    As several people have been locked out of their accounts due to receiving a PM, I have disabled PMs for all non-admin users, to prevent it from happening unwittingly (I myself just had my previous backup get locked because of a PM). Just in case I somehow missed a user group when disabling PMs, DO NOT SEND ANY PMS TO ANYONE AT ALL, PERIOD.

    I repeat:

    THE PM SYSTEM IS BROKEN. RECEIVING A PM CAUSES THE BOARD TO GIVE AN SQL ERROR WHEN TRYING TO DO ANYTHING. DO NOT PM ANYONE UNTIL THIS PROBLEM IS RESOLVED.

    Ah, that's what caused it. No problem, then.

    Random member #1: "lol u suk"
    Random member #2: "o u bitch. PM'd"
    Random member #1: "arg my s2b accounts!"

    Taking the PM system out of the equation was a wise idea. Hopefully this setback will be remedied in due time.

    Oh crap, I killed your back up, Super, and HyenaFox. I didn't know. Sorry about that. :)

    That's alright. I was still able to login to the Admin CP and make another account. I can't really do much for the others until Simon comes back and investigates the problem further.

    Would it be possible to get Super a back-up account as well? He asked me, but somthing went wrong when I tried logging in as the account.

    OK, try your original account again, it should let you in now. I *think* it might have to do with some "innocent" persistent database connection setting I modified earlier. Still, to be safe, PM will remain disabled until I find out exactly what happened.

    Mine seems to be working too. I'll now go de-admin "Local_H".

    From what I could tell, either your PM logs mod screwed something up, or you made another PM mod that calls to ibf_members in the s2b database. Either you got the database wrong, or your table prefix wrong. Check your PHP files.
