I could not figure out how to change my keyboard layout from Workman (which I have been trying to learning) back to QWERTY. Google found no results for my query (it usually automatically corrects wrong layouts) and I resorted to asking in chat. Sadly I was flagged many times and my chat account was suspended.


As you can see, I was just confused. Is there a way to reverse this chat suspension?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Maybe you should actually type in a real language, lol. Go through the alphabet until you find the letter you're actually looking for, rather than typing based on the keys from QWERTY when you're using a different layout. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this doesn't help future readers because hopefully it's common intuition not to type gibberish, regardless of whether or not there's a keyboard layout change. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Why did you think typing in workman in chat was going to help? Just use a different device to look up your problem or carry on trying to use Google \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @BetaDecay I have no idea. This happened over half a year ago. I shouldn't have made a meta question for a suspension this short. \$\endgroup\$

Workman or no Workman, you littered TNB with gibberish. One of your posts got flag-deleted, which results in an automatic 30 minute suspension.

The suspension will wear off in 10 minutes.
