IP ban is meaningless - there are so many ways to get around it (most of the time just by resetting your router). I'd be surprised if it were used here.

If you're suspended you can still view the site but if you're banned you won't have any access.

at the end of the day if you have dynamic ip... most isp only offer dynamic ip to home customers and yes you delete your cookies then you will be fine.

ip banning should be banned as what happens if an innocent ends up with that ipaddress?

the only thing that is linked to a computer is the MAC address and this is linked to the network card, the mac address is not viewable on the internet and even if it was most mobos come with two ethernet cards so just use the otherone or even use a virtual machine instead

lol:w00t:

Any ban is obviously circumventable. Just about everything on the internet is. The point is not to prevent someone from coming back in a bullet proof way - it is to make the point that we do not approve of whatever has happened.

gary_rip give whatever is upsetting you sometime to cool down as I really wouldn't want to see you off the site.

I'm not sure thats even a proper sentence as it doesn't make sense... not upset tho... just that if someone is banned and they can still see the site it means everyone else is missing out as they can take but cant post deals! seems silly, they should be able to post deals but have them moderated!

Yep thats been my point for ages!

I got banned and had the message like Pinkitty, so I deleted all my cookies/cache etc and viewed the site as a guest. I

In the 24 hours I sold something at AV that I would normally sell here (since been using AVForums more for my 360 games), saw a deal I might have posted had I not been banned and a few threads where I could have helped the OP.

I still got a benefit from the site! This is one of the key drivers behind giving people warnings instead.

So what's the point of warnings if it doesn't lead to a ban? :thinking:

I meant, how the attitude has changed to give people a warning rather than a straight ban for minor infractions
Warning are just that a warning to say something is wrong and dont do it again, it should only lead to a ban for repeat infractions.
They dont automatically lead to a ban

i.e. in my case I was trying to help with something and PM'd a mod to check all was ok but rather than get a reply and a comment in the thread I got a straight ban.

In this instance I become a "taker" from the site and not a "contributor", HDUK also loses any potential referals for a deal I might post. With the recent change I would have got a warning and if I commit a similar offence then a ban which is better IMO

Your ban was before we brought in the suspended option and FS forum offences were being given an immediate ban instead of a warning infraction.

Yeah I know I was using it to highlight the progress that HUKD had made by moving away from this scenario and onto a warning for smaller 1st time offences as opposed which is a good move as far as I'm concerend

And to answer Gary_Rip'spoint about what happens when you get a ban

ccleaner is awesome.

Abusing multiple IDs to enter a competition run by hotukdeals is not a good idea. Nuff said.
