Warnings points cannot be appealed and will not be removed once they are applied. They are listed and visible on your profile to forum administrators forever once they are issued as they do not expire.

Due to a large number of recent offenses on the forums violating forum rules (specifically section 3.0, 3.1, 3.6) the following rules have been created to prevent further abuse and violation of the now documented rules and regulations.

All current members of the forums registered prior to these rules being implemented will have their forum posts and reputation recounted to reflect this adjustment and all posts which violate any of the rules stated above will be removed.
