Why was I IP banned?

Recommended Posts

Could one of the moderators/admin please explain why I was IP banned? Was it because I logged in while overseas on holidays, and not from my past IP address? 

I'm a bit confused! I know I didn't break any rules and I've logged in from overseas before. 

- Sorry if I've posted this in the wrong section. 

Thanks :smile:

This keeps happening to people randomly, and then it eventually self-resolves.

It even happened to me! And nobody wants me banned, of course. Right guys?

Right?

This happens to a lot of people. This forum is weird and in a state of disrepair.

Oh, that's so bizarre (and funny) I suppose :tongue:

It's just that it also coincided with me being overseas, but it seems that was a coincidence if it happens to you guys too. 

A broken fansite for a broken game - completely off topic, I got my 15 year cape on RS and thought to myself, 'I can't believe I still play this s**t game'. Long story short, it made me think of this place. :ice:

Sal or yuan made a permanent fix for me for that issue I think

I kept getting banned too

it's a server issue and not a forum issue if I'm not mistaken

but yeah, it's weird

it has something to do with the cloudfront load balancer/threat management; I was banned too but it never went away. I just got a new IP :-)

in reality it's probably for the better, we're all doomed here without Mr. Fang

Dorothy (the server) is screaming at incoming and outgoing connections (John). She wants him to tell their son Harvey (data) that it's time for tea. The problem is, John is so old now that everything Dorothy says is muffled and incoherent. He hears "It's time for them to leave". So he starts telling everyone who was expecting a nice dinner that actually, they aren't coming in and he's locked the door.   Edit: Dorothy heard me talking about her. KddY6gi.png
