I rarely ever comment and now its seems like i cant comment on any threads, just wondering to why this is?
Why am I banned?(23 posts)
I had exactly the same thing, Pat never got back to me...
I think, the thing is; once your intelligence reaches a critical point, your ability to post disappears...
You must be far too clever at the moment and the VG247 brain scan has recognised that... I recommend shoving a large triangle of Brie French cheese in your ear... That should address the balance! :)
Good luck, it wears off after time!
sorry english is bad no
Don't listen to Monkey Gourmet, he's being silly :/ What you need to do is start a forum thread questioning Pat's parentage (to get his attention ), then homophobically attack anyone who defends Pat's good name.
Pat will see you as a equal & let you post again, they may even be cake!
"I hope they close down Gearbox, bunch of fucking nobs"
"Yeah because wanting a mindless boring shooter over a scary tactical game is the best idea..."
"BF3 because it was the opposite to bf2 from the hideous maps to the worst community"
"shit as fuck mate"
I don't know, man.
That doesn't look banworthy. It's usually because you posted racial slurs, sexist/homophobic comments or said that Dishonored was shit.
Yeah, if swearing and opinionated ranting were grounds for banning, the community would be pretty thin.
I'd even say a certain amount of sexism and racial slurs are ignored, but repeated homophobic comments will get you banned.
I, for one, am happy that ban hammer is swinged, warning people. Now I understand why some trolls (who I wont name) have stopped visiting as of late. Kudos to Pat for silently taking out the weed. It was becoming a problem.
Pro Tip from someone who never got banned (me!)- If you hate something, give reasons for it, don't go swearing around. Pat doesn't ban people for nothing, and is very fair. Go over your posts and think if you can improve something and use better language.
Apologies if it looks like a lecture, but hey, I never got banned by following these :)
I think the person being banned should be notified and told why.
I could still log in, but couldn't comment.
It's like, you don't mind counting me as a registered user but you don't want my input? Well, thats just bullshit.
Either remove people completly or tell them why they were banned so they can maybe change their conduct, otherwise it's just like bad parenting.
I still have no idea why I was banned, although I have a good idea who may have reported me.
If you were banned, chances are you were being a cunt. In which case you should know...
Its troubling that people don't realise what they've said online offends people. It really does reinforce the fact that being a faceless individual online does not justify a lack of etiquette and candour but some people seem to lack even the basic understanding of human interaction even when the subject matter is their hobby.
I have no idea what anyone on this post did to deserve their ban, but the fact that you were, tends to indicate what you said offended a few people and a social adjustment is necessary.
That, or as TG said, you suggested Dishonoured was shit (It isn't) or questioned the article authors lineage.
Edit: Yeah, or what TG said just now as his version was shorter ;)
You're all guilty of treason! That's why!
The only thing i can think of was the Brenna article on DMC.
And IMO that would be harsh because the article was mildly pre-loaded for 'colourful' discussion.
I still think people should be told, like i said, remove peoples log ins, you shouldn't count as site subscription figures if you can't post. You can't have it both ways.
@Samoan Spider and TG,
+1. Some people forget they are talking to same chaps as them on the internet.
Same reasons your other accounts were banned no doubt.
When you re-emerged you were relatively civil, but you have been gradually ramping up on the trolling and somebody must have had enough and pulled the plug (again).
Probably because you reminded him too much of lolshock94...95 or something like that.
You know why.
@Geki: Fair fucks man, I completely forgot about that...
@monkeygourmet, You must be the long lost son of Vonnegut, spewing effective yet radical remedies for the most pressing valleys of life.
You just reminded me I need to read 'Slaughter House Five' :)
@Gekidami I have learned my lessons from that, that's why i barely comment on this site anymore, i just want to know why im banned for no apparent reason
If you think you were banned for "no apparent reason", you clearly havent 'learned your lessons'. That doesnt even make sense.
Anyone who gets themselves banned from VG247 should be ashamed of themselves. This site has the most fair ass moderators on the entire Earth.
As long as you aren't a hate mongering racial slime, you can pretty much say your peace without fear.
Hell, I got banned from JoBlo.com after 9 years of commenting for pointing out that the site was creating hyperbolic articles for page hits. Must have hit a nerve cause JoBlo himself sent me an email where he yelled at me for insulting the integrity of his site.
I simply pointed out that after 9 years as a reader, JoBlo and integrity should never be mentioned in the same sentence. Of course this was all after the ban. Hell, I didn't even know I was banned until I got that email and it was only in response to one I sent him inquiring why I couldn't log in.
You must log in to post.
