I am a longtime lurker and wanted to keep in touch with CJR238, but he informed me that he was Silent Banned. Why is this new leadership doing this kind of stuff? It's insulting behavior against someone who has done so much for all of us. Stop with the silly games. Some of us just want to talk with friends here.

I know the previous leadership did this, but let's move forward and stop this nonsense.

There was a permissions issue after they adjusted the users that stepped down to remove the admin/moderator permissions I believe... It caused some access issues to certain areas and some odd behavior so perhaps that's causing issues? .a lot of stuff is moving and being worked on so some glitches are to be expected. If he is having issues he can send us a note and let us know so we can look at it.

I just messaged CJR about this, apparently his account has been disabled - it doesn't look like he left any extra contact information in his farewell address, he was going to PM you about it but doesn't have access to his account at the moment.

Here's a screenshot of what he's seeing when he tries to access it:

I'm guessing someone went into his account settings inside the XenForo admin control panel and set his account status to "Disabled" from "Valid" - effectively making it inoperable.

I have no further information regarding this, whether it was intentional or a mistake, and I am not going to speculate and neither should anyone else, but I imagine @PY004 and the new administration will look into this for you.

As a side note, why would anyone want to keep in touch with CJR? :lol: I know, I'm one to talk right? Just kidding anyways. Trying to lighten the mood, it's time for the community to come together and start healing from everything that has happened recently.

It was obviously some kind of mistake I’ll look into it. This same type thing happened to me a while back and it wasn’t banning it was simply the system. Cjr May have changed his email. If he did that could be his issue.

Possibly regarding the email thing, though I think that would throw a different error - "Awaiting email confirmation", I re-enabled all the logging features before we transferred the server so if you go into his account settings you can check the "User Change Log" section to see what exactly happened.

I can assure you that we did not disable his account before the transition - he was part of that administration, although thinking more about it I wish I had, :lol:... but yeah I don't think he goes on ERF anymore after the controversy over there.

Ya you’re a good guy CJ you helped me back in the day. I fixed your account now so go log in and send me a text if there is anymore issues. You fixed mine when I had this issue the other day so I got to return the favor. Hahah

Thanks

I'm back on WhiteDove, thanks for checking in on me! Yeah I don't participate on ERF much anymore.

It must have happened with some of the tweaks and work being done on the form.

Oh man, don't I feel like an ass now! I'm glad you still have old acquaintances that can speak out for you to get this worked out. Very clever of @whitedove to reach out on your behalf. Glad to see you here!!!
