Operators can block users who are deemed not willing to perform normal activities due to serious regulatory violations, or who are extremely frequent to block due to regulatory violations, indefinitely.

Operators may issue a warning or a caution instead of blocking to users who have violated regulations slightly and users who are deemed to have violated regulations due to inexperience in regulations.

  • The warning is in effect for three months.

  • After receiving the warning, the user may lift the restriction on the editing right and opinion right due to the warning after checking the regulation.
