Infractions and their expiry

  1. Feb 12, 2012 #1
    Dear Members and moderators,
    If the infractions received by a member expires, whether he/she will be given the concession of three warnings again?

    It's case by case. Usually, though, if someone is repeating an action that has received multiple warnings in the past, they have "graduated" to infractions.

    There is no rule that a warning must be given before an infraction.

    The number of warnings or infractions is only of importance if there are a large number of them. What counts is the number of unexpired infraction points. If you accumulate 8 pts a temp ban will result. If 10pts are accumulated the result is a permanent ban.

    There is no such concession, some are just lucky to not get an infraction after a single warning.

    I have 4 general warming infraction points. I do feel special.

    Thanks for the reply. Now all the accumulated points expires, and then one receives a fresh infraction which has worth(!) of 3 points. Now , will it be 11 points or 3 points

    You are going about this the wrong way. The question you should be asking yourself is "how can I be a positive, contributing member to the forum?" and not "exactly how much mischief can I cause - down to the nanogram - before I am banned?"

    Capisce?
