What is a minor offense and what is a major offense?
Minor offenses - any offense not directed towards someone else. (Example: If you post something in the wrong thread, it is minor, excessive profanity)
Major Offenses - Any offense reguarding another member's rights. (Example: Posting pornography, racial slurs, threats to another user.)
Minor offenses will usually result in a warning and a mod removing, moving, or editing the post.
After 3 minor offenses within a 2 week period will result in a 1 day ban from the forums.
Major offense will usually result in a removal of the offensive material, and a possible 1 day ban. (Administrator's discretion)
If a ban is necessary more than once in a 1 month period, your ban time will rise to a 3 day ban.
Any problems beyond that point will be handled by a moderator, and can result in a longer ban time, or a lifetime ban at their discretion.
Any questions can be answered by a moderator.
