    Well.... I have 10% warn because I accidentally gave the link to a ROM site. Can I get my warn back to Zero again?

    Usually you have to wait a month or a few for a Mod or Admin to lower it for you.

    Your warn will most likely not be lowered
    You can request removal over 4 to 6 months

    You can PM the staff member that gave it to you if you want to explain something

    Well... I forgot that giving a ROM site was forbidden so........ If I give you the link to that page where I accidentally included the site. Won't my warn go even higher?

    Probably depends how long ago it was. If it was a week ago, then you're probably being premature because that defeats the purpose of the system. And seeing that you've only been around for a couple months, I'm going to guess this is precisely what's happening.

    It is a common sense rule typical of sites like this, and I doubt most people even need to read the rules to know that it's prohibited.

    But not much good it does instructing you after the fact. Obviously you know now.

    My advice is to not worry about it. 10% doesn't affect you, and it will go away eventually. I carried a warning for over a year, maybe even two, after blowing up on some imbecile. Nobody cares.
