Forums - Website Topics - why am i getting 'forbidden' on this site?

Hey everyone, mainly ioi, Whenever i come onto any page on this site, i'm greeted with the message Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server. So i'm not quite sure what is going on, it seems like an IP ban though (i'm currently accessing the site through a proxy) Anyone have a clue what has happened?

If it was an IP ban, all the other 500+ accounts I made to spammo this site to oblivion would have never been usable.



Strange ..If you had a IP ban we would see it.

This site is really a hell to log in..So that is why I am always automatic logged in.






thats odd, message ioi on the issue. its odd because I cant see a reason that you would have been banned let alone IP banned due to mods not having that ability.

Same here, I always stay logged in, but i've never had this problem before.. and i know the site doesn't regularly IP ban which is why i'm a little confused that i can only login via a proxy

EDIT: okay, will do ssj12, thanks

EDIT2: weird, it is working again.. no longer getting forbidden .. i wonder what happened

We have blockers in place to prevent DOS attacks - if you are using a performance enhancer or anything that tries to run concurrent connections then you will get ip blocked.



no its not that ioi i know what it is. It means he visited too many pages in a short amount of time. (probably 100k refreshed due to wanting to have the new charts =D)

actually.. i was surfing pages pretty fast.. because i was going through a bunch of peoples profiles (just adding people i'm familiar with as friends in one big hit).. that was probably the cause then

I'll make sure i don't do that again, thanks for the responses

 It's because you're bad, so bad you're good.
