Regarding Infractions

    If you have found a post edited by me, with a red card in the bottom right corner and a PM, you have been infracted. This could be for a number of reasons. Further details will be in the post.

    What is an infraction?

    An infraction is a number of points given to you. If you receive 5 points in 2 weeks, you will receive an automated ban. This is to prevent the less noticeable people getting away with consistent spam.

    Do I have it forever?

    Infractions expire in 2 weeks. After it's expired, it remains on your record. You need 5 active points to be banned.

    How serious is it?

    It depends on the number of points and the severity of the case. Everybody does something wrong sometime, so don't get too overworked.

    If you have anymore questions, please post them here. After a week, this topic will be cleaned and locked.

    Well... I've got two questions:

    Have you been doing this for a while or is it something new the mods are just starting? Maybe i just never got one :p. Will you be the only one able to see the red card or will everyone?

    And you said they will remain on your record will this affect anything at all after two weeks pass?

    Could you also please list what you could get an infraction for? Some obvious ones are spamming, maybe double posting, arguing with mod.

    Is it just stuff against the rules and is it possible to get more than one infraction at a time?

    Well that was more than two questions

    Wait you guys JUST started using this system?

    Fake Edit: Moonlight get one of the Admins to make infractions never expire by default, they are easier to keep up with and also nobody is ever going to get 5 active infractions in 2 weeks; I run the official Club Penguin forums and not even we can give out that many infractions to the same 1 person, and we tried. Also from the Administrator CP make it show Infractions to moderators only so they can see who has what and how many.

    you havent always had infractions... they got introduced to trackmill about last month or something...

    plus infractions are mainly used on fansites... im not obsessed with habbo or anything (its ****) but clubhabbo, flamehabbo, habbox, habbcrazy, yourhabbo and all that use infractions... theres no need for a gaming site... just carry on giving warnings.

    I'd say the last five posts in this topic would count as infractions.

    No, don`t do that, if a person was a spammer, get 4 infractions, then don`t spam on a year before he/she just spam once, should he/she be banned then? I don`t think so. Maybe a month, but not forever.

    If you got an infraction for just breaking one of the rulez, people would get banned.

    Yeah, maybe the Mods should got an infraction if he/she give out infraction without a reason, and if he/she do that too many times, maybe he/she should lose their Mod-status. Not forever, but for a while. I got an infraction for a thing I still can`t find in the rulez, I don`t say it was wrong that I got the infraction, but it don`t stand in the rulez. Maybe the Mod who gave me that infraction should got an infraction, or an Admin for not putting it in the rulez. Well, over a month ago now, I`ve been a nice (I think) user after that. ;)

    I always show the reason for an infraction. If you don't think you deserve to be infracted, tell me.

    You can't infract staff. -.-

    I won't infract any posts in this topic for now.

    Draco...maybe. I dunno. I'll talk to Goose.

    i'd lock this up, we read what we needed to answered the main questions and by a week it will be a spam convention... just my opinion

    Maybe like in soccer.

    "Signature Rule Violation". I used a link and said it was to track nr.1, but the link was to a other site, a site were you have to go through 150 warnings, or close the window.

    I just found out that "Serious infractions will never expire."

    I mean that Mods not should just give out infraction without reason, I don`t think that gonna happen, but IF Mods do that, someone have to do something with that.
