    Default Am I always going to be this way?

    So a little while back I accidentally double posted and got a warning. I was unaware I had done it, and stunned by the notification.

    Now I see I am carrying a scarlet letter underneath my avatar and name. How long will that be there?

    What is the intent? To shame a user? Maybe some users, but me?

    Maybe I should think it gives me "edge," like wearing a badge of being a bad guy.

    Maybe it's there to warn off others in responding to a post I make.

    I don't get it. I'm not edgy, but this tag makes me feel frankly unwelcome.

    Or is that the point?

    Only you and moderators can see the warning marker.

    It will go away when the warning expires. I believe that's six months.

    Yes, exactly.

    Ah, much better.

    It's really just a tag for the moderators to know who's who, and a reminder to the individual.

    I'm much happier knowing those are the only ones who see it.

    Sheriff: Indeed.

    Also, please review the Forum Rules for answers to questions like this. We haven't necessarily thought of everything, but the answers to many, many questions can be found there.


    The Infraction System
    On the Giant in the Playground Forums, we utilize a built-in system to track Infractions. Moderators issue these via controls available to them on each post and on the user profile. Both can be viewed by a Moderator or by the poster receiving the Infraction on the user profile with notes as to the reason it was issued; the number of Infractions, and Infraction points received, also appears in the user information box on all posts. Normally, a specific post is being cited; this post will be marked with a Red Card icon in the lower right corner. The same Red Card icon appears on the user profile list. Please note that only Moderators and the poster receiving the Infraction can see this information. It cannot be viewed by other non-Mod posters.
