    Default I've Been Banned!

    I keep getting a message to say:-
    "You have been banned for the following reason:
    No reason was specified.

    Date the ban will be lifted: Never"

    It seems to happen if I have been logged out and try to reply to a thread or if I go to a members page and try to click to find their most recent posts to name a couple of examples.

    I'm able to log in and post and it doesn't appear to happen if I am logged on.

    I'm assuming this is just a glitch in the system and I can just ignore?

    Thanks

    My IP has now been banned three times in recent months. The last time was over the previous 2 days. On each occasion I have completed the message box politely asking to know the reasons why my IP has suddenly been booted, and what the forum staff are doing to stop it happening again. To date, no one has bothered to respond.

    Being a Mod on another forum, I know how much of a drain it can be to your domestic existence, however, with all due respect, can someone have the courtesy to answer the questions please?

    Many thanks

    Hello Jonny,
    This is an ongoing problem and Jagan is working on it. See the 'FORUM ISSUES' sticky under GENERAL ...

    http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...ghlight=banned

    ... and you will see that others have had the same experience.
    We are sorry that members have a problem of this type but there seems to be a random element in the 'who-when-why' of how the problem arises.

    As to the lack of response, which has clearly caused you some annoyance, I was unaware of any of your messages. Now that you are logged in, I trust the matter can rest while Jagan has a look at the loggin records? I will make him aware.

    Regards,
    Bruce

    Bruce,

    Thanks for taking the time to explain the issue. I will of course maintain a more patient approach now that I understand how the land lies.

    Rgds and thanks again

    Hello

    I just got a warning message when clicking on a Google search link to this page:

    https://www.rafcommands.com/database/serials/MM911

    Message as follows:

    "Your connection is not secure
    The owner of www.rafcommands.com has configured their web site improperly. To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this web site."


    Obviously the site's working fine, or I couldn't post this, but I thought it worth mentioning.

    regards

    Simon

    Hi Simon,

    that can be ignored.

    The reason for it is that the search returned https:// instead of a http:// URL. Former is more secure to send information over. But the certificate is not implemented on this site yet.

    Since we dont collect any credit card numbers, bank acount numbers etc :) we should be fine.

    Additionally i had earlier tried to implement a short cut URL system so the result should have returned http://www.rafcommands.com/database/serials/<serial> or http://www.rafcommands.com/database/serials/details.php?uniq=<serial> .. the former sometimes does not work - i have not been able to resolve that issue.. but the latter will work (if it has the uniq=xx123 in the URL)

    I need not state the obvious but make sure the password you use on the Forum is a different one than you use for your banking accounts!

    Chaps,

    I was banned again this week. This is my fifth 'IP banning' and it is getting damned frustrating now. As I'm not the only one this is happening to, and as someone / somewhere is parting good money for a rather poor service, may I ask what the platform provider is doing to stop this happening again please? If they can't stop it happening to members, may I ask what consideration has been given to move to another provider?


    Many thanks
