I'm guessing you failed at using Psypoke forums? You also tried to start a thread on bumping your post count, which is strictly against Psypoke code. Then, when Firestarter obviously hinted to not continue your topic...you did.

And then you double posted. Nice. :violin:

Mmm...I don't think you can. You have to be REALLY REALLY good from now on; then you might get a shot at becoming a normal member again.

If your topic goes to lintaro's lair, you or other members can't reply to that thread, but administrators can. Also, I think that your post count goes down (taking off the posts obtained).
If you started a thread, try looking at your profile and choosing "Find all posts by this member". You should be able to find it even if you only posted there.
Probation is a shame rank. It usually lasts a month. Go here for more info:
http://www.psypokes.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5387
Members only get banned if they do really bad things (flaming, swearing, stealing others work, etc.).

If you follow the rules, you can have a happy time at this website, and not worry about those things.

Okay, remember, this is a web forum, it doesn't really matter that much, so if it end up making your day worse, and you end up crying over it, then you really shouldn't go.

(web forums are supposed to be amusing and helpful, not the opposite.)

Quoted from Wikipedia.org:


Failure (or flop) in general refers to the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective. It may be viewed as the opposite of success.

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

Quoted from an "anonymous websource":


From the dawn of time, there have been winners and losers. And it has been the sole responsibility of those who win, to point out to the loser, just how much they suck. Hence the creation of the "YOU FAIL IT" response.


Forms of FAIL:
fayel
fhail
fhayle
fhaile
fhaiyle
fahyll
failzorz
fhailskies
fhaylezorz
phail
ph4il
ph41l
phailzorz
fhphaiiylle

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

Thus, FAIL has clearly been defined for you. In regards to it being on your avatar, I would imagine you acted in a certain manner or participated in some activity exemplifying FAIL at its highest, thus the Higher Beings (Administrators/Moderators; whichever applies to the given situation) deemed it necessary to stamp you with such a mark to illiustrate your outstanding failure not only to you, but to the other members of this community.

I suggest sending a personal message to a moderator or Administrator requesting them to cite a specific example of your behavior that resulted in said stamp being placed upon you. After receiving this knowledge, if at all you do, you could then take the necessary steps to not engage in such activities to be FAIL-free and keep your natural avatar.

Best of luck to you.

You know what fail is? When someone revives a thread posted almost 2 months ago.
