Pugnessness - Banned 01/30/2016
Warned for harassing members about trading/co-owning their Mothcats, even when they were clearly listed as not UFT/S by their respective owners. Received another warning for trying to trade their Mothcat under the 2-week trading restriction. Received their first infraction after attempting to offer their Mothcat within the 2-week trading restriction to another user despite being warned previously about it. Received their second infraction after attempting to sell their MYO Mothcat for $20 when the original price was $10-- it should be noted that MYO Mothcats cannot be sold regardless. Received third infraction after noting another Mothcats member an offer to sell their MYO Mothcat under the condition that they did not tell floramisa about the sale. Denied the allegation even after being provided screenshot proof of their actions. After receiving at least two warnings and three infractions in under a month, it was a unanimous decision by the admins to ban this user from the group.

Blatantly plagiarized Mothcats features and content even when clearly instructed not to. All incriminating evidence can be found here with side-by-side comparisons to the original Mothcats content.
Update: 03/26/2016 at 10:14 am - Sent floramisa a note claiming a "friend" had logged into their account and plagiarized the Mothcats content, even though there is evidence that they had been taking Mothcats content even before asking for permission to reference the group. Also made a public excuse on the Dakey front page using the same excuse. [Comment Timestamp] [Earliest Timestamp]
DracaKamala - Banned 06/04/2016
Made a journal that blatantly disrespected artist/admin work and openly complained about the pricing. Disregarded the note that their mentor sent them in response to the journal and attempted to guilt trip the mentor after being notified of their poor behavior. Continued harassing the mentor after being told specifically to stop. Had a friend note the mentor involved with an attempted guilt trip. Continued disrespect to the Mothcats admin team (including the mentor) over multiple days.
