Have I been banned?

Postby Which Tyler » Fri Jun 07, 2019 2:17 pm

I seem to have picked up a permanent ban at home.
Just got into work though, and have logged on fine.

I'm guessing something to do with IP addresses :s
Or possibly crimes against autocorrect/grammar (which would be fair)

Oh FFS. Sorry Which - we've had a problem with spammers and set up IP blockers, but it randomly gets other people sometimes. Do you use a VPN at home or anything to bounce your IP?

I don't have the power to fix, but will let Sandydragon know.

If you use the Opera web browser it has a built in VPN.

To my knowledge, I only use a VPN when watching matches on RugbyPass.

What's the betting that Sandy takes my banning as a win and leaves well alone?

Bloody hellfire. I think we're going to turn off the IP blocking altogether, as it's causing more problems than it's solving, so hopefully you should be okay soon.

I'm honestly not bothered at my end, just a bit weird. I'm fine at home.

Still banned at home
Cafes and public wifis seem fair enough to me, as they may well be used by bots and proxys to spam the boards with fake IDs.

Trouble is, there's no good answer - either we don't allow new posters, we submit all new posters to moderation for their first 20-odd posts (exhaustive) or we ban IP addresses and catch some genuine IDs in computer glitches.

We've decided not to ban any spammers, just disapprove their posts. If that works then fine, its a few less clicks for the mod.

Does that mean existing abs (like mine) will be lifted?

I genuinely don't want to create more work for the mods; but being able to read&post from home is kinda important to me.

Can you PM me your IP address from home? I'll have a look and uncheck that.

Might be tricky, as I won't be able to PM you from home.

I'll do it tonight and PM you tomorrow from work

I'm back in - Thank you Sandy, and Sorry to everyone else.

But now I'm being signed out every 10 minutes or so; rather than the every 6 months it used to be.
Bug at my end or bug at yours?

This has happened to me a few times now. A short term fix is just restarting your router which must give you another ip address. Worth remembering though.

Do you need someone under 60 to tell you how to do it?

Apologies, I wasn’t aware. It’s not funny, Alzheimer’s runs in my family.
