    Why don't you just get you Pro membership and apply for aop, then it won't be an issue.

    Yes you get a Notice When your banned ( at least I did ) I accidently posted a reply in 1 of the RESTRICTED zones without realizing it .

    I lost track of where I was once and posted in AOP. Got a polite reminder PM and that was that.

    Honestly, I visit give or take 6 home owners a day or sometimes I'm with one all day. I really don't need to be engaging more after hours on my own time - I need to be Asking Our Pros myself!

    I don't understand why a Professional in our trade who qualifies for pro membership, particularly one who claims to know a member of the Membership Committee, wouldn't BE a Professional Member on this site.

    As was previously mentioned, it takes 3 posts to earn a 10 day time out.

    You weren't give time off for a single post in AOP. Nobody has and nobody will.

    Im a professional and have no desire to submit to this AOP thing....lame I know, but thats my excuse.

    I have also been slapped a few times in the past for unwittingly posting in this section. The MOD's know how I feel about AOP Im sure.

    Currently we have 123 pages of post tracking violations of posting in the AOP forums without approval. JP and I do a search to make sure that its the third violation, before we give someone points for posting in the AOP forums without approval.

    Well if I had accidently posted 2 prior to the one before I was banned and informed about doing the big NO NO.

    I was never informed of them prior to the ban notice , nor was there any mention of previous infractions in the ban notice just loss of 10 point ?.

    Everyone here gets a warning/several warnings before receiving points....

    I have got them and I have received points prior to complying with simplicity

    Its just how we roll

    Not in any particular order, nor am I sure its all he warnings you got, just the few I found in a quick search. And you don't lose 10 points, we give you 10 points, and the software bans you for 10 days.

    I honestly never saw the ON LINE warnings that you posted links to , I was under the impression warnings would have been sent in the form of a PRIVATE message as the one telling me I was banned was sent.

    Makes no real difference as I survived the 10 days and really have no interest in continuing this debate. You asked if warnings were sent I posted that I recieved one.

    Thanks for removing my ban prior to the ten days. I was actually so excited to find this site I was just asking away and posting. I was getting bored with the regular posts, and i filled out the sign up form started posting in the AOP and then lost access. So is there a easy way to get the star?
