    I apologize for being so hasty natured. I sent another message before I went to bed which I thought he had read when I checked in this morning, but perhaps I was groggy and should have waited it out. Also all the IVs were and egg moves were there so I wasn't sure if it was a fast one. He has messaged me again and we are setting up a new trade. Once again sorry for the hastiness, and I hope I haven't offended your reputation!

    first off im sorry if this is the wrong place for it but I dont know an beter place to post it either

    an user named Victini is asking for codes for certain event pokemon in the simple requeswt thread yet in the past he did something simulair to scam me of an hoopa code

    it lasted a long time and in the end I decided to not report him since it went on for such an long period of time and the pokemon was availeble for everyone later (which I wanna add we didnt know at the time I gave him the code)

    im over it but I want to prevent that he scams someone else so I decided to still speak up even though the last contact till today was from june.

    its not that i want him on the blacklist perse but I do want to prevent others from being scammed

    edit: some more info what exactly happened

    october 2015 I gave him a code to softreset a hoopa the deal was i would get an copy when he resetted an good one

    I asked for updates multiple time but he always had an excuse

    by the time of june 2016 I still had nothing and didnt hear anything

    the 2 or 3 updates I ahd I had to ask for myself unlike what whas promised and it was pretty much too busy didnt have time

    in the end he did offer a refund but since hoopa at that point was availeble for anyone thru wifi that was useless because there was no value anymore and I didnt trust him to be fair about it anyway

    so hopefully I can prevent him from doing the same to other people I get that you cant guarantee anything with sooftresets but he kept me hanging and hanging and I would have never gotten it

    Do you guys have a provider who's IGN in X and Y/OrAs is Whitney? Claims to be a Smogon Provider and traded me a shiny Swoobat with Perfect IVs in Wonder trade. Just curious if I should be suspicious. (It says it was hatched BTW)

    Aside from the fact that this shouldn't be in this thread (try this one next time), anything at all obtained from Wonder Trade should be treated as suspicious, especially a flawless shiny - regardless of who you think you may have got it from (also curious to know why you think they're from smogon but don't know their username?)

    sorry. Kinda new to the forums.

    And the reason I ask is their message said they were a Smogon Supplier. Thats why I ask if you know them.

    Edit: Don't know FC (denied a request which was intent to keep tabs) and their IGN (6th gen) was Whitney. Aside from being a perfect shiny nothing else was weird.

    Whitney is a known hacker i also got a Shiny Ghourgheist with 6 perfect IVS from him. Every Pokémon you receive from him is hacked.

    Hi, is this where I appeal for being put on the hacker's list?

    Less than a week ago, i participated in a GA in which some one gave me a mon, and i give them a trash mon in return. I gave an event tyrunt with good nature and was perfect in IV's. This event tyrunt was attainable over two years ago; I was not a player that had any interest in VGC, or trading/giving away mons, so i did not record proof.

    I had no clue what the Tyrunt's IV's were until i moved it to S/M, I did not know it using it as compensation for a GA would get me banned. I returned the player's mon and retrieved the Tyrunt I had as well. I expressed I am not a hacker an apologized for the inconvenience.

    I have been labelled as a hacker, and it hurts because i have been on this site for years; I have never thought it honorable to hack any pokemon. I am avid about joining GA's and GTS GA's because i cannot attain such good pokes on my own easily; I am always saying 'yay' to mons holding items. I self bred every comp mon I have, the only shiny i have bred in S/M was an accidental togepi with - s.atk.

    I have plenty of event mons, but i dont trade them because i dont have proof; i give them away to players for other event mons. Tyrunt was literally the only good natured, good iv'd event mon I owned.

    If you check my trade history, I ga'd a br rufflet. A rufflet that took me 2-3 hours to breed. I finally prepared some more GA's recently, but a mod stated I am on the hacker's list, so I cant give them away. I can't believe I am on this list; I am literally trying to give away a wild shiny finneon, and a ht'd shiny crabrawler. I take pride in the effort I put into my pokemon. These pokemon arent good, they aren't valuable, they dont have good IV's/nature.

    If i was a hacker, i would be spending my time making better mons than these (that i spent hours on just to GA). it is upsetting to be on a hacker's list when I can't hack. If i was a hacker, I would not be so stupid as to deliberately make a 6 iv event mon and then give it away to a driver. I am a coherent, able adult. I realize that because I have no proof for the tyrunt, it is hard to label as not hacked. but i do not have access to the tools needed to do so. I have been living in a small town in China for the past year and a half; I use the internet via a 7ish year old computer in my room. I asked my girlfriend to order me and my son S/M because i cant navigate Chinese websites.

    I have no interest in hacking, I only want to hunt and GA's mons in the community most RNGer's believe they are too good to GA themselves. This is how me and my son pass time.

    Is there any way to get off this list? I really do not like false accusations, especially when my only fault is being criminally under-prepared to defend myself. I have a deep love for the Wifi room and a clean tenure in PS. I have not the means or capability to hack, but I am sorry for giving another player what was deemed to be a hacked mon.

    Please, tell me what can be done?

    This is the Smogon Wifi blacklist, not the PS Wifi Blacklist. The two are completely unrelated.
    The forum that you're looking for is here.

    Sorry for the double post ;-;

    Username: LegoFigure11
    IGN: LegoFigure11
    FC: 5000-7350-3079 (If this appeal is unsuccessful then you should probably add this to my listing)
    Reason for blacklisting: Lied about the legitimacy of their heavy ball Beldum and traded/distributed them.

    It's been a little over two months since my blacklisting, and that time has given me the opportunity to not only reflect on my decision to breed using hacked parents (thus violating the rules of this section and hence being blacklisted) - and I should note, it was a decision that I deeply regret - but to also prove my worth as a member of wifi in hope of being re-accepted into this community. Since my blacklisting, I have contributed here both indirectly and directly to several facets of the wifi community, and some examples of this are listed below (more can be provided if required, but I wanted to keep this post fairly concise):
    • Active and helpful in the TSV thread (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
    • Helpful in SQSR (1, 2, 3)
    • Helpful in RNG Help threads (1, 2, 3 (this was followed up with an explanation on PS))
    • Helpful on #smogonwifi IRC (1)
    • Helpful and active on #smogonwifi Discord (No logs of this but feel free to drop into the server if you need examples, you won't have to look to hard)
    In addition to that, I also notified TheMantyke of inaccuracies in the OP of the simple hacks thread, have taught notable wifi users such as Max. Optimizer how to check ESVs (allowing them to further help the wifi community), helped Swampy set up homebrew in order to perform Gen 7 Egg RNG, hatched several eggs matching my TSVs for other users, taught PsIana how to do XD Gales RNG (via Discord PM, they can verify this if required) and am in the process of teaching another user how to do Gales RNG as well. I'm also in the process of cross checking some data for Shiny Finder's website PokemonSlots, which benefits not only the Smogon Wifi community but the RNGing community worldwide.

    I sincerely hope that the fact that I have continued to make meaningful contributions to the Wifi section despite being Blacklisted, combined with the fact that I offered immediate compensation for anyone whom to which I traded a Beldum are enough for me to earn myself a spot on the probational blacklist rather than the full one, and if they are not then pointers as to how I can be placed there would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time :)

    Moved to probational, let's be real you're more helpful than most people not even on the BL, just no more heavy ball mons from you.

    rj sez: I agree. No moar Heavy Balls for you.
