    looked in the faqs couldn't find anything on it what does it mean when someone is in "Time out".

    It’s a temporary ban. If you get a time out then most likely it’s for a minor infringement of forum rules – you’ve been a bit naughty but not quite naughty enough to be fully smited by the ban hamster. Kind of like a final warning too, carry on with that type of behaviour and a full ban will surely follow.

    Thanks have been wondering it for a while. Good to know. Maybe this could be added to the faqs?

    If memory serves it’s only a recent development – previously it just said ‘banned’ whether it was temporary or permanent – so maybe our mods haven’t quite got around to amending the FAQs. They’re probably to busy inflicting time outs on people. ;)
