    Possible to get un banned?

    Long story short I got myself perm banned from blizzard official forums and was wondering well since they are well known for their customer service and satisfaction I was wondering I may be able to talk to them to get myself un banned. My offences weren't serious just minor things but I guess their forums work on a simple 3 strikes system or something.

    Yes my fault for doing I know but help me out here...

    Nope. They gave you three chances to repent and you sinned three times. You must prove yourself responsible enough to regain the privilege of using the official fourms.

    No one here can really help you with this. I think it happens once in a while that they'll reverse themselves but is rare. You'll have to talk to them about it. For what it's worth being banned by Blizzard is something of a badge of honor with some. No idea why.
    If you have anything to contribute to a thread topic, please do so. Discussing moderation or calling out specific people is against the rules and makes a post liable for an infraction. Please report problem posts. If anyone is unclear about the rules please read our FAQ. Thanks.

    Prolly not but the official forums are terrible anyways. The atmosphere, the moderation, the trolls, everything is just shitty. You're ten times better on MMO-C or other fan sites.

    I asked nicely about a year and a half after getting a permaban and they reduced it to a "final warning".

    COULD IT BE!? A FELLOW MISCER! *bro fist* I got banned from WoW forums a long time ago, not even three warnings. Something about mentioning lesbian scissoring. At any rate, I raised the ire of the Commissariat and my thoughtcrime was promptly... corrected.

    EDIT: Crap just realized get big or die mirin didn't start the topic. So my bad OP for confusing you for a miscer.

    Judging by your sig I doubt it was minor. The forums are probably better off.
    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.

    So chances are you got banned for doing several stupid things. So why do you want to go back?

    Seems like you didnt contribute to much in the past, why not move on and just take up posting on a new site, it sucks to be banned but imo you lost your chance when you threw the other 2 chances away.

    Agreed. I have at least 3 WoW forum permabans on various defunct accounts. Made my first post in years today that wasn't "WTB $foo, contact me in game", and remembered why I used to post that way. The WoW forums are a toxic cesspool. The only official MMO forums I'd consider worse are AOC (if that game even still exists).
    The plural of anecdote is not "data".

    My permaban (and pretty much all bans) was lifted when they released the new bnet based forums. Just wait until they replace the current forum engine again
    ps: I was permabanned for "breaking the NDA", I'm cool Actually I was just copy pasting some leaked infos, they took it very seriously.

    Here's the thing-- they don't see your forum posting privileges as being required to enjoy the game. They're very willing to keep you off the forum if you prove that you don't belong there.

    I say some very unkind things to other people on the forum and I've yet to get a warning. You had to have done something real bad to get banned.

    Nope OP. You're a massive PoS that thought you could act however you wanted online without regard for a ToS you agreed to. Get over it, you got perm banned and won't be posting on their forums.

    It's the highly coveted Troll Scouts' merit badge for douchebaggery.

    It took me a year and a half to get unbanned. That's including about 4 appeals if I'm not mistaken. So yes, it's possible, but honestly not worth the effort.
