1. When one registers for the forums, there is the option to put "Referred By -usernamegoeshere-", and if you do, then that person's referrals will go up. Basically, it's how many times that person has been documented referring someone else to the forum.
2) Yes and no. A red card can 'expire' [the points won't count anymore], but it will never disappear from your profile. However, one can also set a permanent infraction that will never expire [the points will count toward your total forever]

I hope that helps.

Ah, right I understand that now. Thank you



okay another question regarding posting in threads; if I was to post in a thread, right, then deleted that post and then made a new post but deleted that too straight after would I get infracted or warned for it?

To the moderator that issued the infraction, I would assume. Lol.
If they don't comply, go up the chain of staff.

And . . while there aren't ~specific~ blog rules, the general forum rules basically apply. I mean, random blogs that are kinda 'spam' are fine as a blog IS a reflection of of oneself. As long as there's not an obnoxious amount posted successively in a short span of time. :/

I mean, if a blog is offensive, it's usually reported and dealt with accordingly - but other than that, to my knowledge there's not that moderation really involved with blogs. In general, it's common sense that people who have blogging rights would at least know a bit of rules so . . yeah. Lol.

Ok, and how about like.. word limits on blogs? Could I write "That's cool, man" and get infracted because it's not part of the 3 word rule? Just super curious.

No, you wouldn't get infracted. Again, it's self-expression. And, they're for fun. XD;

You can't delete your profile. You also cannot delete your account. If it says you are using the same email, then make a new one. Or, change the one that you are using on this account via the User CP.

You could technically. But we tend to refrain from infractions for it unless you're a repeat offender.

Does it have a title at all? And if possible, could you screencap it?

You don't have any active infractions, so it doesn't seem to be that. A screenshot would help though.

sorry for the late response. its title is "Latest Post Comments Recieved" and it has "7 point(s) total" next to it. i dont know how to screencap it unfortunately. the only thing that concerned me was the points 7 points part and the red boxes next to the name of the forum.

Oooh, post comments are a good thing.

They used to be called User Reputation, and they're just little comments left by users who compliment/comment on your posts. People hardly use them anymore really, but they're nothing to worry about. ~

So if my PM box was 100% full, and I got an infraction, would the PM still be sent?

why is asking for a site to watch animé on an infraction of the site, when moddifying, illegaly downloaded roms, making anti piracy patches for heart gold souls silver. you know surley if i get an infraction for asking for a website, youd have to get an infraction for advertising roms, that youv "hacked" hacking i recall is illegal so it must be an infraction.

You'd still get the infraction, yes.

Asking for a site to download anime / games would be advertising, which is against the rules. ROM Hacking, while not a lot of people agree with it, is all on-site. No advertising is necessary for it really. If people want Clean ROM files they can find it on Google really easily, but they can't ask on PC. same thing applies to watching/downloading anime episodes.

Better to be safe than sorry. Even if you didn't know it was illegal, then you still shouldn't have shared it. Harsh, I know, but still. Double-check the site before you share it to make sure that it won't lead to trouble for you.

I thought you posted it with knowledge of it's illegal status. That and the fact that the licensing by Viz should have given you a clue. However, if you genuinely didn't know, contact a member of higher staff and they may be able to reverse it for you.
