Hey everyone,

I have been following neowin at least since 2007 and finally decided to join in. I am geek's geek in my early 20's, and have my fingers dipped in almost all* ecosystems(Windows, Mac, android, Windows Phone). I also run by blog at: www.UnderstandingExistence.net

That's it.
:D

I know! I used to think that the day I finally decide to register, all it wold take is me filling up a form.

It turns out, after finding out that my first account was banned after just 1 hello post, when I decided to create a second one to find out what happened. Unfortunately, neowin had put my banned account in a limo like state where in I couldn't do anything; couldn't even sign out. Using ccleaner I managed to flush out my cookies + browser cache and was finally signed out. Created another account and the helpful mod here sorted out everything quickly and decided to un ban my original account and ban the second account. Now, I didn't sign out of my second account quick enough and was again stuck in account limbo. Again ccleaner to the rescue and I was able to successfully sign in to my first account. Phew!

Enough complaining! My first day as a neowin member was certainly eventful.

Well I've never heard of anything like that before so we can assure you Neowin is not a glitchy website. :laugh:

I have been lurking here from quite some time and the only serious problem on neowin which i remember is when their servers got water drenched and neowin went down. :rofl:
I think that the limbo like state(where one cant even sign out) an account enters isn't an oversight, its by design. I think I read it somewhere that neowin is coded in-house.
