Nah, you were probably banned.

The most common (and easiest) ways to get banned are by using all caps repeatedly, spamming random junk repeatedly, or requesting someone to do something pertaining to some sort of sexual innuendo.

Hi,

I've unbanned you for now, but please keep in mind that all site rules apply to livestream chats as well! They can be found at http://www.crunchyroll.com/library/Site_Rules. The most common things that I've seen folks banned for are:
Spamming
Repeated ALL CAPS over and over
Sexual stuff (rape references, asking cosplayers to lift skirts, etc)
Swearing

If you still have trouble, or are similarly banned, please PM me and I can see about getting you back into the stream.

Hmm apparently I must be banned too, I can't see words or respond either. It'd be nice if we were notified or even given an automated response as to why we were banned. That way we would know why and could correct it so that it doesn't happen again. I had no clue that I was banned, I just figured it wasn't working and it wasn't that important to me to bother with. Good to know though that this means you were banned. I think adding a link or something next to the streams would help greatly for problems like this.

I'm hoping to talk with the site staff about ban messages on Monday, since this comes up with every livestream. At least a link to the rules, or a message about the common reasons people are banned from the chat if a user has been banned would be nice to have. However, they're always busy making everything better, so I'm not sure where it will land in the priority list, or if it's already there.

You should be unbanned as soon as the next livestream is up.


Below is background information - not directed at you, krioni87, or anyone else, but hopefully might clear up some details in general:


As I've said before, we try to be a bit more flexible with some rules (like the all caps thing, since it's great to be exited! - just don't continually spam all caps), while others are just as firm (posting links to sex sites or illegal hosts). In general, just try to be nice - that means not asking cosplayers to lift skirts, don't mention rape, don't spam, that kind of thing. http://www.crunchyroll.com/library/Site_Rules has the basics and extended rules in a spoiler at the bottom to review if needed, and the rules apply to livestreams just as much as any portion of the site.

The mods will often try to warn people about rules violations in the chat stream itself to avoid even handing out the bans (we don't like to ban!), but those messages can be quickly lost during peak times - we realize that, and try to be flexible in part because of it when possible.

These bans are only for livestream chats, and do not impact the rest of the site usage, including the forums. However, they last forever, so getting banned from one convention's livestream will continue forward until you talk with a mod about getting unbanned. As a reminder, alt accounts are strictly against the rules, and I've seen people generate new ones after an old one was chat banned - that will result in account bans or deletions, not just a ban in the chat, so please don't do it! We'd much prefer to talk about an unban over a chat infraction!

I hope that clears up some of the confusion. As always, free free to PM me about a chat ban, and I'll see about getting anyone back in ASAP.

More options for notification is something I have been pushing for since we started using the livestream. For the time being the best everyone can do is abide by the site rules. Mods currently have trouble giving any kind of warning or notice to users at all, as our messages are just spammed off the chat log when the stream is busy, and don't stand out at all.

We only ban to ease up the load on the livestream (when someone is needlessly spamming or being inappropiate). Hopefully soon we can give everyone more clarity on the do's and don't when using the livestream, so that bans won't be as necessary.

The video is up! Still early, though, the con is in California so not many people are around yet at 9am local.

Since we're streaming from Katsucon, I wanted to bump this topic. Please, mind the rules in the livestream chat, it's still part of Crunchyroll!

Thanks!

Appreciate it, you should be unbanned now.

Also, folks, please be sure to PM me or another mod if you've discovered that you've been livestream banned and want it lifted, that way we'll know you're around. If you just post in here, it might not be seen for a while.

EDIT:

Okay, since I'm seeing a lot of this today, please:
Don't post phone numbers to the stream
Don't post random gibberish ASCII characters that mess up the stream
Don't ask people to show their pantsu, or what color they are
Don't ask for people's three sizes
