Hi, I pay yearly for a subscription to crunchyroll because it's such an awesome website and streams a lot of my favourite anime. Unfortunately I cannot post or view words on the live stream.

This happened around 2-3 months ago but I figured; oh well I probably got banned for spamming... so it is my fault. I am starting to think my ban is permanent and am requesting that it be removed if that is possible.

I apologise, I will behave in future.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post
Have a good weekend
David.

I don't see a record of the ban, but if it happened a few months ago that's probably why. We can only unban while the livestream is live, so I've asked that the team monitoring the livestream tomorrow issue an unban at that time.

Most of what's prohibited during live bans should be pretty clear, but the most common one that folks tend to forget is the "ALL CAPS" rule. Regular and repeated use of messages entirely in uppercase will get you a ban, because not only is it, by internet convention, "yelling"--it makes the messages hard to read when lots of people are using nothing but capital letters.

[ETA: Now unbanned on livestream]

Just sent you a PM. You should be all set now.

The current set of rules are actually at /library/Livestream_Chat_Rules--there's a link to them from the livestream page.

I've just unbanned, you so you should be able to participate in future livestreams. This one went into effect during the livestream a couple of weeks ago, and while you did use all caps the ban was more specifically for requesting that cosplayers kiss.

It's fine if that's happening spontaneously between the cosplayers-- if they are doing it without requests and demands from us viewers. However, demands from the livestream chatters can appear rude and harrassing, and can make some of the cosplayers uncomfortable--especially when everyone is essentially YELLING at them to do this. We feel it is important to support policies regarding consent and cosplay. Cosplay is not consent for intimate interactions, therefore requests for hugs and kisses are against our livestream rules.

For the full livestream rules, and examples of behavior that is not allowed, please see /library/livestream_chat_rules
