    Old infractions on settings page.

    In 2012, I posted to gripe about something on one of the game forums without thinking about the proper solution and got an infraction for it.

    That was seven years ago and it’s still incredibly embarrassing. I’d like to think I’ve become a wiser person since then. Yet it’s still there every time I look at my settings. Would it be unreasonable to have an “Infraction History” tab under the settings for something that old?

    Why do you care what someone on the Internet thinks about something you posted seven years ago? You shouldn't even be bothered by what someone thinks about what you post today. Your opinions are your opinions. If someone else can't handle them without going on a mod-fit, then let your forum avatar wear the "Banned" badge with pride for as long as they feel like your scary words deserve. I do.

    I'm not entirely sure what you are asking, but most infractions expire after a few months. A listing on your profile for a seven year old infraction is literally only there for history/records and isn't held against you in any way. Additionally, no one can see your infractions on your profile but you and moderators/admins.

    That is comforting to know. About 4 years ago, I got an infraction for something I said that I wouldn't say today. Please don't change the infraction policy from the way it is now. It is an interesting window into just how much my opinions have changed over the past few years.

    A lot of times the original comment is left and "Infracted" is added to it, so posting this is just going to get people searching through your comments.

    It’s not other people seeing it I’m worried about- I know they can’t. It’s just embarrassing to have to see it every time I update my sig. My suggestion is to have a separate tab in Settings called “Moderation History” or something for expired infractions. Hopefully that makes more sense.

    You shouldn't be able to see your moderated posts when you go in to change your signatures.

    I think he means when he clicks on Settings he can see it before he goes in to edit his Sig. Like I can see my "Sig too big" infraction under all subscribed threads.

    With that attitude, everyone is going to own you.

    Huh, interesting. When I press settings, I have no means to see my infractions unless recently but they aren't. I have to click my name (or 'My Profile') for the profile to see the above tabs ('About Me', 'Friends', 'Infractions', 'Mentions', 'Quotes', and 'Post Areas'.)

    I wait, now I know what you mean.

    You would like them to make it a pre-hidden tab, or an activated tab in the menu, for the field located under 'Subscribed Threads with new posts' (https://www.mmo-champion.com/usercp.php). I see it now, never noticed it was there to be honest. Secondary box named, 'Latest Infractions Received (Note: Expire dates are for points, not bans)'.

    But then again, it is your mistakes after all, can't sweep it all under the carpet.

    I like my list too. My wrap sheet gives me street cred around these parts

    If you're really that fragile, the internet might not be a safe place for you.
    But hey, at least it's a reminder of what not to do or say.

    I dunno, I don't really think it's a big deal. I have one infraction and honestly I 100% stand by what I got infracted for, so screw it, badge of honor. I'm honestly surprised I don't have more.

    Nobody can see it except you, so just ignore that tab. Maybe use it as motivation to not say stuff that might not age well.
    If you reply to me with a full essay I'm probably not going to bother reading it, sorry.

    My infractions are all badges of honor. Scars that I carry from my myriad battles against evil. How dare you suggest they be taken away from me!

    Since the discussion has veered, I'm closing this now. The suggestion has been seen.
