I had an account on this forum - I last posted in 2006 lol - Ive resent my password to my email, but when I go to post/reply it says im not allowed and contact the mods! which i also cant do!! :confused:

Can I have my account back? it was called Orange County, Id also like to know why it was blocked/banned, Im not aware of any wrong doing, in fact i hardly ever posted but I loved my account!

Do accounts ceased after long periods of inactivity or something?

Possibly. Or the moderators are just being arses again.

I'd definitely contact a mod directly with PM, if you haven't done so already. Should be no problem after that. Good luck.

EDIT: Uh oh. Looks like I was wrong :/

Your account wasn't blocked, its status is "User Awaiting Email Confirmation". Which is strange because you have posted. Unfortunately, we as moderators cannot change that.

What is the exact message you get that tells you it's not allowed?

I get the email I click to accept and change it, I type in a new one and I log in fine..

Then I get this when trying to post:

Ah well, that matches the user status Orange County has. It has nothing to do with any inactivity or anything.

I'm not sure what causes the problem. I just banned Orange County in an attempt to get it out from the 'Awaiting Email Confirmation' group, but when I lifted the ban, it was back again in the same group.

There's also no record of you being banned in the past that I can find or remember.

I can't do much more than that at this moment. Ideas are welcome.

Looks like the email the confirmation went to is a hotmail account. If you still have access to that account, you could try to find that email and click the link to confirm your address. Short of that, you may need to stick with this new account you made.
