Why is Daedalus banned?
 
I saw that it says "banned" below Daedalus's user name. What has he done?

indigolemon 02 April 2018 01:31

I think it may have been a mistake. I spoke to him earlier and he reported a spam post yesterday, then was banned for spamming.

As I am not aware of an issue with Daedalus that may have caused the ban, I have lifted it.

indigolemon is probably right, someone may have mistakenly banned him at the same time as the spammer he reported.

Sorry for the annoyance and thank you guys for pointing the mistake.

Not cool :(

DDNI 02 April 2018 12:51

‘cos he set up another Amiga group in the break away republic of Weegieland. :)

DamienD 02 April 2018 13:19

Ooops, that may have been me when deleting a spam thread that he reported.

I accidently had the wrong username selected, but then noticed the mistake and was positive that I reversed this.

...but guess not, since this thread has appeared :sad

Really sorry Daedalus, please accept my sincere apologies.

@everyone; if this accidently happens in future just PM a GM immediately and we will reverse.

Daedalus 02 April 2018 14:06

Ha, cheers guys :p Thanks for sorting it out, no problem at all. I thought it was kinda funny, getting banned for spamming after reporting spam :D

Yes, but :
1) if we're the banned one we can't do it, and
2) we can't know why someone has been banned

There are other ways to point the mistake out.

Email some EAB friends if you have already discussed with them via email.
Join IRC.
Join Lemon or some other boards. Contact some people who are also members of EAB.
Spend a few million euros and buy some advertising space in newspapers. You will probably reach some EAB members.

That's incorrect, if you are banned you can still PM moderators :agree

Also, when I accidently banned Daedalus he would have received a PM saying:

... that I had banned him.
... and the reason I gave: Spammer!!!

Oh no that sucks, poor Daedalus! I'm glad he didn't get miffed or anything, it would have been sad to lose his valuable contribution to the board for a misunderstanding.

Welcome back mate. Now let's ban DamienD for a day as punishment haha

*user Akira was banned for this post*

Galahad/FLT 03 April 2018 01:02

Yeah, I think i'll stop reporting spamming posts.

Hey, that attitude is the last thing we need at the moment! :crazy ;)

Edit: I see Damien still hasn't got the knack of using the new GM rapid-fire delete button! :evilgrin
