    I tried to log onto chat (for the first time ever) because i saw Norm was in there but apparently I've been banned without ever having been there. Such a nice, welcoming introduction. :'(

    Jim, what exactly is the error you're getting? I haven't been able to find anything that would prevent you from logging in, but I'm still digging.

    It says "You've been banned" and asks for my username and password. When i type those in it then says;
    "You've been banned"

    I remember testing the Banning with Elite. I banned Phong serval times from Chat, but once he logged back in, it let him in. I don't see any setting on Jim that says BANNED for LIFE. : )

    I've spent a few hours now trying to figure out what's going on. I'll look at it more later, but for now, I'm at a loss.

    I need someone to log into chat. I can Ban them and then unban them I believe.

    Check on all of Jim's group permissions/memberships? Maybe one of them is not enabled for chat? Not a cookie issue?

    Didn't Charles find out the problem on Phong's login? Can't remember the details.

    It was a group problem, but none of us has yet found a similar problem for Jim.

    Dudley,

    Fortunately, admins do not have any special ability to look up user's passwords or otherwise log in as them. Th only way to log in as Jim is to get Jim to provided his password.

    I am sure it is only because someone doesn't like you.


    Shoot pixelpixi a pm. We will get it figured out.

    I have been banned for over a week now. Erin said she had no idea why it happens or how to fix it.
    This sucks.

    I'm sorry I haven't been able to look into it further. I'm planning to work on the site a bunch over thanksgiving break. I'll try to get this fixed then too.
