What happens if I break a rule?
We reserve the right to manage each breach of these rules differently, depending on the context. However here is a general process of action that will be taken in most cases:
1st rule break (minor offence) - the post will be edited by an administrator and a PM will be sent informing you of the change and why.
2nd rule break - another warning via PM.
3rd rule break - you will receive a temporary ban, the length of which will depend on the severity of the incident.
Further rule breaking - you may receive a permanent ban, meaning you will never be able to use the forum again.
