Why were the pictures removed from the YEC Seeds thread?

For 4 years now, humourous pictures have been posted in Seeds threads, and everyone bar a certain fanbase has taken these unflattering pictures in good grace.


Cincinnati SEEDS (Kim WITHDRAWS; Shuai becomes #16 seed)
2012 SEWTA Indian Wells SEEDS (Petkovic WITHDRAWS, McHale now SEED)
WWW: The 2011 WTA Year-Ending Championships?
And of course the multitude of SAISAI-GOAT Seeds threads.

Yet over the past week, Miffedmax has been either closing any thread I've made about this or most recently removing the pictures. This is even after an administrator, James, appeared to say it was fine to use the pictures, that the only issue was that I'd posted it too early; when I then re-posted the thread after the seeds were finalised, Miffedmax then removed the pics and banned me, for no reason given whatsoever.

The admin advised me to take this up by PM with Miffedmax, but I've done this twice over the past week and have had no reply; it seems the only way to actually get answers round here is to raise the issue in public. I would like to know why Seeds threads with humourous pictures are apparently banned, why the admin and Miffedmax are apparently not in agreement on whether they should be banned or not, and why I was banned for doing something that an admin had given me a green-light to do.

Re: Why were the pictures removed from the YEC Seeds thread?

Your best bet remains to resolve the issue with Miffedmax over PM. If you ask nicely, I am sure you will get a reply. In case it really does not work, you can PM an admin.

By the way, mods can't ban people (with the exception of spam bans, but that was not the case here).
