What are these so called warning points and why do I not see these under anyone else s name. Is someone anticipating I am going to be reprimanded. Not seeing a lot of humor in this.

It is just part of the new software they used, Everyone has the same thing, only you can see yours.

So what would the criteria be to be on the receiving end of these warning points. And how many before you get a time out LOL

As a rule, it would take something like spamming, disrespecting another member, gross rudeness, blatant disregard for good etiquette, improper language, etc.

I don't think you have anything to worry about :)

Ok guys, I would like to make a statement about the Warning Points system, seeing as I have 2 of them little gremlins. :bigrofl:

Firstly, I can see them fine. Secondly, you can NOT post until you "acknowledge" each Warning Point... individually... :spanka: lol.

Third, you can set them up to expire apparently, which one of the two of you have figured out already lol.

Basicly you will see a heading such as "Signature Violation" and then a note elaborating on the exact reason. There is also an "Abusive Behavior" heading, and you will see a note to that one. You will ALSO see what thread/post the Warning Point is issued for, so a really slick system. And if you go to your profile and click the Warning Points you can view them all and the details for them. I think this Warning Points System is pretty neat, especially since some can expire (if set up to) so that means you know how long until you can loosen up again. Anyway, that is the current report on.... the whether (or not you get to stay). :bigrofl:

Hmmm... There also seems to be a heading of "Topic Bumping" and you will see... you guessed it... another elaborated upon message of the reason lol.

Now a question to the mods: How many are there of you guys?? :wallbang2: lol
