    More information available here.
  • You receive a Page Not Found error when using the registration form
    Because our registration requires sensitive information, a secure server is used to protect and encrypt your private information. Some browsers have settings that you may have to change to allow you access to these types of pages. You will have to allow SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0. You may also need to adjust your privacy settings to MEDIUM.
  • You have been denied a membership.
    Ebanned maintains a blacklist of past problem users. If you've been denied for having a problematic previous  userid, you may contact Ebanned for a further explanation and instructions on resolving the problems. Ebanned may choose, depending on the severity of your past violation, to deny you a reply or the ability to become a member again.

    If you've been denied based on your credit card, you can see these steps to help you resolve the issue.

Q. I didn't get an email with my password, now what?
A. We process all registrations by human. Under normal circumstances, you will have received your welcome letter within 12-24 hours of your submission. If you did not get an email, you should contact your ISP about possible difficulties on their end. If you are on AOL, make sure your mail controls are set to allow internet email. You can also try sending an email to the administrator to see what the hold up is.

Q. What is taking so long with my password?
A. Our registration process, while simple, is not automatic. All new membership applications are processed by a human and this takes time. If you haven't gotten a welcome letter within 24-48 hours, it's possible your email has problems. You are always welcome to email us to find out the status of your application.

Most information on the registration application is for our records only. We do not provide members with email contact information unless they have been involved in a transaction with each other or in cases of harassment or comments made in a threatening nature. We are very serious about your privacy. Please  read our Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service so you can be more familiar with how this website operates.

Userid's are available in one 1 standard format and can not be changed. Each userid will begin with a capital letter and all additional letters are lower case. Every userid is this way and is unchangeable.

You can send an email to Ebanned asking for your userid. Be sure to include the email address you registered with. We cannot look for your userid, if you don't send us your email. 

If you have forgotten what email you used to register with, provide as much information as possible, such as name or address and we can try an alternate way or looking for your account.

Q. I forgot my password. What do I do?
Do not send us an email asking for your password. For security reasons, we will not send passwords in email. On nearly every page at Ebanned there is a link to have your password sent to your registered email account. If you must email Ebanned for your password, you will get back a simple message with the link to the form to have your password sent to you.

Q. How can I change my userid?
You can't. When you registered, you were asked to choose your new userid carefully because it can't be changed. You are welcome to go through the registration process again to obtain a new userid, but your feedback and auctions will not follow you. You should also be aware that if your current account is past due or there are excessive negative feedbacks, your new application will be denied.

Note that our refusal to change your userid or alter it in any way is not because we don't want to but rather that we can't. Our software is limited and we simply don't have the ability to change or alter a userid.

This service is only available and we can only update current, live, running listings. Closed listings can not be altered in any way.
