    Odd thing happened to me...I got a 24 hour ban for the Mafia game.

    ...so, I logged in as Aragorn328. Seemed fine. When I tried to post though, I got the banned message. Odd. This continued. So, I tried to PM a mod. When I tried, I got an error that said something like "You're banned, no PMs for you." This happened several times also. I tried several socks, and got the same results.

    I was allowed to log in with other usernames, but unable to do anything with them, other than change my settings with them.

    Everything is fine now, but it was pretty odd. Any idea what happened?

    If your normal username was banned with an IP ban, your socks won't be able to use PM's or post from that computer.

    But as it was a mafia ban, it shouldn't have been an IP ban.

    If I had to guess, whoever it is that's running Mafia these days slipped up and banned your IP though. In which case, I'm just repeating that guy ^

    Something similar happened to another user recently. Not quite sure what's going on.

    Still, if it was an IP ban, it was odd that I could still log in with other names...

    Thanks, though. Just wondering what was going on.

    Actually, depending on your ISP type, it's not greatly unusual, just uncommon.

    The person running the Mafia Game isn't a MOD so a MOD would have had to issue the ban.

    Hm...even with a static IP from cable?

    If it's a true static IP, then it is extremely unlikely, and probably a board glitch (which is also a weird occurrance considering how bans are handled by the forums).

    When I was a mod I know I tried by banning a sock and it let me edit old messages and create PMs, just not send them. It was really weird.

    Oh, and I was probably the "other user" Raven was talking about. Except in my case I wasn't banned to begin with, apparently. I had something added to my usernotes, and a few hours later a ban screen appeared. I sent in an unban request only to be told that I wasn't banned. T'was very odd.

    *couge*ME*cough* My ban ended, and I could login without getting redirected to the banned.asp page but if I tried to submit a post I got the banned.asp screen, and got a 'ypure banned, no PMs for you' message when sending a PM. It's just a glitch, not the mods getting revenge or any drama, and Kimbal cleared it up shortly after getting involved.

    EDIT, clarification
