    i tried registering at the sosuke forums because i had an issue with my eziv which noone seem to be able to help me here and i fill out the initial registration
    i click submit and the page just refreshes
    only at the top it says my email has been banned...

    WTF

    ive never even registered at the sosuke forums and i think i'd notice if i got a confirmation email for joining the forum(which you always get)
    does anyone know whats up with this?

    Home, WhereElse?
    Is your email one of the free ones like hotmail or mail.com or otherwise?

    They're obviously banning your email provider. Lot's of forums ban various freemail providers. It's more than likely that their admin doesn't know how to affectively combat spam bots and has blanket banned freemail providers as a stop-gap measure. Try another provider or an email address from your ISP.

    You're all probably right, I use Hotmail and I got the same result trying to sign up a few months back. Figured there was probably a blanket ban on Hotmail (or someone just plain doesn't like me [​IMG] ). Didn't see the point in making a whole new email address just to say that some of the "non working" homebrews (namebly StyxDS) actually do work on an EZ-V with the right DLDI patch.

    Try using a school e-mail, or maybe a gmail might work.

    I have not banned people (I lack the ability anyhow) but I would try not using the free ones. The spam over there has got fairly bad of late so we are waiting on an upgrade to the new version of the forum software.

    Thanks for the info though, the new EZ4 and EZ5 DLDI files have made life pretty good and more confirmation is nice.
