I originally posted irregularly on a sub and when I asked a mod for help as to why my posts weren’t being approved, he randomly banned me from the sub without asking. I messaged and he said in the future I will be allowed again, he said 30 days.

When I logged out of my first account on my pc accidentally, I had to make a new one because I hadn’t written my password down.

On my second account, since the 30 days passed, I made a post on that sub. I woke up to seeing reddit saying I got permabanned for ban evasion, and they won’t reply to my pleas.

I found it really frustrating. I tried waiting 3 weeks after that and Making a new account. It got banned in 8 hours. Next week I make a new account, again banned in 8 hours.

I’m extremely disheartened that I got banned over a mistake and now I’m unable to use reddit at all.

Anybody else relate to this?

I use reddit for university subs as well so it’s very frustrating I can’t ask questions anymore.

    I had legitimate bans and completely ridiculous power tripping bans. I was always able to create a new account though. The trick is to mix and match different VPN’s/IP’s with different browsers/containers.

        Doest work, tried that and eveything else. I found that using Brave browser works but found it wasn’t worth it.

          I guess they’re using browser fingerprints beyond cookies, such as WebGL to ID your hardware. Firefox on Strict with uBlockOrigin would probably prevent them IDing you. I doubt your IP factors in much because many people share IPs and it automatically rotates once in a while anyway.
