    infractions

    How do infraction points work ? What do they stand for and at how many points do we get perma-banned?
    Why aren't images on signatures allowed even when I have a single minor infraction. On my page it says points in infraction 1(0) , what does this mean ?
    Thanks

    0 points: Warning
    1 point: 1 day without ability to post
    2 points: 7 days without ability to post
    3 points: 2 weeks without ability to post
    4 points: 1 month without ability to post
    5 points/8 active infractions: Permanent ban

    Warnings don't expire, but 1 point infractions expire after 6 months.

    img in sig should be functional for you, for some reason no sig is working for you.

    @Ninja101 :- thanks
    @Naib :- Exactly the reason why I posted. I can't upload images in sig.

    You need to use an offsite image host. We do not allow uploading images directly.

    As a person that had an infraction, i would like to remind you, that having an infraction disables images and other advanced functions in a signature. I am pretty sure it is written somewhere in the rules.

    for
    6
    months
    until infraction expires.

    It may be not intended, but it is like that. I will take my time to find more info about it and edit this post as soon as I find it.
    I find it WAY too harsh.

    edit: this is what a mod that gave me infraction wrote when I asked about it:
    First of all signature images are automatically removed and restricted for as long as an infraction remains active.
    took the name out because I was not sure if I can quote it with it.

    Sounds like the best mod in the world!
    On a related note, you can also find this info in the forum basics:
    Users with 1 or more active infractions will have more restrictions placed on their signatures:


    • Maximum total height: 200px
    • Maximum lines: 9
    • Maximum total characters: 1000
    • Allowed BBcode tags: [b], [i], [u], [size] (max=2)
    • Images, Fonts, Colors, Links, and Emoticons are not available
    • Please review the Forum Rules for additional information in infractions.

    Since warnings don't have an expiry, does it mean I won't be able to upload images ever I.e no images for the rest of my HoN life ?

    Isn't this unfair or am I missing something ?

    Tbh I am angry only because I don't have the sig. Nothing personal.
    I do not like the global one that I asked for more info. He is "too busy" to pm users that ask about rules in civilized manner, apparently.

    edit: OP, I am sure they expire in 6 months since the day they were given.

    Warnings do not count as an infraction. "Users with 1 or more active infractions will have more restrictions placed on their signatures:"

    OK lets slow down a bit here.

    TWO different issues and really there should be two different threads.
    The OP is a conundrum, without going into details there isn't anything that should stop him having an img signature. Right now he isn't even displaying a signature, even the simple text one I set it to


    The issue with TurboHydra and his signature is downto active infraction. There is still an active infraction and thus an img-based signature is disabled





    OP have you got set "Show your signature"

    I was sure that OPs warning is an infraction, and expires like them. My bad. As for me, I know. I am just friendly poking Inomares, for fun.

    Signatures displayed are cached with the post when it is created. If you don't have a signature and create a post, that post will still not show your signature. If you then add a signature in your user options it will display on new posts but not the existing ones...at least until the cache is rebuilt explicitly or expires for that particular content. Using your profile instead of a post is a better way to check if your signature modification has changed as you expected it to.
