    Warning %

    I have a warning % next to my username with 5 icons. I have had it since I became a member, but I don't know what it is or how to get rid of it. At present it is set at 0%, and I would appreciate any advice on how to get rid of it.

    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Hitting 0 is a good thing in this case. The rules of the board are there for all to read. If they are not taken to heart, then you might end up with a warning % that is higher than Juan Castro's BA.

    You don't get rid of it.

    You can only see yours [well you and staff] but other members can not see it.

    As long as it's 0%, you've done nothing wrong.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Everyone has one and you can't get rid of it. It acts as a convenient and central way for us mods to reprimand actions against the rules of the board. 0% is a clean record, anything greater than 0% is not. Also, the system resets after a poster gets to 100%.

    We don't automatically tie suspensions/bans to it (although they often result after warnings). It's simply a way for us mods to keep track of how often/severely a poster has violated the rules in the past.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Thank you for explaining it. I have had it since I became a new poster, and I didn't know what it meant.

    Shoooot... you guys are small timers! Call me when you get to 60%
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I am glad I started this thread. It seems I was not the only member who didn't understand what it meant. Hopefully, this thread will help many more members.

    I guess I am considered a General Nuisance Troll.

    I wonder if that is in any way related to The Travelocity Roaming Gnome?

    Mine hit 20% the day DanO traded for Womack. I was a little irate.
