Infraction Policy

Merc Infraction Policy

     Members not respecting the posting rules and guidelines will be receiving infraction warnings with associated point values.
     Members will be notified of their infractions via an automatic private message.
     Point values are given depending on the severity of the infractions as outlined below:

Cause for Infractions:

  • Confrontational/Provocative Posting = 1 Point = Expires in 14 days
  • Insulting Other Member(s) = 1 Point = 1 Point = Expires in 14 days
  • Inappropriate Language/Name-Calling = 1 Point = 1 Point = Expires in 14 days
  • Knowingly Posting Personal Info - 2 Points = 1 Point = Expires in 14 days
  • Demeaning comments towards Race/Religion = 3 points = 1 Point = Expires in 14 days

     Once your infraction point count reaches the predetermined limit of 2 points, the system will automatically place you on moderated posting. If your infraction level reaches 4 points, you will be banned and reinstated when your points start to expire reducing your point count to 3 or lower.

     This does not preclude users from instant banning for indefinite periods concerning gross infractions.
