Account Troubles Answered

Hello, I would appreciate if this account is not banned please in advanced. Now, I went to get into instructables the other day, and it gave me a error 500 or something similar and said my account was locked. Why is this? I didn't do anything wrong and I want to have it unlocked as I have pictures on there I need to retrieve, I'm very angry with whoever locked my account and the pictures better still be there.


You know what Iove about this topic? NO ONE HAS ANSWERED ME! Why is everyone so inconsistant on here?

If no one has answered... where's the inconsistency :P In any case -- just give it time ;) It's only been two full business days since you posted ;) There's a reason for everything :)

Your theory fails, I got one reply from him and thats it, he explained why it was locked and that I know I hadn't used it in that way (i.e racism, cruelness). You lose this round?

First... you said no one answered you
Second... you just said the first thing was a lie
Third... You have to be kidding me -- you insulted a group of people that need prosthetics by saying:

"Another idea is just to be carefully when shoving limbs under a running lawnmower"

or this gem

"So posting on another instructable aka mine, doesn't make you a retard then?"

In any case... this isn't a competition.... Besides if anyone lost, Mr.Devious did ;)

Ha ha, you're just as bad. You left a lot out and it was careful not carefully in the first quote btw. Also, you happened to leave out the rest of the conversation from which that reply in the second quote came from. Stop where you are and just turn around, you can't get at me.

There's nothing to get at... there's no race... there's nothing to win.

I consider this issue closed.

I'm gonna go ahead and put my foot in my mouth. Putting limbs under a lawn mower is a VERY bad idea. Of course there are some stupid people that just do it anyways. Am I gonna get banned for that?

Sigh, people seem to reply to everything else fairly quickly, and it's been longer than that in this part of the world. I know that people could be looking into this more quickly. But you know what, I say fuck it because I don't want the other account back. It's too much of a hassle.

Try sending a private message or email to ewilhelm.

And he hasn't pmed me back.

I locked the Mr. Devious account. That account was used to make insulting, vulgar, and racist comments, which I have deleted. Not only were many of Mr. Devious's comments flagged, other Instructables members pointed Mr. Devious out as someone who was habitually violating our "be nice" policy. I consider this issue closed.

Fine, you can remove this post then.

Has it been unlocked?

Here is a screenshot:

Thats what happened when I tried to log out of this account and back into that one and as a result I had to delete the cookies from instructables in order to log back into this one. I was able to look at the profile. So I haven't been banned, but it appears my account has been locked.

Mr.devious. I have a feeling that because of telling you that account, this one is going to get banned too.

What is the username of the locked account?
