    Welcome to the forums, where you can get support from Staff Members or other members of the community. Since we want you to have the best possible experience you can while using the forums, we have implemented a set of rules to keep the forums more organized, appropriate, and safe for everyone.

    Warning Points

    The forums use a different form of punishment for users - Warning Points. Whenever you do something that goes against the rules you will be issued warning points, the amount depending on what rule you broke. If you receive enough warning points, you will be banned on the forums, the lengths are shown below.
