    I have just refreshed my knowledge at https://www.blackhatworld.com/help/terms
    Is there any other place I should checkup on the rules?

    Also I see 3 infractions will result in a ban. Is this 3 active infractions or 3 in total?
    Eg I see this violation has an expiry date. At this time does my number of infractions reset back to zero?

    I tried to rpely to the mssg from the mod who gave me the infraction but it wouldn't let me, error said my mssg was spam like.

    Just after some clarification on the above questions from anybody who knows.
    I'm not arguing the infraction, I did break the rules, although unintentially, I haven't read them for a VERY long time and after months away from the forum a few may have slipped my mind.

    It's 3 active warnings which will cause you to be banned. Expired warnings don't count, but if you're caught repeating the same thing it's a clear sign you've not learned from your mistakes.

    If you're trying to include a url maybe that is causing that reply to the notification?

    Your infractions never get reset to zero, just the active points.

    Thanks for that. Initially I did provide the link to terms but then I edited so it wasn't a link so I don't know.

    Thanks for the clarification MisterF

    As for the rules, the link you posted above covers most of it.

    you can also check for sticky posts in each subforum as there are often rules specific to each forum posted there as well.

    lastly you can check through the newbie guide for general best practices and guides for getting the most out of the forum - https://www.blackhatworld.com/forums/newbie-guide.242/

    Thanks everyone.
    Honestly it was a mistake on my part and I dont want to be booted out.

    I guarantee it wont be happening again but it would be good to refresh my knowledge of the rules.
