When a user is warned, they will receive x amount of points. These points will expire exactly one month from the date of the warning being issued. If a user passes x amount of points, the user will automatically be banned from our forums for a week.
Points will stack until the last points earned from the last warning issued expire, whereby a user will start off with zero points. Below is a list of what level accumulated points equate to in ban time.
Users warned will recieve a direct message containing the warning and contain a link to the content that warrented the warning.
