I was telling someone not to do something otherwise they'll get banned and I got an infraction. I was wondering what was the infraction all about.

Minimodding.

I think this classifies under mini-modding, or if they SPAMmed, you replied to the spam. (they usually give the reason, by the way).

Don't worry, I'm sure it'll expire sooner of later...

Yeah, watch that minimodding... I remember when I was an ickle newbie and got a warning for it too.

Most of the time it depends on the mods; mods' opinions of what constitutes as mini-modding can differ greatly. It's always best to just be safe rather than sorry.

EDIT: Eh, as nobody has explicitly stated what mini-modding is, here's what it says in the rules;


3. Do not attempt to mod yourself.

This is called mini-modding. Basically, do not correct people if they're doing something wrong. On the top right of posts, there's a a report button () that you can use to report a person's post. And please do not post in threads saying something like "Good this has been answered and should be closed." That is mini-modding spam.

It was from me.
You got an infraction for replying to spam. The person who made the thread you were posting in was obviously a troll so giving them the attention they wanted (by replying to their thread), didn't help the situation. In future, report them, it's the staff job to handle rule breakers.

I don't get half of the rules either, but I have a forcefield so that's okay.
