Hey Erin, if someone gets a warning or infraction, does that record stay forever or like the DMV will disappear after awhile (if it does, how long? I hope it is not 3 years :-P)
Just a quick note--I've flipped the switch to make infractions publicly viewable. In a word, this means that violations of forum guidelines show up in posts.
You might see something like this:
(advice or warning)
in a post.
If you see one of those, it means that a forum moderator has seen the post and has given an infraction or warning to the poster.
If anyone's curious, the most common infractions are for textese, posting contact information, and copyright violations.
The reason I've made this change is simple--I'm hoping that if people see the infractions or warnings, they'll see in the post what we don't like or don't allow in the forums.
And down the road, I hope overall this helps maintain the quality of posts in the forum.

I assume that they stop showing when the infraction expires. Some infractions, such as those for copyright violations, never expire. Others last three months.
Edit: I just checked. They never go away, even after the infraction expires. This is actually a good thing--it shows other posters that the thread has something in it that we don't like.

Does that infraction also show on the poster? For example if I made an infraction, everytime I make a post is there an infraction icon on my post? While I don't plan to make any copyright infractions or any other infractions, I do want to know what the rules and how they are carried out.
