Receiving Forfeit Points
If a citizen/organization violates the First eRepublik law, then they will be penalized with 1 FP. The table below explains exactly the type of penalty that your account will receive:
|No.||Penalty name||FP requirement||FP added/penalty||Can be appealed?|
|1||Your First Warning||0 FP||1 FP||No|
|2||Your Second Warning||1 FP||1 FP||No|
|3||Your Third Warning||2 FP||1 FP||No|
|4||Content block - 6h||3 FP||1 FP||No|
|5||Content block - 12h||4 FP||1 FP||No|
|6||Content block - 24h||5 FP||1 FP||No|
|7||Content block - 48h||6 FP||1 FP||Yes|
|8||Content block - 72h||7 FP||1 FP||Yes|
|9||Content block - 72h||8 FP||1 FP||Yes|
|10||Content block - 72h||9 FP or more||1 FP||Yes|
In case you receive a "content block" penalty, your citizen/organization will not be able to create (or edit your) user generated content for a limited period of time, but you will be able to use all other eRepublik features. Once a citizen has reached 4 (four) forfeit points, in extreme infringement situations, the eRepublik staff members reserve the right to apply additional penalties to each future infringement, in the following order:
- one day temporary suspension of the account;
- two days temporary suspension of the account;
- three days temporary suspension of the account;
- permanent suspension of the account.
In these types of situations, it does not matter if the forfeit points have expired or not.
Viewing your Forfeit Points
If you have received FP, you will also receive a message from admin which states what rule(s) you broke and if applicable, the quote of whatever you said which broke the rule(s).

Viewing your Total Forfeit Points
You can view the amount of forfeit points you have received by visiting your own profile. However, you may only view the amount of forfeit points you have, and not the amount of forfeit points somebody else has.
Appealing your penalties
If you have received forfeit points, but you believe you have been unfairly penalized, you will have one chance to appeal your penalty but only after the 6th FP.
- Click on the "Forfeit Points" on your profile (see above image).
- Here, you can see all the rules you have broken (see image below).
- As in can see, there is also an appeal link. You may click on it to start writing your appeal.
- Again, you only have one chance, so use it well!
Suspension of accounts
If your account is suspended temporarily or permanently, when you try to log in you will see listed your penalties. Again, you may submit your appeal by pushing the "appeal" button for the penalty you would like to appeal.
Losing Forfeit Points
If a citizen maintains good behavior for two months after they received the forfeit points, then that citizen will automatically have those forfeit points removed. However, this does not apply to permanently suspended citizens.
