Hi, this is my first post here, i've been trying to create an account on this forum for 2 weeks now.
Every time i open up the site it just showed : Your IP address has been banned. but i never had an account here. Finally i manage to create one now by using a friend's computer in another country.
Is there something wrong with the forum ? I've never caused any harm to this forum, in fact i was searching info for the dayz 2017 on the net and all the links where pointing here...Thats how i find this site.
I've changed my ip address many times, but i always get this message. Is my internet provider maybe banned ? I dont know. Can someone shed some light please?
I am using Forthnet located in Greece.
Thanks.

The problem is that we had a giant wave of spam bots. We banned a range of IP's and yours must have fallen under it. We can't just whitelist a single IP out of the ones we banned. You are going to need to use a proxy or a vpn to get around it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

yeah, i had a fear that this was the case... Is there a chance in the future there will be a site based anti-spam measurement instead of ip bans ? Proxies are so slow...takes forever to just open a page.
Thanks again for the answer.

There might be some possibility to get ban because of your Network Provider's IP address. The Forum might have banned specific numerical ranges of IP address (or) country based IP address. The Administrator/Moderator provides this banning to protect from spammers. As your IP address changes a lot, it is Dynamic IP provided by your Internet Service Provider. So there may be some hackers/spammers who can use your IP address in any situation. Thats why, you may get banned from this site. Better request a Static(Dedicated) IP from your Internet Service provider, so it can be fixed(No changes) with your IP address. So, it can't be used by anyone except you and can't be banned easily from any site. To check whether your IP address is constant, visit IP-details.com .
