Question
editing a warned/infracted post

Jim,

I was awarded a point for the following post: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showpost.php?p=21941744

In this post, I made "I" statements and while my post was sarcastic (being sarcastic isn't against site rules), I'm not sure how calling myself names is provocation.

So, while I don't agree with the point, I'll edit the post, however I'm unable to do so.
Can you please:
1- tell me if there a difference between a warned post and an infracted post?
2- tell me why I've lost my ability to edit,
3- (if required) restore my ability to edit a warned post?

Thank you.

Ok, can you please tell me why "it was removed again" and how I get it back? To my knowledge, it was never removed previously.

Since that incident (in which my ban was reversed by jbourke) back in feb, I've been a relatively good participant with only a couple warnings.

Also Jim, I'm curious if there are some other rules about warnings that are undefined on your rules page. To me, it reads clearly that infractions are forgiven:

"Infractions "age" and are removed from a user's infraction level after a period of time elapses."

So this implies to me that some of the mistakes I made earlier in the year should have been forgiven by now?

I'm not sure why it was removed. It looks like it was removed by a mod.

That is correct. You currently have no active warnings.

Thank you for the edit and have a great weekend!

Last questions:

Since it was removed by a mod, how can I avoid that happening in the future?

Since all my infraction points are removed/forgiven, what of my "history" could be used against me in the future? I don't see anything about that in the rules page, but I suspect there is an unwritten rule regarding users who receive repeated warnings?

Take care,

Gary

The best way is to not break any site rules but if a post does cross the line be sure to edit it as requested by the mod. This is something you are currently doing so I don't see any future issues.

Any user with multiple pages of warnings does raise a red flag but current posting history is what is most important. You should be fine if you stay within the rules. Thanks for the post.
