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

ioi gave the "official" reason- the reason the guys in the black suits tell us so that we can sleep well at night.... but I suspect the truth.

YOU'RE GBALLZACK!!!

I'm on to you, Ballsy! It's just a matter of time before you slip up. ;)

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?

How were you able to post if you were getting forbidden messages on every page?  Used a different IP or just tried back later?

I got the same message the other day as well and couldn't access the site. I had been browsing for about an hour or so and it happened. Then yesterday I was busy adding games to the database and all of a sudden it wouldn't allow me and gave me that "permissions to access/" message. I couldn't get on all day after that, so I just tried today and thankfully was able to get on here.

I'm pretty PC-illiterate, so I wasn't running some enhancer or anything like that. I did have two tabs opened for vgchartz, one for searching the database and one for adding games. Could that have caused me to be banned?
