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, Rocky has posted on FB that she can't get on to this site. She's getting a message saying her IP is blocked as she is blacklisted. Can any of the mods help? Thanks

I’m not on Facebook.

First question is to find out if she is at home.

Brilliant. Seems to have sorted itself. I'm at home and had wondered what had happened here that had added me to a blacklist :shock: thanks all.

It's possible that you have a "Dynamic IP". You service provider may change the one you use each time you connect. If so, his list may contain one that was banned for some reason. I'll have a look.

I'v had a quick look at the list of banned IP addresses and none of them resemble the one that you are using. Very odd. Must have been a temporary glitch.

It's possible that your own service provider put up a temporary "Ban Everyone" to stop any traffic while they did some maintenance on their equipment.

Zosh has sent me some photos (of her hobbit house) as a slide show via email, but which uploaded into One Drive …. Is there a way of putting them on here ? I did try, but I suspect the file was too large ???

As far as I’m aware, you can only load pictures and YouTube videos.

I don’t know “onedrive”. If it’s an open access app, then you can post the link to it.

Just had a quick look. It seems that onedrive is a Microsoft thing you have to sign up to before you can view anything.

if you click on the photos doesn't it give you an option to download/save as?
if so you should then be able to resize them (i just use a custom resize option - much easier) that can be found in the photo manager - i assume you are using a pc rather than apple.

thanks.... not sure I can re-size someone else's photos, but I will see if Zosh (or Mr Z) can do that ...

Once they are downloaded, they should be yours to do with as you wish.

It depends on how they have been linked into a slide show too, you can only resize them as individual picd

It seems that I can post again :D . For a long time I've been getting a message saying 'General Error' 'SQL Error'. I emailed Lee via the link it gave but today it seems to have cleared. Anyone have any idea why I was getting that message?

Cheers

No idea ... I've had no problems lately ... sometimes clearing your cache gets rid of that sort of problem ... glad to see you back anyway :D

The board does occasionally give the SQL error message when the server is having hiccups

However the message also appears if you write a post with a character in it SQL (the coding language) can’t read such as an emoji, so perhaps there’s a character on your keyboard it doesn’t like? I

I tried various posts on different threads and even logged out a few times. I logged out again this morning and was able to post. I take your point about an emoji and as you know I always finish with :tu: so maybe it was that but heyho, it's working now.

Hello, why did the forum not accept my two Gmail email addresses which are NOT disposable? I constantly use them for both work and personal. In the end I had to use my company email address just to sign up in the forum. I think the forum bans anyone with common addresses and cannot distinguish those from disposable ones.

The board can tell the difference, but both disposable email addresses and free email addresses are banned for different reasons.
