Board: http://www.traceurs.ro/pk_board
I was updating from 1.1 RC3 to 1.1.4
I didn't start the upload of the new files, but I put the forum in maintenance mode. Then I logout to see if its in maintenance mode.
Now I can't log back in and I get this message when I visit the board instead of the maintenance message: "Sorry Guest, you are banned from using this forum!"

WTF?

i'm not sure why it'd display the 'you are banned' message -- do you have any bans set?

As for maintenance mode -- if you open Settings.php and set $maintenance to read $maintenance = '0'; it should remove the board from maintenance mode
