have I been banned from the flickrfriday group?

gr37 says:

Hi there,

It looks like I'm no longer part of the flickrfriday group and that I can't join it again (I get "Oops!
Something went wrong with joining the group."). I am going to guess that it's because I made an honest mistake trying to post a picture I didn't realize was taken a couple days before a challenge was announced. I thought maybe I was banned for the rest of the week, but it's been a while now and the admin has not replied to my flickrmail messages, so I am guessing they intend to ban me forever. That seems a bit disproportionate and I haven't received a message or email indicating that I had been bad or for what reason, and the message when I try to join again suggests that maybe it's an error?

Group admins run their groups without interference by staff, who have their hands full with the site, so cannot interfere with disagreements in the thousands of groups. Admins are in charge and can ban members for good or bad reasons or for no reason at all.

That particular group has three admins and fifteen moderators, some of whom are flickr staff. Are you sure you are writing to an active one?
