    Haha, you guys have been really naughty going off topic in this thread!

    I wonder if someone goes off topic, how strict do we have to be about that? I mean if someone starts advertising their stuff in a thread that's obvious, but often people just make a little joke or mention something else that popped up in their head and that wasn't with bad intentions. What about that? Lots of people do it, including me (but I always mention 'this is off-topic', not just hijacking the thread)

    I agree with the whole "it's like a real conversation point"

    I know you're making a funny but you can actually see your infractions when you go to your profile and click the "infractions' tab.

    I can't find the 'infractions' tab that Salome mentions, but perhaps it is a moot point, unless you have the tendency, as Amulya says, to try to "hijack" the thread. I think we all veer away once in awhile, with little quips, and such. I interpret that as good ol' conversation in passing. Salome and our erstwhile volunteer moderators are simply targetting the really extreme abusers. Keep cool, you'll do okay.

    first- I am so glad I am not the only one who uses "making a funny" i say it and I sometimes get the strangest looks...

    second - I was actually serious. I don't want to get booted.

    Alosha,

    Fifth-over tab, with the "about Alosha, statistics, friends", etc tabs.

    Hope that helps.

    Perhaps only moderators can see it? Because I just see four tabs . . .

    I can't find it, either...maybe it only shows up if we misbehave?

    yeah I was thinking that too, that maybe only moderators can see it to give infraction, and that it only shows up for others after you get one. So if you can't find it then you didn't misbehave
    I think there will be sent a automatic message too, with the reason for infraction, and the moderator can expand on the subject as well, within that message.
    If you go back and read the new rules again you can see that off topic-infraction is only one point and to get booted you need many more.
