So, let's start this out by putting you in my shoes. Picture this; You've just published your LitRPG on Amazon and you're looking to get some exposure. The first thing you do is head on over to the LitRPG Society page on Facebook because they haven't got the specific day rule and you've published on a Monday because Amazon is apparently working faster than ever. Things are going well but you want to put your book up on the LitRPG page because it has a larger following and in the past you've put books up there and have gotten tons of sales. Problem is they have 2 specific posting days, Tuesday and Friday, which wouldn't be so bad if you didn't live on the other side of the world. But you arent going to get a little thing like messed up time zones stop you from doing what you've always done. So at 11pm, when you're barely half awake, you write up the promo post as you've done half a dozen times with other books and go to sleep wondering what tomorrow will bring as each time you've done this you've woken up to hundreds of sales. Then you wake up at 5.30am and you go onto KDP and see that there's been no spike, and you think, 'That's fine, sometimes it takes some time to register'. Then you go onto Facebook and see that you've got no new notifications on your post, that seems a bit odd but you assume it's just been buried. So you go onto the LitRPG page in search of the post and discover it's gone. That's when you think maybe a mod has deleted it for whatever reason, so you check your messages for the tell-tale 'you broke this rule' message and discover there are none. Suddenly you have your 'Ahh' moment and realise that 'Hell, last night I was half asleep, I probably didn't even write the post, it must've been a semi-conscious dream'. So you rewrite the post with the knowledge that you've lost a whole lot of engagement and sales, but hey, better late than never. That post stays up for a few minutes, even gets a like, then disappears and then you get a message. Thus begins the rant. Okay, first things first: 'Banishment enacted'? You banned me from your page, not the lands of Avalon. Secondly, WTF? In what universe does deleting a post without so much as a message to the poster put the accused at fault? Fun fact, posting twice in one day would happen a whole lot less if you bothered to tell the guy/gal that his/her post had been deleted. The amount of times I haven't hit 'POST' on a lengthy post and shutdown my computer or turned off my phone, or Facebook has simply fudged up are innumerable, so don't expect us all to immediately assume that it's been deleted manually. That's part of the job of being a moderator; letting the accused know that they've done something wrong. Cops can't just chase people down the street and arrest them without saying a word. Mods shouldn't be able to go 'Ah, you ignored our first non-existent warning, it's the ban hammer for you!' I'm willing to admit I did the wrong thing, I didn't know I had, but I'll admit it. People screw up, and this just so happened to be one of mine. Except that's just the thing. A few months ago there was a post on the LitRPG page (I'd grab screenshots if I wasn't banned) that outright stated in the comments that the aforementioned 'Check with a mod' rule was for new authors to the genre. Hell, I had the same guy last time try to hit me with the ban hammer (I'm 99% sure, it may have been someone else) but I told him that I'd clarified with the almighty, self-proclaimed 'Father' himself, and that was enough to make him bugger off. Again though, I am willing to admit that I was at fault for not rereading the rules every time I post something, I should've probably checked to make sure it was all hunky-dory. However I'm not the only one who has been hit with this, and I should probably count myself lucky that I got a message at all before getting thrown into the pit. The amount of people that don't fit their anal rules who get thrown under the bus because the big wigs don't like us is crazy. You got a problem with Kong? To the pit! You think the Land is anything less than perfect? To the pit! Your book's too short? To the pit! You're too successful and rival the 'Father'? To the pit! Seriously, the rules that apply to people who are famous or buddy-buddy with the LitRPG National Socialist leaders are significantly laxer than for the lesser knowns. Do you think if Stephen King wrote a LitRPG that he'd get banned for messing up the protocol? Now I know you're probably wondering 'Why does this upset you so?' and the answer's rather simple; THIS HAS SCREWED MY SALES UP. I love LitRPG Society, I really do, but the LitRPG page certainly generated a lot more sales for me in the past. That's not to say that LitRPG Society hasn't been incredibly helpful though, everyone over on that page has been an absolute delight, my only thing is that I wish that it had the exposure of the LitRPG page. Anyway, that's me done, I'd love to know what you guys think though.
