Hi, I have yet another question. All over WI I have been seeing people who instead of it saying "webkinz" or "gift guru" or "gifted" or "gift trainee" or "lil kinz" it says BANNED! What does this mean? How do you become banned?

Re: Banned
Banned members are members who have repeated broken the rules or have done one serious offense, such as try to scam someone on this forum. Usually they're banned for a reason but you're not allowed to ask anyone or discuss about it.

Re: Banned
Ooops, will I get in trouble?
Or is it okay because I asked in the Q&A forum?

Re: Banned
It's okay that you asked this, you were merely curious :nod: Just dont ask how a certain member got banned, because thats between them and the staff.

Re: Banned
Just to add to the above, you're not allowed to discuss why a specific person was banned on the forum, and if you ask a Moderator privately, they'll tell you that the policy is to not discuss it, to protect that person's privacy. Basically, that person broke a rule of some kind. There's no way to know which rule they broke unless you know that person outside of WI and can contact them.

Edit: You won't get in trouble for asking about this in general. What you're not supposed to do is talk about a specific person. Like "Why was So and So banned?" or "I think So and So was banned because..."

Re: Banned
Exactly what Ave said, it's fine because you were just being curious. It's just asking about people who are banned in specific (for example, usernames) that is not allowed. :)

Re: Banned
You are Banned when you break a WI rule; basically if you do something bad and you get reported or a moderator catches you; you'll be banned for a number of days, depending on what you've done (I think..). So if you follow the rules, you'll be fine! :)

Re: Banned
Banned members are kind of suspended or expelled from WI because they disobey the rules. It depends how badly the disobey. Sometimes a month, sometimes three months, sometimes seven days and in the worst case, Forever!
