Dear Forumites,

This is an updated and revamped version of our Forum Infraction List. All warning points are now permanent and will not expire. Each forum user will be able to view their own accumulated warning points by clicking on the Warn Status bar underneath their User Profile picture or Forum Avatar. This bar will be completely filled when the user has accumulated a total of 10 warning points, resulting in an immediate ban.

Here we will list down all the infractions and their corresponding descriptions, as well as the Warning Points that each infraction carries. By registering for an account and participating in the forum, all users are deemed to have read, understood and agree to the Code of Conduct of the Playpark Community Forum. Warnings and suspension of forum accounts are definite consequences for not adhering to the rules. Ignorance will not be accepted as a valid reason for breaking them.
