Well, it would appear I am back. Facebook is allowing links to Sethen.com again!

OK, so I just attempted to share a post from a Facebook Page to the TRC Facebook Page. My account was immediately locked, and I had to answer a bunch of questions to get back in. And for the 3rd time in a week, the TRC Facebook Page was unpublished. This is what it keeps telling me:
It looks like recent activity on your Page doesn’t follow the Facebook Page Policies. If you think your Page was unpublished in error, you can appeal and we’ll take another look.
I’ve done NOTHING wrong. AT ALL. HOW is sharing a simple goddamn Facebook post (that was fine on the page it was on) a violation of anything!??
So, it has come to this.
Today, while doing regular updates on TRC, the Facebook account I’m currently using to keep my pages updated was temporarily shut off, and I had to answer a slew of questions to prove I was me. I managed to get back in fine after a few minutes.
A little bit later, the TRC Facebook Page was unpublished. It says due to recent activity, we’ve been found to violate some shit. Which is fucking ridiculous, as the only activity in the last WEEK was me sharing posts from other Facebook Pages. I appealed the decision, but who knows how long that will take. So for the time being, TRC is essentially crippled as most of our viewers are on Facebook.
I then ran into an issue while updating some other websites. Found that all of my WordPress sites that auto-post to Facebook have stopped working. I worked for an hour trying to reconnect them, and it just won’t fucking work. Keeps giving me a generic error, with no explanation what-so-ever. So now my websites, and the Stonington Public Library are directly affected by this.
I’ve had it. I’m exhausted. I don’t even know what to DO about any of this anymore. Facebook won’t give me the time of day.
If anyone has any ideas, suggestions, or plans of revenge, I’m totally listening…..
It happened again. On Monday, my Facebook account was disabled. This time, I was an hour and 20 minutes into streaming Minecraft! I was just shut down out of nowhere. It messed my stream up, as it kept running for a day before I figured out how to stop it.
To recap, here’s the short story of whats happened, thus far…
My account was mysteriously disabled. The account had been active for well over 10 years, and I had no idea why. I submitted a ticket to have it looked into, and the only response I got was that I had been found ineligible for Facebook, and that due to their policies they couldn’t even tell me WHY. Also, it was a final decision. I made a new account under my name, as I was kind of responsible for managing 2 pages and an ad campaign for work.
The day after I was laid off from Beal College, my account was disabled again, same story. I still have a theory this one was triggered by Beal ripping my admin access off of pages, and not removing me from the business manager account. I submitted another ticket, and decided to wait for a response.
After never getting a response, I made a new account with my name. I woke up the next morning, not 24 hours later, and the account was already disabled. This infuriated me. I hadn’t even posted anything, or connected to more than 5 friends. I waited a few weeks and decided to make a new account using my middle name, Dolan, instead of Barden. A few days after creation, I was temporarily disabled and had to send them ID to prove I was me. I did, and a few days later my account was back on. Everything seemed to be fine finally!
We started our new survival world on Minecraft on May 13, and we were all streaming to Facebook. About an hour and 20 minutes into my stream, my window suddenly reloaded, stream cut off, and I was disabled yet again.
I have no idea why any of this is happening to me. I’ve read through their terms four separate times, and I have done NOTHING to violate them in any way. There is no way to talk to a person, and every time I submit another ticket I get the same “Thanks, but you should go pound sand” response.
I honestly think I’m done trying at this point… Which means everyone is going to have to text or call me for communication 🙁
Yesterday, I got brave and decided to make a new Facebook account. I had been waiting for a month for a reply about my account being disabled, and got nothing. Not a word.
So I made the new account. Added it to my pages, and sent a bunch of friend requests. I got up this morning to find it had already been disabled, with no rhyme nor reason, yet again.
I’m so sick of this 🙁 I did nothing wrong… And I need Facebook to run pages and communicate with people. I just don’t get this!
I’ve submitted yet another new ticket using a form hadn’t seen before. We’ll see how that goes. If that doesn’t get me anywhere, I found a website that lists contact info for several higher-ups in the company. It suggested emailing them one by one to see if you can get a response. I may look into that…
I’m also contemplating trying again, using a different name. Sigh.
I have made some changes! I have overhauled all my gaming usernames and setup a new Facebook Gamer Page – SuperSethen!
I’m hoping to start streaming some more games, as I have all the time in the world being unemployed currently 🙁
Follow my page on Facebook, as that is where I will be streaming! I will post links to the website when I’m live as well 🙂
The last week has been pretty crazy.
On the 1st of February, I was laid off from Beal College, as they eliminated my position. I’m still coming to terms with the shock over this… I loved my job! I did it very well, everyone was always praising me. My coworkers loved me. We got a new boss, and I guess he didn’t like me. My position was eliminated and I’m out the door.
I’ve never felt so betrayed by any of my employers before 🙁 I gave everything to that job, did my best, and it still wasn’t enough. It just makes me feel pretty damn worthless at this point.
Then, to add insult to injury, Saturday morning my Facebook account got disabled again. Once again, not a single clue as to why – and no response from Facebook. I’m wondering if it had something to do with being laid off this time. After I was laid off, I was removed as an admin from several Facebook Pages & Groups.
Unfortunately, Beal had a “business” account for managing their ads and crap that was separate. I have a feeling I wasn’t removed from that, and it threw up some suspicious flag on my account where I was no longer an admin on the pages. Who honestly knows.
So now I’m back to screwing with unemployment again. It’s already messed up, as my denied claim from after Sierra hadn’t run out. It isn’t seeming to let me add a new claim, says there’s an issue, but won’t tell me what the issue is. I’m going to have to call them up, and I’m not looking forward to it AT ALL.
So that’s where I am right now. It isn’t the greatest of places.
I never figured out why my Facebook account got disabled. They refused to tell me, and as best I can tell I did nothing wrong. So who flipping knows.
I created a new account, and so far nobody has cared. I’ve decided not to bother re-creating my WayFar Design and Minecraft Facebook Pages, they had very few followers and I don’t wanna take the effort to set them back up honestly.
If anybody needs my new account, here’s the link.
I just received this from Facebook:

Unfortunately, for safety and security reasons, we can’t provide additional information as to why your account was disabled. We appreciate your understanding, as this decision is final.
