[NOT A BUG] Banned for asking questions? [Linux]

Post by thesofine » 28 Sep 2008, 19:43

So twice today I was banned for asking questions. Literally typing "??" and being banned. Both times I was walking through the maps attacking monsters. The first time I was in the 1st level of the mine and the second time I was in the new "volcano-created" map. Any advice would be helpful. Through a search of this forum, I see that a similar bug has occurred twice in the past (people being banned for texting). Thanks/thesofine

I wouldn't even know how to do that. Nor, would I do it.

Let me rephrase Turmfalkes post: Did you send a high number of chat lines in a short amount of time?
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

well, it turned out it was the use of text "smileys" that got me banned. I was not aware of this "anti-spamming" feature until I asked the question today. Thanks for the help.

What's with the lynching attitude in our community these days?

Cool down, chill out, do something. This doesn't seem warm and welcoming anymore.

No. We want you all to quit bitching and back-sit-moderating. Otherwise the management will also become impossible., your choice.

This is not AOL chat.

Thesofine, this is not a bug, you have hit anti-spam protection. I think one question mark per question is quite enought.
