That's not exactly my decision to make. I'm not going to encourage either way.

I'm going to stick to neutrality.

If you don't behave like you did before, you should be fine.

Marking for deletion is different than actual deletion. Follow the instructions.

No. Like I said, it was never deleted.

No.

If you want in that badly, try to login, but if it reports back that you're banned, I'm not going to do anything about it.

I don't know much about that, so I can't say anything about it.

Accounts of your nature given that you're not a spambot, don't get deleted anymore (with exceptions based on case by case), you'd have to get experimental and simply try logging in.

That depends:

If you were banned: then you can't
If not: nothing is stopping you.

I'm just telling the truth.
That's rather subjective. A lot of what you posted (and deleted) were random rants about post counts or services that SM has no control over and there was also a spurt of PM spam too.

Maybe you can convince them to let me return to Simple Machines Forum and become a better member there. Just a suggestion.
No, I'm not going to be doing that.

While what you were posting was tame in comparison to some I've dealt with on MT2, it was rather worthless and the warnings were actually valid and weren't false. 

* Gary also participated in the team discussions I mentioned previously.

Remember we (the team) are the moderators, we decide what is best for our forum. You can disagree with the decisions all you want, it wont change much.

Why should we have given you a break? We're doing our jobs in moderating the forums, and ensuring a safe, spam-free experiences for everybody, which will mean that bans or warnings are necessary.

You posted a rather consistent amount of worthless posts, that it annoyed many.

I have no involvement or interest in Illori's unofficial forum. The only interaction she and I have is exclusively on the official one.

Given what you posted on there, I'd say their actions were justified. There were discussions in the team boards on what to do about your behaviour.

Her's hasn't had a post on it in months nor would I consider ~750 posts total all that successful especially since it's been around since 2012.

Well, lets just go with the fact that you're not really able to compete with the fact that I'm the Leader of the SMF Customisation team and have been for a total of five years, and have been on the team as whole for 11 years. Combined with being a member of the company board of directors for five years.

So I've been around a long time, and seen practically every unofficial support forum fail. Many don't see the need for unofficial support forums when the official one is superior for reasons that generally, that's where the people who know what they're talking about are going to be, and that isn't exclusive to SMF either.

I think I'll stick to what I have at the official community which is more then what you can ever achieve with the unofficial one.

I had a quick look over there, and it's bleh.

Unofficial support forums don't do very well for reasons that should be rather obvious.



As for showing links to profiles and knowing ID numbers, I know my way around SMF and the theme I developed that this forum is using. Your website link is displayed next to your posts.

I'm also more relaxed than most.

I can bypass locks, so that's redundant.

Besides, straying into a different area of discussion in a topic when it happens is not a bad thing.

Given that this is not a forum about supporting SMF, and is in fact about the Bongo Comics Group, of course there wouldn't be a showcase.

That'd be rather obvious.

Lets just say that over there, you lasted a lot longer because it's actually not down to a single person if a member is banned, which I have reason to think that you were.

Many over there are a lot more forgiving than I am, when you factor in that bans are actually decided by me alone.

Besides, this forum only exists now for integration sake and not much else.
