WF says banned IP but...?

18 replies
Hey everyone. This may be the wrong section because this is about the WF specifically, and the board here is about IM. Still, I think it's related enough for me to post here.

Literally 15 minutes ago I went to the homepage of the WF, and it says the "Administrator has banned your IP address." or something of the like. I was given a link to send the admin a message, so in that message I asked what could I possibly of done to get my IP banned. I also noticed that I was able to login to my WF account like regular on the top right. So I logged in, and found that I wasn't banned at all. Everything worked fine, I sent a PM reply to the person that recently sent me one, logged out, and everything was fine. Did I really send the admin a message? I have no idea.

Lol wut? What exactly just happened here? Has anyone experienced anything like this?

Mind you, it was still "warriorforum.com", so I don't believe I went to a site that wanted my information, per say.

    Maybe you got a temporary ban for something? They give those out for various rule breakings.

    Yes I got the message as well. I thought "what in the world is going on here?!", but then I logged in and realized I wasn't banned.

    It must be a glitch or something.

      If you break the rules. They will ban you for few weeks/months or forever

      So before posting read the rules to avoid such accidents.

        Well I guess you don't practice what you preach because it looks like you just got hit with the "Ban Hammer".



        To answer the OP'S question, it must be either a glitch or admin doing some testing because the same happened to me the other day.

          I got the same message three days running, lol!

          But yeah, I could still log in and continue on as normal.

          Huh, looks like pingsters got pinged. :rolleyes:

            I think there’s a system glitch because you were still able to continue using it. If you don’t want to be banned, make sure that you follow the rules all the time. Otherwise, WF will ban you for like months or weeks—others even get banned forever. Keep the rules in mind all the time prior to posting in order to avoid this from happening.

    Same here and all is working well when I re-logged in. Maybe a glitch in their system possibly?

    Thanks for the reassurance guys.

    Also I LOL'd at the irony of pingsters saying that if I break a rule I will get banned for a little while and to read rules before posting... and here he is being banned. LOL no offence man, it was just kind of funny. Hopefully you'll be unbanned soon?

    I think it's a glitch, happens to me everytime I try to view the forum without logging in. Made my heart drop the first time it happened to me, a few days ago

    I just wanna tell you that most of the links in the signature are trash and/or a trap to make you pay!

    Same thing happened to me earlier today, but it appears to have just been some error as I was also able to login without any problem and haven't seen it since then.

    Ha, ha, I got the same message but didn't want to say anything (until I found this thread).

    I thought maybe someone was pissed off at me (who me?).

    It happened to me yesterday and I was shocked for a while. When I logged in it said the same "Adm has banned your IP" I was just wondering what to do next, I just ran CC Cleaner and logged in without any error.

    God knows what happened.
