|Q: I tried to view a user's forum profile, but instead I get a message saying "The account has been banned or deleted at the user's request". What gives?
A: In many cases this error message is just superfluous and can be ignored, despite that you can't view the user's forum profile in the meantime.
The error message can actually be caused by any of the following:
1 - New user who hasn't been granted forum access from an admin.
2 - Any user who needs to re-validate their email.
3 - Any user who has actually been banned, or terminated their own account.
You can quickly rule out cause #3 by checking the user's main FAC profile page (fanart-central.net/user-username[i].php) -- if you can view the user's main profile page, they are certainly [i]not banned or deleted.
If you need further help you can contact an admin and we can lookup the exact reason for you.
