Sorry, I don´t know if you have talked about this before..
But..
What is that "test" account in Live Chat?
He/she writes in green and sometimes impersonates Steve Vai.
But we all know that Steve´s real nick is ALWAYS (and I mean ALWAYS!) ssv, right?
But some guys really believe it´s Steve because test makes them believe that he/she lost his/her password and is now using the test account..lol
Lots of people around here know the test password.
So why don´t you guys (admins?) delete it?
What´s the use of it? It just confuses newbies like me..

Impersonating steve is NOT COOL!.

And from what a previous admin told me, IP addresses are logged and can be matched with the forum accounts, so besides being not cool, it's also galactically STUPID.

Weather or not the IPs are logged no one is at fault for using it. The Admins for Vai.com knew it was there and should of taken it off. No matter how anyone puts it, Hacking is by-passing a password protected area without owners consent. And we NEVER DID THAT. So you can have all the IPs in the world and it does you no good.

Everybody who is in chat knows Test is not Steve! Including Jeroenn and Naffis Kun. Alot of different people use Test obviously, and from what I see everything is in good fun. People who believe some of the things people say in there will believe anything. Steve always appears as SSV and thats it. You guys are taking this Test thing way too serious.

Sorry, this is the biggest bullshit around. You are supposed to use your own account. You know that Green accounts including test are not for nomral use. Your defenition of hacking is offbase and off no use what so ever. Don't fuck around with it, and don't impersonate. Don't access the test account, because you can assuume it will throw people off. How difficult can that be to understand??

Yes!
Even though I know it is not Steve, that doesn´t mean you are free to use that account.
No one should never use it, because I know there are some people who think it´s really Steve ´cos test writes in green.
I have to admit, that I first thought it really was SSV, because of the green color.
And I think no one except SSV and Mikey is allowed to write in green!
And that´s final. Do not believe test, there are about 20 people around here who know the test password.
So newcomers, be aware of impersonators.
As you guys already said, Steve appears ONLY as SSV.

Yeah - I'll do something about it once I'm back in LA. The chat isn't hosted on our server which makes changing things slow sometimes.

The current Vai chat is going bye-byes soon anyway.
