"Why did they get Banned?" Catch-All Thread

Figured this could be a catch-all thread since they usually always spring up once somebody's account gets banned?

I was recently curious about malevka's status. I know malevka never posted much and primarily just wanted information about various things that resulted in some necroposting. But I know malevka also works on sprites for Mugen fighting games, and I've had good interactions with malevka on other sites.

Do you get extra special bonus points for being banned for posts in the Why Are They Banned thread?

Between the lack of new users being allowed since Krang isn't around anymore to approve new registers, some old people just stopping to come here, and all the bans, pretty soon we'll all be talking to ourselves.

No kidding.

Can we loosen up on old bans like, Commenter_42's?

Usually when someone gets banned a thread about them pops out or people can easily see why they've been banned. people don't get banned out of the blue. Bans most often happen after heated arguments or people caught circumventing previous bans.

A thread like this implies people get banned on a weekly basis here. They don't.

Maybe monthly?

My guess is that malevka was banned because he could come by every couple of months and bump a number of decade old threads asking how he could get in touch with a user who left the forum 4 years ago. The posts would get deleted every time so you won't see it in his post history, but it must have constituted spam. People would tell him the guy was gone & not to bump old threads but he just kept doing it.

I know there's a language barrier there, and some of the necro-posts could across as random trying to make contact with folks (usually for sprite/Mugen resources), but I really doubt it was intended to be annoying and was likely a genuine inquiry.

That to me feels like a very flawed system, I introduce a friend to the technodrome and it took him like a month to become I new member.

Well if you click Krang's profile you can see he hasn't been here since October 2017, where he just made a thread about the drome's 18th anniversary and disappeared again.

He seems to only come by once a year now for anniversary threads even though he's on the forums only once or twice an entire year.

I'm lurking at the Fwoosh forums and some people have waited 4 months for approval, or forgot about the whole thing cause it toook too long. So it is a problem that we're not getting in new members, especially now that a brand new show is going on.

Maybe instead of celebrating the next birthday of the drome, we should be celebrating, THE DEATH OF THE TECHNODROME.

LOL, better than my response. Cubed, we all know you wouldn't be celebrating if you woke up one morning and the drome was gone. Damn I wouldn't be.
