So, what happened?

Coleiosis here.  Apparently when I visited this site today, it says I got banned from the forums.  How?  What happened?  Was there an error?

Therefore, I had to make a new account.

Yesterday, DJ Normality (aka Sharp) was banned from the TMA Discord server. He responded by sending hatemail DMs to some members and posting a ton of spam in the TMA forum (similar to what he did ~2 years ago). I subsequently recycled the forum spam and banned his account.

Also banned some older dormant accounts that appeared to belong to him. Perhaps one of them was banned in error.

@Kyata
Would it be possible to PM me the username of the account you're having trouble logging into? FWIW your Coleosis account's username/email address are in good standing. Maybe try logging in again just in case it's working now. Btw I just sent you a friend request on Discord.

Just wanted to give a heads up that this has been sorted out Smiley!

What happened is that I banned a mix of usernames and email addresses... some of which were very short/simplistic. Turns out that YaBB evaluates banned email addresses as suffixes (as opposed to exact matches). So for example, banning "a@gmail.com" would also cause "this.is.the.letter.a@gmail.com" to be caught in the crossfire.

That's what happened with Coleosis' account. Its email address matched one of the newly-banned email suffixes. As a result, I've unbanned email addresses that are too short/common-looking.

Username bans appear to be exact and not treated as suffixes. So all of those are still in place.

At least this time the site didn't get nuked.  Roll Eyes Good thing I didn't log in hungover again.
