    i really need to be unbanned b/c someone has permanately banned me which is totally unfair. considering what i did everyone in the chatroom said i shouldn't be banned right before i was announced banned. the mod who did this should realize his mistake, serioiusly. no rules were broken. thanks for you time.

    It was done at some point before. It is added in the bots as a perm ban. Only JJB or myself can go into the bots to remove it. Maybe JJB will know why it is there when he gets back tonight. I will not remove anything until I know who and why.

    dam u really must have pissed the bots off:eek:

    the bots only ban u if jjb has added the address to the ban list. if any outher mod had banned you it would only have been temp + you would have got an explaination as you were kicked.. u (or your isp) must have been put on the bot ban list for a good reason.

    hmm i just noticed the ban is *!*@rdu74-156-217.nc.rr.com
    that means it will ban anyone who's address ends @rdu74-156-217.nc.rr.com it may have been someone else was banned who uses the same isp as u. it has happened before (all @aol.com address were banned:mad: )

    Maybe it was an error. But for some reason, I do not think so.

    I may be wrong.

    Bots have logs , xsivforce try to search for this hostmask in the logs and see the exact reason.

    I don't know for sure what the reason was for the ban, however, I do know almostfamous88 was acting like a retard on a few occasions in the chat room with floods and stuff.

    I didn't ban him or request the ban, however, if he comes back he's behavior had better improve.

    just a warning

    If you're banned, its for a reason.
    Simply telling us who placed the ban would resolve this a heck of a lot quicker.

    I'd say that ban is pretty specific.
    If it was *!*@*.nc.rr.com it would be a quite different story.
    anyway...i couldnt resist a comment :)

    yup if it was an isp mask as you say, then it would probably be a mistake, but its an actual IP based hostmask, so unless almostfamous88 is really unlucky and keeps dynamically obtaining that IP, its going to have been a specifically placed ban

    The bots only kick on flood they don't ban. And the bots don't perm ban on their own. You must have pissed someone off enough to request perm ban. Until we can find out what's going on, I don't think the ban will be lifted.

    Some of the notes listed on that ban include:

    1) Bashing or Flaming against the site and its staff
    2) Impersonating an Operator/Team Member (Using nickname "epunk")

    Both of these are listed in the IRC Channel Rules as bannable offenses. The ban has been removed, however further violation of Chatroom Guielines will result in re-banning
