    This maybe should be put into Feedback.

    How long? Until they expire. I don't think there's a set time frame.

    Not sure if you can get off early. Sometimes, a poster can talk to a mod if they think an IP was unfairly given. BUT, do it privately. Use the Contact Us thing at the bottom of each page.

    And, a suggestion? State your case, but don't argue. That will only get you into further trouble.

        Your probationary status is tied to the infraction, as Peanut said. When the infraction expires, so will the points.

        When the points are gone you'll be back to normal status.

        Without getting into too much detail about the issue, you're certainly always welcome to use the Contact Us form, but I think that in this case it's unlikely to result in a removal of the points.

        I'm not saying that to be mean, but rather to let you know the reality of the situation. I'd hate to see you get frustrated with the process while trying to get something reduced or removed when it isn't likely to happen.

        You are welcome to exercise that option, however, and we encourage you to do so if you feel there's been an error.

          Just a quick word of advice from someone that has done plenty of dumb stuff and amassed many infractions...........they go away so it is best to let it alone and do the time.

          It will expire unless you get yourself suspended or banned for not letting it be. It is what it is. Poking it with a stick just makes it worse.

            One question I have about probation. I have 2 infractions right now. One is for 50 points and another is for 5 points. The 50 pointer expires next Thursday, the 5 pointer expires on January 3rd. I know they overlap right now.

            Will I get all or some of my privileges back on Thursday or will I have to wait until January 3rd? I didn't know if different levels offer restrictions or not. Like a 5 pointer you get some features as opposed to the 50 pointer where you lose everything except posting. I just really want to feel like a complete member around here! Lesson learned!

            Any help is greatly appreciated and CP will be awarded once I get it back.

                  Hang tough bud.......I sure felt weird when I was on probation. I certainly didn't like the rules (which have been discussed in this section before), like not beng able to edit or send pms or give out CPs. There are reasons, because it prevents certain types of posters from taking additional personal shots at others......but that doesn't sound like you (nor did it apply to me).

                  Be cool....look forward to your full return.....keep posting, because you are 100% CP worthy!!!!

                      Yeh, 55 points aint so bad. Ive managed to rack up 225 since my invasion of the boards.

                      There is a life after infractions. Just be smart and dont keep racking them up like me. Trust me, it is much better to play nice.

                      Besides, you are much much much more likely to be heard and listened to if you are posting the right way.
