All Warnings and their Consequences

Question

It has come to the attention of the auth team that there is nothing that lets users know the amount of warning points they can receive for breaking a rule, and the amount of time that the point remains in effect. That is why we have decided to make a visible list of each of these infractions visible to the user base.

Listed below are the various warnings that can be given for rule infractions, the amount of points that accompany them, the length that the point stays active, and a brief generic explanation that details the basics of why the warning was issued. Moderators do NOT alter these parameters upon issuing a warning, and they will adhere to how they are listed below.

  • Advertising - 4 Points (240 Days)

 

When a user advertises anything that requests sign-ups, subscriptions, payment, or other forums/servers on our forum or server.

  • Chatspeak - 1 Point (10 Days)
 

Chatspeak is the abbreviation of single words. An example would be when “ur typin lyke i em rite nao.” Abbreviations of multiple words are allowed, such as “btw” and “imo.” Multiple incidents of chatspeak warrant this warning.

  • Derogatory Language - 1 Points (90 Days)
 

When a member uses a slur regardless of context, it displays a lack of concern for others and is considered derogatory language. Being a part of a group generalized by these slurs does not make you exempt from being punished.

  • Disrespect (gaming) - 1 Point (90 Days)

 

This warning pertains to instances in which one user treats another user disrespectfully based off of their choice in games.

  • Disrespect (minor) - 1 Point (90 Days)

 

This warning is issued when a user displays a lack of respect for and treats another user disrespectfully. Incidents that are considered to be minor and less disparaging are covered by this warning.

  • Disrespect (major) - 3 Points (180 Days)

 

This warning is issued when a user displays a lack of respect for and treats another user disrespectfully. This specific warning covers incidents that are more severe in nature and/or occur frequently in succession.

  • Evasion - 5 Points (365 Days)
 

When a person uses another account whether it be on the server or the forums in order to bypass a mute/lock or mod queue respectively. Yes, this includes mutes by BreloomBot.

If a user’s username is vulgar, offensive, or a mimicry it will be changed and the user is given this warning.

  • Inappropriate Profile - 2 Points (150 Days)

 

If a user’s profile contains vulgar, offensive, or mimicking content. This includes the About Me Page, Signatures, Avatars, or any other info that can be customized on one’s profile. The user’s profile will also be edited to remove the content that leads to this warning.

  • Needless Double-Posting - 1 Point (14 Days)

Note that these consequences remain unchanged from the Community Upkeep, Dec. 2014 thread, and have remained in place since 14 December, 2014. Potential changes to the consequence list are liable to occur. As of 29 February, 2016, these are the consequences of Warning Point totals:

1 WP: The user is no longer eligible for Voice (an Ace Member-applicable server status).

2 WPs: The user loses Voice status, if they currently have it.

3 WPs: The user loses Ace status and is no longer eligible to buy it.

5 WPs: The user is put on a 30-day post preview.

7 WPs: The user is locked on the server until they fall below 7 points.

10 WPs: The user is banned from the server and forum.

 

The following warnings apply to users on the Showdown Server who do not have a forum account:

3 WPs on the server: Server Lock until below 3 WPs.

5 WPs on the server: Permanent IP ban from Server and Forums, if an account exists.
