    A little improvement to help noobs

    I've only been a member here for about a week and just been given an infraction for something that's a little trivial, I didn't benefit from it and a little headsup telling me not to do it again would have been more than enough fir a 1st time offence.

    I posted a request for a Lynda account in the giveaway section as it was the closest section in the marketplace, I wasn't posting a "would like to buy" or "would like to sell" or a "would like to trade" post, I was purely asking for help and as I did ask for a freebie, the giveaway section was the obvious choice.

    I used to be staff in a number if we'll known warez forums and I understand you have to follow (and uphold) the rules, but giving an instant points deduction for a 1st infraction in somebodies 1st week here is a bit of an overkill.

    Somebody mentioned in my thread that it was the wrong section so I apologised and actually went off and purchased what I needed. Surely a slap on the wrist should have sufficed? I do like this forum and spend a lot of time reading the numerous threads but it could out other people off visiting if we have a police state here which goes against everything this board stands for!

    I understand what I did wrong accept my punishment though, just wanted to voice my concern and hope in the future mods may be a bit more sympathetic to noobs

    This is an idea to help improve the site so is in the correct section

    Infractions expire over time anyway so the points will be gone after a while.

    I understand that, but some people would be put off quite easily by actions like that
