Okay, apparently i was confused as a spam bot or something (due to a post asking people to solve a Puzzle... didn't know that was against forum rules) and i was "banned." (I'm gmz1023.) I Created this account just to ask if i could get my old account to work again. and have this one deleted. I am sorry if that broke the forum rules, but i do post here for the reason that it is made for...

(I sent the admin of the site a message, but i figured i'd get a better response here.)

It probably wasn't against forum rules per se. Probably more like it was the first post you made and you didn't introduce yourself or ask anything about writing. Spammers tend to just come into the forum, write a strange message that has nothing to do with writing, and go away again. You can see, despite intentions, the similarities between what you did and what spammers do.

Just a misunderstanding. I am sure if you wanted to post your puzzle thing again in this part of the forum, people would be happy to engage!

Whoa, there, folks.

We had some concerns about the link and malicious code... I'm not sure those were resolved. Hang fire a minute here and let's give the Super Mods a chance to weigh in.

The link you posted in your Big-Geeky-Code thread looked suspect -- no one knew whether it might lead to a virus. It's still being discussed so be patient please, someone will respond ASAP.

And in the meantime, stop posting from this username.
