XF 1.4 Infractions vs Warnings (import from vB)

    I'm finally about to migrate our largest vBulletin v3.8.x board over to XenForo, but I have a question about how people are structuring their XenForo warnings after migrating from the vBulletin model.

    We currently have a large number of different types of vBulletin infractions defined - and most have the option to make them into a vBulletin warning (no infraction points accrued).

    My current pattern is to give a "warning" infraction (0 points) for first time offenders where I want to educate them about the rules, or for offences which aren't strictly breaking the rules, but are very close and I want to educate the user that if they continue with that type of behaviour, they will receive full infractions and potentially get banned.

    I then have the automatic ban system in vBulletin set up such that most serious infractions will see a user banned on their 3rd full infraction ... basically, a "three strikes and you're out" system.

    Given that XenForo doesn't have the concept of being able to "warn" a warning - how have people managed the transition from vBulletin to XenForo around dealing with vB infractions vs XenForo warnings?

    I will note that I won't be allowing warnings to be defined or modified by the moderators at the time they are given - everything will be defined in advance.

    Simply by creating Minor and Major warnings and educating staff to their use.

    Yes, you could do (e.g.)

    Being a naughty boy (1st offence) = 0 pts
    Being a naughty boy (2+ offence) = 5 pts
    or whatever fits...

    Thanks - I was thinking I might have to do something along those lines.

    Or make the points editable and just have a single warning.
