Here are some examples for which I have trouble deciphering the differences:

"Entry added to log on Friday, Jan 18 2013, 16:46 Reminder Dude, you just posted quadruple times in succession. Don't do that. Use the EDIT button if you wish to add anything to your previous post."

"Entry added to log on Thursday, Jan 31 2013, 10:34 Reminder You've replied to a couple topics that are from 2005, those topics that are 7 years old! Check how old a topic is before you reply to it."

"Entry added to log on Saturday, Mar 30 2013, 22:17 Verbal Warning Please do not reply to spam, report it and move on."

A verbal warning is more severe than a reminder and given out for more severe things. Quadruple posting and bumping topics from 2005 is just annoying, thus why you were likely given the reminder rather than a warning. Replying to a spam topic with spam is just stupid (just report it and move on), thus why you were likely given the warning. That is not to say that you should do the things you received the reminders for as they're less severe. Bottom line, anything that earns you a reminder, warning, or a temp ban should not be done again.

    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

It's not a question of severity, since there is no consistent correlation between offences and punishments (for lack of better words). Reminders are often given out for first or second offences if the moderator feels that a permanent red stamp on a member's log is excessive or unnecessary. Repeating the same offence may land you with greater punishments however...

I think it also depends on what the moderator wants to give you, if he just wants to give you a reminder or a full fledged verbal warning. Problem is 3 reminders is probably too nice, so you got the warning.

Why is it wrong to post in threads that are seven years old? confused.gif

It's wrong to post pointless sh*t in older topics that needn't be revived. Seriously, if you even have to ask such things, I'd say you lack common sense.

Also, it's completely wrong to ask something in someone else's topic that has got nothing to do with your question. Now stop beating a dead horse. You did something stupid, you were warned for it and now you know what you're not supposed to do. End of story. Be constructive for once rather than bitching about the same stuff over and over again.
