One browser says banned, another says fine
« on: May 21, 2018, 06:27:40 PM »
Hi all. I'm relieved to check the site on my laptop where I'm still a member and posting now...for some reason the browser (same browser) on my phone says that I've been banned for multiple violations. I'm hoping the phone one is a mistake and not this one...  :-\

(which is true ? And do you know what I can do to fix it on my phone ?)

Thanks...

I would start with clearing your cache and cookies, see if that resolves it. Your IP may have gotten tangled in some of the recent spam attacks and been banned in error.

I actually deleted the chrome and google apps from my phone entirely and then reinstalled - I had been logged out of another forum that uses the same software, but that one had just logged me out and didn't give me a banned message (I wasn't banned from that one either!). It's fine now, thanks. that was bizarre.

Hello all, I just saw two messages in my inbox saying I was trying to access from two separate accounts - the second said I would be blocked if I don't respond - I only saw the messages today, and I'm absolutely not trying to access from two accounts. As I noted above, I was trying to access from my phone. I'm not in tech and I don't know why safari on my phone said I was banned while my laptop browser said it was fine. But you can see that I posted this thread asking the question. I am not trying to access you from two accounts. Yes to two devices. No clue of what the problem is, tech wise.

Bamboo78, we're volunteers and try to address the issues as we are able.  Please respond to the PM sent by the administrators, if you have not already. As soon as someone is available, the issue of the multiple accounts may be laid to rest.
