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.
When I got temp-banned, it logged me out, and when I tried to log back in, a screen appeared that said "Account suspended until [date]: [reason]"
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.
I've never been banned either, either not here long enough to do so or I'm too careful with how I speak and act.
Been there done that.
Yes it is possible. I had to email bh.
and the screen says
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.
I haven’t and have no idea what it looks like:(
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….
No offense, but you should probably be happy about that. It means you don't have a dirty record and a bad history on the forums! I wish I did.
I was just talking to my friend this morning how if somebody gets ip banned in the school everybody gets banned
Apparently I have a reputation of being annoying - bh
The was for me not knowing what it looks like.
Yep, IP bans the schools IP causing all devices on that network not using a VPN or such to be terminated when using that address.
wait so @bh when you ip banned me i could just go on the snap forums at school? (possibly getting the whole school banned)
i've never been banned, i wonder what its like (mods pls don't ban)
Yes you could.
imagine your school had a snap project due, so you just decided to do something super stupid on your behalf while at school, causing the whole school to be ip banned
this gives me some "Ferb, I have an idea." vibes
The teachers would probably NOT like it. They won't suspect you, but the mods will probably have to expect a bunch of angry emails complaining about it.
This is far from being true. Most of our users are cooperative and helpful, and we ban only as a last resort after several ignored warnings.
I'm deleting this topic (except for this post) because it's very antisocial in tone -- starting with the assumption that everyone behaves in ways that would get them banned -- and also because it's devolved into a discussion criticizing Scratch, which is specifically disallowed in our ToS.
