    "It says I'm banned?!"

    Hey all,

    I felt a need to post this topic because I keep seeing people complain about being "banned" from the forum. Most of you have not been banned. That said, in order for us to actively help you (those of you that seem to be affected by this odd happenstance) we need information FROM you. The best way to do it is to either send an email to Support@paganforum.com or use the "Contact Us" form. If you can include a screenshot of the exact error message, great, otherwise, please copy and paste the error message to us.

    There may be a few reasons why you will show up as banned.
    1. Your password is outdated and needs to be reset/changed. Our software keeps track of old passwords and if they are a certain amount of days old, it will prompt you to change it.
    2. Someone was IP banned (usually spammers) and if it was a public IP, this could affect you.
    3. Maybe you were banned for "insert reason here", but this would usually give you the specific reason of why you were banned. If it's a generic ban message with no specific reason, it's most likely a glitch.
    4. It's all a conspiracy.

    Thanks for reading.

    Could always blame me. Most members are at least somewhat familiar with my temper. Maybe I did a whole pile of bans, just trying to get one m*****f***** off the site.


    Technically, the odds are pretty low but it IS a possibility, however improbable.

    Or maybe, you've actually been banned. In which case...fuck off.

    I'm going with the 'it's a conspiracy' option, because it's cool! ^^

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    I'm randomly temp banning people to play with your minds and flush out the sanity smugglers that are trying to keep me from my pizza ingredients.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    You just reminded me of the Cthulu emoticon. Thanks for that

    Its not about finding the "right path" but more so finding the path that's right for you

    Re: "It says I'm banned?!"

    If I volunteer a chunk of my sanity or soul for pizza, may I avoid the temp ban?
