I would like to know why the poster JAS_ got banned. I'm only opening this thread to get the information, and mods can reply to me in a PM if they think it's better.

Thanks!

"It is extremely unlikely that anyone requesting information on why another poster is banned will get an answer."

Have a nice day. :wavey:

Oh.. I don't think him getting banned was a fair matter. It seems some posters suspected he was someone else, that he isn't, and that got him banned. I have a hard time believing a mod would ban someone without checking all the info and the IP though... that's why I was asking. I think his ban should be clarified..

Ok, so can you check this matter or comunicate with JAS_ ? Because it seems he was banned because the poster Brena claimed he was the poster Constanza. And he is not. Could someone just check the IP or something? I'm sure this could be worked out.

JAS asks how can he get in touch with you if he is banned? By e-mail?

Yes, that would be the way I guess. You can find my email in my profile. Make sure to mark it clearly as a Tennisforum mail, in case it ends up in my spam folder.

Alternatively you or someone else can send the information via PM.

Ok. Thanks James! JAS will send you a mail now. I can also send a PM, in case the mail doesn't arrive.

You can do both perhaps to make sure.

Edit: I have the mail.

They should change the rules. It makes sense to not say what posters are banned, but there should be a place that says why each ban occurs, so others can know what they did wrong and learn from that.

It's simple: posters are banned for breaking the rules.
The rules are written clearly in the FAQ section, and in the stickied thread at GM.

Plus, only new posters risk being banned outright. We don't permaban any "established posters" out of nowhere.

Why don't you just read the rules in the FAQ section! :eek: Problem solved.

Just to make it clear so people don't make wrong assumptions about me: I was banned because I was thought to be someone else. I didn't break any site rules.

However I do think that the procedure can be improved, because for instance in my situation once I was banned, I coulnd't access anything whatsoever. I couldn't even see the content of the conversation I was leading during which I was banned, until I had access to a different computer, so I only had the screen in front of me saying:

You have been banned for the following reason: previously banned user.
Date the ban will be lifted: never.

And most other things, like for instance the mail of the admin (James) I later emailed, actually require to be registered to access them so since I was banned I couldn't register and I couldn't access it. Circle closed. I think it is not a very thoroughly thought out procedure.
Had I not known some posters from another net blog, who helped me get the info, I probably wouldn't have bothered to rectify this issue.

But again, thank you to everyone who help clear this, posters and James.

You can always send an email to the webmaster, also when you are banned.
He will always direct these kind of questions towards the admins.

As to why you are banned, let me just say that we don't ban only because a poster claims someone to be a previously banned user.


Case solved, I suppose ;)
