What does this mean

I found this in the new science section rules and I don't understand what it means:

"Violators of the section rules will garner warnings, infractions and possibly lose access to sections."

Is it ok if someone explains it to me? Thanks lovelies <3

Just to clarify I'm asking so if i do post in science section I don't do anything to land myself in trouble

Re: What does this mean

It is the same general set of consequences that applies to guideline violations in the rest of the forum. The difference here is that each science section has additional guidelines for the form and content of discussions, which are written in the section descriptions.

Typically, we will first give a warning when someone violates one of the guidelines (for example, insulting other members or posting links to commercial websites or making posts that are significantly off-topic). Warnings are simply meant to remind members of ADDF's rules and etiquette and to point out where these have been breached (whether accidentally or knowingly).

Repeat offenders (who will have been warned, so should be aware of the guidelines) may receive formal infractions, and they'll be notified if they receive an infraction. Infractions carry point values in line with the seriousness of the guideline violation.

Enough infractions in a relatively short period of time will result in actions such as banning from the section or from ADDF altogether (for some defined time period, or permanently), depending on the nature, seriousness, and frequency of the guideline violations. These more serious consequences are generally reserved for members who repeatedly violate the guidelines despite warnings and infractions, or for those who do something really egregious (like post blatant spam).

We don't enjoy imposing heavy-handed consequences on members -- so we encourage everyone to take note of the section descriptions and to engage in spirited but respectful discussion.

Re: What does this mean

Garner basically just means "get" or "receive".

Re: What does this mean

Sorry -- I misunderstood what you misunderstood!

(Thanks for the assist, dvdnvwls and Abi!)

Glad it's cleared up now.
