There has been some confusion as of late as to how infractions actually work. I decided it would make sense to detail just exactly how they work along with banning and so-on.
A warning is like a fraction accept it has a point value of "0". Points are largely arbitrary. They simply indicate the severity of what you did. At 0, it basically means "You didn't really do anything wrong, but still try not to do it again in the future". Think of it like a mod telling you inside the thread not to double post or whatever - we try to give warnings to not clutter up a thread and keep it between the receiver and the moderator.
An infraction is just like a warning except it carries a point value of 1 or more. The only different is that they sorta tell you did something wrong. A point value of one would be like jay-walking, where a point value of two would be similar to running a red light. Three would probably be similar to punching out a dude at a bar, four would be claiming an extra dependent on your taxes, and five would be like pulling a knife on a guy. I'd rather not go on to avoid being too graphic.
Infractions can have really no limit. As a joke I once gave a guy a 300 point infraction (care to raise your hand?), but that was the end of it. They don't limit what you can do on the forum, but may occasionally be used to determine if a user should be banned. Usually they aren't, though - they just tell a user they did something wrong and they shouldn't repeat their mistake.
A ban is what we give you when you have done something really bad or keep doing something bad. It means you can't post or participate in other community actives. Where an infraction is like a speeding warning, a ban is like jail time. Usually these expire after a week or a month, but it depends on the reason we gave it to you and other factors.
If you get an infraction, you really don't need to complain because it simply means "don't do it again". You don't lose any abilities on the forum and usually its just between you and the moderator who gave it to you. A ban on the other hand is something where, if you feel was ill-deserved, you should contact an admin via email. You can find those in our profiles. Of course, if you actually know you did something pretty obviously wrong, it might be better to just wait until the ban is over, which is the case most times.

Through various trademarks, new official romanisations have been revealed for more of the Generation V Pokemon. An example of a prior romanisation being revealed was for a Pokemon formerly known as "Chiraami", which was later revealed to be correctly romanised as "Chillarmy", a portmanteau of "Chinchilla" and "Army". For additionaly romanisations, follow the link below. (Note that the link leads to a list of EVERY GENERATION V POKEMON. As a result, it would be a MASSIVE SPOILER. You`ve been warned)

On November 20th in Japan, two new packages of Pokémon Black and White will be released. Included within each package is a copy of one of the games along with a Reshiram and Zekrom-themed DSi system. The DSi will either be black or white in colour, depending on the version you buy, and the title of the game you get will be engraved on its front. The package costs about $240, and it is still unknown whether it will be released outside Japan or not.

Two people who went to Gamestop for placing pre-orders of Pokémon Black & White were told that the games would be released on Friday April 22nd, 2011 in America, at a price of $40. It's interesting to note that the release date mentioned is the same as Pokémon Diamond and Pearl's, so it's most likely just a guess based around that. Also, the main Pokémon games are usually released on Sundays, which means that this is probably not the exact release date. However, it still gives us a good clue about the period within which the games will be released in America.

Pokémon Black & White broke yet another record. Having sold 2.6 million units in the first two days only, according to a report from Famitsu Magazine, they are now the best-selling Pokémon games in history. Taking the previous record of having 1 million pre-orders in Japan into consideration, this makes Pokémon Black & White both the fastest- and best-selling Pokémon games ever!
