Banned from forums?

Not sure if anybody else is getting this message. I only get it when I visit the website from my PC. Phone still allows me to view the forums.

sorry about that @Tomhille - there may be an IP or host ban that conflicts with your home's IP

I cleared a few recent IP bans, please try again.
If you are still banned, please send me your IP so I can find the appropriate ban.

To find your IP, simply go to google and type "what is my IP" - your IP will be right there at the top of the results. It will be a 4 part number, like 69.420.666.111 (except no number will go higher than 255)

Well, I didn't find that IP in any bans...
It's most likely a hostname ban, and those are harder to dig up.
Can you tell me who your internet provider is?

I actually received a "ban" notice (error 2211) on the app, but am still able to login from the desk. Hmm.

Troy, I tried clearing the cookies but still get the ban notice. No big deal. I will just use my phone.

I deleted the app and then downloaded the app again.  Everything is back and working.

Thank you so much for sharing your fix. I've been pulling my hair out trying to figure out these 'false bans' that people have been getting.

The app may be causing more problems than it solves at this point.
