[SOLVED] Forum software bug? IP ban?

Postby Pjotr » Sat Nov 11, 2017 5:41 am

When I go to the forum, I get to see an IP ban notice, informing me that I've been banned for a couple of months. :shock:
However, I'm still able to login normally.

As I'm not aware of breaching any forum rules, I assume that this is a glitch in the forum software. Perhaps more people are affected?

I have banned too. :lol:

The ban can bypass using VPN. An example in Opera Browser has VPN, which allows change IP and location. :wink:

Looks like it has been fixed now.... Cheers, Lucap. :lol:

@administrollaattori: I didn't know that about Opera. Might come in useful one day, so thanks.
