In progress Adfly prevents me from logging into ANY of my forumotion accounts?

Post by Thought on January 8th 2014, 10:03 pm

Hello,

Yesterday, all was working fine for me. I am a Moderator at a forumotion academy that my friend runs, and was just minding my own business. Then I went to grab some dinner, left (without logging off of my account) for about 30 minutes, then when I came back, I found myself automatically logged off of the academy. So I try to log back in, but as soon as I enter my user/pass and click that 'log in' button, it redirects me to this Adf.ly thing which forces me to skip an ad before re-redirecting me back to my academy. Seems...bearable, right?

The problem? The moment I get re-redirected to my academy, I AM NOT LOGGED IN. The following time I try to login, it re-re-redirects me to that adfly thing. Which basically imprisons me in a never-ending loop.

The extremely disconcerting thing was that EVERY SINGLE one of my forumotion accounts - even those on other websites, have this exact same problem. Nobody else in my academy has this issue - not even the Founder. (I do not have access to the admin control panel - I am not even an admin.) However, I tried logging into a public "bot" account that the founder of my academy created, and it worked fine, I was on - but only on that one account. A friend of mine, to whom I gave my (temporary and changed) password to, attempted to access my computer - and the same problem happened to him. It seems like every account on forumotion made with my IP is locked into this loop by this Adfly thing.

(Screenshot of my issue):http://oi40.tinypic.com/2m42c5g.jpg

Things I have tried and did not resolve the issue:
- Clearing cache/history
- Reinstalling my browser
- Restarting computer
- Using two different anti-spyware/malware to obliterate any viruses on my account (eliminated a lot of harmful stuff, but still did not resolve the issue)
- Using a standard computer scan
- Using Adblocker

...Any advice?

I am using Chrome, but I am 100% sure it's not the browser's problem. Even if it is, I already tried clearing the cache, history, and even reinstalling the thing, and besides, this problem is the same for Safari, Firefox, Chrome, and even IE (yes, I resorted to IE). I told you, a friend of mine who lives 2000 miles away attempted to logon to my account (I changed my pass and gave it to him), and he could not log on either, which insinuates this is an IP issue.

The problem persists for ALL of my FORUMOTION accounts on different forums (3 total), all created and owned by different people. It sends me to that redirect loop every time.

Ok my gut is saying try a different operating system if you can. ( i honestly dont think that it will work but stranger things have happened)
Im creating a test account on your forum to see if i have this adfly issue.
Have you tried restoring your forum using http://www.forumotion.com/en/utils/

1. I've tried another computer, yes. Again...my friend who lives 2000 miles away tried to logon to my account from his computer. DIDN'T WORK.

2. You won't have this issue. Every single other member is 100% fine. It's extremely weird, because Ieven logged onto a public "bot" account created by our Founder (under his IP) and it was perfectly fine for me, no adfly redirect.

To make this simple...
Who can log onto any accounts created by my IP? Nobody, problem persists for me and for anyone else who attempted to log onto my account.

Who can log onto every other account in existence?Everybody, including me. I was able to log onto another account not created by me, and nobody else has any problems.

For all intents and purposes, the "issue" is consistent for everybody, just that it obviously doesn't affect other people because, you know, they don't have my account.

3. It's not my forum. I'm just a Moderator, I have absolutely no administrative powers, nor do I have access to the Admin Control Panel. For discussion's sake, I'm simply a member.

If resyncing the forum resets the whole thing, then definitely not.

The forum is quite active and we have about 40 members online right now as we speak. :l

Resyning the forum does not restore your forum. It could fix issues only.

Hmm, I'll ask our Founder to try it, I'll update this later.

What exactly does re-syncing do, may I ask? Or does it do nothing at all (except fixing potential issues)?

It generally fixes bugs and I believe it synchs with the server. It's good for solving minor issues that can sometimes occur with members and appearance.
