Massive borderline behaviour can be stacked and may lead to one single warning or penalty. Several warnings may lead to a penalty. Every case will be regarded separately. Re-registration of a forum account during a temporary ban (and thus bypassing the ban) leads to a permanent ban. 2. If you feel treated unfair, please contact the relevant Moderator. If this is not satisfactory, you can contact an Administrator. Whose decision is always final. The same applies to closed threads. Warning A warning is a reminder that forums rules have been violated or a manager is about to do so. In this case, a warning may be issued to indicate this fact. A warning is meant as a friendly note and has no immediate effect. Warning Points Collecting a certain number of warning points lead to a temporary forums ban, to cool and give time to come to rest. Certain serious violations may result in an immediate ban. Likewise, the accumulated penalty points can also lead to financial penalties in the game. If you collect more penalty points during a ban, this may lead to a long term ban.
