Hey guys,

   Sometimes when I try log into the forums it says something along the lines of "Your acount has been banned. If you believe this to be a mistake please contact and administrator". Then, after I wait a few minutes and try again it works and I can log in... any admins out there know what is going on?

User accounts are banned if they abuse the rules, but yours isn't.

It's likely that you are using a proxy IP address which has been blocked, and when you reconnect it's going through a different route.

Oh! That will do it! I just moved from the States to Singapore so I use a proxy to stream pandora. Thanks for the tip, I will be sure to keep my proxy off when using the forums.
