Dear visitors and members, with the staff having moved on to other life interests and as a result of changes in people's internet usage habits, the CodeWalrus community have migrated almost entirely to Discord, IRC and WalrusIRC and is now essentially a place where to hang out, chat about gaming, programming, music, anime, and chill. As a result, even though the CW forums will remain open for posting, for faster TI, Casio or HP calculator help and news we recommend using the bilingual TI-Planet forums instead.

We encourage everyone to join our Discord server now.

* WalrusIRC

You need to have 5 posts and not be part of restricted usergroups in order to use the WalrusIRC embedded shoutbox. However, you can also access our IRC channel called #CodeWalrus via EFnet.

For the sake of transparency, here is how banning is currently setup on the forums:

-There is now a new forum user group called "Restricted". If, after warnings, an user continues to break the rules, then he will be put in that group instead of regular members. Restricted will not restrict him from posting, but any forum post he makes will have to be manually approved by a moderator (meaning that forum users will not see what he posts until it has been screened by the staff first). In addition, that user will not be able to send PMs, add/edit/delete polls nor edit his profile (except account settings). Of course, if it's clear that the user only uses the website to cause trouble, then he will be banned outright (IP, account, e-mail, etc). This group is to make it so that offenders can still have a chance to contribute constructive content to the forums.

-Since it's impossible to setup IRC to have posts manually approved by a moderator, then we will skip straight to IRC temporary bans if warnings do not work.

-For some offenses, it can be hard to get an official warning (for example, double-posting will just lead to staff asking you not to do it, while site hacking will get you permbanned outright), but official warnings go as follows:
  1st offense: Warning. Depending of the offense, this warning can expire after several months, but it cannot expire more than once.
  2nd offense: Warning
  3rd offense: 1 week ban. A probation period of 1 month follows afterwards.
  4th offense: Permanent ban if probation period is still active and warning if it's not.
  5th offense or site vandalism: Permanent ban

-In case of emergencies where a situation would get out of control and requires banning before the situation can be brought up to other admins, the ban will not be made official and will be removed immediately if the other admins are against it.

Other info:

-Warnings may be given publicly or via PM. We ask users to report objectionable content to make our job easier.

-This topic is open for discussions in case you have questions, concerns (other than drama starting) and suggestions. If anything isn't clear, then feel free to ask below.
