Since when does infractions expire? Surely if it's an infration, it's an infraction and should stay that way until a member is suspended (or banned).

:lol: That's what i've got. Just raising the query as Emma's guide seems to indicate yellow cards get removed but red are permanent. Just wondering if there's another glitch in the system....

(I don't think you've much risk of getting banned by the way as they're for nil point..)

No infractions don't get deleted.:)

The points built up through infractions lead to suspensions. The more points you get, the longer you'll be suspended. BUT, after a couple of weeks the POINTS attatched to an infraction "expire", meaning that if you had a 24 hour ban previously (2 points) then you get another 2-point infraction after they've expired, you'll only get a 24 hour suspension, as apposed to a 3-day suspension which would be given if you had 4 "active" points.

The message itself isn't removed from your profile. We refer to these later, as we may be more strict with someone if they are repeatedly breaking the same rule.

Hope that helps.

who did ya insult ? :-D

It's worth pointing out that holly100 and shengis both only received "warnings", which are different from "infractions" as they don't carry any points.

Good explanation, but maybe Emma should look into the Newcomers advice thread as...

Infractions are the penalty system in place on HUKD, which record your … Infractions are the penalty system in place on HUKD, which record your breaches of the forum rules or the forum code of conduct. If you receive an infraction, you will get a PM explaining the reason. You can receive either a yellow card, which is only a warning, or a red card, which is a permanent note on your account.



Is rather ambiguous. It looks like yellows are non permanent, like a police caution or ASBO:thumbsup:

So anyway, what's the actual difference between a red and a yellow. It seems on the face of it that they're both the same. Is it just a matter of points or do you start at yellow and get upgraded to red for a repeat offence or what...?

@Owlass, I was breaking Col's balls over a picture he posted. He was ok with it but JB took offence :lol:

We tend to give yellow for a first offence, then reds after that. Also, if it's only a minor thing then we can just give a warning, or a "yellow card" for that, too. So yes, it depends on the number of warnings given previously, the type and the severity of the offence.

A "yellow card" is pretty much the same as us just sending you a PM asking to behave yourself (that's what we used to do before this new system) but it has the bonus of being much faster for us and it helps the mods (and yourself) keep track of what you've been upto.

We were handing out "red cards" for any FS/FT offence at all. Once we'd done this for a while, we reviewed that stance and decided to give warnings first, then infractions... we've been doing it that way for a couple of months now at least.
