Rules & Warning Manual
This is the Warning Manual for OneHallyu and the set of rules that users must follow. Moderators will be using this as a set of guidelines along with their own judgment to assess the severity and degree of warnings. Please note that the punishment may be more severe if they feel the circumstance is necessary. This includes, but is not limited to, increasing warning points, adding suspensions and bans, and skipping earlier "levels" opting for more severe punishments.
It is the responsibility of every user to thoroughly read through and understand this manual. Claiming to have not been aware of a rule will not override any punishment given. By creating an account and posting on the forum, you are acknowledging you have read through OneHallyu's rules and terms.
Please note that the following warning points do not expire. Warning points may be removed during an amnesty event hosted by an administrator at their discretion.

2nd Chance Account and Probation:
- If at anytime you receive 10 warning points, your account will be banned. However, you are allowed the opportunity to make one 2nd chance account.
- Users that have had their first account banned for truly egregious offenses (to be determined at the moderating team's discretion) will not be afforded the opportunity to create a second chance account.
- Upon being banned, all won, unique awards, regular awards, tokens, marketplace items, and etc will be forfeit.
- Under no circumstances will any of the above listed items be transferred to the 2nd chance account.
- All 2nd chance accounts will automatically begin with 5 warning points (this is done in place of the previous probationary period). All broken rules will receive the normal punishments as per the rule manual.
- If at anytime the 2nd chance account receives 10 warning points, the user will receive a permanent IP ban.
