My other account just got banned. Any reason for this? Any reason at all? It said that i got banned for "pushing the limits. don't do it." does that mean don't ever use emoticons? I'm very unhappy about this. I see no reason I got banned. Please, someone give me an answer because I'm p1ss3d off right now.

Thanks,
Steyler

Is this you?
:fp Sorry, but :fp DO NOT BAN ME I ONLY DID TWO LOL
Sorry, but I don't see the point of banning people for using emoticons. But w/e. I guess there will be about 2 less spam posts....
Well, one thing is that you were pushing it. There is no hard limit. You mocked him by posting them unnecessarily. So you were banned. The second thing is that, If you are banned DON'T MAKE ANOTHER ACCOUNT! Thats just ignoring the ban, and you will most likely get a longer IP ban. To some it all up: Don't be an idiot!


You used it twice when it was uncalled for. Nobody did anything stupid that deserved it but you.
Oh. I used an emoticon twice. TERRIBLY sorry. I won't do it again :rolleyes:

Thanks for the info!,

I got the one day ban, and a warning. I didn't make another account. I've had this one for a while now.
I was also partly screwing around with the facepalm stuff. Sorry everyone (no, really, sorry everyone) for facepalming.

How does this ban work then? Surely, I could just make another account?
Well, they could ban you from the site entirely (from your computer), but i think that that would be overdoing it a little. But they CAN if they want to.

Compare those two posts. You're obviously just trying to seem smart.
Idiot. Also, as I stated in your Avatars thread, get off of here until your ban gets lifted.

Steyler.
Take your ban like a man. If you can't stand the heat stay out of the kitchen (if you can't follow the rules get off the forums, until you are ready). The moderators do a fine job and they banned you with hopes that you would return better not to be jerks.

I'd say ban evasion deserves an IP ban though, and should be a bigger problem than just spam posts. However, posts with only a facepalm emote should be marked as spam. There's usually a 10 char rule, and posts that are about 3 chars are useless.

I find it really sad that this is even needed. If somebody came off another forum and saw the title of this thread, they would LOL so hard.

Maybe a waste of resources? There must be worse crimes than facepalming.

I just saw this thread, and I have to say, as the person who first introduced the facepalm to this forum, I am very sorry. I do have to say though, I am absolutely delighted that jcuber was banned because of it, especially since he was the first, second, and probably third or fourth target, and he didn't even understand it.
