Title: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: deGuernsey on April 23, 2014, 09:05:28 pm
I know it has been quite a long time since I've last logged onto this forum and I posted in the Games/Off topic section previously but am I still allowed to post in other sections of the forum?  It may seem an odd question but not all of my posts are registering in the home page so I am curious.  Maybe I'm no longer welcome here?  I don't think I am banned because I am typing this right now... so what gives?   :dontknow: :flower:  thanks in advance.

not all posts register in the main board. Those in the child boards never show.

If you can post then you are not banned.

Oh, I didn't know that... I was wondering what I'd done and yet I can post here... :tehe:  Thank you for clearing that up for me. :flower:

If you have time is there a thread on the Leveson trial?  I cannot find it.  There are quite a lot of new threads since I've been here last.  If not, I understand.:flower:

Yes, thank you sooo much, Alexandrine.  You're an absolute doll.   :hug: 

BTW, where are the secret hidden threads to be found?  I want to read them, too! :laugh: :hug:  I look and I look and I can't seem to find anything other than the games threads.   :laugh:  I'll go searching again.  There is a lot I want to find here.  Ha-ha!

It is very easy to search on the forum, use the search function that you can see next to the profile button and also through google.

Hi,

Not sure whats going on but sometimes when I try and log on it says I'm banned? I always try and be curtious to others, I have received no warnings and not fought with anyone, is this a glitch or is something happening? It even does it when not logged in so I'm a bit miffed.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: Alexandrine on April 29, 2014, 03:31:13 pm
^ If you have not been warned of the fact then you are not banned.

It has to be a glitch because if it wasn't you couldn't post in the forum.

Maybe you should try to change your ip when that happens. 


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: theduchess on April 29, 2014, 05:00:15 pm
Thanks I think it's me. Now it says 500 internal issue in between saying sorry guest you are banned from using this forum. I tried at work and had no problems and it will kind of let me when using my mobile data so if you and any other mods are happy with me then I will have a look at changing my ip address. Technology eh!!!!!


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: Alexandrine on April 29, 2014, 05:04:03 pm
LOL yeah. Sorry that you have to suffer this.

Possibly is that you hav a dinamic ip and are sharing with someone who is banned which is really bad luck as there are not many who are.

Post by: quo on May 01, 2014, 11:46:54 am
I too have suddenly been told that I am banned...I rarely post and have never been rude to my knowledge so am taken totally aback by this...I am using my phone now and have been able to post this...please can you help me...many thanks


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: Alexandrine on May 01, 2014, 02:21:15 pm
if you were banned you could not write in the forum not even from your phone. When an account is banned is like the poster is not a member anymore.

there must be some glitch with the ips, I will see if something happened but I don't know if I will be able to fix it


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: YooperModerator on May 01, 2014, 03:58:59 pm
^^quo? I've checked your status and there is no ban, no warnings, nothing and your membership is clean.

I'm wondering, tho, what message you've received.  I noticed that you have 66 postings so that would limit your access to certain threads until you reach 200 so perhaps you're receiving a notice that you cannot post there or see the thread?

Other than that, your ISP is strong and fine, there is no evidence on this end of any problems whatsoever.  Please let me know what the issue is that you have or cut/past the 'warning'.  And, as Alex pointed out, if you were banned or restricted, you wouldn't be able to post here at all.

Thank you.

Thank you Yooper very much for your reply....I am home again and seem to have got on no bother....the message I received told me I was banned because I had been rude to other posters and there didn't appear to be any access at all to the forum...I sent my first message via my mobile phone...I'll just keep an eye on things but I am very grateful for the quick replies I have had...thanks again to both you and Alexandrine..


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: theduchess on May 01, 2014, 06:49:47 pm
That's the exact same message I get when I try and access using my own broadband. When I sneak on at work or use my mobile Internet I have absolutely no issues. My ip changed every time I switch my Internet box on so I presume it's something to do with my service provider or router.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: Alexandrine on May 01, 2014, 06:54:18 pm
That's very weird because if you are banned you can't post until it has been lifted.

I mean if people banned could post from another device the banning method wouldn't work at all


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: YooperModerator on May 01, 2014, 06:56:51 pm
^^^You're more than welcome and I'm glad to hear that you were able to log on without any issues.  I haven't been able to locate any error messages on the IPS but will keep an eye on  Sometimes, my router gives me error messages on Safari and quite often on Chrome. I'm not sure what browser you're using nor what your privacy settings are but that's always what caused my problems.  Cookies and popups, too.

^^I'm wondering, theduchess, if there's some glitch in the IPS server.  I, too, will keep an eye on any error messages on your profile but, to date, I have seen nothing.

Please keep me posted.  That's very unnerving, I'm sure, and know that it is for us as well.

Post by: YooperModerator on May 01, 2014, 07:56:49 pm
To: auo and the duchess.  Is there any way that you could find out what domain or IP number came back with an error message?   That would be a huge help getting to the bottom of this.  Also, could you provide me with a date when this started?  Thanks for any info.

Today was the first time I had any problems and that was on a computer at work which I had used to access the forum previously...I will try again tomorrow at work to see if there is an issue again..

I have been banned as well for insulting other posters. I thought that there was perhaps a problem as the message came up with an error and I did not think that I had insulted anyone.

I did try to email the link from when I first joined as there was no way I could get in touch with a moderator.


 


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: YooperModerator on May 02, 2014, 02:36:40 pm
^Is it still saying that, Freya?  And, if so, I see that you are able to post just fine but I'd be glad to check.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: Freya on May 02, 2014, 02:50:59 pm
It's fine now thank you. Must have been just a blip.

Post by: YooperModerator on May 02, 2014, 02:55:18 pm
^Thank you.

Does anyone who has had this issue know if they are served by British Sky Broadcasting broad band? 


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: Rock n royal on May 02, 2014, 03:07:18 pm
My broadband is via Sky and I've had no problems.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: YooperModerator on May 02, 2014, 03:11:38 pm
^Well, I can say that one IP that is issued from Sky is consistently being a problem.  Still need to do more checking.  I'm really sorry to hear of these issues happening but rest assured we're working on it.  PLEASE let me know if you have any problems or if you can locate the IP when you get a goofy message.  Thanks.

Post by: theduchess on May 02, 2014, 07:56:13 pm
I'm with talk talk. It started blocking me on Wednesday and I was a little upset. I don't know what it was but I knew it wasn't right I got to work to try and contact a mod and it let me log on no problem. Also my ip said to Google my ip address to be able to access my settings and it came up with a page that said it was used by a spammer. I'm still a bit miffed thought as I get a new one as u switch my box of overnight.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: Alexandrine on May 02, 2014, 07:59:51 pm
It is understandable that you feel upset and we are very sorry that this is happening to members.

If you have more details please contact Yooper via pm especially about your ip being used by a spammer.

In any case if you cannot access anymore using your account please register again and tell us the problem.

Post by: quo on May 02, 2014, 08:13:36 pm
I am still getting the message that I am banned whilst using the computer at work...I am by no means IT literate.....so all I can say is that the search engine at work is BING and that we use Chrome at home and that is fine...I know that is not much help but thank you for all your help


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: theduchess on May 02, 2014, 09:52:49 pm
^^ tbh you and yooper have always been friendly and I know that you would not just ban someone with out good reason and you would say. I can still access my account just not through my broadband. I am going to give it a few days to see if it corrects itself and I may try my old sky box just out of interest but I don't really want to have to start over.

^ i use come and ie and both don't work on my laptop and tablet so I think it's either an ip address issue or the ip is playing up or and im going out on a limb here the powers that be want to silence us lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Post by: YooperModerator on May 04, 2014, 02:19:05 am
I'm wondering if it has anything to do with people's security settings.  Have any of you recently upgraded your browser?  I'm checking on your IP addresses but have not found a problem yet.  Just know that I'm working on it.  Thank you.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: theduchess on May 17, 2014, 06:28:33 pm
Just to let you know that I can now access the site from home again, it seams to have fixed itself.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: YooperModerator on May 17, 2014, 07:32:11 pm
^Thank you for the update.  I've been unable to find any issues on this site as of yet for others having trouble, so hopefully it was a glitch in the network.

That is the message that I got when I tried to access the site. My IP is BT.

I've had this twice, once a couple of months ago and once within about a month of registering. I'm with BT broadband though.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: Alexandrine on August 13, 2015, 10:57:11 am
you could have a dynamic ip. We cant do nothing in that case. One member had lots of problems recently. It usually happens to members from UK.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: Whiffy Leaks on August 13, 2015, 03:37:44 pm
I do have a dynamic IP. I racked my brains wondering who I'd insulted, and why.  :shy: :dontknow:


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: Alexandrine on August 13, 2015, 03:54:18 pm
^if you haven't received a pm about being banned then it's a host problem. We always tell before doing it. If you can't access the forum then try another device to see if you can enter from there. Like from cellphone.

In any case I will tell yooper because she was investigating why was this happening.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: YooperModerator on August 13, 2015, 04:34:31 pm
I can say this:  If you're able to post, you're obviously not banned.  If it goes in/out, it's not on our end and this has happened to a few people before as Alex said, all from the London area server.

What has worked in the past is to do a couple of things:

1.  Try signing in from a remote location, i.e., work, a friend's computer.
2.  Completely reboot your laptop or shut down/start up your iPad, smartphone
3.  Use a different browser.  Google Chrome seems to be one that works as does Safari.  Biggest issues with Internet Explorer.

I hope this helps and, no, you are not banned, Whiffy.

Post by: Alexandrine on August 13, 2015, 04:56:42 pm
^Part 2 would better be reboot the router! No need to reboot the pc. Clean the cache and try with the router before doing that.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: YooperModerator on August 13, 2015, 06:39:54 pm
^Good point.  I'd still reboot my own system first but that's Mac-speak.  A Mac will adjust to and correct the router not the other way around.  It depends upon what system a person is using.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: Alexandrine on August 13, 2015, 06:52:28 pm
Try both things and see what happens!


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: Whiffy Leaks on August 13, 2015, 09:19:11 pm
It's stopped now, I just stayed off for a few days. The first time I came back and searched through all my posts to see what I'd said that could be taken the wrong way. I will say my piece if need be, but don't sink into insults (unless you're one of my brothers lol. We've never grown up).


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: YooperModerator on August 13, 2015, 09:34:18 pm
^Please remember, and this goes for everybody, I (or Alex) sends an email letting you know that you have been banned and if that has failed for whatever reason, it is mentioned on the forum directly, so stop worrying.  You'll know if you're ever banned but I don't see that as being very likely.   :flower:


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: theduchess on August 16, 2015, 10:49:53 pm
I have this now and again. As quick as it starts it sorts its self out. I don't know why it does it, I kept rebooting my router, clearing my internet history but nothing would work and what I though was strange is that it would be from different computers with different IPs and service providers an even my mobile internet sometimes. It always sorts itself out though and after the shock of it happening the first time, I know that one of the mods would email me if something was genuinely wrong so it doesn't bother me as much now.


Title: Re: Am I banned or on a naughty list or???
Post by: YooperModerator on August 17, 2015, 03:15:15 am
^It's a puzzler, that's for sure.  Whenever I look at the IP, it's always the same provider right from an area new BP in London.  I'm not saying that BP has anything to do with it but it looks to be near a library which may have security codes that interfere?  I don't know.  My very best advice is to call your IP and discuss it with them.  They'll have a history and can explain or possibly correct the problem from the source. 

Thank you and please keep us posted.
