    +1ing?

    Could someone please define "+1ing" for me? I posted in general, signed on a little while later, to find myself banned. Is this akin to spamming? Because it was a 1day duration, but I don't recall spamming, or breaking any rules for that matter.

    Thanks in advance

    +1'ing could imply multiple ways.

    spamming can be refereed to +1'ing because you're posting just to +1 your post count (1 more post via spamming)

    That's a bit ambiguous. I post to increase my post count, but most of my posts are relative to the topic.

    You don't post to increase post count, you post to take part in discussions.

    +1ing = posting to increase your post count and most will end up being spam

    Normally I would understand how this would apply to me. But I didn't even post that much today. And as far as I know, all posts remained on topic, and were not indicated to be otherwise. By mod or member.

    Post bans are now optional. No one will get post bans unless they want to.

    I never got post banned before so I couldn't have known.

    On Topic : Wait for the ban duration to end and try to figure this out.
