Announcement

Due to the high number of false-bannings lately, I've taken down Akismet, and am opting to manually approve new members. If you're a new member and want to expedite the process of being upgraded in member status, shoot me an email at noface@vicsage.com. I'm hoping to find a better solution in the near future....

I've been banned

Hello all,

My new Forum identity of Squashy Josh has been banned from the forum. Can someone please explain why?

Many thanks,

Jazz.

Re: I've been banned

Now you're unbanned and qman is too!

Apparently, the Akismet plug-in/"Magnus" has stepped up it's security in the past week. Sorry!

Re: I've been banned

Yeah, as Eric can attest to, that has happened to me several times.

Re: I've been banned

It was no accident. I was hoping to finally wrest control of Magnus away from Eric so I could finally control the vicsage.com forums, but my plans have been thwarted time and again!

You, much like the villain from Wacky Races (don't know why I chose to make that reference out of all the many I could have made), shall never over take the forums!

Re: I've been banned

When I first was told I had been banned by Akismet, I actually thought it was a new moderator that I had missed in my time away. I was in the process of planning some horrendous coup  on the lot of you, but then Eric made it all better and I realised that it was all the machines fault. If we are not vigilant, soon, they will rule.

A friend of mine bought Wacky Races for the Dreamcast a long time ago just because it was the last Dreamcast game in town that was still sealed and brand new. He'd have been better off setting his $30 on fire.

That said, I was trying to make a MGS4 allusion. Eric is the Patriots, see, and vicsage.com is the John Doe AI.

Oh, I forgot that there was a Wacky Races video game! I was thinking of the cartoon.


Well, if Eric is the Patriots, and the site is John Doe, than who are you? Sna- Wait! I was going to take that into one direction, but then it occured to me.... Magnus is the Patriots!!! (Look at us, rambling away)

Re: I've been banned

Well, it seems that the vengeful God Akismet was not pleased with your pitiful spam-bot sacrifices and has decided to ban me not once, but twice! In one day. I suggest offering up some virgins next time. Or a goat.
