The warned post is currently hidden from other users to give you a chance to edit it. Once you edit your post it will be visible to other users again and all record of this rule violation will be removed from your account.
Otherwise, your infraction will stay in your account until it ages for a certain number of days. If you accumulate a large number of points your account may be temporarily suspended.

For this violation, you have been given: 1 point(s).

After 11-17-2014, this infraction will be automatically forgiven.

An exhaustive list of rules for the site can be found on the FlyingGiants Rules page.

There is no further penalty for being warned other than the accumulation of points. You may accumulate 10 points before being subjected to a 5 day temporary ban from the site. Very few users reach the 10 point level by accident so if this is your first or second infraction, please accept the infraction point as merely a friendly reminder about the rules of the site.

An administrator will perform a review of the infraction sometime within the next several days, at which time the infraction will either be reversed or confirmed. If you feel that you've received the infraction point in error please feel free to initiate a thread in the Site Suggestions / Complaints forum. Address the administrators with your specific objection and they will attempt to assist you if a mistake has been made.

The reason you have been warned is because:

Reason: Excessive advertising (Spam)
We allow one advertisement per week per forum per user. An advertisement is any content designed to sell or publicize an event, good, or service. Note that certain areas of the site (including the classifieds and vendor sections) are exempt from this rule.

The moderator who warned you entered this comment:

All the best,
FlyingGiants

I would appreciate an explanation as to how I broke a single rule.

My post was meant to direct a friend to a post on another site, relevant to the conversation at hand. It prevented rehashing a multi post discussion that had already occurred.

I feel this "infraction" given was an error on the moderators part, not mine.

Best,
3dbandit

It's been less than a week. The appeal process can take up to two weeks.

Due to a hight volume of spam coming from the other site we do have to enforce the rule on this one. I'm sure at some point everything will calm down and it will be back to normal. I checked and your ability to edit that post is open. Your option is to keep the point (which is no big deal) or edit the post and the point will be removed. I hope this helps.
