Cable Forum Warnings System
As most of you will know, we have a warnings (infractions) system for people who find it hard to follow our rules.
The main list of possible warnings is as follows ;
General Behavior Warning
Breaking the Sites T&C's (Minor)
Minor Offense involving dispute with a moderator request
Arguing With Other Members
General Forum Attitude Problem
Abuse of the Reputation System
Insulting Other Member(s)
Breaking the Sites T&C's (Major)
Ignoring Moderator Request/Decision
Arguing Moderator Decision
Registering or using a duplicate account
Senior team members can also give custom warnings not listed above.
Note that if your 'offence' is a 2 or 3 point warning, and it is your first ever warning, it will generally be given as a 0 point warning.
The expiry time of each point level warning is as follows ;
2 Points = 90 Days
3 Points = 120 Days
4 Points = 180 Days
5 Points = 240 Days
6 Points = 300 Days
7 Points = 360 Days
The suspension levels are as follows ;
5 Points = 1 Day
7 Points = 1 week
9 Points = 2 Weeks
11 Points = 3 Weeks
13 Points = 1 Month
15 Points = Perm Ban
So if you currently have 4 points, and get a 3 point warning, your account will be suspended for 1 week (the 7 point level).
The "Eight and Out" rule.
Appeals & Expired Infractions
Please also note that expired infractions will not be removed as they count towards the eight and out rule.
If you feel an infraction was unjust, you can only appeal against it for up to 28 days after it was given. This must be done in the manner prescribed by our site's terms and conditions. Any infractions over 28 days old will not be removed or altered.
