Warnings are classified into four different categories, as seen below. If an offense is repeated, the punishment will increase to that of the next level. When the offense reaches level four, a block, admins should refer to our blocking policy.

Only administrators are allowed to warn users. However, anyone can ask an admin to warn a user. Admins may not warn other admins, but bureaucrats may warn them.
