Only the users themselves can tell you why they blocked you. Then again, since they blocked you, you have no means of asking them. But from your previous post it's not hard to guess the reasons. Protip: Don't harass mods because of a ban.

Maybe because of the signature I have written, because it is just a dare, so on, I will change the signature TO STOP harrasing the NG users.

OK buddy, I'll give you this one shot, but I will NOT accept any responsibility for the outcome, whatever that may be. I'm just the messenger.

@Waterflame @Step @ForeverBound - Would any of you care to enlighten this poor soul?

Work done. NewgroundsMike out.

You've been sending me invitations to join your audio projects non-stop. I think I got something like ten to fifteen invitations from you. The only reason I blocked you is so that I'd stop receiving them, because they were all projects I wasn't a part of. I'd be willing to bet that's also why Waterflame and ForeverBound blocked you.

If you want feedback on a submission of yours now and again, then kindly ask one of us in a PM, and don't send more if we don't reply or can't give you feedback. You can also use this thread to exchange reviews with other members of the community, which is really one of the best ways to get reviews. And as a rule of thumb, don't invite people who weren't involved at all in your projects.

Regarding the scouting, I scouted you - you should have received a private message in your inbox asking you if you'd like to accept.

Hope that makes sense.

Thanks step for clearing this out. Only reason why I blocked you is cause there where so many invites and I'm not even part of the project or you didn't use any of my music etc. So there is no need for me to join them then.

Response to FAQ Discussion Thread 2015-04-28 06:17:03


I just spent quite some time trying to find what the file size limit is for submitting without any results, so here's a suggestion.
You might want to add to the FAQ what the current file size limit is for submissions, ex:
- What is the file size limit for submitting?
- current limit is ...M for swf, ...M for audio, ...M for art, etc.

I heard if you make a lot of alt accounts it will get you banned.
So, how many alt accounts can you make?

It would be nice (unless I'm missing something) to have a link to the list of moderators from this page so people will know who to PM.

We had one but it kept getting out of date. I think @liljim was going to generate an automated list at some point but I don't know where we are with that.

I decided against a public facing list for two reasons:

1. People would contact moderators who may or may not be able to respond in a timely fashion. We can't expect them to be around 24/7.
2. They would contact EVERY moderator on a given list with the same issue (often due to #1), which is a big waste of everyone's time.

I've been consolidating some of the mod tools and there's going to be live lists in each of those sections, so everyone on those teams should know who each other are.

A few is ok as long as it is not causing issues, if you start to creative massive amounts of accounts, you can expect them to get deleted.

I believe it depends on the offense.

No, there isn't a number where your account is automatically locked or deleted. You won't be surprised by your account poofing away just because you hit 10 forum bans. In the rare cases where an account is locked or deleted there is very little surprise to anyone that it is going to happen.

Not really, you can be banned from the forums, reviews, and audio plenty of times and still be a member on the site. You have to be a constant toxic user and a drain of moderators and admins times constantly before they might even consider the user needing to be deleted (ie. always harassing users, stalking, being hateful, flamebaiting, shitposting / reviewing, etc etc)

Also make sure you don't forget the space between : and the text, or else you'll look like an idiot.

The single space.

More than one space is too much and less than one space is too little.

I'm having a little trouble with my playlists. First of all, I can't figure out how to add songs to a playlist. To make matters worse, I don't know how to create new playlists! I REALLY want some answers!

Above each song there's an 'add to playlist' button. Go to the song you want to put in a playlist and click said button. You can also make a new playlist there.
