    I'm not bitching or questioning any mods, but why exactly did I get warned? I've been happily posting for a good while here without a warning before, just curious what happened? Your decision is your decision and based on your judgement, so I'm not going to piss or moan or argue, I'd just like the reason, please. [​IMG]

    I don't know, but I'm guessing it had something to do with your mac book thread that got locked (because GBAtemp users are apparently too stupid to let one of those go by without turning it into a flame war).

    because you made a thread asking why you got warned.

    This is not the testing area, so keep it on topic.

    Send a PM to Costello (What I did when I got warned by accident)

    I got warned once but got a PM explaining the reason (by sinkhead I think). Weird thing is I'm still warned by 10% and it's been like that for months. Doesn't it dissappear?

    Warnings to go away automatically, a staff member (moderator or above) has to do it manually.

    the whole trash system works to prevent members from viewing posts that result in a member being warned. So it's highly unlikely that normal members will be able to answer your question (unless they were there at that time). If you have any problems with your raised warning level PM the one who raised it or contact one of the admins.
