Blue mean nothing and are just reminders.
If you accumulate yellow cards you may get a red card which is a ban but I don't think there is a set number of yellows before a red.

You'll be banned temporarily (for a week) if you receive a red card and permanently if you receive a black card.

If you have one active red card and receive a second, you'll receive a black card automatically.

If you have two active yellow cards and receive a third, you'll receive a red card automatically.

If you have three active blue cards and receive a fourth, you'll receive a yellow card automatically.

Why can you not say, surely talking about it will make other users weary of the system therefore users will not do/say something which could risk a card?!

EG I got a blue for something I didn't think you could get a card for!

You get a card if you say what you got them for I don't understand it at all, for exactly the reason you gave!

Any sort of card will result in a ban, unless your cards start to expire first.

No one knows how the card system works, but it's provocative. It gets the people going.

No, they expire after a set amount of time, which you can see here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/rec...userid=1230403

The only possible flaw with the old points system was that if you racked up 0 warning points to 15 warning points in a short space of time, you would get banned (yes we all know that), however after a week when you are unbanned, those 15 warning points would remain for a short period of time on your account. If you committed a smaller offence and got more warning points, you would get another week long ban.... straight after you just came back from the ban! Which was really unfair. Those warning points should expire from the moment you get unbanned, not a week after.

The card system is similar, though. Even when returning from your ban, you will still have active yellow cards won't you?
