All publicly displayed messages are only limited to English. This includes posts, titles, signatures, profiles and other forms of public display. Warning System #2.1
Members who disobey the rules will be warned or banned depending on what the moderator believes is the appropriate punishment. #2.2
Image Image Members can be warned a maximum of two times consequently. On the third, the member will be immediately banned. This does not mean that you have to have a warning to get banned, moderators may ban you without warnings depending on the offense. #2.3
A warning can have a time bomb unless you're banned. If a time bomb is set, your warning will automatically expire after a certain number of days.
If you believe you do not deserve the warn please contact the moderator who warned you. Talking back to the moderator who gave you the warning with no sense of respect will lead to further warnings.
If you do not know why you received a warning, an email and private message would have been sent to notify you of the reason why you were warned and who warned you. Posting Etiquette (manners) #3.1

To break it down in simple terms, it's considered a trade any time the situation is "If you do this, I'll do that" and selling is offering a product, service, etc. for money. The staff do not appreciate members trying to get around these rules, so please avoid attempting to do so.Spam Rules #4.1
