Have I done wrong?

I cannot log onto the forums anymore from my home computer. I thought maybe I was banned or suspended or something, yet I am able to log on as possum from the library computer. So what's going on? I'm terribly confused. Is it a problem with my computer or did I do something wrong? If I did, I really apologize and hope you will let me come back. Whatever it was, I never meant anyone harm and can't think of anything I posted that was mean spirited or whatever.

Someone please explain.

Could you give us some more details as to what you see when you try to log in from home?

If you did something seriously wrong, you wouldn't be able to log in from anywhere.

Re: Have I done wrong?

Possum, did you crash the internets again?!?

Anyway, won't they warn you before banning? I was under the impression that banning was not a random, out of the blue occurrence. You'd be warned, first. It's probably just your computer.

Re: Have I done wrong?

Try accessing www.addforums.com/forums/usercp.php

instead of just addforums.com.

When you log in from the front page, there is an error that says you "do not have permissions to view this page." It only applies to the front page, not to the forums themselves. Therefore, you have to follow a link directly to the forums. The link I gave above will take you to your User Control Panel.

Good luck.

Aw, this made me so sad I just wanted to give you (((hugs))) You are not banned My computer does it too. I'd seen it mentioned here before and don't really know what the issue is...I just go via the pull-down menu on that same page. It is annoying though.

Re: Have I done wrong?

I get the same error messages. It just reminds me how antiquated this site is and how dire its need for a upgrade is.

When I try to log in from home, I get a timed out message that the site is not responding. I have tried Trooper Keith's suggestion that I log on via www.addforums.com/forums/usercp.php
but that doesn't work either. I just get a timed out message there, as well. It's so strange because I can get onto every other site I usually do except for this one. I've run a virus check, I've turned off my modem overnight to reset it, but nothing works.

I'm glad I'm not banned, at least.

Thank you all for your replies and suggestions. I'll continue to try to figure out what my computer is up to. If you don't see me around for a while, you'll know why.

Talking Re: Have I done wrong?

Try clearing cookies and cache from your internet browser. Or perhaps you have done that.

Ok, there are so many really funny responses on this thread, don't you think? Or is that just my quirky sense of humor?

StoicNate wins the award with "You don't look banned." Sort of like, "You don't look sick." "You don't look tired." "You don't look 45."

Then there's Impetus's "four wheel low" busting in on the place (which is what I've been doing for several weeks now because I'm still getting the error message when I log in).

And Impetus again with, "Did you try turning it off and then on again?" Reminds me of an episode of Supernatural where Sam was working as an IT guy and every time it cuts to him, he's on the phone saying, "Did you try turning it off and then on again?"

It's like the ADHDer's Guide to Computers here!

Does this only happen when you actually log in, or are you unable to access the site at all (as in, able to read posts without logging in?) If this only happens upon logging in, it means that the server is likely taking a long time to process your login request. There's a slight possibility that it could be a cookie issue, but I would think that bad cookie data wouldn't kill the forum software's performance. I have noticed that the forum has been having performance issues in the last week. There might be something internally wrong with your account or some other server issue.

If you can't access the forum at all, try accessing the forum by IP address:

It IS like an ADHDer's guide to computers here! I started trying to figure out my firewall, thinking maybe that was it, but it doesn't seem to be. I have tried almost everything suggested here, and nothing works. I just jeep getting the message "Google cannot access this page." Grrrrrr!

I cannot access the site at all. I've cleared all my cookies and that doesn't help. I think you are right about something wrong with the server or my account. I have Windows Vista and I hate it! I've posted here before about how Vista went viral without my knowledge and shut down another site for an hour! So maybe something like that is at work here. My computer sux. It's just a cheap thing from Wally World. Gotta save up some money for a new one. I'm at the motel right now, so I can get online. When I get home, I'll try the IP address. thanks for your suggestions!

If you can't access the site at all, it is probably not an account issue. It is also unlikely to be a server issue (at least concerning the ADDF webserver itself). I would also doubt that it's an issue related to your computer, except in certain species of malware. But even then, I suspect not. If accessing it by IP address works, then it's a DNS related problem. If this is the case, you can try using a different DNS server, such as 8.8.8.8.
