A long running issue with people's accounts is that they can't see their warnings and how many warning points they have. This can cause confusion when people are temporarily banned for receiving several warnings. It often comes as a surprise since people have no visibility of their warnings. So now you can see what warnings are on your account and how many active warning points you have. On your profile page there is a new warnings tab (if you have no warnings you won't see one). Your total active warning points are also visible on your profile page. Warning points typically expire a year after the warning is received. We tried this previously but that change allowed everyone to see each other's warnings which is not cool. Now only you (and the modmins) can see your warnings. As a reminder of how warnings work, the modmins give them out for rules violations and also as quality control reminders (e.g. if you're formatting your posts poorly or regularly making crap posts we'll tell you). Sometimes we won't give warnings at all and instead send you a PM with a friendly reminder. We're nice like that If you receive multiple warnings you will likely be temporarily banned. If you continue to get warnings you will eventually be perma-banned. Here are the warning point thresholds: 5 points = 2 day temporary ban 10 points = 1 week temporary ban 15 points = permanent ban Don't worry, this isn't an announcement heralding a new reign of terror from the modmins. It's just a tweak and a reminder to how things work. Now go forth and obeyeth the law! --------------- Edit: And of course if you're a complete plonker we reserve the right to ban yo' ass without warning!
