Banned IP Address
« on: May 16, 2018, 01:20:30 PM »
Has anyone else had problems with the Banned IP Address, you're Chinese, you're banned and you always will be thing?

It's effecting me using my new home internet provider (they're not big) and my phone (2nd biggest telco in Aus,) I don't have a static IP address.

I did notice Bluenose posted recently.

I can only post using a VPN.

If you could PM your IP address to me, I'll lift that ban. Previously the policy was to enact permanent bans on spammer IPs, but for a while now I've been time limiting them to one year because of the fact that IP addresses are fluid, and an address that was used by a spammer at one point years ago might subsequently be reassigned to a perfectly innocent service provider. Sorry for the difficulties; it certainly wasn't intentional on the part of the staff.  :sadshake:

I don't own an IP address.
It's whatever is provided for the session.

Then use 'My IP' to find one that you are banned on and tell us that.
