    If you have a case for your infraction to be lifted early, you will need to contact the moderator who gave you the infraction.

    They are under no obligation to remove your infraction, but if you are calm, polite, and explain your situation, then the mod might see fit to lift your infraction early. It is up to them in the first instance.

    If they say no, then you can appeal against the infraction to an admin, but you must speak to the mod who issued the infraction first, otherwise this will be seen as mod surfing and you could get yourself another infraction. And nobody wants that.

    No matter what, you definitely shouldn't send PMs to every mod or admin, as well as submitting a support ticket, and a report, and starting a thread on the forum to complain. That's only going to get our backs up - our mods get enough abuse as it is and we have a zero tolerance policy to any kind of mod abuse.

    You can see it in the "Warnings" tab on your profile. After the number of points you have, it'll also list the expiry date.

    And now you've been warned again for attempting to mod-surf. The details of what constitutes mod-surfing/mod abuse is at the bottom of this thread here: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/updated-bhw-member-levels.889577/
    If you had gone through the Newbie Guide, you would have been able to find a thread outlining your exact issue here: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/i...lace-thread-can-you-remove-it-for-me.1040795/

    far as i no if a mod gives you an infraction you have to
    contact that mod if you believe its unfair.
    only if you believe your treated unfairly can you go above
    them and pm apricot or damian admins.

    i will only say this. in 10 yrs ive had 3 over turned but you
    better be dam sure 100% what was done to you was
    not deserved . be 100% sure , or just ride it out until feb.

    breaking the rules and saying im sorry after probably wont
    revoke an infraction. only in extreme cases if a mod has
    over stepped will help come from above.

    I issued yours and you didn't learn from it as you tried to sell twice since then but all I did was remove your promotional posts and sent you alerts.

    Thank you for your response, I didn't realise I was acting against the rules, checked the newbie thread since then.

    I actually have a warning point for a parody/satire post I made a few weeks ago, which because of the title I believe the mod took seriously (my mistake, not criticisng the decision) this is what I was referring to. Was hoping to appeal this decision so I could open a marketplace thread but think I will leave it for now since I may have skirted the line with my posts today which were meant in good faith.
