    How did you fix it? I saw this problem yesterday as well.

    mossy, send me the IP addresses and I will check and see and unban them.

    What usually happens DO, is that we get spammers who keep signing up with new names, but with the same IP's, so we will ban them, sometimes if they use a ranges of IP addresses we will ban using a wildcard, like 255.255.100.*

    It could be that a spammer was using the same ISP as you were, and we banned their IP and you just happened to get that IP assigned to you, or your IP could have been included in a wildcard ban by mistake.

    Sorry for any inconvenience.

    I will forward Darth O's pm to you. I did go through the banned ip list and didn't see his on there, and, oddly, I also didn't see that that particular one in the list of ones he's used, so I'm stymied.

    Leon will check when he has time, but maybe you will find it.

    OK I checked the IP addresses you gave mossy. Neither of them are on our ban list. It could be some problem external to theologyweb. Perhaps with your ISP?

    Are you getting some message that actually says "your IP address is banned?"

    Leon doens't have access to the admin panel. He just does the background programming on the server.

    I also didn't see anything close to his given IP addresses listed under his name. Nothing starting with 19* or even close.

    Oh, I didn't know Leon didn't have access to the admin panel.

    Just to be sure ...
    If that was a 192.168 prefix, the IP may be a local one that has to be translated before going on to the internet.

    You can double check your online IP at https://whatismyipaddress.com/

    I suppose this is already known or you probably wouldn't have given an IP address at all

    Dang it, yep you are right. I didn't even think of that.

    DO, you gave us your local internet address, not your actual ISP address. Go on your PC and go to this website https://www.whatismyip.com/ and report to me what the IP4 address says (PM for privacy)

    OK try it again. It was a wildcard ban with a typo. I had XXX.XXX.2* banned instead of XXX.XXX.2.* banned. Left off a period. (the XXX's are just to hide your actual IP in this post)

  12. Amen Darth Ovious amen'd this post.
