We have a few cute little threads here for you guys to ask questions and offer suggestions to help the site run more smoothly. We've been getting a lot of questions as to why particular users were banned, so we're going to make a thread to help you guys out when you feel the most lost.

If your friend is banned and you don't know why, ask them about it. When you do, one of three things may happen.

1. They will know why and tell you and you two can despair, at which point they are welcome to send an email to support@imnotokay.net and ask for a review of their case. Do not expect everyone who does this to be forgiven.

2. They will not know why and they will tell you so. Urge them to send an email to support@imnotokay.net to ask what's up and, if they choose, to ask for a review of their case.

3. They will tell you they don't know why, and it will be a lie. They can still email support@imnotokay.net and ask for a review, but you should be aware that if they email us and still aren't telling you, they don't want you to know.

There are times when more than one user is banned at a time. We do ban people often, but you don't notice that because they aren't your friends or aren't very active users. That's fine. We're sorry you lost a buddy to chat with on the boards, but believe us, we want as much traffic here and as many people as possible so it is NOT our fault.

Yes, there are groups that are banned sometimes when things get out of hand. I know most of you veterans can think of a few wars we've had in the past. Bucking against our reasoning is not a good way to have us hear you, and flooding the Q&A threads is also a terrible way. In fact, if you were not banned, we probably won't listen much to you. Here's why.

Other's people's business here is private. If a user is banned, we can't always share that information with you. It's up to the banned user to decide if they'd like to pursue it.

We're reasonable people here.

So if you have any questions about your friends being barred from INO, ask them, and they can ask us. All communications about banning should be made solely between the admins and the banned users themselves.

Sorry if this was lengthy. Just trying to be as informative as possible. We love you guys. Wink

I can't get onto my account on Greenday's fansite. I tried logging in with the correct password and username, but I can't. I think I'm banned. How do I get unbanned? I think it's because I cursed.

Try e-mailing an admin...?
It's probably something like admin@geekstinkbreath.net

i wouldnt have thought you would be banned for cursing. they tolerate it in moderation, but if you mean you insulted someone offensively, that might be why.

I think this thread should be locked.
To avoid discussion about some banned users...

Yeah, well, I made a mean comment about blonde girls who shop at abercrombie, invovling curse words. I said 'b*itch' with the I.


I think I maaay have said 'f*ck' also with a "U"

After I made those comments, they disappeared from that discussion like I had never made them.

I think she did that because, as she said, she had no other way of finding out, and this was the closest to on topic that was possible.

As Stella said, it would probably be a good idea to lock this.

Maybe it's actually the opposite, because this topic is actually about not doing that.

You're right; I'll lock it.
