"Your account has been flagged."

Hi! Has anyone managed to get their account working after that message? A week ago I’ve contacted the github support, asking why it was flagged, but got no response.  Is that the new Microsoft thingie, hinting people to look for other solutions? Because the message is opaque and doesn’t tell what is wrong. Also, I’m using OSX client, maybe that is why my account got closed? :frowning:

Anyway, my software also targeted Microsoft Windows platform, and I had made a few curated repositories with free CC-by and Public Domain video game graphics, which is usable with Windows games too. Maybe a few pre-build Windows executables got infected by a virus? That opaque “flagged” message forces me to make wild guesses.

Hello @saniv 

Thank you for being here. This question is already answered in another thread found here. I’d recommend checking there for your answer. In an effort to keep the Community Forum organized and make it easier for other users to find information, we ask that users continue the conversation in existing threads, instead of opening new ones about the same topic. For this reason, I’ll be closing this topic and you can continue the conversation in the original thread, if you’d like.

Otherwise, another course of action is to reach out to our private support to get this resolved. Unfortunately, we can’t discuss specific account details in the public forum. We apologize for this inconvenience and we thank you for your patience.

Greatly appreciated,
