    I was banned a while ago. I looked at the email from Nintendo and it said my ban was "indefinite", will that mean I'll be unbanned someday?

    adjective: indefinite
    lasting for an unknown or unstated length of time.
    "they may face indefinite detention"

    Most likely forever, but..yeah. It means no ETA of unbanning.

    No, and you probably deserved it tbh. Stop cheating in online games.

    Okay, But most people got "Permanent" instead of indefinite on their email though.

    All past instances I'm aware of that Nintendo used the word indefinite to describe bans meant forever.

    Usually an indefinite ban would mean forever/infinite. Don't cheat in online games, kids. It's the dumbest way to earn yourself a ban.

    I don't know. I reckon those that added achievements to their 360 profiles are worthy of a greater amount of pointing and laughing.

    It's funny you say that. A very long time ago when I was young and stupid, I got banned from XBL for doing just that. Modding my avatar skin color to red and getting a high gamer score. Incredibly stupid. Don't do dumb things like that.

    I think they chose that "indefinite" word so you can feel like you have chance to get unbanned, but ultimately won't.
    Its a way to torture you more.

    You could have made it completely stealthy if you cared loosing time, however I never cared 4 that and I still don't play 4 achievements. In fact the guy with most achievements in the planet not cheated can only be the biggest god gamn nerd ever on existence of mankind :).

    I cared more 4 modding other stuff like save hacking 4 ppl on offline games and I made probably the first hacked hex edited theme ever made 4 X360 ages before RGH\Jtag or custom themes apps. I already had all the hex values 4 every bottom bar too and I tested a really huge amount of possibilities and lost a whole day lol

    This is speculation but can't you just change your user to regain access? Or is it the console that gets banned from Splatoon?
