Warnings and Punishments​

Warning points stack up on your account and if you reach certain thresholds of warning points, you will be punished. Warnings are not appealable. Below are the explanations for warnings on both discord and forums.

Discord Warning Points​

Discord warnings are different from forum warnings and don’t expire. Each violation of the rules will receive one warning point and the punishments are leveled after your first offense. The levels are as follows:

  • Level 1 - Simple warning that is on your account.
  • Level 2 - Mute - You’ll be unable to use text and voice chats for a set amount of time.
  • Level 3 - Kick - You’ll have to rejoin the discord.
  • Level 4 - Softban - You’ll be kicked and all your recent messages will be deleted.
  • Level 5 - Ban - You won’t be able to join back and will have to make an appeal on the forums.

Forums Warning Points​

Forum warnings automatically expire after the time period listed for the violation. If you reach a certain threshold you will have your access to the forums limited or removed (till expiry). After 10 warning points your forum access will be limited (1 week). After 15 warning points you will be forum banned (till points fall below 15). The violations are as follows:

  • Necroposting / Bumping: 2 warning points [Expires: 3 months]
