These rules apply to all of the social spaces we use, including (but not necessarily limited to) Trello, GitHub, Transifex, and the Wikia (aka wiki). Sometimes, unforeseen situations will arise, like a new source of conflict or a vicious necromancer.

commGuideList09D Removal or demotion of Contributor Tiers

When a Mod has to say "Please don't do this" to a user, it can count as a very minor infraction for that user. An example might be "Please don't keep arguing in favor of this feature idea after we've told you several times that it isn't feasible." In many cases, the Please Don't will be the minor consequence as well, but if Mods have to say "Please Don't" to the same user enough times, the triggering Minor Infractions will start to count as Moderate Infractions.
