Infraction System

The Infraction system automates certain processes of the moderating duties while ensuring forum rules and regulations are adhered to. A Warning will be issued to members who have committed minor violations on our forum rules and regulations while Infraction points will be issued for more severe offences.

A warning may be issued to a member depending on the seriousness of the offence. Warnings look like infractions but are worth 0 points and do not count toward your total infraction table (which holds infraction points awarded). Warnings usually apply to more minor violations, or first time violations.

Depending on the seriousness of the offence, one can be awarded 2 or 3 Infraction points. If a member accumulates 12 infraction points the member will be temporarily banned for 3 days.

Members can get infraction points for the following reasons, including but not limited to:

  1. Thread Digging or Rubbish/Nuisance Thread/Post
  2. Spammed Advertisements
  3. Posting/Sharing Pornography or related materials
  4. Inappropriate Language / Insulted Other (s)
  5. Troublemaker (trolling, impersonation, etc..)
  6. Posting Racist Comments
Viewing Infraction Points
The infractions points can be viewed on each member's "User CP" page if applicable. When a member receives an infraction, a private message will be sent to the member. Infraction points expire only after 12 months and within this period, points are accumulative if the member continues to violate the general rules and regulations of the forum.

Please be warned that posters who deliberately and viciously break the rules may be permanently banned with no warning. Decisions on the executing of Temporary or Permanent Ban is up to the discretion of the moderators and administrators.

To view your Infraction Points, please log on to your UserCP.
