Your welcome.

Pitifully, the answer to your question about "Is there any further action" is no, as I said in my previous post, sorry.

Unfortunately, what Irene stated (and you have already done) is the limit to what you can do.

As many have said here in the past, LL bans first and asks questions later.  Heck, I honestly don't think in most cases they bother to verify the validity of the AR at all.  I had a friend who was temp banned not once but twice for gaming traffic via bots- even though he's never had a bot or even an alt.

Best of luck to you on getting this resolved.

Irene .... Sorry i am guilty of doing what i (part) ranted about in my initial post .... i didn't read the entire reply ... just the copy/paste from the KB.

 

Thank you both for your responses. I kinda figured that would be the case, but wanted to make 100% sure i hadn't missed anything

What does it mean if land is not listed in search?

I've had people come onto my small island, and where they do not allow ban lines, so I can't do much but hope my neighbors report them (which the often do). 

Then again, I have been kicked off land that had no ban lines and I had no idea I strolled into private property. I wish there was a way to enjoy the SIMs you find without problems.

Hi Irene,

 

Thank you for the good wishes.

Received an email from LL this morning (after me posting an appeal ticket) apologising for the action taken, and confirming that the recent suspension will not count against me in the future.

 

All is well again in my world

Hmmm I'm not getting the full picture here. Did you have a bunch of "bot" avatars cluttering up a sim?

Regardless of what the bots are used for, they will be counted on the traffic figures, and therefore LL are going to use the term "gaming traffic" if there are a relatively large number of bot avatars being used for any purpose, for example if someone were to have a dozen bot avatars in a skybox for playing Tiny Empires.

It wasn't that long ago that residents were getting the message "logins have been temporarily disabled due to an unusually high volume of traffic" - soul-less silent avatars are just not acceptable in a virtual world where (a) LL want cash turnover and (b) regular residents want conversation!

Feel free to clarify what it is exactly LL have suspended your account for.

My main account has been temp banned for a violation of the traffic gaming rules (fair enough you might think)

I would of thought, that a parcel that is not listed in search would not pose a problem. It's not like i am a vendor, seller or nightclub owner. it is just a plot of land where myself & a few friends can change clothes and play our hud based game in peace. The plot itself has only a wall surrounding the perimeter at ground level, and a small office space at 3000 meters.

-----------------------------------------

If what you are saying is true, why are you bothering to use bots to inflate your traffic?  All that ends up doing is create lag.  Something doesnt add up.

==================================

"play our hud based game in peace" maybe they use bots for abuse, like killing them?
