Hey, well good bye to my beautiful FAQs
From: mslpanthers12 | Posted: 2/1/2005 9:19:07 PM | Message Detail
Hey,

well for some reason, me asking if you could put cuss words into a FAQ got me banned, totally from the boards, so I had to get on my other comp. I guess this is the end of my FAQing career, and well....I think it was a totally unfair call. I did not violate the TOS in anyway. It was fun, I cant even log into my other account so there is no way of me getting it back. See ya guys

For as far as I know, getting banned from the boards does not stop you from writing FAQs. Too bad though it happened like this.

You got banned for a single censor bypass? (Which is what the post you mention had...banned words must be COMPLETELY obscured)

You should be able to link your new account to the contributor account.

I highly doubt that's the reason you got banned. Did you send an obscene message to the mod in a moderation contest?

He got modded for a CB. As a matter of fact, kenb pointed that out to him.

Depends on moderation history as to punishment but as someone already mentioned, this has no relation to submitting FAQ's.

I have a good moderation history actually, and no, I didnt even get to comment back to the moderator since it wouldnt even let me into my account, all i saw was You are banned from the board.

Anyways, I will try get to back to FAQing.

Were you banned or suspended? If you were suspended, maybe they will have pity and let you off with a warning or purgatory.

You're right, that's completely unfair. I mean, it's not like he was caught copying and pasting things uncredited from other sites or anything... Oh, wait.

Wow. Insulted by CJayC. That's got to hurt.

Whoops. Next time, tell us the rest of the story before making topics like this.

Oh well, hopefully that is a lesson learned and welcome to the ranks of those who can't seem to either give proper credit or can't do their own work.

CJayC showing up himself, making this about something else than an unfortunate forum post...

Man, did this take an unexpected turn or what?

FAQ Contributors 2:1 - And CJayC came down from the heavens, and He said unto mslpanthers12, "Thou shalt not copy other people's work." And mslpanthers12 was banned from the boards. And there was much rejoicing...

That sounds a little more reasonable. You don't get banned for censor bypassing, especially just one time.

Breaking the cardinal rule......that's not good.

I've found a ton of codes for NES games that I have listed here on gamefaqs and I see them turn up on all kinds of other sites. I know how it feels to have my hard work finding these codes simply taken by someone. One site even took my NES Shockwave codes, where you have to enter your name as AdamL to get the codes to work, and they insisted that they did not steal them. Idiots.

I wonder what mslpanthers plagiarized. He was cranking out some NES guides too. Oh well :)

50 FAQs for games never covered at www.GameFAQs.com.
Now with a NES FAQ for each letter of the alphabet!
From: Revned | Posted: 2/2/2005 4:07:49 AM | Message Detail
I talked to him this afternoon after he got banned. I was asking him which NES games he had written for, and he still thought he was banned for a censor bypass. He freaked out when I said CJayC thought he was plagiarizing. He emailed CJayC to try and find out what he had done, and the response was apparently pretty rude. Now, for all I know he could be lying about the whole thing, but I think I believe him.

And why were his NES guides taken off? How on earth could he plagiarize for games that have no guides written for them anywhere?

That would be the list of FAQs that he had wiped (all in one location), so knock those NES ones back onto the list Revned.

honestgamer is a site where a reviewer (forgive me for forgetting who, I think it is midwinter) admins it, but have nothing to do with it (staff or contributing). Seems like a fine site however, I just don't want to update 113 FAQs on two other sites to start contributing there.
