it's a security feature that works in the background.

You have to type in the code correctly to verfiy your human then it should be fine. If not try it on another browswer. But for whatever reason? you are doing somthing that the feature is detecting as being ad-normal

have been you been useing a lot of different proxies, or changing you email address offten?
perhaps posting a lot of links at once, there are a number of resons it could be triggering this?

thanks for your reply

i typed the unblock code 4 times and it just kept looping and i eventual gave up

And that would be a No on the proxy and email
its never happened to me before and i have been using the forums for at least 4 years and have done nothing different (i am a computer/network engineer so know my way round the OS and its quirks )


hopefully you guys at forumotion should be able to find out what triggered this message
because i really want to know

thanks

Hi,

The reason it was triggered is not logged and is thus not able to be known, however, it does get triggered for many reason's, including the reason of "Because I can" (Legit reason in my opinion), so it seems, as some perfectly normal people, posting perfectly normal things, nothing out of the ordinary, have been blocked.

You can have your account corrected by a simple PM to our Pro-Admin, Leeloo, however, please read her quote in this post first: http://help.forumotion.com/t106781-information-only-topicmember-reporting-being-blocked-suspicious-activity-advice-please#697119 Wink
