Thanks, hopefully butjam can clarify everything exactly and then update it into the rules so that we aren't blind.
I'm told I've had a warning before without being informed about it, I don't really get the point to this as I never knew my behaviour was deemed unacceptable and so had no chance to correct it...
My warning PM that I was allowed to have this time also didn't reference the thread or post that was in question, nor did it say what % warning was issued.
I think there should be a time-frame that forum staff have to act within in response to an offence. Waiting for a week to issue warnings annoys people especially when the thread has already been dealt with (locked, for example) by a moderator/admin. We assume that when forum staff post in a thread, they have had the opportunity to act on any ill behaviour also, so its frustrating when people then go back and issue warnings several days down the line.
