This is the thread we use to talk things over with people who received a suspension notice. A lot of the time the notice goes out just so we can explain how seriously we take certain things, not because we want the person to feel bad and go away.

For a fun site, we're pretty fussy about stuff like grammar and spelling, for example. More than you would expect, considering that we do want the funny. Everything is better with the funny.

Leave a note here indicating you want to talk the suspension over, then hang in there for a bit. A moderator will be along to talk to you about the situation.

NOTE: If you see another banned person post something that you want to comment on, don't. This thread is for discussion between banned people and Mods - no third parties invited.

While you're at it, browse What to Do If You Are Suspended.

Okay, okay, I get what I did wrong, and I'm really sorry. Can I please have editing privileges back? It's really all I ever do here. I promise I'll do better. Pretty please with a cherry on top?

So, Nate's tale of persecution at the hands of the TV Tropes moderation team is legendary in the world, now? This famous fifteen year old is recruiting people to come here and try to get articles that he has vandalized unlocked so he can vandalize them again? I'm afraid that I remain dubious. I think that it's far more likely that Nate-san has figured out open proxies than that some person who professes not to be him (when we didn't accuse him of it) comes on and asks for Rip Haywire to be unlocked without saying why.

We may have a contender for Most Transparent Evasion. Maybe. Still a contender: "My brother snuck into my room and did it."

Fast Eddie: I'm not him.

Fighteer: He's not vandalizing that article, he was just protecting it.

Hmmmm..."protecting" would be an odd choice of words for his actions, considering that his edits to that page consisted, for the most part, of violations of Example Indentation; adding a Trivia trope to the page, which is never kosher; and removing proper punctuation and title formatting. Methinks that counts more as vandalism than anything, wouldn't you say?

You self-declared as a member of the Nate Spidgewood fan club.

If I had known he was such a vandal, I would never have accepted his requests.

Further I do not consider myself a fan. I thought he was sincere.

I apologize for whatever misunderstanding there has been.

We are truly sick of fighting a narcissistic teenager and now, apparently, his cadre of hangers-on. I'm not in the mood to be favorable to you. You might consider this a warning to look before you leap.

How is his project to make a film about his life going, anyway? All fifteen years of it.

I have apologized for any misunderstanding.

I would like to edit again, if I may.

The only reason why I did replaced some of the Japanese and English voice actors for Sengoku Basara in case Gakuen Basara ever became an anime was because they sound much better, and plus some of the English voice actors (Travis Willingham, Laura Bailey, and Troy Baker) hardly work for Funimation anymore. If you ask me, Micah Solusod would be a way better Yukimura.

So you're substituting fact for your personal opinion then. That's not going to fly.

kotaro, not only were you adding false information, but apparently you've been bugging other tropers by sending them natterfy messages when they clean up your messes.

I'm sorry, but you appear to have no concept of what a wiki is used for. Your ban will not be removed.


@R.G. and CartoonFanASDF: Under our standard administrative policy, helping someone evade a ban by posting or editing on their behalf is subject to being permanently banned yourself. Given the hassle that Nate has made for us and the impossibility of knowing if you're telling the truth, I am exercising zero tolerance in this case. Spread the word among his little fanclub.

Before I issue a final judgment, what happened to your other handle, RG? Why are you using this one instead?

Every time I try to edit under my own handle (R.G.), it somehow switches to RG, then I have to switch back. The whole thing is beyond my control. Believe me, this is NOT a second handle. I would LOVE it if I could edit under MY handle, which is R.G.

If anyone can offer any solutions, I would like to know.

Could be a cookies issue. We've had trouble in the past with people editing who have punctuation in their handles, but that's supposed to have been fixed. Try deleting your tvtropes.org cookies and logging in again.

I'll remove your suspension on condition that you steer clear of Nate and anything he is involved with, with respect to TVT at least. There will be no tolerance for a repeat of this, and anyone else pulling the same shenanigans will not get a second chance.

Can i ask why i was had my editing privilege taken away?

A mix of Example Indentation problems, creating Sink Holes and misuse of Bold Inflation.

Feb 19th 2013 at 9:20:05 AM

All right, looking back ive been responsible of that. Is there any chance this could be reversed in the future? I can understand maybe a 2-3 week suspension, but if i can avoid making this happen again in the future, could i get my privilege back at some point?

Checking back at my edits, I think it was the Wreck-It Ralph edit that got me suspended. The %%s I removed, I thought they had no longer a reason for them to be there, since I thought I gave them a good context.

I don't think this warranted a suspension, a warning via PM would have been just fine.

Can my suspension be removed, please!
