    Basically it's for any post that's being discriminatory (as Azran Flame says), but isn't quite volatile enough to be considered trolling. So anyone who's post may be on topic but makes remarks in it that are condescending to a particular race, gender, sexuality, disability, etc.

    For example, if you said "I don't understand" and someone replied along the lines of "Well of course not, you're a girl and girls never understand anything.", that would probably qualify for the infraction. If the post was "Oh my god, you stupid ****ing idiot, how can you not understand it's ****ing obvious isn't it, stupid *****!" then that would be trolling.

    Not the best examples, but it's the dumbed down explanation.

    Would depression count as a disability? Also, would handicapped people count as a 'protected' class?

    would one get points if they were talking about trading a hackmon to someone else who wasnt the person they were trading with, but never traded the hackmon? wanted to know.

    I'd really don't want to discuss a hypothetical Case and you make Poor choices based on my information. But, Most infractions like this depends on the context, We infract on a Case by case Basis, and by staff that usually posts that section. I've only used the trading sections a few times, so I will not comment futher.

    I will not comment about the Infraction you recently got. Ask a Smod or a Admin.

    I think it depends on which part of the forum you're posting.
    People at general discussion and competitive section are quite generous when it comes to giving out green bricks.

    By the way, what is a chain PM? Is it what it is to PMs what double-posting is to the forum?

    Chain PMs would be much like chain emails, I would think, ie things like "forward this PM to X people or something bad will happen to you".

    So, if that's the case, would you get an infraction for double-PMing someone in the same PM thread?

    No, you wouldn't get infracted for PMing someone twice in response to one PM.

    If you were to repeatedly send someone PMs really close together/before they respond, and they were to report it, then you could get infracted for spamming.

    I should point out that only time staff can see PMs are when they're reported.

    Other Staff can see the message send with an infraction, but this is mainly for keeping track of staff/user activity.

    Hi, so I JUST got a 3 point infraction for "Disobeying the Rules of a specific sub-forum" and I found this forum out of curiosity. You did say that a person must have gotten a warning first, but I got the infraction completely out of nowhere. No warning, just BAM, infraction. And this was for a comment, on topic, short and to the point, BUT wasn't following format... kind of strict. It's kind of funny because I'm hardly a rule breaker whatsoever AND I'm fairly new here. XD

    You did say that a person must have gotten a warning first
    Where is this said?

    Warnings are not something that will be given before an infraction. That depends on the rule, the section, and the mod giving the infraction - some may be more inclined to give warnings than infractions, but sections differ in how moderation is handled. You can always PM the mod who gave the infraction if you think a warning was more suited, but there's nothing saying that first infringements are warnings only. (Especially when it takes 5 infractions of the more common rule breakages to hit the ban limit in the first place).
    4. What's the difference between a warning and infraction?
    A warning is worth 0 points, while an infraction adds points to your total. Warnings are often used for borderline offenses. It is mostly meant to say "I won't give you points for this but don't do it again."
    And in the case of your infraction, the thread the offending post was in had the following in the first post, in larger text:
    Failure to follow these rules will result in your post being deleted and you receiving an infraction.
    ...with said thread titled 'Friend Safari Thread V2 ~*READ THE RULES OR DIE!*~'. So personally I think that's fair enough - there was a fair bit of warning. Just give more attention to thread titles/opening posts in future, and the points will expire soon enough too.

    The Bumping rule applies to Non-Sticky/Normal threads. But getting an infraction is actually up to the member of staff moderating the section. Some threads may get unofficial Immunity from Bumping infractions. But at least two people can keep a "dead" thread technically alive as long they want.

    About the rule discussing fan-made games/emulators. I assume that means we cannot put anything in our signayures and/or speak of them in VMs?

    If it's off topic in the thread then most likely.

    Correct, it's forumwide and Serebii dislikes stuff like emulators and etc.

    Mind you, if the game doesn't infringe on copyright it's fine, but stuff like Pokemon rom hacks aren't.
