Infraction points - how do they work?

I'm a bit embarrassed to admit that despite being a member of the forums for over 6 years, I have no idea how the infraction system works here. Reading the Geth thread has made me curious/paranoid about the "2 points for a minor infraction, 3 points for a major infraction" mechanism.

Obviously, accruing points is bad. Are the punishment thresholds public knowledge? Do points disappear over time?

    You can check for expiration dates in your profile.

    Here is the breakdown for infractions

    Warning - 0 Points, mainly to bring attention to borderline behavior
    Minor - 2 Points
    Serious - 3 Points, and an account is jailed while they have three or more points
    At 6 points, you are banned until enough infractions expire for you to drop below 6.
    Permaban - 8 Points, which is generally only done for especially bad behavior or a general history of below acceptable behavior.

    If your account hits 8 points from multiple infractions, you are not necessarily permabanned, but you are definitely on thin ice since 8 points takes quite a few infractions to achieve.

    I have a related question...I know there used to be things you couldn't do while jailed (like quote other posts and whatnot, and that was later changed)...is there any way that jailed accounts are still limited? I wasn't sure.

    You can't make threads, the post timer might be higher, and there might be some other stuff I forget.

    That one seems a little weird to me, now that it's been brought up. Can you explain the reasoning for it?

    Nobody likes me but that's okay. I'm used to it.

    People tend to get petty and abuse reports after a jailing.

    Probably, but it's been said more than once that report buttons can be taken from specific users. Is it really frequent enough in occurrence that it's better to make it a function of jailing rather than handling it when it comes up? D:

    Cool, thanks for the explanation. :^:

    And sometimes the admins let the robots wear the big pants, and the robots go all MURDER ALL HUMANS with their newfound powers.

    Is THAT what happened? I haven't posted in a few days, I wake up and have 6 infraction points and red alerts on my profile for insufficient valentines days commitment. Would have been nice to know I'm working on getting banned by firing those arrows out.

    Holiday infractions last for a day or so. It isn't the end of the world.

    I wish we could do this over on the 2k games community boards. One poster in particular after being infracted for routinely insulting other members spammed 22 reports against any post that remotely disagreed with him (calling it trolling). It literally made the report forum a gigantic mess and finding legitimate reports impossible.

    Edit: I went back and counted specifically.
