We have implemented a new warning system. Its fairly simple and straight forward.
It's like this:
|Warned User||2 months|
When a warning has been issued to a member, the icon will be visible in the users profile for the duration of the warning. The icon will also be visible in the post where the violation occured along with a description fo why the warning was issued. The icon in the post is permanent.
When a user is warned, s/he will also receive a PM.
If a member gets another warning within 2 months of the first warning, that member is banned.
So don't get warned
Edit: we now also mute. It's less severe and lasts for 7 days.
