    So I really want to buy the Jr. VIP membership and I've been here long enough to know it's a great investment and a great way to give back to the forum, but I have some concerns.

    A few weeks ago I was banned for a week because of "Review Begging" and this is the post I made on a services thread that was just started:

    "Are there any reviews available? Hate to ask, but I'm for the first to comment"

    Now, I realize that may have been just asking without saying I will leave a review, but I guess I thought it was assumed, which is my fault. I was just banned without any explanation or second chance from a mod and I even sent an email trying to explain myself.

    I myself don't think that was "review begging" but more of an ignorant post. What are you guys' thoughts?

    I would love to get Jr. VIP, but I'm worried about this. I would never mean to beg for anything here, but I'm just worried about getting banned for menial stuff like this.

    If I'm a Jr. VIP do I get a chance to explain myself? Other than that I'm 100% on board to get the Jr. VIP because I love this forum.

    Thanks for your input :D

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    Asking for a review copy is not against the TOS here now; that was a recent update.

    I do not recall which Mod/Admin made the rule but it is now one.

    Just don't ask for a review copy unless the OP of the thread offers one and you fit the criteria and you should be fine.

    I've been banned twice, once for security reasons ans once for kicking off at a mod.
    Both perfectly justified.
    When it comes to review copies on here just have some manners. Don't ask unless the
    Op offers however being JrVip you tend to be offered reviews first not to mention
    access to the JrVip downloads, tips and tutorials.

    Oh! I forgot to mention the big red paypal button.

    You won't get banned for "menial" stuff. Only for not following the rules :)

    That all makes sense and seems to be reasonable, but what about more contact with the admins. Like if I'm Jr. VIP and I get banned can I message an admin and they will get back to me?

    I feel like I was banned out of the blue and I just wanted to know more why or at least a better explanation.

    Regardless, you will see me a Jr. VIP later tonight :)

    You won't get banned permanently unless you plan on doing something really outrageous.
    A weeks ban is a good time to actually get some work done and go through some of those
    downloads that are stacking up on your hard drive.

    Welcome to Jr.Vip!

    Donation for Jr.Vip is the best way to give back to BHW, it is basically not buying, you are donating, and you get the jr.vip section as a bonus.

    Thanks :)

    I feel like when I first got to BHW, just following thread after thread trying to archive everything before I even begin analyzing :D

    So what's the point of this thread again?

    Are you saying sorry or moaning?

    Surely you haven't missed it.
    Press it once a week and it fills your paypal account up.
    Sometimes if Harro's feeling generous it flashes and you get 40k facebook fans,
    3k CL postings and 2million email sent out all while you sleep.
