As of yesterday, the forums now use a three lives warning system. Any member who loses two lives will be placed in the Reject group. Once in the Reject group you better shape up, or it's game over. Simple as that. Members won't lose a life right off the bat for infringing any board rules, as we also utilise both verbal and friendly warnings. Verbal warnings are official, and will be logged in your warn log, but won't effect your lives. A member will recieve a maximum of two verbal warnings per situation, continued infringement will result in the loss of a life. Friendly warnings are unofficial, and won't be recorded in your warn log. Even though they're unofficial, they shouldn't be ignored as you'll only be given this type of warning once per situation, after which you'll recieve official verbal warnings for continued infringement. All members will be notified via PM when they have received a verbal warning or lost a life, and the PM will state the reason for the warn or loss of a life. Friendly warnings will be made on the forums only. It should be noted that any action taken by a member staff will depend on the rule infringed, on the situation in which the infringement occurred, and on the personality of the staff member.
