So whenever we ban a user for a length of time of one day or more, us mods post here. This way Pokemaster can go through and unban those who he feels deserve a second chance, or in the case of wrongful banning, such as banning a user because you think (without any solid proof) that it might be a duplicate. This also helps us remember to unban you from temporary bans.

Don't comment on this page unless you have real reasons, it slows down loading.

Please do not make a duplicate and request to be unbanned, because the answer is already no. If you think a user was unjustly banned, just remember Moderators generally do not overturn the decisions of other Moderators.

Ok time to hide stuff. Can you? It takes the page 7-8 seconds to load!
Hiding won't do anything. Pokemaster has to delete the hidden posts, and we try to keep them for temporary bans to remember offenses people have made.
Page runs fine for me.
Probably just my 9-12 MBPS internet.
Are we going to make a collective post for all of kirtdraney's accounts? :P

On a warning for a long history of low quality and rule breaking posts. This user's wall should explain a bit of the stuff he posts, and so should his question and answer history.

I have very good reason to believe this user is a duplicate of a user who was blocked a couple years ago. I will be keeping an eye on this. For reference, this is the blocked user: http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/user/biggrin
My account was created like a year after that person was banned it seems (if you look on his wall)
That does not prove that you are not the same person. Your IP addresses share the same host name, your usernames are very similar and several entries in your account details are the same.
I am prepared to let you use this account on the site, but please keep in mind that your past history of making "rage" posts and spam voting will not be forgotten.
There are lots of accounts named "Pikamaster" and I am quite suspicious of it.
@Distorted_palkia I only know one Pikamaster, do you know him?
Ye but there is lots.
Pikamaster is a common, easy name to think of. The fact that there might be more than one is only to be expected.
a common name for common people
you're anything but common

Everyone seems to be up in arms about my recent banning decisions, so I’m going to make this more public than I usually do.

Nuivo is banned for two three months (9 Sep 9 Oct) for:

  • creating a second account and using it to spam vote every single post on the main account.
  • posting content that openly plagiarises other sources, as well as posting (funny...?) spam comments in the Q&A — all hidden obviously.
  • repeatedly and spitefully flagging and voting down other people when they point out mistakes in their posts, and continuing to do so despite multiple warnings.
  • attempting to ban evade with a third account, which added the second month to the ban.
  • attempting to ban evade with a fourth account, which added the third month to the ban.

ETN was banned a couple of weeks ago (unban 15 Jul) for:

  • being undiplomatic and argumentative in general.
  • derailing people’s threads to discuss petty matters such as people’s grammar and tags.
  • continuing the above even though it was made very clear by multiple people the behaviour was unappreciated.
  • (openly) taking pleasure in annoying other people e.g. by sniping people’s alts, using dumb tags, etc.
  • refusing to drop the Gligurr subject (as a matter of principle; this has nothing to do with Gligurr anymore).
  • continuing all of the above despite countless warnings from multiple staff members.
  • attempting to ban evade, which got him his second week.

Over time, I gave at least three warnings to Nuivo and at least five to ETN before they respectively received their bans. They had plenty of advance warning, and plenty of opportunity to clean up their act. They didn’t, so they got a punishment. That is only fair.

Thanks Sempi, PX, Mew and Will for helping me keep up with all of this.

EDIT 15/07: ETN’s two weeks are over, and has now been unbanned.

EDIT 18/07: Nuivo made a fourth account. The main account is banned an extra month (9 Oct).

How did you highlight that in green, Fizz?

+Fizz, I think you didn't read that correctly. I said I was just laughing about that. No one understands me :(
It was directed more at LeafyBlade. The point was that ‘proof’ wouldn’t matter in this case.
I’m just glad everybody seemed to ignore Jar Jar’s post.
