Woman's name + 3 numbers

As our regular chatters may have noticed, we've had a string of... pests entering our chat of late. Very consistently, they come in with screen name that includes a woman's name followed by 3 digits (for example, Myrtle329, or Brittney857).

In order to keep chat flowing, many of the mods are attempting to preemptively ban them, and we're using their screen name formula to catch them.

If you have been an unfortunate casualty of this, please let one of us know, either here or in a private message, and we'll be happy to reinstate you.

Thanks, all, for your patience.

Too bad there isn't a way to temporarily block accounts like this until they talk to a mod before they can chat authenticateing them before hand.

That probably why I'm getting authentication failed when I try to login it is part of my email address and also adds up to my age.

I'll bet that's exactly why. I'll reverse that ban when I log into chat in just a few minutes.

Sorry about that!

That is a forum/site issue, not a chat issue.

I wondered why I suddenly could not log in. Is this still a thing? I sent a pm to puzzlepieces, but I figured I should also post here. I am not a bot!

JM and Anna --

Since the bots have been vanquished, and we haven't been banning those names in a couple of months now, I don't think your problem is that you've been banned.

Looking at what time you both posted here, I would bet that it's because you tried to enter chat at a time when it's been documented that maintenance is occurring, and no one can get in during that time. Try at a different time, and I suspect you'll be able to enter chat.
