TF2 Center ban misunderstanding + how to contact?

Hi,
i took a break from tf2 for a few months and now that i play the game again i noticed that i was banned on tf2center.
I assumed this was because i got banned in csgo and it shows a vac ban on my account (this happened to other players on tf2center as well and they were unbanned). So i decided to make an unban request on their forum, outlining the situation and showing proof that i was vac banned in csgo and not tf2. After about a week, i still didn't get a reply but i noticed that it was read a few times (by tf2c staff), so i decided to contact them using the contact form to request an update on my unban request. This didnt work because the contact form was broken (couldnt select the deparment so i couldnt submit the contact request, this is still an issue: https://forums.tf2center.com/index.php?app=nexus&module=support&section=new). So i decided to message a moderator using the forum messaging service, outlining everything again and asking for an update on my unban request.
The next day, i was totally banned from the forum and cannot access anything in it and cannot contact anyone.

The purpose for me writing this is that i would like to know how i can contact tf2center and clear up this misunderstanding.

EDIT: The reason given for my ban on the website is: "Reason: Account suspended: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯". I am not sure what the difference between suspended and banned is, my guess is that suspended means that because of my vac ban i was suspended and i can lift the suspension upon providing proof that i was not vac banned in tf2. Also, im not sure how to interpret the reason given.

I, for one, think MasterNoob's great, beautiful wisdom is a gift to the TF2 community. Personally, I think you should use this moment to reflect on your own failures.

TF2Center admins kind of blow. They dug up one of my old ass accounts and accused me of cheating because i'm good and have no profile picture. I witnessed someone tell an admin to their face that they would ddos the site and they didn't do anything. They also ban and dox at their own discretion. Releasing any ip for any reason when acting as a public domain is pretty fucked imo.

tf2center admins sent me and 4 other people's ips/dox to a non tf2center admin so that they could blackmail us, then that non tf2center admin posted our doxes on a public pastebin and I ended up getting ddosed.

no but finding a small inhouse with drafted teams will do em 10x better than joining up to a tf2center lobby where all the good players group up on one team, creating a roll that takes 45 minutes to even find enough players to start because nobody will touch medic or try to play on the team opposite the 3,000 lobbies + 10,000 hr lobby lords.

We, tf2center staff, don't mind keeping this thread open for more questions / complaints / suggestions you might have for the site. On one hand i agree with a few of you, and on the other hand i'm loving some of the people playing victim like they were oh so abused by the admins.

so yeah, keep 'em comin', and don't be scared of telling where we failed.
I'm free to discuss it at any time, on discord ( Pitts#6139) and on steam . if necessary i'll make a discord server just for you guys to come and complain at us without getting banned.

But if you guys decide to chicken out of talking about this with the admins, then you can't really blame the staff for fucking up.

PS: For this guy's case, he was banned for cheating in one account ; then using this alt to evade the ban. He also understood the reason behind the ban and I thank him for his patience to talk to me to figure out what was going on. good kid, just needs to stop cheating ;)

Any reason why you gave out a few select user's ip's to a non tf2center admin?

sure - the person i gave the IP address to was to someone who was trying to protect the girl that jrod, rarted and a few others were not only harassing her but also sending around a lew picture of her (she was a minor when the pic was taken) that was not given to them by her not they had the permission to send it around. So I gave a few of their IP's to the friend protecting the girl so he could "scare them off" a lil bit so they could stop the harassment. Of course, it didn't stop and they actually made it worse. But the idea was to keep those IPs between the friend of the girl and the guys to whom the ip's belong.

Unfortunately, our staff has different views and different ways of doing their job, but their goal is to make sure that tf2center is working and that the players are at least a bit satisfied with the site. Like i said before It's not perfect, and some of the staff just doesn't have time, patience or energy to put in for a lot of the shenanigans people try to pull on us.

I know how bad the forums are, how they're not user friendly, how it takes so long to get a reply from the staff and when some times you do get a reply it can come off as rude or arrogant, and depending on what you say to them , it can get you a longer ban.
That's why i suggested the discord server. For you guys to just rant all you want without fearing a ban or being disrespected. It's not a tf2c official discord, it's just you guys let it out for a while there.

edit: im on a shit keyboard and keep making typos.
