Friendship2468 unban day

8 years ago on this day, @friendship2468 was banned from the Hopscotch forum. This was the first time a very active user was banned.
In 2016, 8 years from then felt like forever, but the day has finally come!
Friendship2468 was unbanned!

Back in 2016, the Hopscotch forum was a very different place. The most active topics were not related to coding. Many users chatted in general topics and the “Drawing on iPad Compared to Paper” topic.

I have not been active on The Hopscotch forum in a long time and clearly things have changed a lot since then. I hope everyone is doing well!

Mods and tht knows Im here. That’s why my trust Ievel was locked for a year.

I did my crimes many-a years ago… much like friendship here (who honestly was banned for something thay people do so often now lol. Back in the days where even linking a Scratch account was suspect to being banned ← that’s not why I got banned tho… originally)

2019 was the year I was banned originally I think, so 5 years ago.
Then I can’t quite recall when the others got banned, it doesn’t help that those have either been anoned or deleted but either way it’s exciting to see someone actually finish their banishment sentence!

That depends if it’s a ban or a suspension. If it’s a suspension, there’s the orange text that tells you when you’re unsuspended, and iirc, until then you can’t log in (and my memory is fuzzy, but I think when you try to log in it tells you that you’re suspended).

But I can confirm it lets you back in when your time is over. Though historically suspensions like that were a year or a month or so and not 8 years (crazy to think as long as I’ve been here that actually happened before I joined but I’m still old enough to be familiar enough with it that when the calendar turned to 2024, I told myself it was the year friendship could come lol).

An actual ban is like an anon (as you are familiar with seeing with the 2019 stuff), typically done upon user request or when a user has repeatedly broken the guidelines and seems like they will continue in that pattern. There are also ip bans but I don’t know if those are permanent or not.

Anyways, always nice to see older users come back for a visit or just come back in general. @RobotPro, definitely has been awhile (I’m formerly sophia71205), so if you need any help getting around, feel free to tag me (though my own activity has been less lately).

Lastly, do remember

I was just using an example of CoF which is what friendship was suspended for. Not speculation, it literally said in their bio the cause of suspension.

A weird case of a ban is my own with kayro. The account is not anoned but no longer states a date when unban would occur. Originally I think it said 203* (*for unknown numeral) but now it doesnt say anything.

OH
MY GO D
.

honestly i wasn’t even thinking about returning to the forum anytime soon but this blew my mind for real

i remember the exact moment they were banned and it felt somewhat close to a ‘life sentence’ on the forum

has it really been that long?
