The forum software has changed, so we’ve updated the rules in accordance. Starting now, members can expect warnings when they are breaking the rules. These warnings come with penalties, such as being unable to post as often, or temporary bans.
A notice gives 0 points and is for minor infractions.
A warning level 2 gives 2 points and lasts 1 month.
A warning level 3 gives 3 points and lasts 2 months.
Someone with 3 or 4 points gets put in "jail" and they can't post new discussions, or post as often.
Someone with 5 or more points gets temporarily banned.
Repeated rule-breaking behavior will result in permanent bans.
