Warnings Duration and modification

Post by Seijin_Dinger » Wed Feb 04, 2009 3:13 pm

Is there a way to set it so that warnings have no maximum duration? The default is set to 90 days before the warning expires. I would like it to be set so that it never expires, making a record of how many times we have had to warn a user.

On a similar note, is there also a way to remove a warning that may have been given on accident or similar misuse of the system?

How does one issue warnings?

Then just set it to something very high, like 9999 days? Also, the warnings are not thrown away after the time you set there, the counter of warnings will just don't count the warning anymore, but when you go to the "User notes" in the MCP, the warning is still listed there.

in viewtopic, if you have permissions to do so, there is a triangle with the point pointing upward with an exclamation mark inside. you can also warn through the MCP
