Hey Sakura, sorry to bug you, but I think that there should be a sticky in the classifieds section about using correct punctuation. this may seem silly, but I have noticed that some sellers are not using the correct punctuation and/or spelling, and this makes their post hard to read or take seriously. it's quite difficult to understand and may drive away potential buyers. this is just a suggestion. thanks, ~Saphira
Hi Saphira. It looks like the contest is still accepting submissions so no voting yet. After 8 days, there should be a link posted under the current winning photograph of the contest that will allow you to vote.
Banned just means someone has broken some forum rules and is being denied access to the forum. Depending on the severity of the rule breaking, it can be temporary (most bans we give out are 3 day bans) or permanent. Usually, the only people we ban permanently are trolls or spammers. No one except spammers will ever be banned without receiving at least two prior warnings about their behavior. The moderating team will always do their best to work through any problems with someone. :)
