    the bluelight infraction system automatically imposes a temporary ban on users based on a system of points (bluelight infractions are worth 1 point).

    the current ban durations based on accumulated points are:

    2 points = 1 day
    4 points = 3 days
    5 points = 7 days
    6 points = 2 weeks
    7 points = 1 month
    8 points = 3 months
    9 points = 6 months
    10 points = 1 year

    you'll notice there's no ban level for three points. that means a user can disrupt a forum and receive a 1-day ban when they accumulate 2 points. they can return from that temporary ban and immediately disrupt the forum in the same manner for no penalty. this obviously makes no sense.

    the infraction system was changed to include a 3-point automatic ban. the schedule is now:

    2 points = 1 day
    3 points = 3 days
    4 points = 7 days
    5 points = 2 weeks
    6 points = 1 month
    7 points = 3 months
    8 points = 6 months
    9 points = 1 year
    10 points = 2 years


    all infraction points expire after 12 months.

    i have just revised the infraction system and it's now significantly simpler. the following are available:

    • a one-point expiring (12 months) infraction
    • a one-point non-expiring infraction
    • a two-point "joined to spam or source" infraction

    typically a first offense will get an expiring warning. then the one-point expiring infraction will be used. after that, non-expiring infractions will follow.
