    Question Mark

    Hi I was kindly invited to What.cd by a member of this forum. I received the invite earlier today. I then activated the account. A few hours later I tried to log into the account but I couldn't and was given this message

    "Your account has been disabled.
    This is either due to inactivity or rule violation."

    I doubt it is due to inactivity as i had only been a member for a few hours and I did not do anything at all in the account: did not download anything or upload anything or do anything in the forum. Nothing. I can't work out what happened. Is there anything I can do?

    You could try going to their irc network.

    use an irc client, i.e. mirc if you're on windows, or xchat if linux or w/e.

    you'll have to connect to irc.what.cd and join the channel #what.cd-disabled

    Thanks. I have never used IRC before and have downloaded both XChat and mirc. I can't understand how to use them so could you explain it to me please?

    Ok I worked it out. The invite was given as part of a giveaway. Is that breaking any of the what.cd rules?

    find out if the person who invited you is also banned if so..there's no chance of getting your account back

    I spoke to Stewy on their IRC and he seemed reasonable and gave me my account back but disabled my invites, just like the person who gave me the invite

    Well I don't know what transcoding means. I will upload music though, I will just find out about it when it comes to uploading the music.

    In a most basic definition, transcoding is encoding one music format to another. For example, encoding a OGG file to an MP3. However, some transcodes are not allowed. For example, encoding a MP3 file (lossy codec) to a FLAC (loseless codec) is not allowed.

    Basically what you want to do is watch what you upload. There are some tools out there to verify if a given file is a transcode or not. If you're on What.Cd they have helpful guides that will go further into detail than I ever could
