My phone is banned from the forum
« on: July 11, 2019, 03:44:43 PM »
So, this last week or so, if I try to access this forum on my phone (not logged in on there) I get "Sorry Guest, you have been banned from using this forum."

Now, given that it's impossible to post as a Guest and the fact that there are, as I type this, 201 Guests browsing the site, I am wondering why/how this has happened. I've tried clearing cookies/cache/history etc from my phone but to no avail. How did the forum pick my phone's particular session out from the myriad of Guests active on here at all times?  lol

That happened to me a couple of years ago, unfortunately I can't remember how I sorted it.

Possibly, your phone was using a dynamic IP range which we had to ban previously due to it being used by a spambot or similar.
