Banned!??!
« on: March 29, 2015, 05:59:32 PM »
 Have any of you guys been banned from a postloop forum? Wonder what the criteria is for being banned?


  Mods please feel free to move this if necessary. I couldn't seem to post it where it needed to go. THX

I haven't ever been banned but in one case, I spent time talking to a mod and we mutually agreed that I would drop the forum.  I was a newbie on the forum topic and genuinely interested but they really wanted experts.  I've also dropped forums because the owner/mod was sending me lists of keyword topics to cover in my posts and things to write about and postloop isn't paying me well enough for that.

I was banned from a forum in my first week. It was a forum which asked you to write reviews of various make money at home affiiliate marketing schemes. Apparently my reviews were not positive enough, which leads me to think that the forum owner was doing something to monetize all the reviews that people had written.

I also got a warning for necroposting once although I hadn't noticed that the thread I had replied to was old.

I got banned when I was new to PL as well. I thought "no off topic posts" meant not straying from the topic, I didn't know that it meant the off topic section of the forum. I got a 1 rating for that too. The admin never replied when I contacted him. I even posted again in his forum even if I don't earn points to compensate for the mistake. He never changed his rating.

Wow that forum owner sounds like a mega douche. I sincerely hope you're no longe subscribed there? Man, it's these things that kinda piss me off about PL. Ryan seems very adamant about his rating system and he even says to EXPECT bad unreasonable ratings once in a while. That's crappy

When you say banned, you mean revoked? I guess it depends on the forum owner, some are reasonable and some have specific criteria. It doesn't foster good relations though, if someone was abusive or writing unhelpful comments after being warned then it's best to ban them, but some admins just ban people if they don't follow their rules, which they may have changed.

Sending keywords to use?!?!  Look, I've seen the point package price and a know a bit about how much a point is worth.  Depending on what country the forum owner is in, THAT type of work is definitely not worth it.  And honestly, I don't think it's worth it in ANY country. That's so uncool.  PLUS, telling people what to post?  talk about letting the forum grow "organically".   >:(

Yep, I was banned a couple of times. One, because I missed the forum requirements, other because the forum owner changed his mind and most people at the time got banned.

I have been banned from a couple of different sites since I started using Postloop. In one case, I signed up for an account with a forum and then left on a trip for a couple of days and did not have a chance to upload an avatar or make any posts. Next thing I know, I was banned from that site. There were a couple of others that I am not clear why I was banned from them because I only made a post or 2 and had not communication with the admin. If they are going to go as far as to ban someone from their site, they should at least comment on why so the person would know. I do not sweat it though and just move on to the next forum,

I totally agree. I've only been banned from 1 forum and it's incredibly hard not to get pissed off at the forum owner. I followed the rules they gave TO THE LETTER and tried to submit some good content for the site. Few days later, they banned me for no reason. I tried to contact that person but no reply came. I'm just glad that I hadn't made the required 5 posts so that they could rate me.

Can I ask what happens? Do they send a message or does it come up on your dashboard?

It seems a bit mean to ban someone before even 5 posts, but maybe that was better as then you're not wasting your time.

So sorry to hear that, and I hope somehow it can be reversed for you as of now you are out of another making money site. It has become so much harder now to earn online and to actually get paid for the time you put in.

I've never personally been banned, but I have been a part of a forum that became banned! That really sucked because it was the forum I was using the most, but thankfully since then I have found a bunch of other forums that I use much more.

For PostLoop, a forum owner can ban you from their forum for any reason whatsoever, no matter what you've done or how good your posts have been up to that point. Bans typically happen to users that are posting spam or have posted low quality content that doesn't meet the forum owner's specifications. Chances are high that you deserve a ban if you receive one, because they'll often resort to a low rating before outright banning you. That means that you've done something particularly egregious that the forum owner finds unacceptable.

I definitely dropped the forums that were sending the keyword lists and super-specific instructions.  All of those forums were actually owned/run by the same person.  I know not to even bother signing up for their forums in the future too. 

I let fiverr users get that specific...but I only do 20 posts for a gig there.  AND I make them order a gig extra if they want to give me specific keywords or phrases to hit.
