By the way, yesterday I may have had one of my accounts (I had three: this one, "Rita", and "see pic") possibly banned. Or bugged. I don't know exactly 'cos I never met this issue before. The program claimed I'd share the same network address with another player in the game, whichever the game would be (including ones I'd try to create on my own).

So I've deleted "see pic" and recreated a new account ("no worries"), which fixed the problem, if that was a problem. But...

I'm curious as to the possibility of having an account banned from playing: is that a thing? is that how it works? and most importantly, why it happened? I can be pretty much of a blabbermouth while playing, which I admit can be annoying, but I shut up if requested to. Sometimes I can drop an F bomb but I usually target fate, the server or the poker gods, not the other players. Anyway...

if that was a ban, and not a bug (which I still suspect it could be), then, should I do something that's not really being appreciated, I'd rather like to be warned ahead of being banned. I've been playing here for about three years and I've never seen that happen, that's why I'm not even sure that's the way a player ban works. It'd allow me to login and chat into the lobby, just not enter or create any games. Which looks like a weird kind of ban.

And if that's a bug, no damage done but here's my report.

This is probably the 4 games/hr feature.

Deleting and recreating your account in the same season is impossible AFAIK also.

Most likely this. The error message is a bit misleading und can't be changed until a new client release.

I would rather see people ignore offensive players even more because banning isn't really sustainable when someone just can make another account but as there seems to be a high demand for reporting maybe it could become a built-in feature to report particular chat messages. high potential for misuse but more user-friendly than writing in the forum and it could work with a limit of chat messages you can report per game. there are many people who don't make screenshots or don't know how to do that or where to post them.

Oooh, I see. And I even find that a good idea, after all. Been away a year or so, I wasn't up to date, thank you. But yes, it definitely needs another message to clearly state what's going on.

I know... I didn't recreate it under the same name, it went from "see pic" to "no worries".
