    What the heck do infractions do??

    There have been a couple of threads either explaining the new features or asking about them already, but so far there hasn't been a clear explanation of what infractions are or what they do. And I'm afraid to just try them out, in case they do something bad. Sooo...yeah, what do they do?
    Thank you.

    The icon is yellow and red cards like in footie, so I assume that's it. Although if the footie anaolgy carries through it would mean "bad/worse" I suppose..

    "infraction" generally means breaking the rules I believe, so I'm going to guess it's a bad thing. I guess you'd use it to report flaming, spamming, and other such message board faux pas. Though I had thought that was what the adjacent "report post" button was for, so maybe these are just to let the mods know when somebody's just being a general all-around jag

    If a user gets an infraction, it gives them a point.
    If they get a certain number of points, permissions get taken away.
    I don't think we have anything set up though for what permissions get taken away though, so I don't think it affects anybody negatively.

    Yea, and the unspoken problem with it, is the higher your rank, the less you're drawing. aka, BAD.
