OK....before we go that route, I realized my "black hole" email address wasn't being checked and was filling up with MySql errors.
Here's what they say:
An error was encountered during execution of the query:
SELECT u.userid,u.username,u.email,u.password,u.usergroupid,u.timezoneoffset,s.sessionhash,u.salt,s.lastactivity,u.membergroupids FROM vb3_user u LEFT JOIN vb3_session s ON s.userid=u.userid WHERE u.userid=3Sbbuserid
The query returned with an errorcode of:
Unknown column '3Sbbuserid' in 'where clause'
What's causing this and how do I fix it as this obviously has something to do with it.
