Question: What is the Dunce Cap?

Answer: The dunce cap is a penalty which is placed upon people who break the rules and/or behave badly in the forums. It is a temporary penalty, which can vary in duration from a few minutes to a few days, depending on the offense.

When you are dunced in the forums, you are limited to how often you can post, and how often you can post a new topic. An image also appears on your posts with the dunce cap logo.
