    Banned?

    What does it mean when the word "Banned" is shown under a member's username?

    Means they are no longer on the forum. Reasons for banned members, spamming/selling products/promoting products for financial gain is usually the reason for most bans. But could be anything, causing problems with other members, trolling, creating multiple accounts, inappropriate posts, the list goes on.

    @kayss what type of mobile are you using? Try switching your browser and see if that makes a difference.

    That's correct as you are not allowed to create multiple accounts. So your multiple acct "MochaFR" was banned for that reason.

    Banned question

    Hi gymrat I was hoping you could help me with this question:

    My last account "runstinrun" was banned recently (last week) but there was no reason associated with the banning. I had only posted a few times recently usually in response to the new members thread or a thread on a recipe I had just ordered the products to make. I know that multiple accounts are not allowed, but I was worried that I would not be able to access the site material to make the recipe I ordered the ingredients for and so I made an account using my other email address. I also tried to contact the site managers via email about this problem but haven't had any responses.

    So basically I'm saying, I don't want to break rules by making multiple accounts, but I also didn't know how to reach out for help with this forum, which has been so informative and amazing (even though I have mostly lurked up until this point). I hadn't ever posted content that was trying to sell items or for personal promotion or broke any rules that I know of on my old account (no swearing, no starting fights, or communicating in any unethical matters), so I didn't know why my last account was banned. I just really hope to get involved with the community. And if there is anything I can do to get right with the forum (deleting my banned account or letting me know why the other was banned or letting me know if I need to do anything else to not get this one banned) please let me know. I can't even view my other posts actually as they seem to have been deleted? This is okay because they weren't that important, but I hope with a fresh account I may not run into the same circumstances!

    Thanks for your help!

    Hello I do see the multiple acct created, and will check on why the other was banned. Our system is tight with spam related content and its always possible the original acct was removed for this reason.

    I have made note of the new account. Thank you!

    Hi again Gymrat! I was actually contacted by whoever answers the "contact us" site emails late last week, and though he didn't let me know what had happened or why my account was banned, he said he would just delete my old one so that this one (catbe) is not deleted. So I'm hoping everything is okay now! But of course let me know if I can do anything.
