The reason you acquire warns vary depending on how the member of staff interprets it and what the situation was. Warns are given to the staffs discretion and are not given out lightly.Warn removals
When the link comes up to request a removal, your request goes to the moderator who gave you the warn.
That moderator will then search your last posts to check your behavior. *Remember*
- Because a Moderator most likely will not know you personally, they will use your last posts to determine your personality and judge your behavior.
- If the moderator is then satisfied that you have served well for your misdeed's they will approve and grant you a removal.
- If not they may extend your warn for a period of time. This again will vary from Moderator to Moderator.A common misconception is that if you go inactive, you wont do anything wrong therefore you cant get more warns and you will always get a warn removed.
This is not necessarily true. The Moderator who issued your warn wants to see how you behave and behaved in the duration of the warn period to see how you have acted as a member.
They cannot do this if you are inactive and don't post, thus a chance of your warn being extended.Users with a high percent warn(%)
If you begin to accumulate several warnings at a time, it is possible that the time you must wait before a removal request may be increased.
This is to adjust for members who have a history of disregarding the rules. - CTaulborg
With 70% warn plus, you lose your private message rights along with gold logs and access to view your warn logs.
Therefore you must make a topic in the General Help
It can be that you are given a date a few months down the line to repost for more information.More information does not mean you will get a warn removal.
Once you have posted the topic, a helper in General Help will forward your topic to a member of staff to be reviewed.
Please do not continue to bump your thread, a member of staff will post there in due time with more information and a date for removal.
This member of staff will not be able to give you a reason why you have been warned, the information will not be publicly disclosed.
You will have to wait until your warn is removed to view your logs. Positive and reformed characters.
Whilst you are waiting for your warn removal date to arrive, abide by the rules and show you are an active, good member of the community.
