    Irc ban?

    Not really sure what just happened, i was just asking about connecting to the chat and getting voice for my comp via irssi when i just got banned. then got back on via irssi with no voice and got banned again? I think it had something to do with me changing my nick to let me have voice on irssi, but im not entirely sure.

    you were banned because you joined under a different nick, which is against site rules. You failed to answer my question on why you were using another member's nick. So in effect, your ban is not permanent, just something for you to dwell on for a bit. Read the rules, ban will be lifted in a day or so.

    There is no name changing allowed in irc unless one of us Ops give you a alternate nick, in which case you have not done so. Instead of asking for a name change, you decide to join with someone else's nick, that tends to make us a tad bit irate. When your ban is lifted, join with your forum nick only, nothing else, unless you have an alternate nick established. And yes, it would be wise for you to wait until then. Thread closed.
