Help with Ban? No reason given, unaware of what to do.

    I stand by the username Carlosedu1. I have contacted as many mods as I could over a permanent ban from IRC that had "(no reason)" on it's note. I contacted Jon on another browser, yet was not yet able to prove my innocence, so he assumed I was evading ban and banned me permanently once more. I just want answers.

    For now, all I can do is describe what happened. I wasn't smart enough to gather screenshots or logs, so I am unaware of what else to show.

    It began on November 10th. There was a heated discussion over politics on the IRC, and I was mainly watching as it escalated. Of all the things I said, were sentences like "Good thing I'm not in the US" and "Gosh, are you going to involve socialism in this?". I swear I was not being disrespectful to anybody, nor was giving any sort of opinion. User Constans were there and I believe he can vouch for me. He saw me there and He can tell I was not insulting anybody nor actively participating in the argument. Anyway, the last thing I've done was talk to user Luckylee and say "Hey, how are you doing? I'm just here watching as the argument escalates into a fight." Next thing, I get a message saying "User has been permanently banned from DLPnet (no reason)". Now I'm isolated from the chat, and trying to contact as many mods as I can so I can hopefully get back.

    I apologize if this doesn't sound convincing enough, but I deeply wish to return to the IRC. If there is any alternative for me to show I do not deserve to be banned, please let me know in the comments below. I am just a wannabe writer and I am just here to participate on HP and fiction related discussions. I never had the intention to bother anyone or be part of any political discussion on IRC.

    Can anybody help me, please? I appreciate in advance.

    It's probably that Luckylee guys fault who you were talking with before it happened.

    How exactly could it be his fault? I don't recall him doing anything specifically bad as well. I could be wrong, though. I don't know what happened to him.

    Well, okay... but how can I prove I wasn't doing anything to the mods?

    I'd message Luckylee on the forums.

    I just searched. There's no user named "Luckylee" on the forums... perhaps it was his IRC thing. Now what?

    I think you would be best off contacting Syed. He is the forums democratically elected Super Mod. He is your best bet for fighting these corrupt mods and or admins.

    I've messaged him. No response yet. I guess I'll just have to wait...

    Don't fear the Green/Orange names. Fight the power, comrade.

    Alternatively, you can contact Narf or his handler Dark Syaoran, they are usually very reasonable. Sorry to hear about your bad experience, but I'm sure if you explain it to Narf properly (and not insult cows or Nasus) he will understand.

    Contacting Syaoran in regards to a ban from Narf is a terrible idea. Speaking from experience here.

    I'm sorry you've had this experience. If you feel your experience in this community has been below standard, you can put in an official complaint to DLP's quality assurance manager Palindrome.

    Thanks for understanding, everyone. I have contacted Syed, Apologized to Jon, and too have contated Dark Syaoran earlier today. So far, nobody responded.

    So, it was Narf who banned me? It was him who was arguing over politics with Constans. They were being rather harsh to each other.

    They are just angry Hindu's tbh. Who even cares about the political debate they were having, I'd honestly just interrupt it with memes and other shit. You aren't in the wrong here, this is clear abuse of power.

    Have you ever considered that this experience may have been a test of sorts?

    I think you can ping mods on the forum by writing @ before their names. Try pinging as many as you can to handle this problem.

    Not really, no. Even so, how would that even work? I mean, the other ban with Jon earlier today seemed pretty real to me.

    ---------- Post automerged at 16:00 ---------- Previous post was at 15:58 ----------

    Thing is, I don't know many of them. other than the ones I've mentioned, I only know Palindrome who can consider my case.

    Other mods are welcome.

    So ping them and introduce yourself. You've had pretty good first impressions with Narf/Jon.

    Yeah Narf and Jon seem mean and intimidating at first. But really they're just kinda awkward and are great people once you show more of yourself to them.
