I would like to hear suggestions for changes to the classified section. If you have an issue with the classified system that you would like addressed, but don't have a good idea on how to fix it, feel free to post it and we will take a look at it or maybe another user can suggest a fix for it.

We have changed the amount of points that are needed to get a permanent ban from RCGroups.com from 40 to 20. Expired points do not count towards this total, so we only look at the currently active point total. We felt that a large gap from the 15 point level to the 40 point level was giving too much leeway for troublemakers and that it was difficult for a user to reach 20 points unless they were intentionally trying to get banned, so this change should not affect most users.

If you have any comments or concerns about this change, feel free to post them in the Site Suggestions / Complaints forum and we can discuss them further.
