The PokeGym FAQ

Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.

If X is so bad, why don't you put it in the board censor?

The board censor is there for blatant and frequent violations of our inappropriate language policy. Abbreviations, mispellings and partially blanked out variants of a censored word are not something we are going to spend our time hunting down. Keeping them out of your posts is your responsibilty. If a moderator gives you an infraction for evading the censor or inappropriate language, you will be making more work for that mod by arguing your words should be in the censor. Making work for the mods is not good.

My Ban was supposed to be over now, but I'm still locked out.

There are a few reasons for this:
1) If you receive a 3 day ban at a minute to midnight on day 0, then your ban will be up no sooner than a minute to midnight on day 3 (not when you wake up on day 3, not 72 hours from when you made the post that got you banned).
2) A job runs at certain intervals (an hour, 2, 6?) that does a lot of housekeeping, including un-banning. So, in the case above, if the job runs at 6 hour intervals and that interval passed at an hour to midnight on day 3, then that ban will not expire until 5 hours into day 4.
3) You have an expired email address and didn't get the notice of the exact timing of your ban, so, you are guessing wrong as to when you will be unbanned.
No one has ever been manually 'unbanned' for the reason, "my ban is over but I'm still locked out", nor has anyone's Ban timer ever stopped or broken. Will people who are banned ever read this? Maybe. Will staff ever respond to this concern? It has been addressed once here, but probably not again. The point is, post in accordance with The Rules, and you won't get banned.
