This is Lorentzos Roussos ,and yes i opened a second account .
Read before you consider removing this please ,and message me if you do remove this.
I'm aware that it has nothing to do with you forum moderators but since the service desk prompts for this (non financial issues being directed to the forum)
and since the chances of the contact form request (which i just sent) being ignored ,given it is summer and theres a high probability of understaffed desks i will request that
you can at least leave this thread alive so the admins may see it whenever they do.
So ,i received a ban for spam for a month ,and here is more info about it :
(there is also a short informative video available but i will not post that yet ,if you are a mod i can send it to you for examination prior to posting in case you have worriesabout this being an advertisement ,which is not)
And you don't get any warnings .tough luck ,out of everything for the duration of the ban.
So the only ways to appeal after a ban are :
a. create a second account (i did)
b. log out and use the contact form by choosing a category that is not for this purpose and may
be ignored due to that unfortunately (also did and sent them the video)
So please :
Even if you don't consider my appeal.
Provide methods for appealing
Make your rules Crystal Clear and accessible.
And if they are crystal clear and accessible (meaning it was there and i did not see it)
then issue warnings before banning.
A ban on the news feed cannot bridge into a ban on commerce. (and one you cannot appeal at that)
I may be repeating myself ,but, i posted 5 comments on my posts and will be sidelined from everything for a month.
Happy users = money
(mods ,let me know if i can attach the video)
I Apologize for the bad vibes :)
Hello @Lorentzos Roussos. Forgive me, if I am misunderstanding your post, but are you saying you got banned because you wrote on you own wall (not forum), on your own profile?
I have seen many, many people (including moderators) put up adverts for their products on their own profile wall, and I believe that is totally accepted and there are no rules against that.
How could you have been banned for that?
Seems (from what I understand avout your explanation) - you got autoban.It means that anti-spamming automated robot is looking for the similar posts (similarities) which one uses posts in very short period of time.It is related editing your profile too (when you are making in the short period of time).
Forgive me, if I am misunderstanding your post, but are you saying you got banned because you wrote on you own wall (not forum), on your own profile?
Thank you for asking .
I did not explain it well perhaps .
Posts went by fine (their schedjuling for the future)
It was the commenting on those posts (my comments ,my posts,1 comment per post,5 comments on 5 posts) that triggered the autoban
This was an automatic ban and wasn't done by any moderator, I suggest you contact the Service Desk for dealing with it (yes, with your second account).
One can be banned (I was banned once for too many profile posts) for too many or too frequent post in their profile page, but this is all done automatically by the system (similar to auto IP ban).
Yes this seems to be the case .I used the contact form to send them a video of my explanation.(not from my original profile as it is impossible)Thank you
You cant communicate anything to anyone after a ban unfortunately .I had to log out ,switch ip ,and fill out the contact form for an irrelevant matter .I video recorded everything and sent it to them ,perhaps they will consider some changes.
I have seen many, many people (including moderators) put up adverts for their products on their own wall, and I believe that is totally accepted and there are no rules against that.
Because the robot detected duplicated comments and considered it as spam. It's usual way, they block all, and when a wrong case is triggered they improve their system.
The "wall" and chats is so poor in features, someone tried to find a way to get around it and got banned.
A moderator can easily lift that unappropriated ban.
i agree ,but its worse than that .Its not just a ban ,you cant participate in commerce at all (cant post signals ,cant post products ,cant place freelance bids) for these 5 comments . (and any ban on the news feed section for that matter i suppose)
Thank you for taking the time to read it
