This is how the Infraction system is set up. I decided that you guys should know how many points you get for each violation of the rules.
Acummulation of 10 points nets you a ban. Points go away based on the offense. Most disappear in 15 days, the "Auto ban" violations last 10 days, meaning if you get one of them, you will be banned for 10 days. If you acummulate 10 points via non-auto ban violations (ex. you get 5 infractions for spamming, at 2 points a pop times 5 of them equals 10) means you will be banned for 15 days.
The new Vb update has added a new feature to the Infraction system. If you get 2 of the same Infractions before the first one expires, the time is lengthened.
Example: If you get 2 infractions for spamming in the same day, you'll get a total of 4 points, the first Spamming infraction will last for 15 days and the second infraction will last for 30. Although if you get one for Spamming, then another for spamming 14 days later, your second infraction will last for 16 days since your first one would expire in a day.
Basically if you get the same infraction again before your previous one expires, the new infraction will last the normal time PLUS how ever long your first one has left.
Also, this means if you get two of them same auto-ban infractions in the same day, your banned not for 10 days, but for 20.
