so the last couple of months when I load up the forums, I just get a message saying my IP was banned by the admins. And other times, evidenced by me writing this post, everything is okay and I can log in just fine.
Soooo what causes this? I know these days I'm not the most active but I check in every now and then. A friend guessed this:
the only thing that makes sense to me is that you have some area in which you have an okay ip, and some area in which your ip is set to a banned one
I do use
! a VPN but this wasn't even an issue when I started using it. Maybe things changed??
