I've heard the term 'Creator ban' and 'Creator Banned', but how do I know if I have been hit with it myself?
A week or so ago I posted a link to a Capture AFK playlist I had made, in a thread here on se7en. In about 15 minutes or so, the playlist and all my 16 jobs were deleted. I never heard anything from r* about it. Today I was trying to make a new job and save it. I could not save it, r* cloud was unavailable. On my other PS4 I had no problems at the same time, and could save/update jobs with no problems.
When I tried to publish an old job, its popped up an alert saying 'publish mission' in big yellow letters, and 'Saving to UGC' in smaller white letters underneat with no buttons to click, and message wouldnt go away untill i disconnected. What is this [email protected]? Have I been creator banned for making afk-captures? Can this really be?

Man...
I definitely need to check Xbox:frown:
I have been using creator on PS4 just fine but haven’t posted anything from either of my accounts here publicly:frown:
schitzotm has warned me about this.
Hopefully he’s available to weigh in on the subject... I know he has had the experience:frown:
Anyhow I think I’m going to lock my thread seeing that anything that’s posted there has been and continues to be deleted:frown:
I hope we are not banned:frown:
I think if I share jobs in the future they will need to be from a dummy account that I plan on only using for Creator:wink:

I think it is kinda, no, not kinda, VERY sucky of r* to ban me/us for making an AFK-capture.... I mean, wow... I can understand being banned for 10k modded jobs and that stuff, but for a non-modded walking in circles afk? Thats just childish behavior imho. But yeah, I will just use one of my existing accounts, or make me a new one, but I'm not gonna be buying any sharkcards for it, thats for sure :tongue:

I agree that it's sucky of them but a lot of things that they do are. It's important to remember that the developer has always made clear their stance on breaching ToS.

I believe it's highly likely this has happened to the OP however at the same time, I would expect a proper notice.

Ouch! Thats sound bad and R* is serious about taken it down. Thats sound scared to me and never seen it before. Possible most likely players "fanboy" reports to R* about this capture playlist and they thinks its cheating or something else but I dont know and thats sad. Gta 5 isnt game anymore and its likely more strict with eula and rules. I wish I could see why R* taken it down and Im sorry I dont know whats do. Players "fanboy" want to be fair with level and money.

For example right now Im on level 525 and other players saw I have level 525 then they got mad and report to R* about my level. Thats really simple and its just game but they dont care if gta 5 is just game and they likes to report to R* anyways.

hmmmm, none of my content on ps4 & xb1 has been deleted yet....

i have very well known maps :what:

i post my jobs here.... hmmm

i can see why the modded jobs, but thats sh.itty if they took a normal job.

are you positive your banned and not just experiencing network issues?
 
the image is normal.....

i get that image everytime i upload a copied job
 
try suspending app if you get stuck on upload succesful screen.

try to relink ur sc again, thats where you would prolly see any ban alerts

I haven’t checked Xbox yet...
When I do I can give a definitive answer:frown:
If I was banned it would be on that account that I have well over 1000 jobs.
I have noticed a lot of issues surrounding the cloud server being unavailable:frown:
I have restarted GTA and PS4 too many times... just to get a good connection to the server? Or not:wink:

Anyhow...
Need to check Xbox for sure...
Im good to go on PS4:wink: no issues

double check ur mtu settings. and nat/firewalls....

each console operates slightly different, even though you didn't manually change your settings sometimes they get changed around

If nothing has changed, then you can absolutely guarantee that the issue is on Rockstar servers


If you still think it's on your side at this point..... UNLINK SC AND THEN DO THESE STEPS....

go to settings / application manager or Account Manager on PS4 and delete your entire game saves and profile. Then restart GTA load into prologue, then quit GTA when you see prologue. Now press options on gtav, choose upload download save data and download everything from the cloud, over write everything. Restart GTA and load into story. At this point open up start menu and relink your Social Club.

if problem persists, u might be SOL... not positive, there may be hope

Ok:smile:
If I were banned from using creator it would be on the account I just checked....
It seems to me that they are just messing around with the servers
Probably as a deterrent for dupes
Until they figure out a solid patch:frown:
Same deal on all accounts on both PS4 and Xbox...
When I go to save I get the servers unavailable message:frown:
Definitely a pain in the ar.se...
But not a ban as far as I can tell:wink:

But just now getting a job to save on the servers. I would recommend that we all just sit back and wait before we make any harsh assumptions. Sounds like exactly what you're saying and it's just buggy at the moment. Aren't they also getting ready to release some more drip stuff on Tuesday

Yeah, I have tried about an hour ago, and I still cant save or publish jobs :frown:

hmmmm, none of my content on ps4 & xb1 has been deleted yet....

Nah, I'm not sure I'm banned, but Im getting more certain by the minute :wink: Also, my other PS4 (the left one) is not having the same issues :wink:

I shared a link to my playlist in a thread and 18 minutes later one of those using it told me it was gone. So I checked and it was. Also the playlist was gone on my user and the 16 jobs aswell. So I'm very certain the jobs were deleted. Walking in circles with a rubberband is against the TOS I guess, but giving me a creator ban for it... Thats harsh...

The image I posted you mean? Well, but its supposed to go away, right? And have a click X for OK or something...

i agree, but im curious about T Trond 's scenario... :wink:

i knew you werent banned lol
i checked ur sc :wink:
Can I see if I'm creator banned on my SC? Is that what you're saying?

Still debating what I should do... Drop it and just make jobs on another account, or make a new account, or try to contact support and see what they have to say :/ Its annoying, thats for sure...

Yep, endless loading or instant alert is how a creator ban looks like. Doesn‘t matter if you‘ve publish a modded or non moddded job. Got hit too, not even any modded jobs published. If the support wont solve the ban I‘m really going to quit this game. If they now start to harm people for absolute nothing, then it‘s the point to say goodbye

Ugh, not good :/
I did send them a little tweet at rockstar and support, but I dont really expect any response...
