I was in the non-wifi chat last night and I pasted in a link from a thread in the forums. I have always been under the impression that serebii-specific links were okay, and the kick scripts wouldn't boot ya for 'em. :p Well, this one did.

Note that I'm not upset, and I'm not being belligerent about this, lol. I don't mind a five minute kickban. (Even though the internet is like, my whole life, and that I languished and gnashed my teeth while I was banned. Omg!) :p

The only reason I bring it up is for clarity's sake. I want to know for sure if it's all Serebii-specific links, if it's just the forums, or if it might be some other exception I was unaware of. :p Thanks for reading guys! And thanks for patrolling the chats and booting the harassing ones, lol.

Ok. You got killed by a script. Probably either Serebii's or Greg's. Sometimes the one of the scripts kicks you for posting a SPPf link, and sometimes it doesn't. But posting SPP and SPPf link doesn't count as advertising.

My script has protections stopping those links getting banned. I'll talk to greg

This is probably a point of significance. The link I posted was one that I had just posted on the forums. So it had a notably different format than normal links. Here's an example (but not THE specific example) I'm talking about:

See the specific php parameters in there? Maybe it just kicks on those kinds of links; I don't know. :p But I thought I'd let you know in case it's any help.

There's a chance it may have been my SPPScript clone Britney_Spears.. don't know why it's not protecting SPP/SPPf...

I'll talk to Greg and see if he can copy paste the protections script to me, in case something messed up.

It's only a five minute ban, and I was in the middle of playing my game anyway. :P I just wanted to bring it up in case it was an error, or in case there were new restrictions I hadn't read about, lol.

Thanks for taking it (and me) seriously. :p With all the "omg, I wuz bannedzorz unfairlies!" threads, I didn't expect to see much of a response, lol.
