We've always been pretty lenient when it comes to banning and rules but at the same time ensuring the forum and its members stay protected. From this point on there has been proper infraction levels set out , this gives all users plenty of notice before being banned. NOTE: Anyone that currently has out standing infractions still have them. Each infraction point now last 6 months, after a 6 month period the infraction point will expire and will not be included in your total points. There are now two levels of infractions , 1 point and 3 points , Its up to a moderator which level you deserve. Once you get to 5 points in total ( not including expired ones )you will be banned for 10 days automatically , Once you reach 10 points you will be banned for 1 month automatically . If after the 10 point ban for 1 month you come back and still proceed to cause problems it will be an instant ban with no more warnings. The mods also have the power to ban you on the spot for set amounts of time and forever , so if some thing is warranted for an instant ban instead of an infraction warning you will be banned. The infraction system is designed to get those repeat offenders that think its funny to do so. These infractions are not reversible , however if you get one point for example today, and you get no more for the next 6 months , that 1 point will expire which then means you have none etc etc etc .
