    Ever read the banned user list...

    And wonder how many points you have on your BF license as it were?

    You would know if you have points.

    I get a kick out of members requesting voluntary banning.

    I got a warning was but the points were removed with good behavior, ass-kissing and some spooning with a certain mod who will remain nameless.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Your points will be visible to you and the moderation team only.

    Oh yes of course we do. You will get a PM from the issuing moderator with option to protest it with an administrator. Usually one gets a nice PM first. If the same actions continue, you get an official PM warning which you will see on your profile. After that if it continues, you get an infraction. Three infractions will give you a one week ban. Infractions do expire and the dates are shown on your profile as well.

    For someone to be permanently banned, they REALLY have to do a lot of damage to the community. I mean pages and pages of infractions.

    Keep in mind that before any action is taken, it is discussed amongst other moderators to come to an appropriate resolution. Sometimes we WILL reverse an infraction if you give reason why it should not have been administered and it is reasonable.

    In watching the actions of others, some may question why a person is temporarily banned (because they have not seen the offending posts) but the chances of leaving the reason (posts that are in violation of the forum guidelines) still posted publicly is nil.

    Mean, nasty, threatening and derogatory PMs also will earn one an infraction if it violates the forum guidelines.

    Funny, I don't remember any of that so I looked at your profile and it is clean. Are you sure it was on here?

    The posts that the person got banned for are never posted on the banned users thread nor is there a link to the thread in which it is contained. So it's hard for me to understand how you know what exactly someones banning post is.

    We leave basic reasons for the banning such as accumulation of points (one warning and three infractions or three infractions), high maintenance (which means we have spent a very large amount of time on a member's actions), etc.

    getting a PM giving you a heads up that something you posted wasn't acceptable isn't a warning
    A warning is recorded on your profile under the "infractions" tab.
    You will get a PM that looks like this:

    Dear joebananna,

    You have received a warning at Bike Forums.

    Reason:
    -------
    Inappropriate Language

    Please allow the site censor software to do its work. If you want to discuss what words are censored on BF, I suggest you PM Tom Stormcrowe. Under no circumstances is it acceptable to misspell a word to bypass the censor.
    Please consider this rule while drafting future posts.
    Regards,
    Eric, a BF moderator
    -------

    Original Post:

    blah, blah, blah, actual post deleted
    Warnings serve as a reminder to you of the forum's rules, which you are expected to understand and follow.

    All the best,
    Bike Forums

    I see reasons like crossposting/spam/ or some other insert obnoxious behavior in here and I wonder to myself how fine the line is, does that make more sense?

    Go to your profile, if you don't have an infraction tab then you don't have any warnings or infractions. Only you and the staff can see your infraction tab if it exists.
