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.

      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.

      C'mon quantos.


      join us. Even the most skimpily clad women can do nothing more then coax a furtive glance. It removes their power.

      Warranted there are some obvious down-sides, but I mean, everything has a downside. Take playing in the special olympics, for example. they just won't let you in until you damage yourself either mentally or physically. My solution was to have my brain donated to science and my body entered in the olympics. so as I sit here, floating in what I can only guess to be some sort of protein liquid, and extract nutrients from a tube placed into my spinal cord port, I am directly connected to the internet at large.

      you laugh now, but... ahh.. go away... shoo, rat, shoo... no, don't eat this brain.. go over there, eat wilfred laurier's brain. While your at it find out why I'm in the same brainroom as him. I thought I smelled politician, but I suppose I was more or less surprised that I could smell at all.

      just realized I'm thinking this, so the rat can't hear me. Not that rats understand english very well. I think I projected my thoughts into it because it investigating Laurier. Another close call averted! Now to use my direct internet connection to contact a exterminator and get rid of these vermin....
