MCCentral uses a warning point system on the forums. A warning point is similar to an in-game punishment and can be issued when a rule is broken. Breaking the forum rules can give you either 1 or 2 warning points which expire in 1 to 3 weeks. Some warning points never expire, and have to be appealed to get them removed. Having 3 or more warning points will result in you being banned from the forums. This means that you cannot create forum posts, threads or give likes to forum posts. You will be unbanned automatically once you drop below 3 warning points. Other punishment types include website bans and revoked access to submitting tickets.

The profile walls of players can also be moderated by the staff, meaning that staff members can delete messages or take further actions, such as issue website bans if needed. An example of this could be if a player has created toxic or very disrespectful messages on profile pages.
