I get this error: "You do not have permission to access the requested resource".

Game in question: http://pbw.spaceempires.net/games/badchildren

Or perhaps the problem is that I can be marked as dead while I'm still in the game? But I do like being able to access the game forum from my dashboard to discuss how the game went...

The expected path is for the player to leave the game (either by quitting or the host kicking), and then the host marks the player slot as dead by pressing the "finish" button. The dead empires in that game are in a weird state. Maybe the host used the edit player form instead, and I should close that hole.

Yeah, that must be what happened; there's no "mark dead" button until the player quits, but I think you can set a player to the "dead" status if he's still playing!
