  • Infractions

    Infractions will be given for inappropriate behavior. Each infraction will be 5 points. Multiple infractions can be issued for the same post. Warnings can also be given that will not accrue points. Infractions will expire in 15, 30 or 60 days depending on the infraction. A total of 20 accumulated points will result in an automatic 2 week ban from the board. Repeated offenses can result in a longer or even permanent ban from the board, which will be completely at the discretion of the moderating team.
    • SPAM - Worthless posts with no content or nonsensical posts are spam. A spam infraction will expire in 15 days.
    • OFF TOPIC - posts that have nothing to do with the topic of the thread they are posted in are off topic. An off topic infraction will expire in 15 days.
    • ADS - solicitations to buy, sell, or trade products or services, or links to do the same are not allowed. An ad infraction will expire in 15 days.

    • MODERATOR ABUSE - attacking anyone on the moderating team is moderator abuse. If you disagree something a moderator does let us know in a PM or e-mail, and do it politely. Do not attack a moderator in any thread. Attacking or flaming a moderator in a PM will also be considered moderator abuse. Moderator abuse infractions will expire in 60 days.
    • DISCLOSING PRIVATE INFORMATION - every member is entitled to privacy.

Libel infractions will expire in 60 days.
    • ETHNIC/RACIAL/GENDER SLURS - will not be tolerated, even if made in jest. Ethnic/racial/gender slurs will expire in 60 days.
