    I logged into FB last night and my account is banned. My podcast page, flippin and mashing, gone, my co-host was also banned. FULL permanent ban. Both our personal accounts plus podcast page. I can ONLY assume this was for posting leaked TMNT pictures....

    Anyone else get banned? This is stupid. I can see being asked or warned first, but to just open FB 1 week after the leak and be banned...get real.

    Luckily this is my Pinball account, if I can't get this reversed then screw it, done with FB. But it was nice to have it for the Podcast, local pinball stuff, state pinball groups, and selling things.

    How do you know you were banned for posting those pics? You received no notification?

    Plus tracking. How convenient!

    #18 4 months ago

    How is it facebook’s job to enforce Stern’s desire for privacy? I could maybe understand taking down photos, but punishment? Ridiculous. There are a thousand social media accounts posting every shred of a leak from Apple & Android phones. Maybe Stern should take a hint from massively successful companies and just enjoy the free publicity. Once the pictures are out there’s no stopping them anyway. Information wants to be free.

    #19 4 months ago

    What tools. Stern just lost some respect.

    I agree. But Facebook allows comments regarding riots from John Borg who recently posted:
    “send them to gated communities to go after the bankers”

    Odd rules indeed.

    Surely you can see why the anti-vax stuff can stay up but the pinball stuff gets the banhammer, right? Yeah, me neither.

    Posting the leaks, then deadflips streams and then sterns press release were the only activity on my pinball FB account for 2 weeks :/ And for both my podcast cohost, myself and our podcast be banned from FB, that has to be it.

    In the ban, they tell you nothing. Not why, what you did, who reported. You can submit for review, and that is just submitting your phone number and a picture of yourself. Real nice for all the loud people to get a pass but a small time podcast enthusiast to get fully banned.....

    If we were asked or warned to remove pictures or the posts, it would of been no problem. Like everyone else, we are super excited for this game. We even did a podcast episode with our thoughts on features and excitement. We are just enthusiasts with a small time podcast. I think only my mom and ChrisS listen to

    If this is true it is absolute bullshit. Have you reached out to Stern?

    I deleted Facebook and messenger a few weeks ago, my quality of life has been so much better. You don’t need that shit show anyway

    #34 4 months ago

    Wait.
    Please someone for the love of god... show me where this is a TOS violation on FB.
    It's not illegal to share pictures unless it's what... something universally horrid... like child p... or mass murder. or whatever.
    But your not sharing viruses. your not sharing cracked software... you aren't promoting racism or violence.

    Serious? About a pinball game? Get a life Facecock.

    #36 4 months ago

    Fuck you Stern

    #37 4 months ago

    Wait, hold on!!! Are you trying to tell me that Stern is making a TMNT pin??? As if one wasn't enough?

    John

    #38 4 months ago

    I can understand Stern wanting to close the leaks at the source, but messing with fans on Facebook?? DIRTY POOL!

    Here are five ways that you could get banned from Facebook.
    1. Using a false name. A quick scan through your Facebook "friends list" is bound to reveal at least one alter ego or alias. ...
    2. Posting copyrighted content. ...
    3. Adding too many friends. ...
    4. Uploading obscene material. ...
    5. Unwelcome promotion.

    This is just really interesting to me. Stern blunders every single release they do. This isn't something new. I assume what happens is they send out the pictures to distributors ahead of time so they can prepare their marketing material. A few of the distributors probably provide those to their whale customers that buy every LE since they're such a good customer - also known as the true Stern insider. Said customer then forwards picture to whoever and the rest is history.

    What is completely baffling about this - is Stern is going to punish a fan and one that is freely promoting there product. How petty can you be? It isn't like this leak has any impact to Stern. They don't need to control the narrative. It's a pinball machine. Most people I know could give a shit less about pinball and I assume the general public is the same way. This is basically a bunch of rabid fans trying to get an early look. I don't understand what the big deal is.

    Waiting to see the game from a Deadflip stream isn't going to change 50% of the people saying the new game is a dimpled piece of empty playfield carboard trash from Stern and the other 50% saying how they can't believe the amazing integration and theme. Every single release goes this way. They should just embrace it. Seems like they have no issue selling games even as poor as their marketing has been to this point.

    So start flagging Stern's posts as hate speech and other nonsense. Have some fun and fuck back with them.

    Sounds like fun. How about trying to copyright claim one of their YouTube videos or something fun like that.

    #46 4 months ago

    Also fuck with the Facebook profiles of the top guys there. Flag, flag, flag away.

    Just goes to show you how important Pinball really is in this world

    How about determining why the OP was banned and if Stern was responsible before attacking them?
    FB does stupid things but it's their platform. Register a domain and put up your own website and YOU control everything.

    #49 4 months ago

    Is it confirmed that Stern really had this done?

    I know they commonly block people from posting on their page, but getting someone blocked completely from Fbook is a first.

    I mean, I don’t put it past them... but is this verified?

    Well considering Jared from stern sent out warnings to certain people on Facebook saying there would be legal repracussions or something along those lines if they didn't remove the pictures, I'd say it's pretty likely it was them. Sure as heck wasn't one of us who wanted to see the pictures
