No idea what happened Josh, but we'll check into it immediately. Which other accounts are affected?

Not sure why, but your account status changed. I set you back and merged your part 2 account back to the original one. I've also fixed Katshot, BlackOutSpecV, Brougham, and Caddy man. I'm not sure who else is affected but I'm working on it.

Edit: Got you too airjigga25.

Hmm - it seems that the members with this problem revert back to the incorrect setting. Sal is going to have to change something I don't have access to. Sorry guys - have patience and we'll get you hooked back up.

Edit: Add hcvone to the list as well.

I was just going to say that the first thing I saw when I got here was a big white screen with a you do not have access or something like that but then I saw my name on your list. It's still messing up a bit.

Sal's not around right now for me to ask, but from what I can gather he made some changes in member access to certain sections in order to eliminate certain restrictions. Somehow, the group of users with more than 50 posts who have been registered here more than one month and who are not Supporting Members, Moderators or Administrators got shifted to a *very* restricted status. This was unintentional - what was intended was to give all the other "regular" members equal status to the group above. Anyhow, I have tried to fix it temporarily but it could revert back again. Sal will fix it when he returns I'm sure.

Sorry for the inconvenience. It's nothing any of you guys did.

I understand. It's good that you are helping out sal. I understand how much time and effort goes into keeping a site of this size running. I cannot personally thank the whole cadillacforums team enough. Espically sal for getting it started

Nope, nobody getting banned or punished in any way...just a "glitch". Thanks for the kind words guys.

god damn , i was sitting out here yelling at my computer screen "me too me too " but i guess homer and sandman couldnt hear me , treid setting up a new account called "revrend_stonecaddy" i FUBARd the e mail addy , so that log in will never work so if someone knows how to delete the damned thing it would be appricated

i figured for sure i got banned , i reset my cookies and everything to at least get into and look over the forums to see if anyone was MIA and stumbled across this thread , so then i was just trying to give a shout out to say "HEY IM IN LIMP IN MODE!!"

ok im cool now

Basically, in the process of doing some behind the scenes adjustments for the newer members, a large group of our more established members had their status go into "limbo" - they were still "on the system" but without any status at all. Once Sal was able to find them in the database he was able to restore them to their original settings.

We do apologize for any confusion or frustration on the part of the members affected. We know you expect the CadillacForums to be user friendly and work properly every time visit the Board. Our goal is to make that happen. This was just one of those little speed bumps you run into from time to time...

Yes, definitely some sort of bug in the system... Hopefully we'll be upgraded before anything like this needs to be done again...

"I'm gonna be out of town for the next two weeks. After that...when do you wanna do it?? "

ok thats a good thing , have a few assignments to take care of for english comp class ...ok maybe nov 15th , ill check to see what cars shows are going on , and i will pick a location after i do that , there is one show a month he does that open to anything , i guess its ususly at the checkers on the corner of dale mabry and fletcher (or is it fowler) . ill put word out in the next week or two after i get this all figured out , but ill post a thread and see how many tampa/central florida area guys wanna go , id like to get into one of the open shows , thats way it isnt just us cadillac guys , we will have a variety of things to go look at

ill make a excpetion for sand man tho , he can bring a SY-TY if he would like and doesnt mind me drooling on it for hours at a time
