Usually discords are full of mod abusers so don't expect much

He was banned for piracy, if he didn’t get unbanned then it must mean he got caught redhanded when he mentioned something that wasn’t meant for tapas readers (patreon chapters) and of course got banned for not proving he is a patreon member (otherwise he would’ve got a warning).


yeneyouo

I didn't even say that I read TBATE on patreon. I bought it on kindle :| I was caught "red handed" when the volume 9 came out and I wanted access to the tapas and patreon channels to get spoiled.


PlayingUnfairly

Hmm, I looked and no one seemed to notice you got banned but all the mods there are fair from my experience so obviously you said something that was more fact than “theory” or whatever since they’d ask you for proof if you are a patreon at the time or own the material on kindle/audible or tapas.


tkara99

As far as I know, people are given a week to link their patreon accounts/show proof of reading legally before they get removed from the server. Similar to here, its a place to discuss TAPAS/ebook versions of the story. Patreon has its own place on the discord (and no place here) so if spoilers are thrown around then its an issue for those who read on TAPAS/ebook. No one likes getting spoiled so we try our best to avoid that haha


PlayingUnfairly

You’re indeed correct tom.


tkara99

Don’t know who this Tom guy is, only know a dude who listens to Sweater Weather.


PlayingUnfairly

UwU


yeneyouo

i did not say anything i just wanted access to the tapas and patreon channels for spoilers


PlayingUnfairly

Well tapas spoilers is straight forward but you can’t access patreon channels if you aren’t a patreon.


yeneyouo

I get that but that is no grounds to ban me is it?

Well to correct for any readers here that aren't aware, the guy who said that was patreon stuff in the linked post is wrong, that chapter is on tapas. For the record though, if there is something breaking the rules, be it patreon content, piracy, or something else, please report it so the mods can see it and remove it.


PlayingUnfairly

what was your username / # on discord?


yeneyouo

ieventus#4860


tkara99

It's been shared to the mods on discord. Should get a message soon about it hopefully!


tobygamercom

Why did they think you pirated?


KoalaSmart5878

He wanted to get spoiled on the patreon and tapas, I think if I understand correctly


yeneyouo

yes


KoalaSmart5878

Which you could interpret it in multiple ways. And like the mod here said they don’t like anyone releasing any spoilers about patreon releases

My situation is similar to yours and the TBATE discord server was my first discord experience and it was not pleasant. There was this guy i played game with and he introduced me to tbate. At that time i didnt even knew that I could read novels on google honestly because i read all my novels from my kindle on a app called goodreads. This all happened before I first got to know about reddit. My friend sent me a link that directed me to google and that was how i first came to know what a fandom is. He told to look around and get an understanding of the story first because it may not be my cup of tea. Then i went and bought book one on goodsreads and i got hooked on the novel so i bought the second book also. One day I was checking out the fandom and I accidentally clicked on a link and it directed me to PlayStore and that was how came to know of Discord lol. I downloaded the app out of curiosity and by following the instructions I made my account and went back to the fandom and clicked on the link but this time intentionally. After joining I had to verify myself by using my phone number and after I was done with that I read a few conversations that was ongoing. I finally mustered up the courage and tried inserting myself into the convo by asking a simple question then out of no where its like everyone that was conversing just started attacking me by asking if I was pirating the novel blah blah blah. I tried to explain to them that I am from the Caribbean and I am new to both fandom and discord and that the novel was recommended to me by a online friend and that I read the novel from a app thats called goodreads that came install on my kindle. I failed and they just started throwing racial slurs at me for simply no reason and said that if the novel is not from Tapitos then its pirated. There was also one guy that kept emphasizing and repeating that I should go kick coconuts instead of pirating a novel. I was really confused because they accused me of pirating even though I paid for 2 books of the TBATE novel. I wasted $41 in total buying those two books. And then out of nowhere I was not able to send anymore messages and that the server was not available anymore. It.just disappeared from the side and all that was left was the little blue robot lol. I tried joining again through the link on the fandom but it didn't work. So yeah that was my experience from the TBATE discord server. The server is full of dicks and racist people


tkara99

If you send me your discord ID I can get your ban looked at and see if it can be appealed. Also, 1) people dont just go after anyone for pirating, from my experience that only happens if you are blatantly saying stuff that are spoilers for the most recent patreon chapters and 2) there isn't any racism there. If people start saying slurs and the sort they get removed rather quickly...


SilenceOfTheBlueVoid

Only one thing man, and not exactly to you since you've learnt the hard way already... The thing is, don't try to get a "first time" on discord on larger servers.🤣🤣🤣


yeneyouo

I think many mods don't know there are other legal ways to read the novel themselves and that they only know about tapas and patreon.


tkara99

There’s a whole list of links on the discord O_o


yeneyouo

But then i clearly showed proof that i had bought tbate???


PlayingUnfairly

Well they don’t ban people for saying vol 1 - 9 content that’s on tapas/ebook so you must’ve said something regarding patreon stuff, especially when you’re even saying you want patreon spoilers or encouraging patreons to spoil.


yeneyouo

That's the point I hadn't talked about anything that was from patreon. I had used tapas once at that point. And where did you get the idea I was encouraging patreons to spoil?? I just wanted to read some volume 9 spoilers.


PlayingUnfairly

I mean if you asked for patreon spoilers, that would be encouraging piracy. I’m just trying to figure what reason why you got banned as you must’ve said something.


yeneyouo

how tf is that encouraging piracy?? By all means go ahead and try to find the thing I "said" but there is none.


PlayingUnfairly

How isn’t it? If you’re asking people to tell you patreon spoilers, you’re encouraging them to pirate it for you.


yeneyouo

Are you a bit slow? I was trying to get into the patreon channel I didnt know at that time you need to have your patreon linked for that, I made a ticket for it after which i was banned.
