You were only kicked ... and you can rejoin just by typing /join #main ... if you are kicked three times then you are banned for 12 hours , but I'm afraid the bot is impersonal in his actions.


Sounds like a job for Optimus Prime ... :P :lol:

Having no idea who Optimus Prime is I had a Google and ...well we don't need Bots who are that intelligent ..they would take us over, but hey he shares my dislike of rap and [shh ... don't tell anyone but] i am not adverse to the odd soap opera myself, so he could be considered ;) 8)

Courtneylol, the IP of your forum post matched the zline on the server and has been removed.
I had to be sure of the issue as there were several bots that connected and looked like normal user addresses.

@Eternal

Please could you confirm you are still unable to connect. You should receive some sort of a message saying why you cannot connect unless it is simply a matter of immediately disconnecting, which seems to happen to us all from time to time.

The Nick Risuena is not registered so if you are using it and anouther user comes in and tries to use it they will be renamed Risuenaxxxx random numbers represented by x.

This will also happen if you get briefly disconnected and reconnected ... and I suspect may be what happened to you.

I do suggest you use /join #support who will help you register your name, once you have logged in ... just make sure you change to the nick you want to register before you try to register (I've seen that mistake made many times :D



At times you will find you can not connect. It may be worth checking what name you have in tools > options > community chat .... if you change it there you need to restart FrostWire before it takes effect.

I hope that helps for now. I'm not saying too much as I fear I might get you a bit more confused

@cutemom21,

Did you actually read the first post on page 1 of this thread?

I am making a guess here, since you have not told us who kicked or baned you. You have not told us what room this was either.

My guess is that you were kicked for this nick which is not, I think, one that sets the tone in #main and may well have been auto-kicked. If this is the case the nick would have been banned but not you ... use /nick and after a gap select a new nick and, on a new line /join #main.

If this is not applicable, please can we have more details.

Okay, I understand why I have been banned and completely agree that I deserved it. (Tried to change my nick to googlefacebookyoutubewikipedia)

But will I really be banned PERMANENTLY?

If that is all you did I suspect a 12 hour ban which should be lifted by now ... If of course you are being economical with the truth, who can say? ;)

Oh wow. It was a 12 hour ban. But I got this message:
***Whisper from chat.frostwire.com:*** You are permanently banned from PeerCommons (Botnet IP address.) Email contact@frostwire.com for more information.
Instead of the Red Ban message. O_O

Yes, that's an automated server-wide ban placed when the chat network is experiencing high numbers of malicious users connecting at the same time.
You can e-mail chat@frostwire.com (not contact@, chat@) and we'll get it sorted for you.
