My new account has been banned

So, I just logged into the site today to find out that my account (haerondir) had been banned permanently from the forums. First of all I only created a new account because I wanted to change my username and I got no response from the admins after I tried to contact them. I believe the reason they banned me was because "I was trying to participate in contests with another account," when I actually stopped using this account altogether which I couldn't even delete and used the new one to participate.

So, if someone could help me get my account back that'd be of great help.

Do wish people would stick to one account ! It's not encouraged for people to switch usernames

Unbanned your other account and stopped this one instead

When people enter competitions i randomly check some of the people who enter (or win) to make sure they dont have more than one account. In the past some people have cheated by entering 4 times and then winning the money. Thats not fair on anyone.

So in this case you werent cheating but you had another account so one was blocked. Again i just wish people would stick to one forum name
