<img src="https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/w/images/f/fe/Warning-card.png" align="right">On TSR we have our Community Rules to help keep the community a friendly and useful place. If you do something on TSR that goes against our rules you’ll receive a Reminder, to let you know what you did wrong and to explain how to avoid doing it again. However, if you continue to break our rules after receiving Reminders, or do something more serious, you will receive a Warning Card or potentially a Ban.<br>

How Warning Cards work<br><br>

In the circumstance where you've broken the Community Rules four times in a row or broken one of our rules in a more serious way (e.g. for cheating) you will receive an official Yellow Warning Card.

If you've received a Yellow Card, you've done something that seriously goes against our Community Rules and it mustn't happen again. Please read the Community Rules again or ask one of our Community Team for help to understand them better via Ask A Moderator or Ask A Section Leader.

On TSR, we allow three chances for Yellow Cards:

If you receive three Yellow Cards, or simply break one of our rules in a serious way, you will be banned from posting on TSR...

How Bans work<br>

<img src="https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/w/images/0/07/Red-and-black-cards.png" align="right">Bans come in two forms:

  1. 1) A Red Card temporary ban lasts for one week. They are given if you have posted something that breaks the rules in a serious way (like porn or being offensive to another member).<br>
  2. 2) Black Cards are usually only given out to spammers, bullies or people who continue to troll or be offensive to other members despite receiving other Cards advising them to stop.
