So a few months back I was told i was permanently banned by my ip address for being a jerk about the gibson robot sg contest. Also banned for having like seven usernames. Why was the ban lifted? Not that im complaining or anything, i like UG and being able to use it, curiousity is a harsh mistress. BTW i was complaining the 'contest' isnt really a contedt because they make you pay. But yeah, i dont care anymore. Any ideas on why a perma ban was lifted? Just curious. Please dont ban me for this.

PM a mod.
You'll get a quicker reply by asking them directly, instead of waiting for them to eventually find this thread and replying.

pear avatar against the rules? Why if i may ask?


I know that posting the pear is forbidden and I think it's an insta-ban. I got banned for it before, or maybe it was Rick Rolling. Learned my lesson....

i think it was 5$ a month. Its a cell phone contest... Text the right answer to 5555* and you may win, kinda thing. *cough* con artist *cough*

the funny part was i spent hours complaining about it and the contest was not open in the place i live either. (canada)

*sigh* yet again, only on UG would somebody rush to their computer to tell the pit when their lives or property are in dire trouble.

Nah, it's only against the rules if it's being used as spam. It may be spamming my avatar, but not the forums, so it's okay.

The mods seem to be ok with it as long as it's not just spam, or a N.o.t.P III.

If I were you though, I would have never made a thread, as to not draw attention to himself . Because what if it was just a slip in the system? Maybe they meant to unban someone else.
