A few months have passed since a friend of mine here in dA got banned... The worst part is that he has been framed for breaking the rules which he didn't actually do.

Currently the culprit has deactivated their account... But my friend is still banned for an indefinite amount of time. I'm not the only one who knows this, but here's my point: Is there a possibility that a banned dA account can be reactivated when given enough proof and witnesses (like screenshots, etc?)

Hopefully I don't break any rules... This is my first time I posted in the forums.

Why doesn't your friend just make a new account?

Not a good idea, man. He's been here twice. Banned with the same reason.

Have your friend appeal it. I had a ban reversed after somebody used my computer to make a bunch of accounts to harass somebody else on the site. I explained the situation as best I could and made a point to change the email attached to this account and the password(and all my other passwords!).

My first support ticket got lost, so I sent another one with the same contents after a month of nothing, and the ban was taken off on the condition that I would be re-banned if my IP showed suspicious activity again.

I wasn't mad at all because I can TOTALLY understand why they banned me. I blame myself for not being more vigilant of what this person was doing. They CLAIMED they used my computer to job search. Anyway, said guilty person is no longer allowed near my house.

DA doesn't accept screencaps of stuff as evidence, but I might be wrong and that might only be when reporting another deviant, so try it anyway. Try to be really concise when you write the support ticket because people have to rifle through several a day, and I don't know if they'll sit down to read something that's ten pages long.

I hope this can be fixed. Good luck!

Thanks... But in this case, there was a female dA user who blocked him, and the reason my friend got banned is because some troll used a slightly re-typed version of my friend's dA username and send a hate note to her, meaning that "suspected" user tried going around the block.

I know this because me, my friend and the female dA user who reported my friend all know each other. They got personal issues, but when we chatted via Skype we got news from her that she didn't had anything to do with this.

Yeaaaaaah, I think sharing that evidence with the staff might help. I think DA can track the IP of a username when it first signs up, but that might not matter if somebody uses a proxy. I don't really use them myself and am not quite sure how they work. :slow: But links to the banned friend and the fake username might shed some light on the error.

I hope it works out :heart:

Ask your banned friend to contact +help.

I would suggest you go to the help desk and try to appeal the ban. That's the best you can do right now.

Yeah, people have been banned and successfully appealed it plenty of times. It's not always easy though, and may take a while.

If your friend feels their ban was unfair then they need to contact the help desk on their own to appeal the ban.

I'm trying to wonder how on earth someone could be framed, outside of an account hijack!

Anyway, look around. Do we REALLY look like the right people to ask?

It happened to !famartist. Someone started breaking rules on another account and on their page wrote "moved to famartist" or something like that (since they hated famartist). So when that user was banned, famartist was banned for "ban evasion" and everything that other person had done, lol. But he ended up getting it appealed or whatever.

It's crazy they'd do that without doing some serious checking. But if he appealed successfully at least the system works.

There was a thread about it and I think there were a few people who didn't even believe he'd been framed because it seemed a bit absurd it'd be that easy to unfairly ban someone. But I think he didn't have a whole lot of trouble getting his account back, yeah.

Eh I was banned too, nothing anyone can do. I will be banned again and there's nothing anyone can do about it either. Get over yourself. :lol:
