ACCOUNT BANNED BY ASKIMET? Please read...

Hi all!
As some of us already know (and experienced), Askimet, which is the automatic SPAM-assassin that helps keeping our forum clean.
Sometimes, though, it does have a glitch and bans the occasional regular user.
If that happens to you, you are banned from logging into the forum with your username, and from visiting it with your IP address.
Instead of that, you get to see a message telling to contact the admin-email address of this site, which is, unfortunately, not very well tended anymore, probably because it's being spammed all over as well.
So, what to do?

First, if you know someone of the admins or moderators, you just ask them to un-ban you again. Pretty easy.

Secondly, since most of you don't know any mods or admins, but maybe know another user of the 11sc, you ask them to post in this thread on your behalf, that you got banned and mention your banned user name, and usually within a day one of the mods/admins are able to un-ban you again.

Thirdly, if you don't know any other user, but maybe have another computer at hand, or you can easily change your IP address (by resetting your router, for example) you can create a new account and either use that one to do what I described in secondly, or keep on using that account for your 11sc.

I hope that helped a bit, I'm sorry if this might have happened to you, please rest assured that this is really just a product of over-protectiveness of this automatic SPAM-assassin, and is in no way meant to be personal.

Cheers!

Wolfi

Hey - My account was banned and I'm only able to access this forum by using a proxy server.  The username was banned was "spinaltap" but I'm pretty sure it's connected to my IP address.  I tried emailing the website administrator a bunch of times to no avail - saw this thread and hope it can help!

My account was also banned by Askimet while I was posting a link to a video of mine on youtube...had to access the 11 Second Club from work.  The username that was banned was "MSmith" - I also saw this thread and hope it can help!
(are we not allowed to post stuff from youtube anymore?)

Hi!
While unbanning another account, I found yours banned as well, and unbanned it, too. It is of course still allowed to post youtube vids on the forum, just how exactly this antispam assassin works, is beyond me. I mean ignoring people with more than 10 posts or who are members for more than 2 weeks would eliminate this problem totally.

Re: ACCOUNT BANNED BY ASKIMET? Please read...

My account was banned by Askimet but I do not know why. My user name is "harman". I created a new user name, "Droopy", using a different email and have been able to get in, but I would prefer to use my original account. Can someone remove the ban to my user name and/or IP address? Thanks.

it looks like my account - animatorXXX- has been banned but I don't know for sure - maybe happened something else, but I can't log in with my username and password. When I search for my account in user list I can't find it. It seems like it has been deleted. Any help, please
