Back... not necesarilly by popular demand.

Few questions that I would like to get answered if pos please.

1) I got banned for a day for selling on here and on ebay... which is fair enough, however the items sold on ebay were duplicates of those sold on here. anyway back to the question... what does the 2 points against my profile mean (2 points infraction or something).
2) Why was I not warned, or even spoken to before the ban... why was it just implemented. As I could have reammended any wrong doings.
3) Can I sell the remaining two pens on here (Completely different from the ones on ebay) without having my account banned any further.

Many thanks, Don.

PM a mod, i'm sure they will have answers without washing all your dirty laundry in public. :)
#2
Does any one have the link to see which mods are online?
I don't mind... my dirty laundry is relatively clean... and I thought maybe some of people have had a similar situation and may know. But cheers.

don im only assuming here but i believe there has been a lmost complete crackdown on the FS?FT boards since we had the new mod ( and im sure you'll agree the crackdown was needed) Im also assuming if something is listed here then it shouldnt be listed elsewhere and im sure there are some that have 6 of the same item but a line has to be drawn, otherwise all those caught could say but i have 2,3,4 of them, when infact they dont. Im not saying i agree with all of the rules on here but they are HUKD rules and members will either have to follow them or face the ban, im not sure what the points are about, something that maybe remains and builds up each time you are banned maybes:?


how many hours you been back don, i think it would have been wise to have waited for a respnse on whether you can relist, the new rues are you cant for a week
#4
Welcome back don!
#5
Yeh agreed it did need a crackdown, and to some extent still does. But I did say to admin that I could provide them a picture of all the pens together... total of 7. I can fully understand the ban/banning system. Just felt I wasn't able to explain myself if you know what I mean. :D

Welcome back don!


Good to be back, especially with only 3 posts till 1000 :D

Woops... I relisted the other pens (not the ones that are the same as the ebay ones... to avoid any confusion). But the thread got locked. I didn't know we had to wait a week to relist stuff that got locked. :P

yes it needs adding to the FS?FT rules, its in the code of conduct rules but most who post in the FS/FT boards onlt tend to read the rules in there, they need to be exactly the same really so there is no confusion

learning the hard way :thumbsup: always the best. banned again doh
#11
FFS, why is he banned again??
banned#12
Got banned for relisting the pens (minus the ones on ebay). Sent an apology to admin as well. As mentioned above he didn't know that you had to wait a week. Looks like he has to wait now. As banned for a week. Amazing that an apology means nothing these days.
banned#13
Will he ever get to 1000 lol
banned#14
if the FS/FT is gonna be that strict then they really need to do something about the rules, making them clear and to the point, there are members on here that i have reported many a time and some have never even had a ban
#15
PMSL @ him being banned again
#16
It's a joke banning people imo.

why not just expire them, maybe ban them from listing items or ban them from posting in the fs/ft board? I mean, anyone can see the boards, so whats the point in the bans anyway?

why not message these people, explain what they have done wrong, and then leave it at that unless they do it again, and then ban them.

I agree :)

I got banned once for advising a member lol fun times, i once did a little detective work and found out that a forum member was selling an item on ebay and here and he was just asked to remove it from his list of things he was selling on this site,
#19
Extract from for sale forum rules:

Some offences may result in an immediate ban ......
1st offence: 1 day ban


A 1 day ban is not much of a penalty, but gives people time to think on what they have done, and to follow the rules properly in future.

If you want to trade here, you have to follow the rules, plain and simple.

Yeah, why have the mods spend a few minutes temp banning someone when they can spend several hours explaining the basics to them and arguing back and forth via PM and then having to keep an eye on them to make sure they don't break the rules again?

He got a 1 day ban for listing on ebay and on here, he apologised and offered to show proof in the form of a photo that he had both the pens on ebay and on here. Fine fair enough, 1 day ban.
He then started a thread asking if he could relist the pens. Nobody said he couldn't (fine he could have waited a little longer), so when he relisted the pens (minus the ones that got him banned in the first place) he didnt think he was doing anything wrong. When he was told that the thread was locked he apologies to Col, but instead of being told what to do and what not to do he gets a week ban. I'm baffed.
#22
émma i agree with you but this is a forum.....its nothing special theres 100's its got a good atmoshphere and i wouldnt want to use another simliar to it. but a simple lock the thread quick word in there ear seems alot more adequete than bans. thats all ill say

He should've PM'ed a mod/admin and waited for a response. It's that simple. If I were banned, I would check and double check everything 1st 9on my return.

People over complicate things on here.

How about, when you have been banned for whatever reason, when you come back you get a message.

You have been banned because you were doing this, blah blah blah. Please do not relist anything for a week, etc.

Would have been solved.

Don't you think this is a little bit extreme. He didn't relist everything in the original banned thread, so it's only natural you would think it was o.k. I just think it's a bit OTT

So why wasn't Don just asked? As he said to Col he would remove anything that may cause a problem.

You are, it's a part of the infraction/ban system. :)
#27
if he didn't relist the offending items again, surely he didn't breach the rule of not relisting the item?

how can u be sure of that though? Hawkio and I have 2 seperate accounts but alot of the time we have the same IP address, as we have 2 computers in the same household. It is completly plauseable that wearmyowngarms is a house mate

Possible, but he was posting messages that were supposedly from his "housemate", if you look through his posts, it is obviously him pretending to be his "Housemate".

Probably best to leave this, as the mods always say it isn't fair to talk about people who can't respond.

Me and Mercedes (Off Hollyoaks) also share the same IP address, but that's because I hacked into hers to read her personal e-mails.
She will be my wife. :)

Yeah you're 100% correct and the sooner the government fully implement the guilty unless you can prove your innocence the better. Not that it would work that well as a banned defendant has no right to defend themselves as they can't reply to their accusers:lol:

Personally I would have banned Don as a trader (seems to have a lot of very similar items for sale), no offence mate:thumbsup::whistling:

We have considered this, but wearmyowngarms joined less than three minutes after don was banned, never mind talking about the same day!

It could be chance that Don had just recommended his flatmate to HUKD that very day, but Don's been a member since before Christmas so that's very unlikely. :)
#37
it's not proven, but it's beyond reasonable doubt....
#38
I have signed up to forums in the past to defend my friends, when they have been banned or somthing, so I still think that it could be innocent

We have made a judgement on the issue. Any further concerns may be posted in feedback.
