Ban from ComputerHope chat...
« on: July 02, 2009, 04:23:44 PM »
Hi,

I accidentally banned myself from the computerhope chat by typing a wrong command.
Anyway, Lostcoast was gonna talk to the admin about unbanning me but i guess he was unsuccessful cause it's been a few weeks now. I feel so stupid about now. But i didn't break rules or anything....

If anyone want to send the admin a email asking them to please unban me (E12FEB38.B5DF5A4F.83C3CFFC.IP) i'd really appreciate it. The address is [email protected]

    The computerhope admin banned you?  What would the command you typed in do?  It must have been pretty bad.. :-\

    hopebot, probably.

    wrong command? you didn't "accidentally" kick hopebot... I mean, it's understandable- the keys are all like, right next ot each other.

    The computerhope admin did not ban me, I banned my myself by accident.
    I think i seen someone use the "!report" and i asked what it did with "!report" in my sentence. But to make it short i banned myself. I however do need the admin to unban me, because i didn't break any rules.

    No, i doubt it. I was banned because i banned myself not because i kicked anyone. Besides i don't think i have the privilege to kick people yet.

    Here's my conversation with Lostcoast on Mibbit after i banned myself. I'm guest_87.

      I did, but it's been a few days and no response. And i'm still banned.

      What can I do, I'm willing to do just about anything.

      You are banned from the channel #computerhope
      Please fix this, it's killing me not being on the chat!

      I'm afraid the only person that can fix this is the admin.
      I understand your frustration but bumping the post won't help, you've sent him a PM and made this thread and that's about all you can do.  Just be patient.

      True, but it's hard waiting 2+ weeks, with no answer.
      Cityscape is thinking "maybe i should get a petition going".

      Hey, but i did find this: http://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php/topic,78943.0.html
      This gives me details on the commands so i don't ban myself in the future. :)
      I highly recommend it.

      I'm still not convinced you can even accidentally do a self-imposed ban from chat...

      Was under the assumption that this ban was removed is it still in place?

      Ok that's what I thought, which is why I didn't comment back on it.

      Glad to hear you're fixed.
