So you've been raiding and dropping lulz all over Second Life, and you were banned by the evil and racist Lindens.
No matter what you do, you can't seem to log back in. Is it game over? Obviously not. This guide will have you back in and dropping dongs on peoples' e-lawns in just a few minutes.
Follow these instructions in this order.
== Make Sure You Are Using The Correct Viewer ==
Viewers that can defeat Hardware-based bans are ShoopedLife
== New Account Time ==
The Lindens ban and disable accounts 99% of the time when they to stop you, so if you get '''AN ADMINISTRATOR HAS LOGGED YOU OUT''' it's safe to say that your account no longer exists. Consult the guideYou are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view. if you forget the proper way to register new accounts.
== Delete the Cache Folder ==
:''Note: Done automatically by ShoopedLife 0.3.0.51+''
You should always do this whenever you are banned. The Lindens like to hide a fake file in your cache that tells your client not to let you login.
*In Windows NT/2000/XP, the cache folder is located in <code>C:\documents and settings\username\application data\secondlife\cache</code> (you can also go to Start > Run... and type <code>%APPDATA%\SecondLife\cache</code> in order to be sent directly to that folder)
*In Windows Vista, it's in the Roaming folder.
Make sure to delete this folder in its entirety.
== Change IP ==
If the previous steps didn't get you back into the game, it's likely that you've been IP banned. To get around this, use the following steps.
* If using Tor, right-click on the little green onion on your taskbar and select "New Identity", wait about 30 seconds and try to log back in.
* If you aren't using Tor, then load up Tor and Proxifier.
* '''NOTE: You should keep in mind that it may possibly take up to a half-hour of clicking on shit before finding a working proxy through Tor.'''
If you really don't want to use Tor, you can change your MAC address which will likely give you a new IP when you reconnect, but this is much more complicated and is handled in a different article. Consult [[MAC Makeup and Drive SN Changer]] on how to do this.
Now that you are unstoppable and unbannable, it is time to move on to our next topic of discussion: How to troll
