In middle of the Metal Gear marathon I was just watching the chat and the gameplay and I randomly got banned,Anyone got any ideas why that happened?

did you say the same thing over and over again?
did you post a link?
did you type in all caps
(yeah that's all i got)

no I did none of that...I wasn't even chating honestly,Just watching the chat so the Commentary made sense,My real point of this topic is it possible to get my self unbanned from the chat?

Moderating the chat is extremely confusing at times. Unless you were repetitively breaking some of the rules which we set for the chat (spamming etc), there may be the chance you were accidentally banned. :(

If you feel as if you were unjustly banned send an email to tech@thespeedgamers.com and we'll see what we can do.

There is a chance that you are already unbanned, most of the time your first ban is only temporary.

Also feel free to read the FAQ to see if any of your questions are answered there:

Thank you Rust,I will be sure to send an Email to them but is there anything I should say specifically to get myself unbanned?

If you find you are still banned from the chat when it goes up (which it should in a few hours for the Final Fantasy marathon) send that address an email telling us your username in the chat and the reason you think should be unbanned. If we find there is no real reason you were banned it should be all good. _awesome_

I am using a connection where my IP is shared so theres a chance that It was an IP ban to someone else,I'm not sure of the possibility of that but ok thank you for the information,very much I've been exited for this marathon for a very long time since the mother marathon to be exact :P

Ok then, unless you or anybody else have any more questions I'll go ahead and lock this thread up.

It looks like your connection got messed up a couple times and fell out of the chat. I couldn't find any kicks under your nick. Maybe you just had an unstable connection at the time.

Oh that definitely could have been it.

EDIT: Nevermind I guess I just had a bad connection at the time...

That is exactly it. Vivi, I didn't like some of the crudeness you posted in the chat, but you were never kicked. MooCowJow however, who logged in on the same IP, posted a porn link which caused an immediate ban.

If you know who that is then you would do well to talk to him.
