Yes, it happened to me, and I had no idea what TOS I violated, that is until i went to my email and found a letter there from them and found out that I gave out my yahoo screen name. Geez, I was mad, but now I know better!

I hope you find out why you were suspended, but know this, it Sucks! Good luck, Mate!

All chat is filtered to look for key words or phrases, and if flagged then lines of the chat are then sent to D for review.

If found to be in voiolation, you recieve a 72 hour ban for breaking the POTCO Terms of Agrement.

As always, as it is a childrens rated game E10+, one must be careful in typing in information (and there are enough current posts ongoing discussing this topic in detail around POF so I won't get into the whole Adult/child thing - this is just to answer the question posted )

I got a warning letter, but never banned/suspended (knock on wood). It had my words from a whisper chat I was doing with one of my friends.

Come to think of it... I would freak out if I got banned/suspended. My character Ella Spizwackle should hit the big 40 some time tonight or tomorrow and if I lost her it would not be a good thing at all!

Yeah, they do monitor conversations. They sent me a warning, but I didn't get banned. It wasn't really bad though so they shouldn't put a hold to my account.

I got suspended for a day with NO explanation, email or anything. Just when I tried to sign on was told I couldn't sign in again until a certain time and had to re-agree to the rules. Talk about withdrawals.

Part of the house rules are that they can suspend or even teriminate your account without even telling you. If youre not getting a message, (which you should) there could be a few reasons why:
-Do you have a parental account? if you do, it will be e-malied to your parents the suspension/termination reason
-Make sure you dont have Disney as spam, some people get tired of getting Disney stuff, so they mark it as spam.

Sometimes you get a warning that you are in risk of getting suspended, but it depends how far you take it...
Just think, its a Disney game, so when you talk, act like youre talking to a 6 or 7 year old, cause you never know, they could be 6 or 7

Understand the need for the resrtictions but I wasn't even doing anything that I'm aware of. However a friend that was talking to me did give me some personal info. He ended up with 3 days. Just wish they would have explained why, cause until he came back on I was in the dark. I know this game is geared in part to kids, that's why Im here. (just a kid at heart lol)

Andrew, be prepared...when you call that number, you will be scolded like a two year old. (never had to call myself, but I have friends that have, and they say the voice on the other end can be pretty CONDISCENDING) Breathe deep, and just say "yes, i understand i was naughty, Yes, I DO agree to the tos, and Yes, i will be a good boy from now on" and then of course, be a good boy from now on

When out guild was max for a long time, daily our members were getting banned.

Main reasons were for giving out out guild site. This a separate site for guild members, and couldn't be listed here. The second reason for a lot of the ban's was members giving out ventrilo info. We were told the guild site was fine, but at that time even the next day another ban for guild site info.

Eventually ventrilo info was put on guild site, and one reason we didn't want it here on these boards, with everyone in the world popping in on vent as a guess.

This game went back and forth for a number of months, and even when some would win their appeal, a day later they would be suspended from something they searched back several months and found.

So, never give out email, and sites and that covers most suspensions I saw. Though now and then a few would pop up with personal info given away.

So convert, make a limited account, go to it and talk, then go back to your unlimited and play for awhile.

Wonder why some people end up solo, just don't get it, lol.

Phone ins heard both ways, were real nice and a real pain both. Just watch what they say, one will say something like listing guild site is fine, while next day your back on the phone, and that guy says its not. If me I think I would record conversations if some of these things are going both ways.
