Ok, here is a conundrum - turns out it is possible to add a channel that is neither "dead" nor "alive".
It does not show in channel listing, so i cannot start it, hence not "alive".
But i cannot delete its corpse from my player either (since does not show in the lineup :roll:), hence it's not "dead" either.
Somehow it lingers in a netherworld where it is beyond reach but pollutes my account and players. Creepy, i'n't it?
Most recently that happened to me when i as good samaritan tried installing "Monster Box" from here viewtopic.php?f=34&t=86227
(initially i used the random code provided, today you can use "monsterbox" to the same effect)
And so after forcing "update", it told me channel is installed and... nothing, does not show in the listing. In fact, it keeps telling me it is installing every time i force update check. On all my players, naturally. It's been almost a week and no change.
Now, i have accomplished such feat once in my own pvt channel when i was missing something (say the offline icons). Which was easy to fix, since i could upload corrected bundle. But how about when this is beyond my control, like in this case - am i condemned to life with such monstrosity?! That doesn't seem right...
