I have a question.  I went on a vacation recently but before I left I logged out of the FF.  When I tried to log in on another computer where I was as soon as I clicked "enter fungi forums" it said "Sorry guest, you are banned from this forum!"!!  I didn't understand it because that computer had never even visited the fungi forums before and it was already banned!  Then I tried another computer that had never visited tmk before and it said the exact same thing!!  The only computer I can use to get here is the one I registered on!  I would like a little help if I could get it please.

It was most likely related to IP addresses. I can't explain it very well, but a similar thing happens to me occasionally when visiting another site.

I do know what an IP adress is but I am still a little confused why that would prevent someone from accessing the forums.

Like I said, I can't explain it well, but people with dynamic (changing) IPs have been banned repeatedly in the past, and now people that are currently using those are suffering for it. I believe another member was unable to access the forums for a long time due to his IP changing to a banned one.

lolol

btw I thought it was funny because a) he was banned and was asking why he couldn't log on b) the problem is obviously solved, because he just posted and c)I'm pretty sure it's the username that gets banned, and not the IP.

EDIT: oh wait

You have a strange sense of humor if you thought any of that was funny.

Ok I see.  So Deezer only intended us to log onto one computer when we want to get on here so thats why he put the thread topic to let everyone know if your going on vacation cause if you use a desktop (like me) then you'll have to wait until you get back to start using your account again!  It makes perfect sense!

No.
With many ISPs, everytime you connect to the internet, you get a different ip address. Apparently, somebody got banned, and the computers you were using happened to get the ip address that was banned.

After all these big realizations crashed, it's no wonder you're addicted to mushrooms.
