Getting locked out of Forums

12 posts in this topic

Posted

Hi

 

For the past few days, I have been getting this error wherein I can't visit the forums. In fact I cannot log out of my account or do anything to do with the forums. This happens for atleast 12-14 hours before it gets back to normal. I have attached the screenshot for reference.

 

Some information:

Using Mac OSX 10.7.5 with Firefox 22. I have tried Safari but it just doesn't work. [ Adblocker has been disabled on the website ]

My account is already logged in and I'm not visiting any particular forum - Just general stuff. Even if I click on my account name to logout, it throws that error. I can only access the homepage.

Try browsing the site in private mode and see what happens.  If you can log in and browse the forum without and problems you might want try clearing you browsers cookies and see if that resolves the issue.

I would pm timan or neobond on this directly, so they can look into it, purely because if it's happening to you, and you've not been restricted then it could be happening to other users as well.

I will try this next time although I tried it in a different browser i.e. Safari and had the same issue.

I can't find anything wrong with your account, ore IP address. Will alert devs to this though because it might be a server issue.

Should be fixed, we were blocking IP's on the same range you were using (spam accounts) you use a lot of different IP's!
