What is going on?

PS. Just wondering, did "locked accounts" ever used to provide a link to the offending posts, the way is usually done for DHd people?

Nope. Never did. I used to wonder why, but now it's pretty obvious why they don't.

No one ever noticed when I got locked :(

What the heck?

I know he and Bill were having "a chat" on other threads here. And I may be wrong, but they didn't seem to see "eye-to-eye" on some things. So maybe they continued the "chat" with PMs ? And maybe it may not have "worked out" between them ?

I know I being Snipped, Deleted, DH'd and even Locked Out twice. I think Bill may be tired of some of the "negative waves", etc., directed in his direction. As it has been going on for some time.

He seems to have a little less "tolerance" for certain "things". Now Bill and I don't always agree or get along, etc. But I've learned the hard way … one important lesson … After all … this is his show …

As in this case, an account may be locked while a problem is resolved with the member.

I hope this is resolved quickly. Hafen has always been one of the most helpful, wittiest members we have remaining. Bill, you can't keep doing this.

HvS is a mainstay here…what happened to cause this to occur?

This is not a public matter. I am waiting for more information from Hafen.

Hope he can/want return soon!.

As I've explained before, it's not unusual for admins to lock an account while an issue is resolved.

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP21 Jun 2017 2:59 p.m. PST

Why is that necessary?

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian21 Jun 2017 5:22 p.m. PST

It is a gentle but forceful way to get someone to respond to an admin's question(s).

Unfortunately, experience shows that in many cases, people will not respond to admin messages unless we do this.

LOL. Ok, now that one did not catch me by surprise at all. :)

QUESTION

Is Hafen, and anyone else with a locked account, still able to view the content of discussion topics and see what is being said about them?

People with no accounts at all can still click on a topic and see the discussion, even when they can't participate in the exchange, right?

If they log out from their locked account, they can see everything any Basic Member can see.

(I have not heard back from Hafen.)
