My account got banned for 14 days for "Insubstantial posts+sig ad"

What does this mean? I thought sig ads were legal?

Please tell me so I won't make this mistake again.

Insubstantial posts is nice for "shit posts".

If you post plenty of useless, low value one liners while selling your signature you are likely to get banned for spamming. The same applies for those who dont sell their signature, but they usually spam less.

If you link your profile I am sure I can give you an example and how this could be avoided in the future.

hmmm, I don't remember posting any shit posts, though I could be wrong. I will link to my profile in a second, is it better to PM you, or just post the account here?

I do remember posting small sentences here and there, but I'm not sure if they are rubbish

Ill just post my answer here anyway, no need to do the PM dance.

Its usually not that you are intentionally posting "shit" and the first ban is considered a warning.

How could you have gotten banned again? Your OP is from November 10th, and it says you were banned for 14 days. It is now 4 days later, which would mean you still have 10 days left on your original ban

why are you so eager to be in here? you must ask yourself this. what are your motives? you may think you appear innocuous enough, but just firing off inconsequential posts all over the place makes you look like you are merely trying to pad your status and promote your sig.

its good to be honest with yourself because everyone else sees the same thing. There's nothing "illegal" with sig campaigns, just make a little effort to be part of the conversation. If you cant find anything valuable to say, hang out in "Begginers & Help" there are plenty of newbies in there that could use your assistance for real btc-related problems and inquiries, and you can get your posts done while actually contributing to the community. You never know, you may help some n00b that will one day remember and send some favour your way  Wink

Another thing to consider is, if your posts are just repeating what other people in the thread are saying, it shows that you're just trying to get your post count up. If you're restating what other members have already stated, I would still consider it to be a pointless post. Try looking at other people's replies to the thread as well, maybe?

Post your name here. People can make their own minds up whether you were spamming or not. Was it Iamyourdad by any chance?

If this was the case then he has a good number of two sentence posts (hence his claim of having more "useful" posts then he did before) on the first page of his post history; although there are also a good number of less then one sentence posts as well.

Yeah + that account was necrobumping off-topic threads. Adding a few extra words onto a pointless sentence doesn't magically make them constructive either though.

When accounts are banned, do other moderators get to see evidence for the ban, or is it listed as just a reason? Just curious

Only if someone posts a request with the reasons publicly in the admin forum which is what usually happens, but regular mods can't see banned on their profile or anything.

It might as well be there as someone could easily check the modlog and search their "U#" and could find out they are banned.

I think bans should be publicly stated on a persons profile anyway. Would make sense and hopefully cause less confusion and questions.
