You were probably changed to Guest805273 when you joined after disconnection. The server does not know that your username was disconnected. Either wait a little or type /msg nickserv ghost username password to kick out your nick so you can switch to it.

What WAS the problem exactly though?
Like why couldnt i get in

The main channel was set so that only registered nicks could get in for a short period of time before the poke men were dumped. So we could avoid tons of people coming in, being impatient, asking for ROM links and just generally disrupting the chat and so on. Apologies for the inconvenience caused to you and others who wanted to come on to genuinely talk.

Chances are that the server didn't register the fact that you'd been disconnected and therefore denied you use of your nick as it was still "online" or "active" (usually occurs when you restart your connection/computer). It usually takes a few minutes before the server corrects this but as mentioned earlier you can use the GHOST command to force the server to remove the "active" nick.

So to go along with what everyone has said without a registered nick you wouldn't have been able to gain entry.
