What are the little red boxes under some peoples that say warn. Would I be warning them? I just didn't think I had that power, plus it's not all just some, and sometimes it's one sometimes two. I know I should know, but I don't please help.

When u break the t and c severely its minus 1,000 points and a warn tag for three days. If you get three in three days time you receive a posting ban.

Usually these warn icons are for threads that the user posted and the post was completely irrelevant. Or wayyyy off topic.

Hope it helps. (you can click on the warn to see what post they were warned about)

When you're naughty, you get these little presents from staff.

I believe three-strikes and they make you invisible...or blow you up...or something...


Don't be naughty.

I've never seen that before! Now I have to go looking for these rebels!

I love ATS, every day I learn something new!

Can you see the WARN yourself or can others see it only?

Thanks, my mouse had changed form on it when I rolled over it, and I was tempted to click to see what it was but I didn't want to mess anyone up because I can't resist the urge to click.

Thanks again

apparently they are for when you get offended by someone else's offensive thread and you comment about how offensive it was and rebut it, well then you get warned.

Hey! Thats not cool bringing your grievance into a freshman forum question. Raise your grievance through the complaints button.

OP if like the above poster you have a warn sign, its not for what they have claimed, the poster has been warned for violating T and C.

Lol, thanks for the beautifully illustrated example. I understand, at first I noticed the buttons were able to clicked upon, but I wasn't sure if that would result in me warning someone. After I realized that not everyone had these fantastic little tags (not to mention I haven't been long enough to have any power) I thought I'd ask before I "blew someone up".


Thanks everyone

I was recently given a warn by mistake . The mod in fact was only trying to off topic me but they hit the wrong button and gave me a warning


The mod promptly apologized and reimbursed me my points however I was left with the warn tag for the 3 days .
