    Hey guys,

    you have probably noticed that there have been more and more people posting threads about being banned from EPN for one reason or another. I threw together this quick survey tonight in hopes of gather some data about these seemingly random banning patterns. I think with enough data we could come up with at least a rule of thumb as to what increases your odds of being banned from EPN. I want to hear from both people who haven't been banned, and people who have

    Take the survey here: http://blackhatnix.com/EPNban

    Results will be processed and posted once enough statistically relevant data has been collected. I'd like to get at least 500 unique people to take the survey. This database will be "open source"-ish, where anyone who wants to run a query on it can just ask me and i'll be happy to report the results.

    Thanks!

    This is a good idea but you should add to the "reasons for ban" dropdown. Add Cookie Stuffing Violation and Blank Referrers.

    mate, careful with the results, if ebay gets to know that their campaign was ''effective'', or many high profile stuffers still have their accounts, they might launch a second round.

    huh, this survey is retarded.. better not give ebay any data. I think its possible that there are a few ebay trojan horses around, even in the Jr Vip section. So please don't be stupid. Hell, the OP might be an ebay rep. No offence to anyone, but its better to be paranoid, than forcing egay to go even more wild with the banning.


    All I can see right now is Ebay is going around on a banning spree like a wild dog. They don't know who is doing what, so they are just taking chances. This statistic can do real damage.

    Im pretty sure ebay visit this forum..

    Collecting information of people that havent been banned is a good idea. @sendlerad - did you create your accounts yourself? What kind of proxies did you use?

    I lost my a/c's 2 days ago.

    People are getting banned randomly, we need to get over it. When there's a big 'outstanding balance' on the way, you'll get added for 'Network Quality Review' :23: or they'll just ban you right away. Cat-mouse game with these guys/girls, but you'll never win from them.

    Yes i create them i use my method, cant really go in details here, PM me if you need some help or accounts, guide..

    I am just guessing but liging with diff. IP addresses is a reason for ban,

    well i could suggest to create account login once, add payment, tax inforamtion, generate link codes, screlude statistic so you will get all account activity via email so no need to login for a long time.
