Hi guys, sorry about this, but I am having troubles with that site. When I started downloading mods, I noticed that some faqs and topic were hosted on that forum, but whenever i try to access it, it shows a message saying that I am a spambot or something? Help please?

  • Yes, and also when I simply search the site on google, then go to it, or when i directly type the website url. However, I am able to access their LEX. It's the forum where I cant access :(

    I do know you have to sign up for the forums separately from the LEX. Have you done that?

    Can you post a screenshot of the message that shows up when you go there?

    They seem to be having technical problems, I can't get in either and I was on this morning... then I saw this in the "recent posts":

    We're dealing with some technical issues at present (the hard drive), which seems to have knocked out the forums for the time being. Rest assured that jeronij and our webhost are working on getting the site back up and running.

    I'm an Admin over at SC4D. We had an infestation of spammers awhile back, which led to us banning a lot of IP addresses. Most likely, your ISP has assigned you an IP address that was previously used by one of those spammers. ISPs in the Asia-Pacific region (esp. Singapore) tend to be especially problematic with the way they cycle IP address assignments. If the site were up, I could try looking up your username and see what I could find about getting your account back.

    If you look at the date on that, it's from 10 months ago (February 16th), so it's not recent at all, but it appears to be a similar situation. I don't know all the details, but the forums' database appears to have crashed. Just like everyone else here, I'm unable to login at present. All we can really do is remain patient while jeronij and our hosting service work out the issue.

  • @lhrob (sorry i don't know how to do the quote thing yet) : I have already signed up to the LEX, have downloaded stuff from there. I cannot get the original message up because I think the site has a problem now.

    @Tarkus : I have, i think, no account yet (except for the one at LEX). Thanks in advanced for the help! :)
