    I'm not concerned with the reasoning and it's not possible to be entertaining without a humourless numpty awarding points. It was just that in a moment of weakness I allowed myself to become curious about the strange timespan that the points lasted. icon7.gif

    I believe there have been discussions with your probation officer and that it coincides with your licence conditions ending

    I believe the infraction in question was due to stay on account for 3 months, just took over 5 months to be applied.

    That's 255 days or 8 months 10 days or 6120 hours or 367,200 minutes or 22,032,000 seconds. Rather an odd looking time period.
    The illustrious one suspects that the reason for the lengthy expiration date is due to the fact that infraction expiration dates (for the same type of infraction) keep getting added to the previous installation. All of your infractions, given by humourless numpties of course, have been for "Lack of respect for, insulting, or harassment of other members". Each time you were hit by that specific infraction, the expiration date extended by an additional 3 months. However, I'll double check with another illustrious member of the team to make sure that there's no error here and will update you.

    Edit: Confirmed the above. Here's an explanation from VBulletin:

Since the user already had an active spamming posts infraction, this new infraction's expiration time is added to the end time of the previous infraction. Effectively, this new infraction will now end 1 day and 23 hours later instead of the default of 1 day. If the user was given a third infraction, it would be added to the end of the second infraction as well.

    As an angelic poster who very rarely gets infractions, I'm not personally affected but I've never understood that rule. Seems too much of a double whammy to me.

    Correct, and big of you to admit it.

    Oh well. At least it means I kept my points while England won and lost an Ashes Series - that could be the first time ever.

    Happy New Year.
