Warnings / Infractions


  • There are penalties for breaking forum rules and it is the responsibility of each member to read those rules. At times, members will receive a Warning, however if they continue to break the same rule, they will receive an Infraction.

  • If a member violates multiple rules he/ she may receive a temporary (3 day) or permanent ban without prior warning. Aggressive spamming or a gross violation of the rules will lead to an immediate permanent banning.

  • The system tracks all warning/ infraction details. All moderators and administrators can see what each user has received and if they continue to break the same rule. This behavior could lead to a permanent ban.
