About a week or 2 ago, I PM'd several mods requesting an unbanning to allow me to participate in the 4th UGVG album. I've contributed to every album so far, even created the art for the first, and helped create the third cover-art.
I was banned several months ago because I requested to be banned to focus on some projects (namely getting into a fitness routine and working on my album). I'm halfway done writing the album, and have so far lost 22lbs. I'm in a routine, I am no longer distracted by UG. I can still read the forums, but I am unable to look at the forums whilst logged in.
The way I asked to be banned may have been a little stupid and dramatic (I posted the pear in Le Pit to learn that it was no longer a bannable offence. I ended up with essentially a spam thread where I looked like a massive tool.) I was told to PM a mod, I did so and I got my wish.
I'd like to note here, I specifically asked to be banned for a short period of time (around 30 days) to get some work done. I've now been unable to log in for nearly 6 months.
I PMd Carmel (being the obvious authority on the site) asking to be unbanned. I didn't get a reply. I sent another PM a week or 2 later. No reply. Another week or so after that I sent a PM to element4433 requesting the unban, explaining that I requested a ban and I wanted to contribute to UGVG4.
I got a reply.
I haven't heard back since.
It looks like the mods don't think I deserve to contribute to the sites projects. Really wish I could be part, but alas I haven't the power.
Looks like this is it for you and me, UG. Maybe one day I'll allowed to return.
