As a newbie in WA you are asked to comment. Out of 10 comments my first three were really feedbacks, no training. So now if i don't ask the group, I just can't comment, because I was banned. I was banned the first month, by doing as I was instructed. So how long does the ban last? I personally feel they should allow at least 3 months before banning someone who isn't trained. If the powers that be see this but don't know the answer, would you ask Kyle about this.

The first thing I ever read about WA was on the Ripoff Report about members who were fully paid for a year being blocked from writing. Since someone being blocked cost WA money I could not understand how this could happen for a business. I understand forums are run by people with maturity and control issues and so it's understandable there. I feel as Kyle matures this in the future will be eliminated because it only hurts him.

I am not being blocked from writing. I am being blocked from giving comments using the credit system. But I will continue to go to the classroom and ask for comments. It works. Just wanted to know if that is temporary of indefinite.

Could be indefinitely unless you can successfully make an appeal to Kyle and behave subsequently!

My first three comments were feedbacks. the last seven were good after training. I go to the classrooms and ask for comments but wanted to know if this is indefinite or temporary. It hasn't been lifted yet. I still think, you allow time to train people, then after a certain length of time ban them.

I am a bit confused with the wording of your explanation. You were banned the first month by doing as you were instructed? Then why isn't everyone else banned as well? Can you explain why you were banned from commenting in the first place? Was it constructive feedback or was it destructive feedback?

They put the rules in view here. People shouldn't comment unless they know what they should and shouldn't say. Yah know? I mean if others aren't banned here for doing what is instructed then do a process of elimination to seek the problem and where it stems from so it doesn't happen again.

When I first came to WA, I was doing the lessons. After I got my first article done it tells you to get comments. Ok when you do that they also ask you to give 2 comments then you can have someone comment on your article. I am not banned from writing, I am banned from giving comments so I can receive them. That is why I do it in the classroom.

Have you tried the second option for doing comments?

If you are banned doing comments using the credit system, then do the comments on the comment give and take thread instead.

Don't understand. What I have done is ask for comments in the classroom, but don't understand take thread.
