So your name is displayed in ORANGE. What does this mean? It means that sometime in the past you abandoned one or more of your topics without returning the votes. You will not be permitted to ask for any return favors or post any new vote request topics until you have contacted (PM) an admin to arrange to clear your account. While you are waiting for a reply you should vote for 10 others without asking for a return favor, this includes keeping your signature free of any links. That will give you a head start. From there the admin you contact will tell you how many more you need to do, or in extreme cases, what sort of community service tasks you must complete for the forum in order for the restrictions to be removed from your account. Please note that creating a new account or asking others to post for you to bypass these restrictions will only result in getting you banned.
Once the restriction has been removed, you will be placed on probation (yellow) until your warning bar reaches green again. Warnings are reset +10% each 30 days as long as you are active on the forum and no new violations occur. Any further abandonments without returning votes will result in a 1 year suspension and/or permanent ban from the forum.
