    G'day guys,

    I wasn't sure whereabouts this thread should go, so if there is a more suitable spot, MODs feel free to move :thumbup:

    My FB account was randomly disabled the other day, and I was hoping someone in the OCAU community has had this happen to them, and been able to resolve it.

    I did not receive an email or any notification as to the reasons behind my ban, and I don't use any automated scripts or any of the applications?

    I am a massive Eels fan, and after Jarryd Hayne's amazing try against St.George the other day, I jokingly had in my status update that I would have sex with Jarryd Hayne **JOKE**.

    Two hours later and I can't sign in. Is that seriously the reason why I'm now banned from FB?

    Any help/advice/knowledge on this advice would be greatly appreciated, as even though I'm not a fan of the site, it is kinda paramount to Uni and work commitments.

    Cheers,

    jars121

    EDIT: Received an email from FB today, claiming that my activity on FB resembled that of an automated script. My email obviously proved to them that I am in fact a person, not a program haha.

    Perhaps contacting facebook's support would be a good idea?

    I have emailed FB about it, they have some account setup for this purpose, disabled@facebook.com I think?

    When I try and log in it says account disabled. I tried making a new account with a different email address, and it says that the automated name check failed because my name is banned!?!

    So frustrating!

    What names are we talking about here?

    Did you make your personal name (facebook.com/NAMEHERE) anything trademarkable or offensive?

    I didn't have one of those personal name things in the address bar...I find it strange that I didn't get a notification as to why my account was disabled. I think I will just give it a couple of weeks and see if they reply to my email. Oh well.
