There are points in my PF account, six points. How do I acquire more points? And what does it mean if I have an infraction and it is never going to expire? :uhh:
In other words points are bad hence being called infraction points. Infraction points have various lengths and expire after a certain length of time, some never expire.PF Rules said:Disciplinary Action:
A member may be issued either a warning or an infraction if deemed warranted by an admin or mentor (usually from guideline noncompliance). Infractions range from 1 to 10 "points", depending on the severity of the violation; warnings carry no points. If a member accrues 8 or more infraction points, he or she will be automatically banned from Physics Forums for a period of 10 days. If a member receives any infraction after having returned from a temporary ban, that member will then be banned permanently. Obvious, incorrigible spamming or trouble making will be met with a permanent ban.
Appealing an infraction
If you feel an infraction is undeserved you may send a personal message to the Mentor in question (or if you feel it necessary a different Mentor) explaining why you do not feel the infraction was deserved. The issue will then be bought before the rest of the mentors who will discuss the matter before getting back to you. The Mentors decisions are final.
