I was a member of a different parenting forum, I was a member for 3 years, recently I wanted to ask a question about something personal so wanted to be anonymous as my screen name was identifiable, anyway I was banned for having more than one account (seen many people do what I did so didn't realise it was such a huge issue) anyway I have tried to sign back up again and it won't let me, even after changing my ip address, I've tried to sign up using my iPad instead of phone still won't allow it, I've cleared cookies used different emails and screen names and nothing also used wifi in Starbucks and tesco, I am banned instantly again, how are they tracking me! Any ideas what I can do! Feels really harsh I was permanently banned

Are you using a different (made-up) name when signing up if that's required information? Or similar?

Spudthecat Tue 04-Jul-17 16:13:46

Yeh at first I wasn't but I've tried another name and still blocked

RaspberryBeretHoopla Tue 04-Jul-17 16:16:23

Hmmmmm. Curiouser and curiouser. I would like to know how they are banning you as well! Get a friend to try to set up an account for you?

Sod them, and ask your question here?

They sound petty.

But I agree, also very intriguing as to how that's being done. Anyone?

I do use this site aswell but it's so busy whereas the other site is abit slower so not as difficult to catch up with, I was out today in tescos as isaid who have free wifi so I cleared cookies connected to the wifi used a completely random email address with a different name and was blocked instantly

Ask them?

This is obviously netmums grin and probably fucking chelle that banned you too.

I moved over here after getting a ban, so much better over here.

You're not allowed an opinion on NM, it's like North Korea over there. Welcome to the free world op grin

😂😂😂love it

I'm permanently banned forever and ever . Thanks chelle 👋🏻

Have much more fun here and no major dictators here. The mods were no fun over there , had no sense of humour and if you called someone a muppet it was a months ban .

Stay and have fun here

If they're North Korea, I think we must be California, right? Somewhere wild and wacky. And louche.

Given the problems MNHQ have with banned people coming back, perhaps they should ask how the other site manages it.

If you logged into the old account on multiple devices they linked you to those via IP/Mac Address's/Browser/email, ect.

They've probably blocked your IP range too.

Change Mac address/IP/browser & email you'll be able to sign up.

I'm banned from NM for disliking the name "Savannah"... They're strict as fuck over there.

CoarseConcepts Tue 04-Jul-17 17:01:23

I suspect it's the MAC that's banned.

Spudthecat Tue 04-Jul-17 17:09:33

Yes it is netmums wasn't sure if I could mention it since they don't seem to like mumsnet mentioned over there!

Awwlookatmybabyspider Tue 04-Jul-17 17:10:44

Banned for not liking the name Savannah. confused.
They really do need to venture out more. A lot more.

Change your email address to see if that works. Have you emailed them asking for an explanation?

HorridHenryrule Tue 04-Jul-17 17:35:55

Maybe they can set you back up again.
