Lucky again. I got banned because some jerk accused me of being a toxic scratcher's alt account, who was banned on Scratch like 3 months before I was banned. I hated it. They even banned my innocent brothers and IP Addresses (They banned my parent's IP address and my cousin's IP address because I was constantly traveling to both places).
But I'll let that slide. That happened almost 2 years ago.
I CAN'T! They banned me before I had a chance to see what happened or do anything! The only thing I heard from Scratch Team was that "I was the Scratcher", and they didn't say it as if "Someone thought I was the Scratcher without proof"! BAHHHHHHHH!
It's not about luck. I haven't been banned from any website because I'm a good person. I follow the rules, and I'm just a nice guy. I don't post mean things (and if I do, I might come back to it and realize it's mean, so I delete it). I'm saying this so you can know how not to get banned on any website.
I’ve never been banned in the Snap forums. That’s because when i got banned on scratch for 3 days, I realized I should probably cut down on snarky remarks and jokes a little. Not trying to imply anything about you. I know it’s not your fault you got banned.
I hope that I decided to be smart and not send the appeal email I wrote. I wouldn’t want anyone reading that.
Well, at least I'm glad I can still view profiles (On Snap! and the Forums), posts (On the Forums), and other stuff like projects (On Snap!)! That's something to respect.
As with Scratch, well, Scratch would become pretty limited. You can't access the links like "Community Guidelines" with your IP banned (Or at least I can't), profiles, or studios! That kinda defeats the whole "Explore" purpose of Scratch.
OK, something I want to point out here: Scratch can also ban your school's IP address as well!
Here's how; a little funny story, so, basically my friends made accounts on Scratch and were ALSO accused of being a toxic scratcher's alt (Just like how I got banned), and they banned the School's IP address because my friends were using those accounts in School for the Computer Lab projects, because it was an elective at the time.
Then my School boycotted Scratch because their IP address was banned and so were all the hundreds of accounts that the school's students made (Because there were hundreds of people taking that elective). We eventually switched to other software like MIT App Inventor.
Sorry if that was against the rules (Taking to mods), but I did want to point out that Scratch bans entire school's IP addresses and can also ban for the same reasons. And those reasons, as with my case, were kind of illogical.
Yes, in Scratch and Snap alike, IP’s can be banned.
I know, not my question. No my account has never been banned or my IP but my schools IP address got banned. My school also contacted scratch administrators a long time ago, the scratch moderators take forever on appeals….
