IRC problem
« on: March 10, 2008, 10:31:45 pm »
Hello!

I´ve been trying to connect to your channel, but I only get the message "unable to connect (channel is banned)"

Am I doing something wrong? I'm using sysreset

Please help me! I'm dying to watch KOR!!!

You need to remove the channel from your own ban and ignore list.  Probably you had added it by accident somehow and the interface isn't letting you connect to a channel when you just told it you want to ignore that channel and/or ban anyone in it.

Normally I would say you misbehaved in some way and got banned from the channel, but then I'd think the join error message would be "cannot join, you are banned (from this channel)", instead it says "channel is banned" so it sounds like it's got to be something _you_ did internally, not something the channel admins or the piggies did to you.  Even if you uninstalled it, may apps don't clear out their registry entries automatically and it might have been storing your ignore / ban list there still.  I know a while back they banned a bunch of people who were hanging out in Yue-bing's channel (she is basically a rival of the piggies) so maybe you got caught up in that, but from the error message you get it really sounds like it's something more on your side. 

If you did get caught up in a ban, if you feel it was unjustified you can call up the piggy over Skype (see the instructions on the site) and try to bribe him with gifts, or you can challenge him to a game of shoji, but he won't play with a handicap even if you are a newb so don't think he's easy to beat... good luck if this is the case...

Hello!

I deleted mirc and didn´t install it again for 2 days just to be sure nothing was stored on my computer. Then I tried to download another irc client to see if the problem was the program... so I tried icechat. Well, I really don´t understand a thing about it, but at least I managed entering enterthegame, but when I tried to joing the channel it said I was banned ^_^ (at least it wasn´t the channel, it was me...)

Anyway, I still think it´s too strange to be banned from a channel you´ve never joined, but I´m going to post a message now asking why I was banned... thanks for your help!  ;)
