  • Infraction Auto Ban Question


    I'm setting up my forum to use the Infraction system, but I have a few questions about the Automatic Ban system.

    (for the purpose of discussion, lets say that each of my Infraction categories are set to 'Never let points expire')

    I have an automatic ban set at 8 points, which lasts for two days. If a user reaches 8 points, I understand they will be banned for the two days. However, after the ban, do their points expire? Or do they stay at 8 points still? I want to set up a gradual ban rate, so 2 days = 8pts, one week = 12pts, two weeks = 16pts, one month ect = 20pts. So I guess my question is once a user comes back from a two day ban at 8 points, will they lose all their points, or will their next ban be at 12 points for a week?

    Sorry for sounding impatient, we're doing a stack of forum maintenance in the next couple of days and I wouldn't mind getting this fixed ASAP

      I don't know but it's easy enough to test. Create a test user, apply the infraction and wait to see what happens. My guess is that the infractions points will be gone, otherwise I would consider this a bug.
