Couldn't access the forum from Barcelona ( also FR, SA )

Error 403, forbidden.

Any chance of an explanation? It was a bit annoying...

Re: Couldn't access the forum from Barcelona

Might have been in the block of IPs from ES that we have blocked out. If the IP is known, send us a PM.

Re: Couldn't access the forum from Barcelona

Could it be a blocked IP? When we ban spammers posting from abroad, we often block the IP too. I don't understand these thing at all though so it is only a wild guess.

Re: Couldn't access the forum from Barcelona

Sounds reasonable. Can't tell you the IP. Should've made a note of it. There might a log of it on my laptop - I'll check.

Psst: Don't tell the others but there's more interesting stuff to do in Barcelona than follow all the trolling of the EF,

Re: Couldn't access the forum from Barcelona

There's more interesting stuff to do in Basel too, but as I'm stuck in the office for a few hours each day my options are limited.

Plus I lied about Basel.

When you are abroad and have difficulty, try this tool: http://www.whatismyip.com/

Record the IP and send it as a PM later ( or send it via email quoting your username to our Gmail account ) to Editor Bob who will examine and quite possibly unblock it.

Re: Couldn't access the forum from Barcelona ( also FR, SA )

Note down the IP using the tool ( http://www.whatismyip.com/ ) and send us an email quoting your EF username and location ( town and country will be helpful ), to team at englishforum.ch

If you are abroad and affected, you will not be able to access this page / post with links, so I suggest you bookmark the links prior to your travel ( or download and save the PDF attachment )
