We will be utilizing the Infractions system here on MaxJax: HC. Should a board member break the rules then we reserve the right to perform corrective action and that is when the Infractions would be used.


The following are the infractions currently in place:

Infraction

Number of points
Days until Infraction expiration

Spamming/Double Posting

5 points
30 days
Inappropriate language/Bypassing the profanity censor

5 points
30 days
Posting officially released material

10 points
30 days
Disrespecting forum member

20 points
3 months
Ignoring direction from team

20 points
3 months
Allowing another user unauthorized access

30 points
6 months
Duplicate account

30 points
6 months


Infraction points accumulate while they are active (not expired) and if the total number of points reaches a particular amount then the system will generate a ban. Those are as follows:

20 points = 7 day temporary ban
40 points = 1 month temporary ban
60 points = Permanent ban


Should you receive an infraction, do not discuss it publicly in any area of the board as that is against forum rules. You are welcome to message a member of the team if you have any questions about an infraction you have received.


We reserve the right to modify the infractions, points, expiry, and ban times. We will always post an update in this thread if such a change is made. We also reserve the right to issue custom infractions if we deem appropriate.

So glad you guys have this infraction system in place so members aren't banned permanently from the forum without warning like in other places. I never thought I would say thankyou for a punishment system :lol:

Bumping this as a reminder that this system has always been in place.

Usually, we're not given reason for issuing infractions, but it does happen on occasion.
