I have an odd account suspended situation...

Question

  • 0

"how were they able to fix their problem instantly when they want me to wait for weeks? My friend suggested that you have to yell at people to get things done, but I don't want to believe that.?"

This 'answer' isn't going to be received well, but it's 'who even knows why'.  Secondlife is wacked.  I had a premium membership, my fault totally but i forgot about the due date, i've got every reminder but missed this one, I try logging in one day and my account is frozen.  Billing tells me to contact my cardholder and as luck would have it Mastercard is having issues (first time ever and imminently to be resolved); the Paypal transaction I'm awaiting is  (just) 2days away, Billing won't budge so okay I got 20000L on my account - LL and Billing even knows its there - knowing that and that I could pay them THEIR money in mere seconds do you think they'll let me get to it so I can.  Long story short I jumped though hoops, paid it in full that day to Billing's satisfaction, was allowed to log... only to be frozen AGAIN the next morning cause i owed $0.01.

Who even knows why LL does what it does.  Colour me twisted though I don't overly mind cause it's a double-edged sword... I like the lawlessness, the wild wild west you never know whats going to happen next of being on the grid.  No i don't like grievers or idiots or the LL snafu's... but i'm glad it's not a tight ship either.  It does always leave you wondering what the hell's going on doesn't it.

All I can suggest is keep the faith and you'll see this though, and a huge hi5 for the not yelling at people to get things done - that's noble.  Actually an insertion of a dig so cleverly disguised they other person doesn't even notice can be pretty funny.

I know I agreed that they could suspend my account for whatever reason and without any compensation for loss etc. when I agreed to the terms of service, but that doesn't mean I expected them to suspend my account for basically no reason at all. I could understand if they wanted me to prove my identity after getting multiple age varification requests or something to that effect, but thats not what happened. My account is suspended because they want to know if I am someone who isn't even banned anymore. The only thing that is going to prove is that I shouldn't have been banned in the first place, and that making me wait is just more punishment that I don't deserve. They are not going to compensate me at all for this unjust treatment. Its not just a matter of, "Who knows why," its more like, "Who do they have working here?" Common sense dictates there is no reason at all that I am still banned, yet they insist on protocal in my case, yet an actual griefer (or whatever the person did to get banned that I am "linked" to) can call in and return to SL the same day. Maybe I just talked to the wrong person on the support staff? Or, perhaps I really should have yelled at them. Seems to work for griefers.

"Maybe I just talked to the wrong person on the support staff?"

That is entirely likely.  Granted it was for account related stuff vs support related stuff but I've run up against a brick wall, then in turn talked to someone else and the difference was like night and day.  Human nature I suppose.  It's like getting caught being slightly over the speed limit, a rookie might write you up vs a veteran issuing a warning... whats the worse that would happen if you tried re-stating your case or politely asking if you could talk to a supervisor, someone in higher authority, other than just getting the same answer.  I'd retry with the hope calmer heads would prevail.

I had already called them 3 times that day, and when I kept getting the same answers from different people, I kind of gave up on it. Now that I think about it, I should give them another call. Shame its already past office hours. I suppose when I check tomorrow, if I am still banned, I will go ahead and make another call and see if I can find someone that could assist me a little rather then just tell me they can't do anything.

The first person I talked to couldn't do anything either... not at all their fault as undoubtedly there is only so much thats in their control... in my case i was pretty sure something could be done and a polite 'well there must be someone i could talk to' met with success.  I too like to think reason beats harsh attitude and I hope you prove that right - best of luck.

Unfortunately, either there is nothing they can do, or no one is willing to do anything at the support center. Despite my persistance, they only thing they would tell me is that they handed it over to inworld security and that I just have to wait for them to respond. Regardless of this rediculous situation, regardless of my premium member status, regardless of how pointless my identity now is, I just have to wait for them to get around to someday reviewing my guest account ticket.  I fail to see any optimism in this situation. I should have never been banned in the first place, and if they thought my accounts belonged to the other person, I should have been unbanned 2 days ago. Instead I am stuck in some kind of pointless limbo. I don't mean to come across as impatient, but I see this to be similar of being taken into custody as a suspect of murder only to find out it was a suicide, yet you are still in prison waiting to be identified.
