Since recently I've got this on my profile:

When I click it I see this:

As far as I know I'm the only user on the forum who has this. Which is strange. Is it a leftover of some test that was done or something? And people forgot to take it down again? Let me know what's up with the "warning point" system, would you?

Ah, so it's a personal thing. Where the "mods" communicate to everyone "behind the scenes". Rather pointless in my opinion... It would be better if it was visible for everyone. That way you could see who is almost outta here and who behaves. lol But then again, how does acne.org define "proper behavior"? :lol: That's an interesting question. Anyway, this thing reminds me of the reputation thing with the "likes" which people have mixed feelings about which I can understand.

I have two warning points. It's so that everyone knows you're a trouble maker.

So don't even start with me guys, cause i will chew. you. out.

I don't see you have any warning points, so how could I know you are a troublemaker? haha

Only yourself and the mods can see it. It's just your warning level. Although yours will no doubt be raised for posting this topic. Keep your eyes down and don't question the authority.

If a member is warned for a violation of board rules, their warning level is increased, usually by a point. If that builds up to five points, it would result in a ban, although we could ban prior to that if we saw fit. Nobody else can see it apart from the moderators, there's no need for anyone else to see it. Plus it's not really anything for members to worry about anyway if they post within the board rules.

lol ayla, yes, you'd better behave!

This system has always been there, but after the board upgrade, the way warnings are communicated to members has changed completely. That's why you have access to your own warnings now.

Nosy much? :P There's a reason that members can see their own warnings only. And it's not about pissing off mods, we're used to obnoxious behavior. If you break one of the board rules, that's when you'll receive a warning. That applies to everybody.

"Abusive Behaviour" to that AKL geezer above. I Didn't really mean any offence by it I just stated that he takes his moderator job FAR too seriously haha and threw in a few swear words for good measure.

I hope it did tell you, for if it happens again, you can spend your whole day sleeping, instead of hanging around on an acne forum.
