    Urgent

    Hello everyone. I was just disabled at what.cd, because I somehow re-invited someone that was once disabled without realizing it. So fair enough, I guess that is my fault, but when I went into the irc help channel, I was treated with complete disrespect by the person who PMed me. I have been a member of the site since the day it was created, and I consistently contribute lots to the site.. but this person refused to hear me out and promptly banned me from the irc server.

    I am so taken aback by this 'mod' (I won't post his name here) that I desperately want to talk to someone else from the site... possibly someone who cares a little bit more about the userbase. I am quite upset about this, because What.cd is a community that I am proud to be a part of, and I'll be damned if some stupid friend of mine is going to take that away from me

    Is there anyone here that could put me in touch with some sort of admin from the site? I would really really really appreciate it!

    If you read from his previous posts it seems that he might not be coming back to FST. I wish you the best of luck though.

    Visit the IRC to talk to staff.

    Yes, I did read the 1st post and the 1 you quoted below .
    The OP will not get help help here it seems so IRC is his/her only way to communicate with the staff.

    I was wondering why I hadn't gotten a response back, I guess I'll try my luck on the irc chan again (assuming the bad wasn't permanent )

    [22:24] <@TedMaul> Who is dwightschruteandange?
    [22:25] <@TedMaul> How do you know them?
    [22:25] <shno> I good friend of mine, who admittedly doesn't know a lot about torrenting
    [22:25] <shno> Why?
    [22:25] <@TedMaul> Who is pterodactyal?
    [22:26] <shno> Another close friend of mine from school...
    [22:26] <@TedMaul> Another?
    [22:26] <shno> What do you mean?
    [22:26] <@TedMaul> You mean THE SAME friend?
    [22:27] <shno> Definitely not..
    [22:27] <@TedMaul> Then I'm stunned
    [22:27] <shno> the same person? what happened?
    [22:27] <@TedMaul> Imagine the odds
    [22:27] <@TedMaul> Of knowing two people called Jessica Mayhall
    [22:27] <shno> Oh boy, thats annoying
    [22:28] <@TedMaul> Who both happen to use the same computer
    [22:28] <shno> the person I just invited wasn't jess, but a friend of hers
    [22:28] <@TedMaul> Then why did you send the invite to jessicamayhall@mac.com
    [22:28] <shno> Hmmm.
    [22:28] <shno> ..I wasn't really paying attention?
    [22:29] <shno> was it really that?
    [22:29] <@TedMaul> You say you know this person well, I think you thought we wouldn't notice
    [22:29] <@TedMaul> I don't believe that you'd be able to overlook that
    [22:29] <shno> you mean you think I was trying to give jess another account or something?
    [22:29] <@TedMaul> Yes
    [22:30] <@TedMaul> When you invite someone by sending an invite to an email with their real name in it then they get banned and you send them another invite to an email with the same real name in it that's certainly what it looks like
    [22:30] <@TedMaul> And for that reason you will not be re-enabled
    I agree with TedMaul's stance that it's quite difficult to believe that you didn't notice you were re-inviting the same person, considering that you were sending the invite to an email address with her real name in it. A user of your stature may have been given a second chance normally, but considering that (a) you already had a second chance, and (b) you came to IRC and (from our perspective) feigned ignorance, you won't be re-enabled.

    Sorry Shno, but you had your chances. We don't tolerate duplicate accounts, and we really don't tolerate people lying to us. Your account won't be re-enabled.

    Hello WhatMan,

    I really appreciate your reply. I'm sure you are constantly busy with the site, and would rather not deal with situations like this. Plus what you are saying makes sense.

    I know this is going to seem farfetched, but this all actually isn't what it looks like.. please hear me out. I had a house party on the 17th, and at some point in the evening a friend of mine asked me for an invite to what.cd. I didn't think anything of it because I frequently talk about the site, and at the same time I had been drinking for, well, many hours. I was outside at the time, so I told her to just go in and pull up the page and invite herself. I fell asleep at some point, and when I woke up I found that my account had been disabled.

    I went on irc, and was confused by what the mod told me. I really doubted that my friends would have duped me somehow, but I didn't remember the previous night too clearly, so I couldn't be sure. After making a couple very angry phone calls I found out that dwightschruteandange had gotten a mutual friend of ours to ask me for an invite since she had been disabled. I wasn't feigning ignorance on irc, I was genuinely confused and I usually like to trust my friends.

    Clearly my friends didn't understand how important the site is to me, and thought it wasn't a big deal. It was a dick move, and I am pretty sure they understand that now. Dwightschruteandange feels really bad for getting me banned (after I yelled at her.. go figure), and said that she would talk to or write an email to someone explaining what happened if it would help.

    I hope this all makes sense.. even if it seems a bit ridiculous. Please let her write you or something, because obviously what.cd means a lot to me! I have always been proud to be a member of the community and I would never do anything to hurt it. When my invites were first removed I was genuinely trying to help the site by finding old oink users, I just went about that the wrong way.

    Sorry for this massive post, but I didn't want to give up without figuring out what happened. I <3 what.cd!
