    I got outright banned for like 2-3 weeks for posting a "2nd FS" thread

    no warning and no way to contact the admin.

    I couldnt even talk to anyone in my inbox.

    just something to think about.

    The rules were your warning, and there's a "contact us" link at the bottom of every page.

    Looks like they thought it out pretty well.

    Didnt know that. Never been banned. It does work when you're not logged in though, so I figured it was universally available.

    And then to think there is a warning sticky thread that had been up for months giving instruction that the FSFT rules are not being followed, and you should make sure you abide by those... Or you will be banned.

    pretty sure it's an issue with too many "ah, what ever"'s coming to roost. Now it's time for hard rules to get everything back in line as we were straying to hard off course. I bet you'll be more focused on that rule now?

    if i clicked log out it would give a "denied, youre banned" warning. didn't think clearing cookies would change that, didn't even try. and yeah, stick, extra careful now. im dont even know what I said to get banned, I thought I was being careful.

    I can guarantee it had something to do with the last 3 times you broke the rules out of your current logged 22 infractions. Maybe read the rules and brush up?

    I know I swore in soapbox, that is what it said, I just had no idea what I said because I thought I was being careful. oh and im not griping or anything, might seem that way, but thems the rules. and like I said, treading carefully(trying).
