    After years of using this site daily, I just noticed the Trade and Sell board.

    I'm currently looking to replace the Wii that was stolen from me (if you recall the thread I made about my car being broken into).

    Also i'm always on the lookout for spiffy peripherals and other cool gadgets to get.

    Unfortunately I find myself with a 20% Warning rating.

    The first 10% came from my extremely regrettable racist behaviour after I was robbed a second time. (Which I'll have you know I reconciled with the Moderator =P)


    The second 10% came from posting a link to an article on -snip- that i thought was important enough that everyone should know about it.

    Long story short, am I completely barred from using the T+S Board unless I make a different account?

    I'd open an account from a different ip. I wonder if after a year or so the warning level will go down 10% Maybe you just have to wait a year.

    Just PM a member of staff and if you've been good then they may remove it.

    Don't make another account or you could get both banned.

    Only staff can reduce warns, its not automatic. You can ask and if a member of staff and if they think you've "learned" from the warns then they may reduce it.

    Best to ask the ones who warned you, if its me you can gtfo [​IMG]

    Ok thanks for the tips! I'm pretty sure i'd rather kill myself than get banned from this site. xD

    And i've definitely been a good temper! [​IMG] No spamming, swearing, abusing, retardation or anything of the sort.

    That won't really help him now that he just told everyone exactly what he'd post with the new account.

    Although a warning % rule for accessing the trade boards seems kind of stupid. Does someone posting a link to the Pirate Bay mean their credibility as a buyer/seller suddenly can't be trusted?

    PM a staff member. They will remove 10% most likely.

    A 20% warning on 77 posts isn't great. By the time you get to 385 posts, you'll be banned!

    Last warning was on Mar 25, 2010. I fear that too little time has passed, for lowering your warn level.

    We'll see what the other mods have to say [​IMG]

    On the plus side, he's taken nearly 2 years to get to 77 posts so pencil him in for a ban in about 2017 [​IMG]

    Believe me. I learn from my mistakes!

    That's how i've been raised pretty much. I learn BY making mistakes. xD

    That's what i get for having musicians as parents. [​IMG]

    You know I bet people on death row have learnt from their mistakes, that doesn't we should set them free.
    Doing naughty things, then saying it was a mistake and you'll learn from it isn't an excuse for doing the naughty thing in the first place.

    There's always eBay. I would never use a trade board for high value trades, too risky.

    I bet people on death row don't get put there for posting a link to a news article.

    That's why I'm lucky, because Canada doesn't allow the death penalty. [​IMG] You guys can't touch me.
