I've been banned from the DIS!

OH MY GOOD CRAP!! I just got banned from the DIS for life. Wow. I didn't even do anything. I haven't made one post there today with everything going on. NOTHING.

I got a message saying the following:

The photo is of what the floor mosaic in the center of the esplanade. It's kind of a compass. It's very cool!!

Ok - so my answering a question was Spam? What?!?!! Then I tried to respond to the message and got this screen:



So. Please don't try and PM me or anything over there. Cuz I'm banned forever. Wow. How sad. Sad. Sad. Sad. I never use the DIS for advertising. I'm VERY careful not to. Wow. I cannot believe this just happened!!

I honestly NEVER abuse the DIS for advertising and personal profit. EVER. What a joke. I'm just so saddened. I hope none of my other DIS pals are being banned too!!!!!! So - apparently my choice to move to MouseScrappers was a good one! WOW. I'm just blow away. I'm trying really hard not to have hurt feelings or take this personally. But they like sought me out and banned me. FOR NO GOOD REASON. I wish at least I'd have done something to warrant it!! SHEESH!

  1. This is total crap. I'm so sorry that you got banned. I know you weren't trying to advertise there and you SURE weren't spamming. The DIS used to be such a fun place to hang out. Now, not so much. :( They are getting a little to high on themselves over there. I already went and signed up at the new site and I can't wait to play!

  2. "Bullies try to fill their buckets by dumping other people's buckets" is what my son told me once. I think it applies here. Don't let them dump your bucket Britt! Hold on to it and be strong. Really, it's their loss -- they will be losing you and all of us. We still think you are the best! Watch out MouseScrappers, your user number is going to hit a record high.

  3. So WRONG!!! I am stunned and so upset for you. You went out of your way to follow the rules.

  4. This makes me so freaking mad. There are some great people on the DIS... I love the Cruise bBard and the the Walt Disney World Resorts Board, but the mods on the Scrapbooking board have been absolutely HORRIBLE to you. They are mean, mean people and should be ashamed of themselves. This is downright discriminatory.

  5. just because people use your stuff on the challenges doesnt make you a spammer. I think they must have just noticed your name around all the time cause people talk about your great work. but its still total crap. big hugs. I mean, cause you werent even involved in anything that happened???

  6. Unbelievable but I can't say I'm surprised. They are very full of themselves. You just brought a bunch of people to their site. I've noticed that you were very careful and didn't have your blog in your signature and didn't post your kits or sales.

    You did give us prizes and freebies, that even is against the new rules.

    I've been on the DIS almost 10yrs and the only place I used anymore was the Scrapbook board. That is over now.

    Quite frankly, I'm pissed about all of this.
    Thanks for referring us to the new site!!!

  17. Wow! I've enjoyed participating in the DIS challenges, but if that's the way they're going to treat people.... I'm so sorry :(

  18. Totally wrong. Seriously where in your reply is that spam? Will haed over to mousescrappers. We love and support you and the disney digi-scrap challenges.

  19. This is the DIS for ya - this is what they do. I just realized when I came to the blog (I read the email part). I think they have banned you because of your screen name - not because of that one post. They said something about that in the "guidelines" that the screen name can't be a business name. Knowing how they operate, registering as yourself, would probably not be an issue. That is if you could even think of wanting to be there now!

    Anyway, they stink! You would think they could have talked with you about it!

  20. Brittney,
    Thank you so much for helping all of us out. I am a follower and also am excited to say that I will be at Disney with you in a little over a week. Thanks for all you do and also all you have given to this group. I personally will not participate in something that hurts designers (both traditional and digital).

  21. Wow Britt, I'm sorry for you! I've never been at DIS and all I've ever heard about it is from you, but some stories made me think there's just too much drama there. Don't let this get to you! Hugs!

  22. Britt,
    Im soo sorry that this happened to you! I totally do not understand what the mods are talking about! They are crazy! I loved looking at the challenges every week and they got me excited to scrap my disney pics. I cant wait to check out the new site.

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's just insane! Sorry to hear about your banning...it's utter nonsense! I signed at MouseScrappers myself today...can't wait to play around on their boards and see what's what!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm very shocked to hear this Brit.. So sorry you had to go thru that. I loved checking out the challenges on the DIS, its really unfortunate. MouseScrappers is a great site and will be even better now..

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hey Britt.....so sorry this happened to you! Don't take it personally. The same thing happened to another friend of mine about a week ago over on the Rewards board for similar reasons....well, no reason really because neither of you did anything wrong. I just think they are really cracking down and it has gone over the top. I don't understand it though because the whole premise of the site is to share information. It's their loss though.....and a major one too because of all the scrappers you will be taking with you!

  26. Britt, please don't let this get you down. I'm glad you've found a new home to post and I've just signed up there myself. Keep doing the great work you do and don't even give them a second thought. You are such a sweetie and it is THEIR loss NOT yours! Keep your head up and remember: Soon you'll be at WDW!!!! That would brighten anyone's day!

  27. I'm so sorry to hear about this...I really don't understand why DIS is doing this to you! I also don't understand why they are changing the way the challenges are done; in my mind referencing the designers blogs/stores is no different than what they do on the Budget Board or the Families Board - there are always links to 3rd party stores there??? Looking forward to seeing you on MouseScrappers : )

  28. Wow, wow, wow Britt - I can't believe what a horrible day you must have had yesterday! And all of this less than 2 weeks before your first WDW trip!?!?! I'm so sorry it got to that point, but really appreciate you taking so much time to find a new home. I registered last night and will have to check it out soon. Take care and hope you have a much better day today!!!

  29. Oh how awful, Britt! Truly this is not deserved! Your little sad Mickey at the end of the post about made me cry because I know how it feels to be wrongly accused of something and still have to pay the price in the end. Honestly though I think THEY will pay a great price too by losing you and all who love to participate in your challenges. THEIR LOSS! I had no idea anything was brewing over there since I'm there so infrequently, but I'm happy that you have a new positive place to continue on! This trip actually is coming at a perfect time so you can relax, forget about the drama and be in the "Happiest Place"!! You'll come back refreshed, ready to design with so many new ideas and will be like "DIS who?" lol...keep your chin up girl, we all love ya to pieces! =) XOXO {{{HUGS}}}

  31. I've been following DIS the last few weeks because of your challenges - never heard of them elsewhere. We're taking a trip to DisneyWorld in Dec so I've been getting inspiration for our trip. I was just about to join. I won't be joining now. The way they handled things was very immature and lacked professionalism even in the way the notes are written to you. I won't be back there. Professionalism and kindness is lacking in too many places in life - not going to hang out on websites where it is missing too.

  32. *hugs Britt...don't let them get you down....Rise above it Chick!

  33. Totally unbelievable!!! Like fonetta said, "Their loss". Can't wait to continue on Mousescrappers.
    Hugs!

  34. Oh my gosh! That totally sux and is ridicules! I first heard about you from the DIS. Wow. That is all I can say!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Britt- I see i'm with the majority that this is TOTAL CRAP! I'm so sorry- you must've been rattled! Sad, Sad, Sad. I'll happily follow you to mousescrappers! Someday, I'll upgrade the RAM in my system so i can use Photoshop more functionally again :)

    Just keep swimming!

  36. Welcome to the club of hundreds of people who have been banned. Many for no reason at all. Some for just standing up for those. You sure aren't alone. -- formerly SplshMtn99 since 2000

  37. Wow. Not sure what else to say, but - Wow. And I'm so sorry. Scrapping Disney should be fun!!! Drama stinks!

    ReplyDelete
  38. So sorry that happened Britt, but I am inspired by your positive attitude! You go girl. I can't wait to join you at MS

    ReplyDelete
  39. I had no idea you were banned!!! WOW! I won't be visiting the Scrapbook forum anymore. I really think some of the must still be in high school. Absolutely ridiculous. Thanks for finding a new home. I never really got to be a part of the old one on Dis since I just started digital recently so I'm looking forward to it. :)

  40. Bummer, I was just getting into the DIS challenges, at least I was trying. I will check out your new forum for sure. So sorry you had to deal with this. I really can't see the problem. It's just one of those crazy things in life. So sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hey, they are the ones to lose there! Cause I didn't even know there was a scrapbooking thread there and I had no idea you had so many gorgeous kits, so I'm off to your store now!

    ReplyDelete
  42. That is so stupid! I can't believe they banned you. For gosh sakes, one of the workers at the Howard Johnson by Disneyland is on there and posts when new dates are added or they have updated info. That is direct solicitation. Wonder if you had become a sponsor or something if that would have made a difference. Oh well and good ridance, over to mousescrappers I go!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh my gosh I just got back from Disneyland of all places and see this.

    WOW! You are the one who turned me on to the DIS boards way back when.... I'm so sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  44. So sorry to hear this, I love the DIS but sometimes it feels like the powers that be over there, think too highly of themselves. I was fined one time for quoting what someone else had said .. totally stupid. I was immensely hurt, as I imagine you must feel even more so. (((Britt)))

  45. They will ban you for anything on disboards .If a person on the site doesn't like you they will get you banned .They will provide no explanation to why you were expect that they just don't like you.
