If you got banned and you're not a spammer I apologize. We've been getting hit hard by spammers lately and sometimes good people get caught up in the anti-spam measures. What to do if this happens to you.

  • Don't contact your mod friend asking for help. They can only lift the ban, they cannot recover all your content that got deleted. If your account is unbanned we can't easily undo the whole action.
  • Don't create an alt account. That will make you look more like a spammer.
  • Do send an email to support@comicvine.com.

I just wrote a list of how to not get caught up but then realized I would be giving real spammers a playbook. Just think before you post content. Does this look at all spammy?

Sorry for the hassle.

i plan on getting banned, but for the most spectacular reason. Comicvine will never be the sameafter this event takes place and my legacy will live on after my banishment.
