Appealing Review bans? 2013-04-02 17:49:09 Reply

Hey guys.

I was banned from writing reviews years ago for posting a link to a youtube video within one... I was probably under 12 at the time.

Now I'm 17 and I still have this ban. I don't think I'll be doing anything as stupid as advertising in the reviews section anytime soon. It's quite annoying when I actually want to leave some feedback for submissions and can't... Anyone know how I could get this ban lifted?

Just make a new account. It's less trouble that way. You can regain all your voting experience in a month. And then some.

I'm not sure if it applies to the review rules,but using an alt to evade a ban in the forums is illegal (http://www.newgrounds.com/wiki/help-information/forums/foru m-rules : "Things that will get you banned : Posting with an alternate account whilst banned or your main account while an alt is banned. Both accounts may be deleted.)

I'm suggesting that he just abandon his old account and make a new main, not an ALT. :/

Fine, but I'm 17 now and there's no reason I shouldn't have an account now is there?

I really don't want to abandon this account either. Are you trying to tell me there's NO appeal system whatsoever?

If you're worried about your experience and stats / voting power, you don't have too much yet anyways. You can EASILY recover it all, in a short period of time.

I like the username... And I've had it since 2006.

PM WadeFulp and ask politely to have your ban withdrawn. Be sure to provide details appropriate to the case.

And be patient ;)

He's super busy so it may take a while for him to get back to you.

Assuming that you're now 17 years old,you were only 10 when you created this account.
you can try sending a pm to a review moderator to ask him to lift the ban,no guarantee though.

Yeah if you abandon this account you will have to explain to people all the time about how this is just a new account, and we all sigh inside.


original I am.
