    Your infraction was for posting 5 blogs in a row, which is considered spamming.

    But more to the point, blog spam is blog spam. You don't post multiple posts in a row. Same logic applies to blogs.

    No, you haven't been infracted, and might wanna talk to an admin about the Trade forum thing.

    Yeah, you're the second person to say they can't post there...

    Infractions generally won't restrict you from posting on certain boards.

    What's your definition of blog spam? Posting multiple times within an extremely short period of time concerning the same topic?

    EDIT: Update to this thread clarifies blog spam and comments on the nature of death threat infractions, which previously were always simply "moderator discretion."

    What's your definition of blog spam? Posting multiple times within an extremely short period of time concerning the same topic?
    Posting multiple entries in a short span of time, basically. Even if they're wildly different topics, if you're posting 4 or 6 entries in an hour, that's too much--it knocks people down off the recent blogs list. And they deserve their time at the top.

    The posting issue was caused by the actual Trade Center being closed to posting, to prevent threads from accidentally going there. The Wanted, Offering, Hacked, and Shop Subcenters are all open to posting.

    Hey everyone,

    I've gotta say that some of this infraction system is incredibly draconian - particularly in regards to the moderation team. Systems of infractions on message boards usually don't work too well if those in charge of dishing out these 'punishments' are itchy on the banhammer finger, and it's assuredly no different in my experience here. I got infracted for commenting on a guy who literally typed like this:

    "Uh i thnk it wud b easier tu gimme a gist ov wat u want an srry
    bt im new ta dis so u mite need tu tell me how tu meet up with u"

    I said "The S key is your friend" in reference to the fact that he consistently spells "is" as "iz" (for some unfathomable reason) and got infracted for off-topic posting. Apparently common sense is off-topic now? There's a basic standard of decency that overrides replying to an inane topic - and in demonstrating it, I've been punished. shud i strat tlkin liek dis ro iz diz rly bad spling nd stuf cuz fi i koment ima gte punizhd???????1///1/

    ...But seriously. I also got infracted when I replied to a bizarre topic like "I need a Cresselia right now but don't ask why!!" with a "WHY" - a three-point infraction. That can't be adequately explained. When someone posts a strange topic it's perfectly within the bounds of reason to, you know, respond as if it's actually strange. Which, of course, it is. I'm aware that a one-word post is considered 'spam', but a three point deduction for a single word seems a bit harsh.

    I'd prefer a productive response rather than yet another infraction, if that would be possible.

    Someone posted a fake pokemon from some random artists who is not a member of the site, and I said the picture was hideous.

    For this, Transfinite gave me an 8 point infraction. 8 points.

    I quickly pointed out that two posts below mine someone said the exact same thing. After speaking with them, they told me they had received no infraction.

    The same moderator also didn't like a thread I had made earlier about another moderator (though I was given permission by Evkl to do so)

    Am I the only one who sees this as a little ridiculous?

    Dude, can't you just move on? You don't have to go all public about your case. If anything, it only gives people the impression that you get butthurt about breaking rules.

    If you're going to talk about it, talk about it to the administrators. We regular users don't really have much of a reason to even listen to you.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Do the points expire or stay?
    With all these points involved I think they would stay?

    I'm sorry, I wasn't aware you don't take power abuse seriously. Considering you don't, I suggest you move along and mind your own business.

    I HAVE talked to an administrator. He was beyond unhelpful. He neglected everything I said and told me that if I didn't like it I should said. Other that he kept dancing around issues while never, ever giving me a direct answer and kept saying things were subjective.
