    This corrects the logic for turning off flag 4G if a user with level 99 answers 'no' to the 'Ask again later' question about creating a Guest/Anonymous user account.

    Um, no it doesn't. It's a bit-flag, not a boolean.

    Hmm.. ok. I kept getting prompted even after answering "no" so I added that and it correctly set the flag. You might want to try and duplicate it on your end.

    Ok, I found your js object documentation. For some reason the bit is not being flipped with the above statement.

    It's not obvious to me what you think the problem is. These U_FLAG* macros (offsets into user.dat records) are not to be confused with the UFLAG_* macros (bit flag definitions). They're not used inter-changeably.

    Ok, it just looks kind of odd to me; the 'field values for system.matchuserdata() section.

    var U_ALIAS =0;
    var U_NAME =U_ALIAS+LEN_ALIAS;
    var U_HANDLE =U_NAME+LEN_NAME;
    var U_NOTE =U_HANDLE+LEN_HANDLE+2;

    var U_LOCATION =U_ADDRESS+LEN_ADDRESS;
    var U_ZIPCODE =U_LOCATION+LEN_LOCATION;
    var U_PASS =U_ZIPCODE+LEN_ZIPCODE+2;
    var U_PHONE =U_PASS+8;
    var U_BIRTH =U_PHONE+12;

    /going psuedo here/
    U_ALIAS = 0;
    U_NAME = alias plus length
    U_NEMAIL = comment + length of comment 2
    U_PASS = zipcode
    U_BIRTH = phone number

    FIrst impression from looking at it and seeing BIRTH = PHONE kinda made me wonder if the 2 columns were pasted together incorrectly.

    Thanks for taking a look.

    that's generally my fault for even being there. those values are for use with system.matchuserdata() sine that method previous had no reference for the associated record offsets.
