Warnings are issued in the form of a points scheme ranging from 10%. Once the disciplinary level reaches the indicated 100he member automatically receives a one week temporary ban. When a warning is issued the moderator or admin personnel will PM the member with an explanation of the warning / ban or leave a post in the relevant thread. The level of the warning issued to the member is at the discretion of the moderator/admin.

The Committee has the option to review disciplinary warnings and has the right to remove warnings or increase the level of the warning for any given offence. When warnings / bans are issued in extreme cases a copy of the thread will be kept in an admin archived forum for future reference. Further offences can/will result in immediate expulsion from the Club for a period of no less than two years. The MSC also reserves the right to immediately remove members without warning should the MSC consider this in extreme cases.

In addition to the above official disciplinary actions, the Club may at their discretion give a maximum of three (3) non binding warnings to any club member in regards to his/her actions/conduct.
