Hello there! This thread is one to inform you about the warning and banning system for our forum, how it works, and how you may appeal to overturn or appeal to reduce warn level under our rules. We will also list the warning system for our discord servers, since that is a separate, connected system.
There are five warning levels on the forum, and you will be warned for violating the rules of the forum - found here.
-The first warning you may receive is a neutral warning. This is essentially a slap on the wrist to tell you to knock off whatever it is you're doing. You and the moderation team will be able to see these warnings permanently, and we will be looking for improvement with regards to areas of problematic behavior, please be aware.
-The second warning you may receive comes with an accompanying day ban from the forums. This ban will also be reflected within the associated Discord servers.
-The third warning you may receive will come with a week ban from the forums and associated Discord servers, and all of the above that applied with the day ban continues to apply. If you have reached this point, there is usually a consistent issue causing a problem. This should tell you to start working on that.
-The fourth warning you may receive will come with a month ban from the forums and associated Discord servers. This is a lengthy period of time for a reason. If you receive this warning, you should seriously consider your behavior and what best to do to resolve it upon your return.
-The fifth warning you receive is no longer, really, a warning. The fifth warning you receive is a permanent ban from the Nuzlocke forums and its associated Discord servers. We have only had occasion to permanently ban a few users from the forums up to now, but it is almost invariably users who have consistently made the forum environment worse for users at large.
The moderation team now reserves the right to elevate the amount of warn level given to a user for an infraction(s). This will be applicable in cases where either
A. a user has broken multiple rules, or
B. a user has transgressed in a more extreme way than the rules account for. Examples of this include repeated bigotry, cruelty, or instances of targeted/sexual harassment.
Note that this may also apply to our Discord warn system in transgressions of its rules as well.
You will receive a conversation message from a moderator when you receive a warning, letting you know the circumstances and placement of the warning - keep track of this conversation, as it is your primary way of checking your warning status. We highly recommend you star conversations with warnings so you may easily locate them later, especially if you frequently recieve conversation messages. If you are ever unsure about your own personal warning status, you may ask a moderator for more information.
