Why is it so hard to find the rules-infraction system?

    Am I just blind or an idiot? I can not find anything with this new search method. I get a million hits and can't find what I am looking for, or I keep hitting dead ends.

    Can someone please direct me to the infraction-warnings rules? I found this, but the link does not work...

    Thanks for looking, Imp.
    No, that's not it. I am looking for the listing of infractions with the number of points issued and such.
    Like: how many points = 3 day ban. How many points = 2 weeks ban, etc.
    It also listed the number of points for violations, like -35 for trolling.

    It used to be where that link is, in the quote I posted from Nifty.

    Either that or they're on one of the missing pages. I've looked for them before with no luck.
