    I did the same thing when I got my VB.
    I wanted to see what the banned message looked like, so I banned myself.
    Access your account through another computer and unban yourself.

    "Sorry. The administrator has banned your IP address.
    To contact the administrator click here"


    Hmmm... what the hell is going on?? I have NEVER even using or touching the ban button during the entire setup so how is this possible?



    Even if I do ban... I would never ban the Admin Account!



    What can I do, how can I accomplish fixing this? This is one of the most stupidest thing I've ever experience.



    I'm kinda new to all of this so do kindly explain in a step by step process. All your support and guidance are well appreciated!

    I am guessing that you banned your own ip because somebody else who was annoying you was using the same isp as you.
