I got banned from the offical discord, the discord.gg/borderlands one, for no reason. I have no way to contact mods and the mailbox doesn’t work for me. What do I do?
Take revenge, buy handsome jack mask and overthrow Gearbox and become their new handsome dictator!
Seriously if you got banned for no reason just make alt join back and contact them about that.
Um if you were IP banned you most definitely did something wrong. That kind punishment usually comes after a thorough investigation.
did you mention hacking/modding and or cheating?
did you harass/ abuse or offend anyone?
did you wrong think anywhere?
If the answer is no then you are probably wrong and it was definitely one of those things
I didn’t hack, don’t even know how, harassing someone on discord is pretty low, and I don’t know what wrong thinking refers to.
Even if I did do something bad and I forgot about it, it’s been what, 5-6 months now, so an appeal should be achievable.
here are the rules, maybe you did something on any of it

Yeah sadly being human and agreeing but not exactly in the same way is now considered wrong thought so much for the American ideals of freedom
I can assure you, I did nothing of the sort, I was incredibly inactive on the server, I just want to get this appealed.
Your best bet is to contact one of the moderators privately about this.
I don’t know any of the mods usernames, how would I go about contacting them?
Didn’t know who he was until recently so we can cross that off
yeah again you would be shocked what “bad” can be classed as say I say something like well you made the mistake of trusting Joe blow cod modern warfare any one that I have been banned for but calling the developers of Apple gate as an example incompetent got no reprocutions at all and that was on this forum lol
or misgendering fl4k/
I know the mods are real quick to censor anything they don’t like . I had a jerk start insulting me and I fought back they censored me but not the other guy which tells me they take care of their friends .
Bet you censor this because you get hurt feelings and just because you can .
I personally am not involved in the Discord in any way - never even used it. However, I would suggest using the method suggested in the Forum rules here:
(Substitute ‘Discord’ for ‘Forum’ in the subject line obviously).
For other participants in this thread: let’s not get into massive speculation here, please. If you have first-hand knowledge of the situation, it would be better to use PMs here - thanks.
lol see I said nothing abusive or discriminating or harmful and I got flagged for wrong thought lol
If you want to know why a post was flagged and the flag upheld, PM A MODERATOR.
Closing the thread since apparently this isn’t going to go any place constructive.
Edit to add: OP has since requested the thread be closed as the issue is resolved.
