Got banned from a forum that don't give second chances...Got some questions

This topic is locked from further discussion.

I got banned from a message board on a different site which I didn't deserve the ban but that's not the problem. They don't even give second chances which is f***ing BS. Once you're banned, you're banned forever and you can't ever be caught with a new account. If they found out that new account would be banned too. Just curious does sites/forums only use IP address to track users or do they also use something else? Does 3G/4G have ip addresses? If so how do we change those? I can't change my internet's ip address so I gotta use my iphone to resister a new account.

It's better to do those things in real life.

Dont break the rules of the forum and you wont have to worry about things of this nature.Read the terms and conditions of the forum. Try to get along.Dont not swear it shows imaturity. Trying to help out .. Take care and be a little more patient.

Well I don't even have a chance to do those things now. I haven't been able to do that in 9 months which was when I got banned. Now I miss posting there a lot.

Why do you want so badly to be a member of a forum that clearly doesn't want you?

Obviously at a different site. It's the best basketball site on the internet.

It's not just me, all users banned can never come back and they ban people for stupid, small s*** that would just recieve a warning on gamespot or 3 karma loss on gamefaqs.

I answered it in my other response to the other quote. It's cause it's the best basketball site on the internet. It's called RealGM. I wanna get involved in discussions and a lot of things are happening in the off season.

gamespot had the same policy on bannings too but people still managed to bandodge. as some folks already mentioned there are lots of ways to browse the web with your real IP hidden, use them if that specific forum is something special to you.

This is true, though one must consider if it is really worth posting on a forum where you will be banned as soon as someone finds out who you are. Also a lot of times you can reset your IP address by turning off your router and turning it back on later (or at least this has worked for me in the past).

You can try a browser extension like Stealthy. Pretty easy and it's worked for me. I use it with Chrome.

I don't know what happened but you must have done something very serious to be banned! I would suggest staying away from the site because if you go back then they know who you are!!

Not if you are using a proxy they wont! and you don't have to do something serious to get banned - one forum I was banned at because I criticized a mod for banning people for silly reasons lol (srs) some mods go on serious ego trips and manage to nearly ruin an otherwise good online community

Ah I see well I am rather new to internet forums so I suppose I will have to tread carefully from now on when I'm on this and other sites!

At most they would IP ban you which is stupid if they do.  Either way you'd find out pretty quickly if they IP banned you by trying to sign up again (duh).  If they did google how to change my ip address.  Sometime if you just reset your router it will issue a new address or you can change it manually.

If your well known in that forum you may want to change your posting style...
