Ban Report - Do your part to help the site.

84 votes

Here is a place to report any serious wrongdoings- such as rule breaking- so that that person can be reviewed by the mods for a ban or warning. Please report people by explaining what they did; reporting a person with no evidence isn't going to get you anywhere. Only report people for doing the more serious things, such as using duplicate accounts, swearing, constant inappropriate image adding, that kind of thing. If someone is committing an offense that isn't as serious, such as mild spamming, just comment. If you are not reporting someone, don't comment on this page at all.

Remember, no joke reports and try to keep your posts civil.

Try to include chat logs (if needed) of the offenses when possible, although try to put them in a link rather then an image as images make the page run slow, eventually forcing us to delete past reports to stop the lag. We try to not delete the hidden posts of the ban report so that we have a database of offenses that we can refer to if somebody comes up on the ban report again, so having pictures and long chat logs can cause some eventual problems.

Be sure to add profile links. It does us moderators no good if profile links are not added as we do not enjoy digging through 20 point user pages to find one.

I'm not reporting a spambot this time. Hooray! Although this guy is probably a bigger issue. I'm reporting zoroark86 for being rude and offensive to various members of the site on multiple occasions.

Several months ago I was scrolling through the X and Y in game team post when I noticed a bunch of all-caps comments on fondant's post. I hid them and warned Zoroark not to do it again on his wall. He came back though; I happened to be on the same page again when I found some similar comments:

commented Feb 8 by zoroark86

I warned him once again. I hadn't encountered any more problems with him until today. I made a comment on a post here explaining why I thought Toxic Orb might be more useful than Flame Orb when I found this several hours later:

FIZZ IS A FAT HEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ha. Guess he holds come sort of grudge against me for warning him. But anyway, back to the point: this guy needs to be banned. He's just plain annoying and isn't doing anything to help the site.

So has this guy been banned? If not then which Mod would like the honour of banning him?
Got him.

Amiable Angemon be crazy!
He went on a rant/randomness-stroke today, he then lashed out with cuss words and all caps on a new user that happened to have a similer name to another user.
He has been warned before.
(if you need an explanation about that new user [which isnt a dupe], let me know in the comments and ill edit it in)

Okay as for that, it was more of a joke, not meant to be in any way an offense, to be honest it started out as a caps mistake, but I followed along with it making it... more than an accident :X
You can just stop doing this kind of stuff, ya know.
I dont do it on purpose, if that makes sense
I don't know if autism or anything, but I can tell you from experience that any sort of mental reasoning, while normally give you slack, does not deter the mods from banning. It doesn't give you  clear pass to do what you want.

I know this cos I got banned cos I was acting up, since my form of autism, among other things, blurrs the lines of what is acceptable in one place and not others. I took the ban though :P
naw, I'm pretty sure I dont have autism... but I'm not trying to get out of punishment by being mental. lel

Amiable Angemon was using all caps in chat and saying that Antwon Fed-Ex was doing something in a "dick way" about a circle/triangle game:

yep, this will be my first time being banned. i'll admit, that definitely is deserving of a ban.
At least you're not being pissy about it. I can respect that.
Woah the censor does not catch that word...?
the D word? Not sure why but it's not on the censor list.
Because chickens. (literal chickens)
1st warning. Further infractions will result in a ban.

We believe that -[Protean~Froakie]- has a dupe

Screenshot 1 ~ Qwerty Zoom

"hey I am Sid13 speaking to Qwerty Zoom. Thanks for the bagon." He says that he is Sid13 in chat, and Sid13 isn't his old username. It is another account.


Can a mod check their IP?

I'm thinking that this should actually be a comment or an edit on the other post xD, but I'm not completely sure, so I'll just clean it up and let someone else take the blame.
Protean Froakie has on his profile that Sid13 is his brother, however he has not posted on the siblings page.
I noticed this as well
I was to trade a pokemon to froakie, sid ended up answering which one lol
Same IP, but post on the siblings page. You have 3 days.
I've wrote on his wall telling him to post it or he'll get permanently banned.

Yay more spam ads! This time chadosborn78 spammed a ton of questions with ads. I remember reporting another guy with a similar username for this kind of thing, so if anybody happens to find an account with "chadosborn" in its name then report it since it's probably a spambot.

Another spambot. Unrelated to the one already mentioned I think.

Another bot like the previous one, chadosborn80. This one made me chuckle though:

This shoe is very bright, right?

I thought the name was familiar.
Isn't it possible to just IP ban these people?
Yes, but they can easily pass that by making another account and using it on a different network that hasn't been blocked. That's why that flood of 80+ bots happened, they constantly made new accounts and connected to the site on IPs that weren't blocked.
Oh, that makes sense.
