You can be banned for a certain time (1, 7 and 30 days) or forever depending on administrator’s decision. Site administrator determines ban period. The email with the following information will be sent to your e-mail:
- the site you were banned;
- ban duration;
- site rules that were infringed (if those were published by the site).
In case there is no ban time mentioned, it means you were banned forever:
In case you’re banned, you won’t be able to take part in discussions, but you are still able to read articles, site news and comments.
In case you did not receive mentioned e-mail, please read this article.
Also you can be banned automatically by the system, because of gaining certain amount of "flag inappropriate" marks. The amount of flags you need to be banned is set up by the site administrator.
