    If you collect enough warning points you can redeem them for coffee mugs, T-shirts, etc. from our online store.

    Welcome to Religious Forums. :)

    Click on the "alerts" box in the top right hand corner and scroll down to "alert preferences". You can also find "alert preferences" on the user box. (it has your profile picture, also top right hand corner). Once you've got it, clear a few of the options so you get fewer alerts.

    (you've been here a day, posted 77 messages and got 10 likes- so the number of likes and responses is what is jamming it up probably).

    You only get those if you break the rules. (See Forum Rules)

    You alerts should clear automatically.

    The categories mostly speak for themselves but if you misplace a topic it's not generally a rule violation and it will be moved. Please see the rules for how to conduct yourself and not have warnings given you.

    Thanks.

    Okay thanks the thread that I'm referring to is "faith?" So I put it in interfaith category however someone questioned it so was he just being obnoxious or was it in the wrong category?

    Mods are the only people who can contact you with alerts. If it is deemed to be in the wrong category we will move it and notify you with an alert or sometimes a private message.

    It's automatic, based on responses within a given time.

    It depends.

    You write interesting and thought provoking posts. You've never been mean, as far as I recall.
    But the flip side of that is "If you never fail you aren't trying hard enough!"

    Spread your rule violations out over time and you're good to go.

    @Alone, the "Mark forums read" link... top left hand corner of the screen from the homepage. I think that does it. But hover over "Forums" first.. or click on it to see that option... it's a link...
