OMG no, that would be giving mods admin power over the site and the server that hosts it....

would YOU give control over your site to anyone?

I can think of only one person I'd give that power to. Actually he's a member of this forum lol

I am glad it's back. I am glad my ip wasn't blocked

It forced me to do the laundry......

Thank you cnredd for a site I am finally learning how to use.

One Saturday morning, I awakened to total silence in our house, and being the lazy teenager I was, this probably meant it was around 10 o'clock am. I got up out of bed, and wandered through the house, no sound to be heard- no voices or giggles (I am the oldest of 4 girls). In those days, my frequent church attendance in the Baptist church kept the subject of the "second coming" on my mind regularly. I somehow convinced myself that the second coming had happened, and I missed the boat.
Turns out that my parents took the rest of the girls for an outing so that I could be a lazy teenager and sleep.
I'll bet for a bit, you're mind was roiling!

Here's a true story that happened to me, from the other end of the religious spectrum.

The day after seeing the Exorcist with my buddy and our dates, my buddy was spending the night at my house (my parents and brother were gone).

About 1:00 am we were both in the front room reading (no TV and it was real quiet) and all of a sudden Cliff gives me this terrified look and says in a loud voice........ "do you hear that?"

I started listening and sure enough......all of a sudden a cold chill ran right up my spine.

Although it was faint, it was unmistakable.

We could hear the theme song of the Exorcist playing.

(Chit...chills are going up my back just remembering it.)

So here's a couple of macho, high school seniors...slowly walking to the back of the house with knees shaking and almost holding hands.

We start toward the back of the house and the closer we get to my room.......the louder the music became.

When I get the courage to turn on the light, it dawns on me what it is.

My clock radio had been set for 1 (it didn't have an am/pm setting), because I had taken a nap after our early morning bowling league.

What are the odds that the damn thing comes on......at the exact same time the music from the scariest movie I've ever seen is playing?

Talked to a guy named "Guy" at their support center...He opened a ticket and someone will look at it...he said there are only 2 other tickets in front of me so it "should" get resolved in an hour or two...
I believe your assumption is correct,I had the same thing happen to me with one of the sites I administered. In my case I upgraded to the premium account and they entered the wrong data and the site went down for six hours..
