If you break any of the rules often enough or badly enough you are likely to be on the receiving end of a slap on the wrist from a mod. These tend to come in the form of a ban from the forum or an infraction.
We moderators will use our discretion when warning, banning or infracting posters.
A warning from a mod may be issued on the thread you are posting on. It may also be sent via private message or by infracting a poster. Heed these warnings as they are given for a reason. If you wish to query an on thread warning please do so via a private message to the moderator. If private messaging a moderator to query a warning please do not abuse the moderator. We have a hard enough job here as it is.
The infraction system works on a Red & Yellow card basis. If you receive a red card infraction it will be marked on your profile and will be always visible to yourself and all moderators. If you clock up many infractions you are likely to be site-banned or have your access very restricted.
If your breach of the rules is acute enough you are likely to be banned for a set period of time. This means you will not be able to post in the forum you have been banned from.If you think a decision is out of line or incorrect please private message the moderator. This should be your first port of call for any complaints you have about us.
If you remain unsatisfied with the answer you can take it up with their category moderator.
These are listed in the first post of this thread.
If you remain unsatisfied after speaking to the category moderator you can use the feedback
or dispute resolution
Feedback is for general complaints or issues.
Dispute resolution is for more specific issues you might have with moderators.
