    Infractions Rules.

    Here is how infractions work from here on due to members ignoring a few rules we have, especially members posting thanks rather than using the post thanks system we have here.

    It may sound harsh but look at it another way, who wants to visit a forum where every other post is thanks, cheers, nice one etc, no more post warnings will be given, infractions will be given out and your post will be deleted.

    Spammed Advertisement will be given 9 Points and lasts for - Permanent
    Signature Rule Violation will be given 1 Point and lasts for - 31 Days
    Posting Thanks will be given 1 Point and lasts for - 31 Days
    Posting Crap To Gain Post Count will be given 2 points and lasts for 31 Days


    All Usergroups will be banned if they accumulate 3 Points = 7 Days ban
    All Usergroups will be banned if they accumulate 6 Points = 31 days
    All Usergroups will be banned if they accumulate 9 Points = Permanent

    This will be done automatically, if a Moderator gives you an infraction it will be stored in our database, if you get another it will be added to your previous infraction, if you go over the threshold listed you will be banned for the said period.

    If you receive an infraction think of it as a warning, it's not the end of the world but more of a reminder to stick to the forum rules, after you receive the infraction DO NOT start sending pm's (private messages) to the Moderator asking why, they only give them out if you have broken the rules.

    Any abuse sent to the Moderators will lead to a permanent ban regardless of your usergroup. They are here to help, not to get earache from members that can not follow our simple rules.

    Again, thank you for reading these infraction rules.
