My friend masterchoker can't talk to anyone except for when he private messages me. He would ask you but he can't right now and he is worried if he made another account he would get totally banned. Is there a reason he can't chat or is this a bug. Thanks

@ChEsSmAgEdDoN He's been banned from the forums or public chats probably because he insulted other users in some games and he has been reported to moderators which banned him.

Ah ok thanks, will he ever become "unbanned" or is this a permanent thing?

@ChEsSmAgEdDoN Yes it's permanent. You can find more information here or you can contact lichess by sending an email at

I hope it helps :)
