It's not a glitch. The staff of BI have disabled it as we have abused it. They said they are checking everyone's VM and they said it'll be back as soon as possible. Even if you haven't broken the rules everyone's VM privilages get disabled. Remember the saying "It only takes 1 or 2 to let everyone down." and I think we should keep that in mind. If you want to communicate with others freely we should do it more safely. With more freedom comes more responsibility.

The purpose of this forum is to discuss BABV and BABW. VMs and PMs are given as a courtesy and a privilege. This forum serves over 8000 members and there must be rules to maintain order and safety for our members.

I'm sorry you feel inconvenienced. This staff is made up of 100% volunteers, taking time from our real lives and real families. We do this to protect all of the members and to try to make this a safe, fun environment where people can come together to share an interest.

When VMs and PMs are removed, it is with a very good reason. We do not do this without careful consideration.

JessbearHug post a Note that they are having little problems, they will be fixed soon.

They weren't little problems. The VM privilege was abused and we are cleaning it up.
-pandyma618

she said this:
Please be patient - we are aware, so please do not fill our PM boxes asking about it.

Yes, rules were broken. Yes, the VM privilege has been abused. Yes, it was widespread.

It will take some time for us to go through all of it.

Yes, you will eventually get your VM privileges back if you were not breaking the rules or abusing them - and yes, we know who you are so please don't PM us to tell us

We will let you know when VMs will be returned as soon as we know, so please do not PM us to ask.

Thanks.
