Every time I go on the forums it tells me: 'you are banned from using this forum!' with 'spam' below it. This happens with every browser I have apart from IE, but that keeps giving me some other error and I hate using it. I've found out that this only happens to the browsers which I go on the forums with while I'm connected to a VPN. I've recently downloaded another browser and I could go on the forums, but after I connected to a VPN I got banned. disconnecting from it didn't change anything. A few minutes ago I changed my IP by resetting the router and that didn't change anything either.

Your displayed IP is clean on SFS database. The VPN may be using a different IP that has a record. You risk your e-mail address being added if the VPN IP has a record.
At present we manually check the members as they try to join. Any SFS records usually get banned before they get activated and allowed on site.
If you can supply your VPN IP I can check it. Please PM it for privacy reasons.

Nice...  if they've all been used publicly the spammers have likely used them too. Either that or the software doesn't like VPN's when detected.
you are still clean on the database, at least that's good news lol

Stop using VPNs and just fix your main IP address.

I can disconnect from it when I go on the forums, though I may forget to one day. What do you mean by fix your main IP address?

You probably connect to the internet using a Dynamic IP address.  You can try to either get your current IP address removed from our ban list... OR, find out how to reset your connection to force a new IP address to be assigned to you.

I've already done that.

I uninstalled a browser and reinstalled it and now I can go on the forums. That only works for one browser but that's ok.

Are you sure it grabbed a new IP address?

That's cool that it worked... but it makes absolutely no logical sense why.  LoL
Oh well.  Smiley

Even my IP adress is not in the SFS database I still always get this exact same error whenever I want to log in without proxy.

Maybe its cause I'm using an Indonesian IP address?
