Is anyone here a mod for the gear page? I got banned and I have no idea why. I’ve broken no rules that I’m aware of and I’m even a paying member to upload pics and use the emporium. I didn’t receive an email or anything. Weird.

It’s time to reflect.

Maybe this will teach you not to say "coil tap" when you mean "coil split", you racist.

A one week suspension?
I just got back from one of those. Also in my case totally unexpected and completely bogus in my opinion. I've had luck contacting the mods via the contact link on the page to find out why they took the action they did.

I don't post there very much, if at all anymore. Mostly because I can't post photos or images there from my phone, and that's the only place I post images from.

They seem like a sensitive bunch. I was reading a thread about “songs that didn’t age well” and I am amazed at how hard it is for some people not to be a wiener...

Don't worry, that's normal.
They interpret their own rules in an erratic way. It makes a big difference if you are an average member or one of the inner circle.
If you ask a mod you will likely be ignored, or treated like a bad child.

Just ignore them and enjoy this friendly forum here.

TDPRI is more interesting. I’ve been suspended here though. One I understood, the other was puzzling.
I suppose the mods have to maintain some sort of order.
Over at Steve Hoffman, the rules state that merely criticizing the moderators can get you permanently banned.

I go on there because there can be good knowledge but man, I can't stand most the people there. Very rude, sarcastic and intolerant of other peoples opinions.

TDPRI and GretschTalk, you guys and gals are very friendly and easy going.

You probably spelled Squire instead of Squier, that’s a touchy subject over there.
Hoffman I hear use to teach 7th grade English, a run on sentence can get you banned for a year.
Keep in mind, any if this could be true.

You probably expressed a negative opinion about a band that one of the moderators likes.

TGP is a fun place to lurk around once you understand who to ignore. Lots of them with crazy amount of posts are in fact just bedroom players thinking they are guitar gods and their opinions are definitive.
