Who or What banned me?

Question

I am on good terms with the people of the sim where I am employed.
However, every weekend at the same time we have a show. Sometimes, I am banned randomly during this show time. Others have also been banned during this time.

When I get banned, I get a notification like "You have been banned. You have 15 seconds to leave the area or you will be ejected."
If I leave before the 15 seconds elapse, I do not get banned.
This issue has been a long term problem. It has made working very difficult.

Is it possible to view What or Who banned me? Please help.

Since you say that it seems to happen when there is a show going on, is it possible that they invoke some sort of Avatar Complexity check and your complexity, by whatever they are using to measure it, is too high?  There are events that do that sort of thing.

That is a good question. Since I am normally performing in the show I try to keep my complexity low. However, I have been banned running minimal scripts and with complexity of 29k. I don't think this is it but it is something I have considered.

best to talk to the parcel/region owner. The message is most likely from a scripted device monitoring complexity.as Lil mentions. A device which can only eject you when owned by the parcel owner, or owned by the group that owns the parcel

the parcel owner should be able to add you and the other performers to the device white list, so you/performers don't get ejected while performing

even tho your complexity may be low ordinarily, you may still be higher than others present, in which case you are at the top of the list to get ejected when the region server FPS drops below the level that the device is set too

It might also be a practical joke played on you by one of the audience.  Is this message in nearby chat?  If so, it might be coming from a "ventriloquist" object.  When using one of these, a prankster types something into a numbered chat channel.  The device then parrots this text in the Nearby Chat channel, but with a header that makes it look like it's coming from someone else, or from some scripted object.

You seem to be conflating banned and ejected. 

I haven't played with the new Eject & Ban functions in scripting. So, it may be possible to make a security orb that gives you time to leave before ejecting and banning, which would prevent your coming back in. Whatever the case a 15 second warning, or any time frame, is a scripted object at work. Most region/event managers IM and tell you to leave and then click EJECT if you don't. Time is never mentioned.

The 15 second system warning occurs once an explcit ban is added to the banlist of the parcel you are over, after which time is up, an auto-eject occurs.

Said ban can either be made by script or user with land rights.
