Hi Zesty,

yeah, I'm the culprit who's responsible for the disturbance. On Sunday I accidentally used a domain-ban instead of a regular one but noticed that mistake only when I tried to reload the page. So, I've effectively banned myself as well and can't correct the error. I reached out to two fellow admins and hope that they'll be able to reverse it as soon as possible.

I'm deeply sorry for all the chaos!!
You get a ban, and you get a ban - everyone gets a ban!

Oh, so they were talking the truth.
But I remember, that I had a similar problem with getting banned, so I wrote to you on messenger, it was like back in 2019 I suppose.

I think, that the new album might be a great opportunity to do some necessary changes in the forum system, if possible.

But I'm happy, that everything's back to normal, let's hope that it won't happen again, but not gonna lie, there were some annoying spam accounts on the forum lately, some of which I reported myself
Where do I start?

Hi JRSZ!

Oh, so they were talking the truth.
I'm not sure who you mean by "they"?

But I remember, that I had a similar problem with getting banned, so I wrote to you on messenger, it was like back in 2019 I suppose.

Well, I assume it had to do with the domain that was probably unknown/suspicious to me that might have caused that ban. Usually I do a background check on those things before I block domains just to avoid things like that from happening.
This time though, I had multiple tabs open with bots I wanted to take care of and I confused one with the other.

I think, that the new album might be a great opportunity to do some necessary changes in the forum system, if possible.
Funny you should mention that. We are currently working on some updates to the forum as the platform provider released a new version of their software. It'll take some time, though, since we have to tweak the new version's theme because the old one does not work entirely with the new design/features they have implemented.

But I'm happy, that everything's back to normal, let's hope that it won't happen again, but not gonna lie, there were some annoying spam accounts on the forum lately, some of which I reported myself
All the mods are doing their best but sometimes one or two bots slip through the tight net. I proactively ban accounts before they can post almost on a daily basis. But this is nothing like the spam bot blitzkrieg we had some years ago:)

Thought I was banned but Csar let me back in. Whatever. I can't even be a loser correctly.
Uh… everything’s perfectly all right now. We’re fine. We’re all fine here now, thank you. How are you?

Hi JRSZ!

Oh, sorry.
By "them" I meant our crew on the Piku Playground Discord server, as some people were talking about getting banned, etc.

I think, that I might just ask them to bring me their forum usernames to help y'all a bit.

Unless they had very specific email domains, the chances are they just got hit with the same accidental 'gmail' ban that Csar was talking about - which has now been resolved. Get 'em to try logging in, if they haven't already. And if they have, then yeah, send one of the mods a list of their email addresses/usernames and we can figure it out!

Apologies for any inconvenience!

The issue should be resolved. Sandelic told me that you might have to delete your browser cookies which also worked for Kosek. So that's probably the reason for some still not able to log in.
