    ArkhamNetwork Forum Rules

    The following are the official forum rules for ArkhamNetwork, with each respective punishment listed below in red. You may sometimes receive an optional, automatically generated, pre-typed forum conversation notifying you when you get warned by a staff member.
    Accumulating more than 8 warning points results in an automatic 1 week forum ban. Accumulating more than 18 warning points results in an automatic ban until your warning points drop back below 18.
    If you see forum users breaking these rules, feel free to tag or inform a staff member who is active on the forums, preferably a Mod+ who can warn.
