Help me?

When your nation is deleted, should the Jolt account connected with the nation go too, or does it stay?

My guess would be no, but if yes, then somebody's made a mistake.

Yes, the Jolt account should not be able to post here. Don't know if it actually gets *deleted* or not though.

If that's the case then either the nation Ankhmet was deleted accidentally (possibly,but I'd just been given a two-week forumban) or you need to stop the Ankhmet account from posting.

It wasn't an accident.

Forum accounts are not deleted when a nation ceases to exist (whether by time or mod action), but they are permanently banned. This prevents other people from creating independent Jolt accounts in the name of former players.

Every once in a great while, we'll institute a forumban and then forget to lift it before deleting (and permabanning). When the temp ban expires, it overrides the other ban and reinstates the account. That's what happened here, and it's now been fixed.

Er... Thanks?

Unsure of the correct response...
