    Exclamation User Infractions ~ A Quickie guide


    User Infractions


    What it is: The user infraction system gives points for rule violations. Some infractions will expire after a certain time period and some never expire. This is based on the severity of the infraction.

    The following is a list of the current user infractions, their point value, and their expiration's.

    Infractions

    Posting of an unapproved link in signature or posts

    * Links to competing sites, referral programs*, or any site that nets you a profit or competes with this website in nature or our affiliates is not permitted. (*Exception- members with 25+ posts may post their referral link on our referral boards)

    The rule on signatures is that you may not have any link in your signature that links outside of Budget101 Forums unless you have:

    A. Paid the fee for advertising OR
    B. Have asked for approval from an Admin or Super Moderator.

    * Points - 5
    * Expires in - 1 Month

    Flaming or insulting another member or staff.

    * All flaming or insulting post violations will result only if a member finds your post(s) to be serious enough to report your post for violation*** of this rule. Members are to self govern this rule by reporting any post that they feel has gotten way out of hand. Flaming and insulting members does apply in all forums.

    * Points - 5
    * Expires - 7 Days


    Spamming the board via PM or posts

    *Spam is not tolerated what so ever at Budget101. Spam is an immediate and permanent ban.

    * Points - 30
    * Expires - Never


    Creating Multiple Usernames

    *Creating Multiple usernames/accounts for the purpose of bumping posts is prohibited.

    * Points - 15
    * Expires - 1 month


    Promoting Fraudulent Coupon Activity

    Posting about using coupons in a fraudulent manner or Posting a known Fraudulent Coupon

    * Points - 30
    * Expires - Never


    Negative I-Trader Ratings

    Please note, ALL negative I-trader ratings are reviewed by site staff and may result in removal from the ability to participate in the experience shop.

    Consequences

    All infractions have consequences, here you will find how many points and how many infractions it will take to give users a consequence.

    10 Points OR 6 Infractions = 2 Day Ban from the board
    20 Points OR 8 Infractions = 5 Day Ban from the board
    30 Points OR 10 Infractions = Permanent Ban from the board

    We realize that Budget101 Forums does not have many violations but they do come up from time to time. Most members are respectful to one another and follow the rules and we appreciate that!

    We feel that knowing the rules and what will happen if you break the rules is good for the forum.

    All Budget101 Staff, Mods, & SuperMods are able to issue infractions.

    Of course we hope none of our members will ever need to get an infraction, But as the board grows each day we realize that it's bound to happen from time to time.

    *** To report a post for rule violations please click on this - -icon which can be found in the right hand corner of each post. This will send a message to our staff.

    If at any point we feel the need to revise these infractions we will and will amend this post and bump it to let you know if there are new infractions. Our goal here is run the board smoothly so that we can focus our time and energy on bringing you the best information on frugal living (within your means), dirt cheap recipes, freebies and hot coupons.

    Thanks for posting these... I'm familiar with infractions policies on other boards and kind of wondered how they worked here.

    When I look at my experience since this new promotion deal is going on I have the following items on my profile which I do not understand. 07:49 AM Armymomof2 has lost -4 Points for Posts points

    07:49 AM Armymomof2 has lost -22 Points for User points

    07:49 AM Armymomof2 has lost -10 Points for Misc points

    07:49 AM Armymomof2 has earned 9 Points for threads points

    06:50 AM Armymomof2 has lost -9 Points for threads points

    Can someone explain what is going on? I also seem to have lost my blog award as well.
