    If I'm banned, how will I know?

    It's not uncommon to come to BHW and get an error (other than 404). The first thought that comes though my mind is that I've said or done something wrong.

    Those with experience (or know), how do you first learn about your account being banned.

    I'm not expecting it to happen to me, but when I get those errors, it will be good to know one way or the other.

    Thanks.

    i wasn't there until now, but i guess you get a pm with the reason (which you can only read in your email inbox) as you can't access your account anymore

    I was banned for a week once when someone accessed my account and was trying
    to scam another member in pm. Funny thing was It was me who alerted the intended
    victim and the board as I have pm notifications go to my email. Anyway I got banned
    for 7 days and whenever I tried to enter BHW I was greeted with a message saying I was
    banned, the reason (security purposes) and the leanth of the ban which counted down.
    Not that I would attempt to enter clearing my cookies under a different nic with proxies because that's against. Anyway I was warmly greeted back which was verey welcoming.
    the rules.

    Lat week I tried to logon to the site and it said my account was suspended? I was so pissed but then tried to login the next day and all was fine. Then I realized it was one of those generic suspension pages that the host sends to a site for whatever reason and had nothing to do with me.

    I thought it was pretty funny, well, I guess you had to be there...:eek:

    usually phpbb and vbulletin tells you when you are banned that you can't access content. so you try to log out, clear your cookies, and try to login again, and it tells you that your account has been banned so stfu and gtfo, i guess. hope this post won't ban me now :ban:

    That Is what I would like to know, my box is as tight as a noob in the download
    request section. It was the only account of mine that was compromised so if I
    had been hacked why did they not go for my paypal, WMZ, moneybookers and
    every other place I'm a member of. Why just BHW? and what a coincidence that
    they had a fair knowledge of the IM subject that the attempt was perpertrated
    on. Surely Someone with backend access to here wouldn't do that :rolleyes:

    Me too. I started thinking about all of the posts that I had made because I thought that I had been banned.
