So I wanted to introduce my friend to this forums, but when he tried making an account he didnt realize he was using a vpn and therefore he was unable to make an account, this happened in somewhere around January/February. I just told him to wait for some time, thinking the ban would be lifted after some time, but it still hasn't lifted. Is it possible for him to make an account now? If yes then how?


NOTE: He is no longer using a VPN
i was gonna use some cool ascii art but that doesnt work on signatures so rip

Look, VPN and proxy use is not technically against the rules.
The issue is if your IP from the VPN/proxy gets mixed up with IPs already registered on the site.The bot (Cuddles) picks them up and usually it's an insta ban,no questions asked.

Therefore,if it's a personal VPN,sure go ahead.
If not, then you risk the account's well being.

Personally I think there would be no issue if your friend made an appeal to request it from the banned account.

Ask him to make a ban appeal, we'll look into it.
