TapaTalk Sock Message
« on: January 11, 2013, 04:13:53 PM »
I don't know if this is on the board side or TapaTalk's but I just tried accessing the forum and was immediately greeted with the message:

System Message

Sorry Guest, you are banned from using this forum!  Sock puppet of a banned member
This ban is not set to expire.

It then offered me the login screen but even when using my user name and password, I get the same message addressed to "Guest".

Could be that, when accessing via TapaTalk (or your wireless provider), you've got the same IP range as a certain Dr. Socks. There are lots of "what's my IP" sites on the 'net, I'd suggest you use one and PM the result to LunarOrbit.

I'll look into it when I get home in about half an hour. But I think your IP address probably falls into the same range as the ones I just blocked the other day when I banned Patrick. Easy to fix if that's the case.

I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth.
I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.

Ok, you should be able to access the forum using Tapatalk again. Sorry about that.

S'okay!  I thought it might be an IP problem.
