Veteran Status and Banning

I hope I'm allowed to ask two questions in one thread. Somethings I've been wondering about for a while:

1) How many warnings do you get before you get banned?

2) And how long do you have to be a member and/or how many number of posts gets you to veteran status? I've seen people who joined in 2013 reach 'vet' status yet others who joined earlier aren't. Just curious how its worked out.

Thanks in advance!

1) It's technically 3-4, but any banning is done on a case-by-case basis.

One thing that confuses people is that you (each member) has five squares that get filled in as you receive warnings. However, the first warning fills up two squares, the second warning fills up the third square, and the third warning fills up the final two squares. I have no idea why that happens like that, but I know it's confused people before. Warnings and bannings are actually a lot of work for us (or more than we're interested in most of the time) and some of us (okay, me) are prone to messing it up, so it doesn't happen as often as some people seem to think.

2) I'm not positive about the exact numbers, but it's based on post count. I think veteran status is reached at 7,000 posts (I'm purely basing that on having seen someone's name change colors earlier today). It is also possible for staff to manually change member status, so occasionally we'll go through and "promote" some, and sometimes we move people into specific groups for other purposes, too.

Thanks for answering, Lysie!

Gosh, I doubt I'll ever get to veteran status if the criterion is 7000 posts. I'm taking forever to get to 1000.

Haha...it will never happen for me. I've been a member since December 2007 but only have 31 posts! I'm always in "lurker" status :)
