huh.gif Was browsin and responding to a few things on the site earlier and noticed that my posts had 'warn' on them and '0%'
Call me stoopid but was suddenly worried I'd posted something that had offended someone.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what this 'warn' message under my profile means??

If you're naughty, the mods/admins can warn you, causing the rating to rise from 0% to 20% (in 20s to 100) and one of the little blocks go red. It's on every one of your posts, just so you can access it. Nothing to worry about, hehe. If you're good, you should have 0%, but I was naughty once so got a slap on the wrist.

Yep, 0% just means that you're as pure as the driven snow. Whatever that means.

I don't think I've actually let anyone get to 100% before banning them. The mods and I don't take banning people lightly. Usually it's around three strikes before we throw someone out, but there have been people who have had more warnings than that and still remained on here. It depends how much aggravation people are causing. For example, swearing once isn't likely to get you a warning if it's just for emphasis (and not hateful, if it was massively homophobic then it would be likely that you would be banned or at the very least a final warning), swearing in several posts in a row would be likely to get you warned. Continuing to do that after the warning would probably get you a suspension and another warning. If you were still doing it when you returned then you'd probably be banned.

We try to give people enough of a chance to change, but if they fail to do so then we do eventually have to prevent them from interfering with the enjoyment of others. The warning system lets us give people notice that what they're doing is unacceptable.
