Help: Records And Feedback
Records and user feedback are public notes used to keep track of user actions, often those which broke a site rule. These do not place any restrictions or decreased permissions on accounts.
Explanation of record levels:
- Commendation (positive/green record): This serves as an endorsement for exceptional conduct, a virtual pat on the back.
- Notification (neutral/grey record): This will serve as an advisement that you have violated the Code of Conduct. A tap on the shoulder to not do that.
- Warning (negative/red record): This will serve an official warning that you violated the Code of Conduct.
- Suspension (Ban): This is a temporary ban from the site and forums. Go for a walk and think about your life.
- Permanent Ban (Perma Ban): This is a permanent ban from e621.net and all other affiliates. This is reserved for repeated offenses and serious violations of the Code of Conduct.
Typical ways to get a:
- Commendation (positive/green record): Find something to do to help and do it well, and get noticed for it. The best way to get noticed is to be communicative.
- If you see someone doing something well, report them for a commendation <3
- Notification (neutral/grey record): Violate a rule on the site.
- Warning (negative/red record): Often given after a notification, or severely violate a site rule.
- Suspension (Ban): Violate a site rule again after getting a warning for previously breaking that rule.
- Permanent Ban (Perma Ban): Violate the same rule you had a suspension for, or evade a suspension by making a new account or using an alternative account.

- Permanent bans will never expire but may be appealed through email.

- Any positive record has no risk of removal, unless by request of the positive record holder
