I could also convert your google doc into an HTML page and include it in the docs, and add a button to launch it from the UI, and for more complex tooltips just have a brief description and tell them to click the button to get more info
[01:38 am]
poiuy_qwert -- Yeah, thats what I thought when I scrolled through your google doc real quick
[01:37 am]
Pr0nogo -- good luck with some of these
[01:37 am]
poiuy_qwert -- I'm not sure since I don't know much about it yet. They should be as brief as possible, while still being useful for someone to learn how to use them :P

Pr0nogo -- pq - started writing those short ones, let me know if you want them more/less specific
