    Default My threads have been deleted twice. I'll keep this up, I havent broken the rules.

    ^Can the moderator/administrator/forum guardian explain why? If my threads aren't violating any rules, they shouldn't be deleted. If they've violated anything, do let me know.

    With that said, here we go again.


    Hello friends,

    Take this as a rant, an immature argument, or a push for action - whatever floats your boat.

    Here's the story.
    This happened at 2355(GMT +8) 21st june 2019.
    My friend, DrHorny, quitted growtopia due to commitments in real life and passed TAMSUI her items and the world DrHorny, which serves as her main world. Despite what the world name might suggest to you dirty freaks, it literally serves as just a main world, nothing else. There were no sexual connotations of any kind. Moving on, after she(DrHorny) dropped all her items - complete with signs to show which items should go to which friend of hers, she superbroadcasted to express her gratitude to everyone that made this game enjoyable for her and conducted a final giveaway. She then logged off.
    A few minutes later, mutual friend of ours, presumably devastated by her departure, superbroadcasted "aiyo [insert name], scam me not enough now make girl quit game, grats.". "Bob*", obviously an disguised moderator entered and subsequently banned TAMSUI and DrHorny's accounts and nuked the world.

    So what now? Spam moderators? Spam superbroadcasts flaming new moderators for being too trigger happy?
    just kidding. We aren't unreasonable people, we emailed support. (no we did not flood their inboxes either)

    2 emails were sent, because we didn't provide enough details in the first and we were trying to make this process as smooth as possible.

    --
    1st email:
    Hello support I am TAMSUI. I got banned for 730 days on 11:55 , 2355 today, i was just afk replying to some messages, and i suddenly got banned! I'm sure i have done no wrong, or maybe not? But if i have sinned, please let me know.

    2nd email:
    Hello support,

    This happened at 2355(GMT +8) 21st june 2019.
    My friend, DrHorny, quitted growtopia due to commitments in real life and passed me her items and the world. Another friend of mine superbroadcasted "aiyo [name censored] , scam me not enough now make girl quit game, grats." minutes after DrHorny went offline and I got banned by "Bob*" - probably a moderator in disguise. I've done nothing wrong that I know of and find this extremely unfair. Please look into this.

    Here are the details:
    World name: DRHORNY
    World owner/admins(respectively): TAMSUI(me), DrHorny
    Time of occurrence: 2355 21st june (gmt+8)

    Looking forward to discussing your findings.

    --

    Their reply?

    Lets get this straight.

    "Your account was punished for sharing inappropriate, sexual content in-game"
    Really? because there wasn't even any signs nor structures with anything remotely sexual. Furthermore, the world was passed to TAMSUI by DrHorny as a means to pass DrHorny's items on; we can only trade 4 items at once and we dont have infinite inventory space.

    "Growtopia is a game primarily targeted at children, and we have absolutely no tolerance for sexual content being shared in it"
    Agreed! There shouldn't be any tolerance for sexual content to be shared and there wasn't any! Well, unless u count singular words as sexual content

    TAMSUI did not even own the world beforehand and it was merely used as a vessel used to pass multiple items on. You want to keep DrHorny banned and the world nuked? Be my guest but did TAMSUI really do anything wrong?
    Furthermore, the world name Horny isnt even nuked and there are many, many more people with names way more sexual than "DrHorny".

    What am i pissed off at? The fact that support seems to be shunning responsibility completely! Judge for yourself but it seems clear to me that they didn't even bother to check what really happened. Then again, why am I surprised?

    Going back to my first sentence, what is this thread? A rant? maybe. an immature argument? let me know if it is one. a push for action? yes!

    Trigger happy moderators should NOT be allowed to continue and people managing support literally are obliged to take this more seriously - they are getting paid to do this. This isn't the first time i've seen something like this happen but this was my tipping point. Point being, growtopia's management ways need to change.

    Thoughts?

    Banning because the name was "inappropriate"? What about this?

    HORNY!!! Excuse me!!!!!! Do you know that there are kids here!!!!

    But for real, the name isnt even that sexual. I doubt the mod checked the world to see if there was any sexual content in it, just looked at the name and dabbed on you guys

    Seems like it to me too. Unfortunately, support didn't prove to be of any help at all

    Well, I support you, but at some point let me tell you this,
    Sharing emails from support is against the code, they normally ban you for doing so.

    Lucky, your still here

    Dang this is an interesting case I agree that its quite unfair towards you. Especially the fact that they condemned you with a perm-ban is just crazy. Its just seems odd punishing an old player who has supported and played the game for years and gets banned for a silly and arguably unjustified way. I feel bad for you man goodluck on your case.
    Edit: Oh yeah sharing support emails is illegal like the person above me said. Thats probably the reason why your previois posts were banned.

    Is it? I've just went to re read the growtopian code and realised that i'm actually not supposed to repost deleted threads.. guess i'll stop if this thread does get deleted too but it would be nice to know why my thread is constantly being deleted because it really seems as though ubisoft is trying to silence us, the disgruntled players.

    Hm, i mustve missed that part out on the growtopian code. Regardless, I won't be able to illustrate my point properly without sufficient evidence - I'd end up sounding as though I'm a 5 year old kid fighting to be right just because i want to win.

    you just reinforced my already solid viewpoint that growtopia support is stubborn and inefficient. i had to wait a week for my wizard to be replaced because the wizard dropped without a warning after being broken instead of returning to my inventory like what most untradeable blocks do.

    also, getting banned because of a slightly inappropriate name?? that's ridiculous.

    i'm assuming your friend had the name for quite a long time. again, banning people without any form of warning whatsoever is not a good decision, ubisoft.

    Support needs to stop being lazy, and mods need to check before dishing out punishments.

    I support your reply but we players can do nothing. It’s been years and nothing really seems to change.

    Still, our voice means nothing. I gave up some time ago, I hope this guy gets help.

    Support is totally useless, I had to suffer from their lazyness too. Don't waste your time emailing them, just PM a forum guardian

    Emailing support about bans is literally talking to a wall.

    Their response usually looks similiar to this:

    Hello [nickname]/Growtopian,
    You were banned for [reason]!
    [copy pasted wall of text, different for every reason]
    You're not welcome to play Growtopia ever again, also we'll
    never respond to your emails anymore.
    Best regards,
    - Growtopia Staff

    (And no, this ^ isn't something I made up)

    If you do wish to get any help, talk to some Ubisoft dude and explain your situation to him calmly. Support is plain useless for resolving bans.

    After your post is deleted, it should be pretty obvious you shouldn't post the thread again and again. Your post was deleted for numerous reasons, one being that ban discussion simply isn't appropriate for the forums. You can see more about there here.

    Secondly, as aforementioned, posting your support desk emails is prohibited - they're private and they're supposed to stay that way. As such, I've removed them from your original post.

    I did look into the ban in question, and it was definitely warranted. You can stop posting threads now.

    Closing thread.
