    Changes (Effective Sunday, March 5th, 2017 at 12:00AM PDT)

    Soliciting (1 point penalty)
    The penalty for soliciting is changing from 2 points to 1 point.

    Naming and Shaming (2 point penalty)
    Naming and shaming is not allowed. Naming and shaming is publishing the name or alias of someone so as to single them out for individual blame and censure.

    For more information on the motivation behind this rule, see the following thread: https://piratesforums.co/threads/addressing-naming-and-shaming.17319/

    Changes (Effective Sunday, March 26th, 2017 at 12:00AM PDT)

    All current notices will become 1-point warnings with a one week expiry.

    Over the past several months, the overwhelming majority of infractions on the forums have been misplaced or duplicate threads, or off-topic posts. In an effort to discourage these behaviors, we are introducing light penalties for these infractions to help curb repeat-offenders. Because of the short expiry time for these infractions, they should not impact the majority of users. A total of 3 (active/unexpired) points is necessary to trigger a 24-hour posting cool down for the forums, during which the forums are read-only. This change will not go into effect until this upcoming Sunday, which should be plenty of notice. As always, you may review a comprehensive list of warnings, point values, and consequences here: https://piratesforums.co/help/terms

    Misplaced Thread (1 point penalty; 1 week expiry)
    There is now a penalty of 1 point with a 1 week expiry for misplaced threads.

    Duplicate Thread (1 point penalty; 1 week expiry)
    There is now a penalty of 1 point with a 1 week expiry for duplicate threads.

    Off-topic Post (1 point penalty; 1 week expiry)
    There is now a penalty of 1 point with a 1 week expiry for off-topic posts.
