Staff Contact Section

    A lot of people have either misunderstood what the staff contact forum is for or are blatantly disregarding it, so I'm going to make this clear.

    This forum is NOT for:
    -Game help
    -Help with figuring out something on the forum
    -Pointing out something with the website
    -Messages to one specific moderator (unless you are banned)
    -many other things

    This is ONLY for banned users to post questions about their bans or to messages that the entire staff needs to see. If it is for one specific mod or a small group of mods (i.e. for one section), PM them. If it is for site stuff PM Serebii because none of the rest of us deal with that. If it is for game help, go to that specific game's section. If it is for forum help, go to Newbie Lounge. If I see more of these threads I might start deleting them. Stop misusing it because it's really annoying for all of us to have to go through stuff that isn't what we're here for.

    Also, if you are banned posting a thread DO NOT FORGET TO POST YOUR EMAIL!!!!!! If you don't we have no way to contact you back since you can't read pm's or anything while your account is banned. It's completely pointless to post a thread if you're not going to include a method for us to contact you back.

    A similar announcement is also posted in the staff contact forum itself for a month incase you somehow forget.

    I'm going to leave this thread open for now to allow for questions + so people don't automatically ignore it because it's a closed thread, but don't spam here or you will be infracted and you will be sad. Thx.

    I remember reading somewhere or asking a mod that we could also report spam bots (granted they haven't posted first). Sometimes recognizing a spam bot is as easy as looking at their signature. I guess we could VM/PM an SMod+, but that's only one. Is this acceptable?

    Yes, you can use it to report spambots. Just keep all your posts into one thread, don't worry about double posting in that thread if its sole purpose is reporting adbot accounts.

    Also, if you're a banned member using staff contact, don't forget to leave your e-mail. If you don't, there's no way for us to contact you, and you won't be able to see any of the replies that you'll get in your thread because you'll be a guest.

    ^good point, added to the first post since a lot of people seem to forget that.

    and yeah, adbots are fine. i was more referring to people who post threads for things that are for one specific moderator or section. adbots affect the whole forum so that is fine to post in there.

    Chapter hello, im back sorta

    What about an infraction? Can we ask about that here?

    infractions shouldnt be asked there. for infractions you should first ask the mod who gave it to you. if they dont reply or you dont like their answer, you can take it to someone higher (if it is a mod, ask a smod, if it is a smod, ask an admin, if it is an admin, ask serebii), preferably one who frequents the section where you received the infraction. keep in mind that infractions are rarely reversed and you can usually find out what you did wrong by re-reading the general rules, the rules of that section, and possibly the first post in that section.
