I was just recently banned for posting unathorized footage and i dont know what i did. i posted a link to an early beta of the first TR game and was banned for a week. I want to know what is considered authorized and unathorized footage so i dont get banned again. The reason being is that i have found a funny AOD Lara VS Legend Lara on youtube and want to show it to the forums but i dont want to get banned again .any advice?

AOD Lara vs. Legend Lara video was already posted. Your thread will get closed if you get banned.

I've been a member of these lovely forums for years now, and not been banned once. Infact most users have never been banned. Follow the forums T&C, and read all sticky's. Yes, there was a sticky about posting beta TR1 footage. Should have read it my friend! ;)

I've never been banned so I don't really know what footage you can and can't post. The only footage I know is bad is the footage of cores tra.

It was probably from Core's, yes there are certain things that are completely banned here. But don't feel bad, just avoid them, and read the descriptions before posting something like that, or anything risky here. :)

Yup, i've had my experience with those clips. I was told to remove them ASAP. :p
Whew!

I know one Rule is about making another forum account. The only other forum account I've used is my 2nd. This is the first post on my ORIGINAL user name. I had lost my password for my first. But I was sent a Happy Birthday email from this forum, so I decided to see if I could reset my password, I did. And now, here I am. Finally.

Whelp. Looks like I'll just have to be banned for life now. Oh well.

Edit: Also, this is my first time back in over a year.

You can get banned for a number of things, such as:


Excessive language
Harassment of other members
Taking credit for something you don't own
Creating "spare" forum accountsThere's some more, just check out the T&C. ;)

Hello Fish. I don't remember you from last time I was here under my other account. Nice name BTW. ;-)

My 2nd wasn't really a spare in the sense that I wanted to... do whatever it is people could do with a 2nd forum user account. Like vote in Polls or talk to myself or evade bannishment. I'm familiar with the Terms & Conditions. This was more a matter of... Principle I guess. This is the name I wanted to use originally and dab-gummit... I'm gunna use it! >:-D

But really, I don't care if I get banned. My other user name is... er, was Capt. Murphy.

I remember Captain Murphy. Probably would it have been wiser to PM Justin directly though Tom?

Hey Captain! It's been a while since I've seen you around here. :wve:

Drewy, Camera Obscura. Hi! :-D Nice to know I'm remembered. Probably not for anything (relatively) good... But remembered none-the-less. Maybe I'm more notorious than anything else. :->

He never answers PMs. :pi: He said it himself: He doesn't have time, so he just deletes them all except for if they're reports.

Marukisu: You can also get banned for double posting.

Greetings. Your first account is just fine, and you last logged in using Capt. Murphy last night. What is the problem here? Please drop me a PM. Thanks.

Ah, my other screen name is banned. I hope I won't be getting those 'Happy Birthday' emails anymore. And that name was pretty cool. Tom Braider... TomB raider. :cln: Too bad things didn't work out from the beginning.:o

I have another question, if a person has been banned, and are unbanned again, will that make that person a "bad" member amongst the mods/admin or is there forgiveness for that?

No grudges as held.

People are taken for how they act now. Unless they deliberately transgress again. Then their past behavior won't do them any favours.

But thanks for the reply! :) Highly appreciated! ;)

I've been banned twice.

Once for a terms and conditions violation, and once for an inappropriate joke.

On a scale of one to four, how cool am I?

I've been banned once because i let my cousin on my computer. He didn't want to register,so he bumped old threads with my account.

luckily,only three.


and WHAT IN THIS WORLD CAN I DO?He was eight years old and his mother(my step aunt,or in other words my mothers brothers third wife) is really annoying!if you don't let him do something he wants,she goes to INSANITY!

I apologize for anyone who found that offensive...

I've been banned 3 times... Which a lot of people find strange because I', not the type of person to break rules. Anyway, they were for the following:

Spamming (O_o I don't even recall what it was that was spam, but meh)
Registering somewhere I shouldn't have (I fail to see how simply registering somewhere is cause for a ban...)
Posting something about something unauthorised.

That is all :cool:
