I just joined. I am a member of epi, but thats not why im joining. I was curious if anyone has had problems with deviantart? I have been banned and i havent a clue why, as i had not visited the site in a while then i go to log in and it tells me i have been banned.. now i cant find anyway to email people to question why or what i s going on, as you have to be a member to get that info!
Has anyone else experienced this?

Welcome to our little group Gothling. And yes I know exactly what you are talking about because the same thing happened to me also. It seems they had a person hack into their system recently before the Christmas holidays began and caused numerous persons to be labeled banned for no reason along with other problems. While the admins of DA say it is being taken care of, they also say it will take "X" amount of time to resolve. In my case it was just faster and easier for me to make a new account and later when the problem is resolved I will delete the older account.

This problem with accessing admin and getting a timely response back is one of the few problems I have with DA. It can be very frustrating trying to get answers for any problem when you can't access the proper areas I agree.

Re: Welcome

Thank you! Well im glad to know im not alone, it was just very confusing after a month - two months of not visiting the site I find out i was banned! Oh well, i guess i will have to wait it out. I tried to create a new account to email them, however since i am on dsl it said my IP was the same as the one banned?

Well, the funny thing is I just tried to log in and it let me. It has been about 2-3 weeks since i got told I was banned but am allowed in now. Oh well, either way that isnt very helpful to not be able to contact them if you can't get in. Thanks for replying to those that did!

That's good to hear! You were probably just a victim of a mass IP ban...they are really trying to cut down on those.
