    Banned

    About a month ago I posted a message in a "wrong" topic and I was banned soon after that. When I log in it says that I must contact the forum administrator in order to get unbanned...

    I wasn't a troll or something and I think that the ban period was long enough, so how can I contact anyone who can unban my account?

    What exactly did you do? And what was your username?

    My login was stolichnaya_1989.

    I just answered in a topic, which was obviously about to be locked, some kind of new user created a thread about some essentials band for the certain genres... well, at least it was something like that. When I entered the forum on the following day, I was already banned. One of the moderators wrote that it is "a christmas ban" but the christmas were about one month ago...

    Have you tried contacting one of the admins yet to appeal your ban?

    It sounds like it was a very mild misdemeanor on your part if it was just posting in a dumb thread or posting something dumb. I'm sure if you just contact any one of them that they'll be more than happy to remove the ban without even so much as a slap on the wrist.

    You can contact them to ask about being unbanned at:

    webmaster AT metal-archives DOT com

    I hope I've been of some help.

    Good luck!

    Deaths_Design posting in a dumb thread or posting something dumb.

    Why should that NOT constitute a ban?

  • i got banned as well, and i have no idea why, its quite annoying to be honest.

  • the problem with banning people and closing threads all the time is that people just stop coming to the forums.

    which is something i have noticed. oh well, there are better forums to post on anyway

    Who's going to miss them? Only shitty threads are locked, and only people who ignite flamewars/trolling/whining are banned. The rapid influx of new forum users isn't going to stop any time soon, anyhow.

  • Just make a new name and don't whine. I've been in arguments with the mods before and still haven't been banned yet. Just don't post gay shit about Lamb of God and Slipknot and I don't see how you could be banned.

  • I've been Banned

    I have been Banned once as well on June 23rd 2008 My original name was Meatloaforever It was very annoying its like somebody has taken everything from you But i was racist and wrote and sent very offensive comments to other users It was very shocking and even worse i found out about it at about 7:30am on Monday Morning Horrible way to start the week

    I got instant Ip banned from the forum once about 2 months ago my username was RoundDisc. All i did was ask a question regarding the genre of a band and wanted to see what others thought and banned. I dont really care that much, just wanted to put that out there. I really wish i was IP banned tho..... and since when does you get banned for posting in the wrong section? thats like getting banned for mispelling or double posting.


    What the hell?

  • only shitty threads huh? and 'new users' doesn't mean shit, it just means people post once then never return. look at how dead reviews discussion is. but wait, there's metal discussion and its 10 posts a day talking about folk metal, sepultura's new shit, and the tons of posts in glam metal/hard rock. what quality

    the forums are as dead as the reviews are vapid and meaningless, and rightfully so considering the state of metal.

    and no, i'm not stupid enough to post any dissenting opinion on MA or anything else the big boys there might not like, because it'd be a waste of my time signing back up again just so i don't have to use the stupid google search for bands

    Well Metal-archives is shit for forum chat. They have a big period over anything you do wrong. I go on BDMC for chat and M-A for reviews (writing) and looking.

  • ok so I understand banned, and retired people...but christkiller was dishonourably discharged. Wtf does that mean?

    I think they made up that rank to avoid any possible glorification of being Dursted.

    Nothing wrong with the forum if you don't act like a fucking retarded douchebag. That's all. Don't believe for a minute RoundDisc was banned for just asking a question.

  • it should be called metal-partial-Archives...
