me and my friend were laying a server, we killed everyone we saw and stole their stuff and then the admins tried to kill us, failed. . . then i destroyed my own house which i made .. and then i get ban while my friend roamed around using tnt on all houses and got banned when everything was destroyed. why use pvp in a serv when you're not allowed to kill anyone xD?
And lol, i was once on a factions server, raided the admins and then got banned. They had more power than land.... Pfft
I was playing on a random server and we were creating a huge TNT bomb, literally laying TNT from the bedrock all the way to the surface for miles, I accidentally hit one of the TNT with a flint and steel after accidentally switching over from TNT and blew the entire thing up way before it was finished.
Okay, perhaps I deserved the ban on this occasion.
What is the stupidest reason you or someone else has been banned?
I have two that could qualify.
One server I was mod on for about 2 months, highest level.
I stopped playing, and stayed active on the forums. One time I come on, and reminisce about when I was previously mod, and how the server started, and the owner/admin came on, typing a message every 2-3 seconds, quicker than I could respond. I am a fast typer, but he was way faster than I. He yelled at me for like 5 minutes for daring being on his server and talking to the mods about the fact that I used to be a mod, then when I tried to defend myself, I got banned for "Come back when you have a better attitude." I then got banned off his skype, forums, and the server. I have no way of getting back anyway, genious, huh? Mostly, I got banned for inactivity on the server, but being active on the forums.
The other server I got banned for correcting a mod's grammar. Can you believe it?
He said greif, and I said it is grief, "I before E except after C", next morning I was ip banned, also on the forums, so no chance of appeal, the mod who banned me also blocking me on skype.
I used to be his friend, but got banned over grammar? That is pretty sad, I was joking around at the time, talking to his alt account, who wasn't even a mod.
Anyone else have stupid bans to share?
I mean, I have gotten banned off many servers, but I get banned purposely a lot. I have one main I play, where I am a highest mod on, but those two were unfair bans, that are impossible to appeal.
I actually don't find them to be unfair at all, I mean - if you get a position as a mod and then you just don't give a crap about it but still hang out in the forums, the other mods will get annoyed. Especially since you were talking about being a mod before when you finally logged on.
And about correcting the grammar - It sounds like you got annoyed by a simple typo, and I'm sure that wasn't the first time and they finally got fed up You know, you can get banned if people just get sick of your attitude and considering you even have two accounts, and one of them is used in a way which gets you banned from several servers. Well... to be honest, you don't seem like someone who's got the best attitude around
So no, I don't consider those to be unfair at all, sorry. However, there is obviously some people here that got banned for very unfair reasons indeed
I never play on servers. do you have any good servers?
I do... Looks in sig...
On topic: The Ban Hammer Has spoken. Well I was saying how this guy called the founder doesnt know anything about plugins and shouldnt be staff. Then he goes in all out rage mode and bans me. Luckily the owner is nice and unbanned me.
My friend was keeping a sharp eye on the marketplace prices, and bought and sold very cleverly. He was earning thousands of dollars an hour (where people usually can get 1000 at most). As a result, he was banned for x-ray. However, there was never anything on the server which said that buying and selling large quantities at the "free market" was illegal.
One time i got banned on a server for 7 days because they said i made a 1x1 tower but someone else was being funny by making that tower in front of my door0.o And the admin wasnt even sure about it.. (About me building the tower while there was a block checker or something like that that if you click a block with a wooden axe you saw who placed it)
Not me but someone on a server I used to got play on got banned for breaking 3 pieces of tall grass NEAR spawn. Another got banned for pushing a player, and another for placing a single gravel block in someones field.
A bunch more people including 2 moderators were banned for calling the owner corrupt then the owner got annoyed so banned the majority of people off the server, even those not in any way involved.
Here are some images, they deleted most ban reports (But kept the players banned), presumably because people were complaining about it being unfair:
