Ask the Mods (and the rest of the board) Mark2

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Hi Pepperpig, This is something Aero or Riocaz will have to look into. She certainly doesn't show as banned when I look and there is absolutely no reason she would be that I know of.

She's not banned and never has been... Though her IP was caught up when I broke things!

I'm not sure why she's having issues but it's not because we've banned her!!! And there was never any chance that we would mistake her for BadgersBum because of the contraction of their names!!!

It's possible that I missed a range of IPs when I fixed the issue the last time, and her internet connection has picked up a "banned" IP (almost all Internet service providers use "dynamic" addressing, so they change. But I need to know what IP address she's on, that's banned. As the ban list is huge.

She messaged me later to say that she could get in again. Sorry Rio, I should have said.

That would match up with my suspicion that there's a range of IP addresses that I missed when I unblocked the others. However the IP ban list is HUGE and I have no way to find out what it is.

BusyBee, I'm really sorry this is still happening to you. It's in no way intentional on my part (or that of the other mods). If you know how to access your router then log in and look for the IP address the next time it happens and send it over to Pepper, so I can fix it permanently!

Nothing in her permissions has been changed as far as I can see, and she was active here half an hour ago...

I think Will missed a bit of the conversation. ;)

We know! BusyBee hasn't ever been banned, but it looks like she's occasionally picking up a banned IP address that I missed.

PP has just alerted me to this message.

I think my very limited IT skills extend to getting the IP address next time it happens.

Interesting, or maybe not, I was out in Manchester using my mobile when it happened, and was OK again by the time me and the kebab had wobbled home.

Thank you Lee and PP for sorting it out.

I really didn't do anything. If it was mobile rather than at home then it will be harder to track down still. :/

Virtually every time I look in I have to log on again with my security details even though I tick the bow "automatically log me in each time I visit.
I am assuming the fault is with my PC as it is quite old running Vista, I have not altered my cookie settings

You may need to clear the "cache". Sometimes that helps.

Dunno! :) Depends on which browser you are using.

I use an Apple Mac and it hasn't been a problem...

Hope you can help me with this?

I'm accessing the site on an I-pad. Since Friday when the site disappeared I have only been able to access the coffee shop threads. If I try to access the kitchen threads all I get is the sleeping robot.

I've deleted my shortcut to Wildfood but still get this issue. I can access the kitchen threads on my phone, so it must be something to do with the iPad. Any ideas???

Thanks BB

It's cached. You need to find the option to clear the cache in your browser.

I cleared my cache but still have to log in again every couple of days or so.
No big problem just wondered why, I can access all boards though unlike busybee

That wouldn't be a caching issue, it sounds like your browser is either clearing the login cookie every couple of days or it's becoming corrupted. Both would be on your computer though nothing to do with our side.

Are you entering the site via a link in Google chrome? If so I had the same issue with my iPad and to solve it I deleted the Chrome icon and reinstalled it. Works perfectly now.

You know those emails you get when someone sends you a Private Message? Don't delete them all ... I keep a few in a folder where I can find them ... when the site has been down and the sleeping robot has been around, if your short cut links still keep going straight to him, find one of those emails and click on the link contained therein ... works for me :tu: :D

Clearing your cache is faster...

And guaranteed to work whereas that probably won't work all the time (specifically it WON'T work if you try it before the board comes back and cache the page you are trying to get too).

To clear your cache in Firefox (windows) you click "Tools" "Options" "Privacy" and "clear your recent history". Most other browsers will have a similar option.

Or just press "Ctrl-Shift-Delete" in Windows or "Command-Shift-Delete" on a Mac (which SHOULD work for every browser but may not).
