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.

Good morning

I’ve had a text from Scullion saying that she’s getting a message saying been banned from Wildfood ‘cos of her IP address :o

Can someone sort it out for her please :D thanks x

Seems I am having IP issues too. My mobile since last Thursday wouldn't preview or post but work was fine, today it seems my mobile is fine but work is blocked. Very odd...

Can the lovely mods help?

Ta! :grin:

This lovely mod can't - you need someone on the Admin side, who actually understands the technical bits. Hopefully Aero will see your message, but I'm not sure he's back from his holiday yet. You could send him a PM, when you can next get online one way or another.

Thanks Suelle. I will PM aero. :tu:

Although the biggest pain was not being able to post at home and that is now working. Ahhh, technology eh? :rolleyes:

If it is working at home now I'd guess that whatever it was has sorted itself out.

I am in the middle of g mail horrors, nothing to do with wildfood, a Safari up date I think, if that is any consolation.

All seems ok now on my mobile but no good at work, which is probably for the best! :wink:

Good luck with your tech issues! :tu:

These things are a mystery. I am glad your stuff is running again. Mine is still collapsed.

Glad you got it working again, Tezza. And good luck Miss Mouse. There's nothing so frustrating as computer issues. (They even beat train issues on that front.)

Back to mustard, my consumption of it has increased since this thread started!

Hi Mods :D

I've just received an email from Scullion as follows:

"...since being blacklisted for being badgerbum my ip address keeps getting blacklisted on the forum a couple of times a month (or more).
wildfood is the only place it happens. so i'm beginning to think it's nothing to do with me.
i've scanned my mac for infections and deleted board cookies but that doesn't make any difference.
i'm allowed to sign on to the board but as soon as i try to post a message the 'blacklisted' notification comes up.
grrrrrr...."

Can anyone help her please?

I've been getting that when I try to post when away from home. Very annoying. I think it's down to your local service provider. Many of these use a "randomiser" to change your IP address each time you log in. It's done to increase security to prevent someone permanently latching on to your online presence.

It seems that IP providers are spreading out into a wider range of addresses and some of these are ones we have already banned. If you know the IP address being used, I can check it. There is probably a way of looking it up in admin, but the only IP address readily available is the one used when you first register.

i can message the ip address to you, if you like. we have very recently gone from a plus net landline service to a 4g router - it has happened on both now.

Yes please! I'll check and see if it's a banned one. If it is I can try and release it.

A techno idiot replies;

As well as deleting the Wildfood cookies you need to be logged out as well which I expect you know. And that is probably all I can think of.
