    Annual acknowledgment of the rules

    Every year or so I reset the "I've read the rules" switch and force everyone back through the rules. Tonight is that night. Late tonight I will do the reset and everyone (staff included) will be forced back through the rules before being allowed to make a thread or post.

    Please take a couple of minutes to read them so we can avoid some of the infractions that seem to be getting a lot more common lately. Especially about politics, language (and language workarounds) and flaming (attacking) other members. Please note there are harsher infractions for not heeding a previous warning or infraction. If you don't care for our rules or don't believe that you can mind them, please don't lie and tell us you will when in fact you haven't read them. You are responsible for knowing and understanding them.

    Once a member receives 50 infraction points, they are banned automatically by the infraction script.

    ... and they'll be relegated to wading through the cesspools. We'll not. Each time I post, I am happy for that.

    How does one find out how many infraction points he has ?

    If you go into your user CP you should be able to view your infractions if you have any.

    You don't have any, but so you and others know how to check here is the procedure.

    On the blue line at the top of the page click User CP. Then choose Your Profile. You will see an Infractions tab. Click there and the infractions will be shown.

    If you get infractions you will receive notification. Most infraction points expire after a period of time.

    Nice try. Actually, though, most infractions expire after a awhile. Is 327 all you've had? I could have sworn it was more....

    Just got done re-reading the rules. Bumper, Mod's and Admins, thanks again for keeping the site running so well, its always a nice place to be apart of.

    I have noticed a rise lately in the use of offensive language on here, and it always bugs me a little bit. Not that my spoken language is clean by any means. But I feel that this is a professional, intelligent group of people, who can probably find other ways to express themselves without resorting to that language, and it makes the whole group look better without it IMO.
