    Re: Infractions

    So it says suspensions may be appealed, but can infraction points? (How many infraction points lead to suspension? And where can I find an explanation of the format of the infraction points? 1/0 (0), in this case?

    Always first read the rules in the FAQ and the sticky posts.

    The infraction tool was added to provide discreet private communication since members may forget the rules, not notice editings or posted notices and we don't send email notices, so this lowers the incidence of needed suspensions. It has been very successful.

    A warning or point puts the member on notice to get back to the rules. There is no set rule on how fast anyone might accrue points or when they might get a suspension.

    Not all infraction notifications result in infraction points, some are simply warnings or instructions.
    Some infractions expire and some are permanent.

    "Breaking any rule may result in accrued Infraction points that can result in your membership being rendered Inactive, which is the only warning that might be given. (Seeing moderator comments does not mean that no points were assigned.) Good posts do not negate bad ones. Any suspension may be appealed, but might not be lifted." [/B][/COLOR]


    The rule you mentioned says a suspension may be appealed (this does not refer to an infraction), and the rule states an infraction may be given.

    Moderators may enact a suspension at their own discretion. Mods are not obligated to issue any infraction or warning. It is entirely up to members to read and follow the rules on your own.

    The Infraction messages are used to give instructions and/or to remind what is not allowed and is deemed inappropriate for this website. There will always be times it is a judgement call, but you can be assured mods know what is allowed.

    Infraction counts are not public. Members see only their own infractions when logged in, and a PM message awaits.

    The first number is the number of warnings. There are no points for warnings.
    The second number is the number of infractions. Points accrue for infractions.
    The third number is the number of points accrued. When specific points accrue a temporary ban is automatic.

    There is no reason to appeal an infraction. It is instruction. If you get warnings or points you are on notice that disregard of rules will lead to loss of access. Once one gets a suspension, that may be appealed.
