I have been banned from FA (not an april joke)

by
I got a message that of a few hours ago I was banned from FA for 3 weeks. I don't think it's an april joke, despite the lie that start the message (I'm told that despite regular warnings I kept posting cub art. While my links to Inkbunny can be considered by there really vague terms of services as posting cub art, they were never warned to me. I've got arts who was removed, but the art dated back before the cub ban and according to their own messages about those removals, no pursuit would be issued about art dating before the cub ban. So no pursuits became pursuits validating a ban). Guess messaging me that what they told me was a lie so I could remove the art was not on their mind. They also removed and edited art that wasn't violation of their AUP (when I pointed it out, they just gone silent) but guess that was also considered warnings.

Since I can't show the messages that they sent me about the arts they removed, I guess it's up to each of you to believe me or not on the subject. Thanks to their really vague rules, there isn't much I can do about it (even contacting them can be considered a violation of my ban according to them) so guess peoples who are interested in me can still read me here. Since someone called me a liar about all this, I'm not even feeling really well right now so don't hope for much chatting today.

Oh, I've got a message from build-a-bear saying they are making Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie plushies. I think this info may interest peoples. It was one of their official e-mail and the plushies were on the website, so I guess it's true (I thought it was an april joke when I got the message).

FA bans people just if the admins don't like them. I got permabanned from the site without breaking any rules and without ever getting a warning or anything beforehand. Just try convince people to leave. Not worth even trying to fix it any more. Even when you get unbanned, just say you aren't posting there and people can go to IB to see your stuff. Eventually they'll either fall into obscurity or get their act together.

Hard to do when 1,000,000 Furs are still using it :(

Yeah, it's not easy but it can't happen if people don't do it. It doesn't mean ignoring the stuff on FA, just not posting work there. If one person stops posting and convinces two people to stop and they convince another two to stop... If you get the bigger posters to do it then it becomes easier to convince the "smaller" users.

Then if they stop the chain reaction could cause FA to lose popularity and soon shut down X3

Too many peoples post there for now.

Oh, gee, a known Cub artist/fan got banned from FA?  Must be an April Fools joke :p

This is why I only work with teens and not cubs •When it comes to FA and porn•

This is why I don't visit FA and killed my account a couple years ago.  Dramaneer can take his site and shove it.  Frankly I'm surprised that people are shocked when they get banned on FA.  They seem to do it on a whim these days with their asshat admins and lack of real leadership

*hugs* Sorry for the bad news. Coincidentally, I got permabanned from FA on April Fool's Day in 2010.

Yeah. I left FA a long time ago, and honestly I don't have any trouble believing you.

All the mods need is one complaint, even unverified, and they'll remove the pic, (happened to me) and possibly ban you. Don't even have to be breaking the rules. Just posting something one person doesn't like seems to be enough, and with FA basically a breeding grounds for hate...
Loupy
5 years, 7 months ago
Yep, that what happened to me before.

The FA Admins are all dickheads.

The MLP plushies certainly aren't a joke, though. I saw them at the Build-A-Bear in Oxford on Saturday.

Don't let the ban get you down. (I know - easier said than done)
You still got your fans over here at IB.

They banned more and more stuff for various reasons over at FA and soon they'll officially ban babyfurs (not just the art, but users that are known babyfurs) in their usage policies.
As far as I'm concerned, I'll use FA to view pictures, but I won't post anything there anymore (assuming I will create something I deem worthy to be shared).
This actually is the worst thing that I can do to them, because they live on the content that we artists upload - the less artists use FA to post their art, the less interesting it will become.
And yes - they'll always stay big because big piles of shit attract many flies - but there will always be other places to go.
FA isn't the centre of the (Furry-Art-)World, so just do one simple thing: As soon as your ban is over delete your art, move it somewhere else and post notices where needed (keep in mind that many people don't read journals).

I hope you'll feel better soon.
Loupy

It's actually the biggest art site available, and most arts ban babyfur arts anyway.
Nightwalker
5 years, 7 months ago
Well - if nothing else helps, try to host the stuff yourself (no, this isn't an "If you think you can do better...")

Just put it up somewhere behind a password-wall (check the laws of the country you want to host your stuff in) and send the password to people you know will care...

But I think there will always be a site where we can post and view cub-stuff, so that hopefully won't be neccessary.

I've got a private gallery but it's not the same
Nightwalker
5 years, 7 months ago
Yeah, I know. :/
*gives you big huggles and cuddles* But no matter what those people on FA might do or say - there are still folks out there that like you and your art.

That's why I never even started posting to FA. IB is so much easier to use anyway.

My first account was banned 5 years back (long story) so I left the fandom in 2009. Now I'm back and I still don't know the Admin that banned me. I know how I got banned but don't know who.

Anyways your account says that you have been suspended so eventually it will be reinstated.
Loupy
5 years, 7 months ago
As said in the topic, it's a 3 weeks ban.

Whether or not how you got banned, it's still messed up that you got banned -_-
Loupy
5 years, 7 months ago
Yeah, but nothing I can do for now

Linking to off-site sources of stuff not allowed on FA is enough to have that submission/journal/comment removed and can result in a ban. It's seen as "working around the rules" of FA since you're still helping people see banned content by using FA.
Loupy
5 years, 7 months ago
Yes, but they said I got ample warnings when I got none, so don't get here supporting those liars.
kleet
5 years, 7 months ago
They did warn a lot about mature-cub work, but the fact I'm on IB shows I don't really support them.

FA: Liberty and justice for some.

i remember exactly. That IS what it said. from what i remember they were goin to delete the old cub art themselves.
but in reality, it's just being sloppily run by lazy people
Loupy
5 years, 7 months ago
Yeah and they said they would not take actions against old cub art, but they did.

*hugs tightly* I'm sorry to hear about the ban honestly it wouldn't surprise me like you said earlier if they were to ban any users that are known cubs/babyfurs.
