So like, i see its a new thing so i go on it. It has a chatroom everything is all nice. It wasnt showing anything. I scrolled down to see if there where rules or something, which it didnt seem like they were. I thought "i shouldnt say swears for the best of it" I type Hello. My text flys across the screen. The texts coming up where all about how the capture crashed or something, so i just play along and type "Thats all folks". Then someone bans me. I dont know why. I dont know what i did. Atleast if people can ban, there has to be a reason stated. Not just saying your banned. I would also like to know why i was banned for chatting.

Your name perhaps?

I honestly couldn't say, seems strange though.

You were saying peace out. Best ending ever.

Here are the rules, which are linked on the /live page.

If you posted in all caps, that would have been the cause of your ban. From what I've heard, there should be a message/notification stating who issued the ban, in which case, you can reach out to them to learn more details. Since I don't think a ban can be lifted while livestreams aren't active, the mods will need to wait for the next event to lift the ban.

I think that when you are banned on CR chat is permanent ban. Support says that a mod have to unban people in this case.
I am in the same train here, i was supposed to be un-banned on long time ago.

Sorry about that. Not sure if the mod who banned you has been in touch with you to clarify the reason for the ban, but I'm adding you to the list of folks to be unbanned at the start of the next livestream (not sure yet when that will be) but feel free to PM me at the start of the next livestream to remind me in case it falls through the cracks. I think in both cases this had something to do with being rude regarding CR staff who were at the con.

One problem with livestream is that since it's just a bunch of short comments, remarks you intended just as a bit of a light joke or something can sound like nasty and mean heckling, so please be extra aware of that when commenting and consider how what you are about to type could sound to others who see it move by quickly on a rowdy chat screen. (beeisgay, your username isn't doing you any favors in this regard since one of our well-known staff who is frequently at cons is SailorBee, so that could make your comments look extra-suspect.)

Site rules apply to livestream too, and sounding respectful toward both users and the folks on the other side of the screen is really important. Some guidelines that are especially meant for the Livestream are available at /library/Livestream_Chat_Rules. There's also a link to them at the bottom of the Livestream page in the "Stream Data" section that shows the start and end times of the con:

Yeah, sounds like it was a misunderstanding. We hadn't seen you before and you had the bad luck to show up with that name (which is perfectly fine on its own) right when someone was calling one of our beloved staff folks a b****...so got mistaken for a troll. Sorry about that, but glad that we got it straightened out.

In livestream, all we see is your name and your comments; we can't tell if you are premium, on a trial account or guest pass, signed up today or two years ago. If things are slow we can go look at your profile, but sometimes we don't have the opportunity. I think that con was particularly weird and crazy and we were short on mods so Kark ended up stuck covering it solo a lot of the time.
