    Hi all,

    As stated before, whenever you feel that your ban is unjust, we are happy to investigate your case again.

    If you are convinced that you have been suspended without a reason, or suspended although the punishment should have been lighter, in your opinion, we need you to appeal, only then we are able to investigate your case once again. However, we are not going to change our infringement rules anytime soon, and we are not going to discuss any bans with you, but we want to make sure that our rules are enforced appropriately. This goes both ways — we expect you to agree on and respect the rules, i.e. The Growtopian Code, while you can expect that those rules are enforced as they are presented to you, only if you have infringed them.

    You have to play fair, while we have to act just.

    As this discussion has become an argument about the thread owner's ban and whether it was unjust, I am closing this thread. As per our rules we are asking everyone to keep their conversation with Support private.

    Case1: I am a bfg owner, I have signs that say no auto allowed. However, people auto and my world got nuked and I'm suspended.

    Case2: I was joking around and Sb "I'm mod", as a joke and I got suspended for that

    Case3: some hacker passed me a item he got from phishing and I get suspended as ubisoft thinks I helped the hacker.

    Also some people get banned for doing soemthing that is really wrong but like I dont think it deserves a suspension??

    Sbing a 2 phrase mild vulgar (e.g Buy nood) for the first time should deserve a heavy punishment like 1year ban, max 2 year ban. But I dont think it needs a suspension.
    The point is just that some crimes are really serious and I think a max 730 day ban is already a huge punishment instead of suspension.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I've been looking through ig posts and I see many people suddenly getting suspended they claim to be afk and when they come back they are suspended. A really famous player just now claimed to be AFK in world show and was dancing. He went to sleep and when he came back he got suspended. I wonder even what is happening....
    Please provide ACTUAL proofs with solid evidence... Anyone reading from your first point will already know that whatever you say are all bullshit excuses to make it seem like they’re randomly giving out suspensions.

    Your first point is already clear to everyone that you didn’t even read the rules. How do you think Ubisoft is supposed to listen to you if you didn’t even do the basic thing to read the rules?

    The only reason why some of them got a suspension is because Ubisoft investigated their account. If they have been breaking rules very frequently then obviously they’ll receive a punishment. Again as I’ve said, if you don’t want to get banned, don’t publicly break the rules otherwise your account will get investigated and you’ll receive a longer punishment. Just don’t be dumb.

    I don’t think there’s any reason to explain why those crimes as mentioned by you deserves a suspension because it’s common sense. Seriously just take your time off and actually think about why these people got a suspension for the crimes they did. There’s so many loopholes to their crimes that’ll lead to bigger crimes that will harm the community. Think outside of the box...

    First of all,


    Default Autofarming and BFG with Autofarmers Punishment Rules

    As you know, we are actively banning all accounts that we detect using bots, macros, and other means of doing in-game actions automatically. These activities are illegal as per game rules. ALL accounts involved in those illegal activities will be suspended regardless of how wealthy or high-level their accounts are.

    These accounts affect both the game’s community and its economy in a harmful way, and we hope you understand our desire to tackle them in order to make Growtopia better.

    In line with that, ALL players that will be caught will face the following punishments:

    I. World with Autofarmer/s (this pertains to both private and BFG World Owners)
    World owners MUST be very careful in renting their worlds. We understand that checking and monitoring your worlds aren't that easy, but in order to clear these auto-farmers, we would also want to rely on you in monitoring your own worlds. Failure to do so will have the following consequence for their world (if we catch autofarmers in your world):
    1st - Warning (we will inform the world owner that we caught autofarmers in their world so they are aware)
    2nd - 30 days ban (for the world only)
    3rd - 60 days ban (for the world only)
    4th - Permanent suspension for the world (meaning the world will be closed down)

    Mods will investigate first before giving a punishment to any BFG world suspected with autofarmers. Please note that if we confirm 100% that the owner was aware of the autofarming we will apply the maximum sanction directly (world permaban). The 4 strike system will actually prevent us from banning BFG worlds directly.

    Example Situations:
    1. What if I have 2 or more worlds and my first world got a warning then I changed that world's name... what will happen if you catch an autofarmer in my other worlds?
    Your World#1 got a warning, after which you changed that world's name (NOTE: We will know that you changed your world name). Then your World#2 was caught with autofarmer/s. It will be considered 2nd offense so both BFG World 1 and 2 will get 30 days ban. Once the world ban period is over (after 30 days) and we found an autofarmer in World 2 again, only World 2 will get the 60 days world ban.


    II. Autofarmers (this also pertains to other players caught autofarming inside a private or BFG world)
    ALL autofarmers (whether a world owner, admins, other players) are punishable by PERMANENT suspension. No exception, no warning.

    Here is the official statement on the Autofarming, https://www.growtopiagame.com/forums...ar#post4006184

    Let me emphasize this, HAVING AUTOFARMERS IN YOUR BFG WILL JUST GET THE WORLD NUKED< YOUR ACCOUNT WILL NOT GET SUSPENDED!!!

    Secondly, the Sb "Im a Mod" Is suspension worthy,

    1, To stop drama,
    2, To prevent confusion (Even as a joke)
    3, To stop others from doing the same thing..

    Also for this "some hacker passed me a item he got from phishing and I get suspended as ubisoft thinks I helped the hacker. " When ubisoft reviews stuff like this they check IP and MAC adderesses, meaning that the system is nearly impossible to circumvent, secondly the idea that ubisoft just banned people without due process is just rediculous.. Also don't hang around hackers, end of story...

    would i come back if they let me in? that's a good question. a year ago i'd pay real money to get back, now i'm not quite sure. i've already purged everything growtopa-related from my developer record, as i don't feel i want other people to associate me with it. i love the idea of growtopia, and that makes me hate how mismanaged it is even more.

    in the end, permanent ban is something that, in my opinion, has to be thoroughly considered by multiple people on the staff, especially when applied to accounts with otherwise respectable record. when it's done without warning at a single person's discretion, and there isn't any appeal process, it shows incompetence of higher staff who have decided to let that happen. i don't think that growtopia is that popular of a game for a rule like that to be practical - it might harm the community more than it protects it.

    also consider their phrasing: when they permanently ban an account, they mean to ban YOU. you, as a person, are no longer welcome anywhere near this game. with no way to appeal the decision if you have indeed done something wrong. for the rest of your life.

    at a single moderator's discretion.

    i realize i've phrased this specifically to apply to my case, might not be useful for whatever discussion you guys have up there.

    Well you are right but some reasons for suspensions and some suspensions for some cases are hard and they are mentioned in details in previous comments
    Explain in what case is it harsh to receive a suspension then? Which crime doesn’t deserve a suspension? You never clarified your point but going full on defensive on yourself and autoclickers.

    And please don’t reply with “There are innocent people out there getting banned for something they did not do” because you basically have 0 evidence.

Perma bans should be removed to everyone except for hackers and ppl who sell ingame content for real money. I should get a 2 year ban but it shouldnt be permanent cuz its my first time getting banned and why dont we get 2nd chances were human afterall and we do mistakes. I never wanted to go there and mess around with some friends. Its not mentioned in /rules that even owning a csn world is a perma ban. They shouldve warned me to remove the lock or just nuke it.... I totally forgot about that world and just went there out of curiosity. Pls remove perma bans. I bet everyone who got banned 1-2 years learnt their lesson and a perma ban isnt needed. U can always keep an eye on players after removing perma bans and see if they're playing the game normally.

    If you got BANNED that means it is for a JUSTIFIED reasons and they should not give SECOND CHANCES!
    So please PLAY SAFE and do not do ILLEGAL THINGS!
    Shaking my head, there are rules for a REASON. And you must ABIDE by them, isn't that what RULES are FOR?

    like i said on page 3,

    no one would ever make threads like this unless they are banned, periodt.

    it's not an argument, it's a fact, don't like it then too bad, take the L & stay banned.

    So just because few people are wrongly suspended justifies unbanning everyone who did bad things?

    Sorry to say but Autoclickers bring more harm to the community than scammers, hackers, spammers and CSN owners. It's as worse as IAP Frauds except autoclicking is much more easier and accessible.

    If you're gonna make a counter argument with "But it's my first time", "What if I'm willing to change", "I didn't know autoclicking is illegal", then might as well stay banned because these are all stupid excuses players make everytime they commit a crime on purpose knowing it's illegal but only regret after they got banned.
    I couldn’t have said it any better, Leqend, you don’t seem to understand what a serious offense is, please read the growtopian code START TO FINNISH M8.
