  • Level 2 (Caution) – Does not assume whether or not the editor is acting in good faith.
  • Level 3 (Warning) – Assumes bad faith; warns editor to stop what they are doing.
  • Level 4 (Final Warning) – Assumes bad faith; a strong, final warning to the editor to stop what they are doing.
  • Level 4im (Only Warning) – Assumes bad faith; a strong, first and only warning to the editor to stop what they are doing. This should only be used in extreme cases.
