Thread: no reason given

  1. #1

    no reason given

    Recently I got this when logging on. I have checked my history and there is NOTHING but predictions and the odd comment that most certainly was not even remotely controversial. What sort of forum bans people for no reason and won't even give a reason? It must be a mistake but I am past caring.
    Hoping Leeds do well, but had enough of this forum. I have tried to contact the editor for a reason, but never had a reply. So I have altered my name from 'oranjewhite' to 'oranje white' just to say Good luck to LUFC but I won't be coming back to this poorly run blog that refuses to acknowledge a mistake has been made.
    This is what I got when logging in;

    You have been banned for the following reason:
    No reason was specified.

    Date the ban will be lifted: Never

    Forgot to mention, as oranjewhite, I have never been on another teams site causing trouble. Have been a regular predictor (came 3rd = a few years ago) and occasional commenter on the Leeds site only, and have been a member for many many years, so this ban is ridiculous and unwarranted. All I can think of the word "oranjewhite" may have been picked up as a white supremacist thingy because of the word "white" ???? But that doesn't really make sense as likely other members with same word in their ID. But other than that ....not a clue. And to be banned forever for "no reason given" is just lazy and amateurish by the powers in charge. Hope nobody else gets anything similar. I'll be watching the next three (I hope) games for sure.

    Are you Dutch perchance? I got banned on the DCFC Mad board. I also got "no reason given". I know the Mod on there so I asked why. He investigated for me and it seems that I had used the word "v i t a l", spaces in there to avoid a repeat ban, that being the name of a rival forum. I managed to get the ban overturned.

    If you are Dutch "ik hoop dat wij twee zeer goede wedstrijden zien en dat de beste ploeg over die twee wedstrijden zegeviert"

    Not wanting to wind you up any more than you already are, but why not continue to use the forum with your new name? Not doing so because the "system" has f00ked up seems a bit "cutting nose off to spite face"-ish?

    I'm sure others would agree that we'd rather have you here with a space in your name than not at all, ok?

    First I've heard of your being banned - I can think of plenty of others that would be nearer the top of any such list!

    Did someone have a bad time in Blackpool?

    Not sure I can find much out (Wortley's more of our Miss Marple), but will have a look later.

    Just seen this (been away for a couple of days with family scattering my sister in laws ashes)

    As I have literally just got back can't do anything tonight but I will see what I can find out next week.

    Our forum seems pretty loose on the bans compared some of the others I've heard about. Only been banned once, back in the League one days, and I was a little over the top. Had some help getting reinstated. we've had some real wind up merchants over the years and they were one a long time.

    My guess is that it was a some clown filed a complaint or just scrolling through and saw the name and complained? May have been random.

    My ban was not from one of our moderators but some centralized outfit moderator. I bet that happened here. WG will get you fixed up if that's the case. Don't take it out on her or the board because some faceless bureacrat with no Leeds affiliation hammered you.

    Not sure if Wortley managed to sort this out, but I don't see any obvious problems in the little bit of the backroom I'm allowed to visit.

    Try again and let me know?

    I have put a query on the Moderator Board and also sent an e-mail to one of the Admins.

    Hopefully I will hear something soon. As soon as I do I will post what is said.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    I have had a reply from the Admin person I contacted for help.

    He could not understand why you were banned either. The only thing he can think of is that your IP address matched a banned member although that in itself would not usually be enough.

    I have been asked to tell you this was an error and to also pass on apologies that it happened in the first place.

    Look forward to seeing you back as yourself
