First topic message reminder :

[ONLY TOPIC] Detected suspicious activity


Dear members

We have a small amount of reports of detected suspicious activity Problems.

We are working on this problem but if you find your members can not log in and they are getting the
detected suspicious activity warning then Please post here and then after posting here Please PM one of the following staff members @APE @Luffy @Brandon_g @Nemo @SLGray

PM us the following information:

IP address of the member:
Username:
Email address:
Url of your forum:

All this information is important With out this data we can not help with your problem.

How to find the IP address of the member.
To find the IP address of the member log on to your forum as Admin and then go to any post of that members and then click on the IP button on that post it will give you 1 to 100's of IP addresses we need the first one in the list.
Please Don't list all the IP's as the ones below the first one is no longer getting used on that account.

Our Process:
The staff will then report this to our team and get this fixed as soon as we can.
Please Note that on weekends our office is closed so it may take some time to get this done.
A staff member will then post back to acknowledge your report and when your problem has been looked at we will report back here to each member by tagging your name on the posts.

Why This is occurring:
once or twice a year we get an update of a black list and some Email addresses, Ip addresses common usernames are on that list. when added to our systems it will then ban them names ip's or Emails
We also have a Ip addresses blocker on our system that will pick up any member that has a lot of IP addresses and if it changes lots of times in a day / week / month it then Flags up on our servers and will keep a eye on that account and if it keeps going on it will ban the IP address.
This is called a Blacklist we then go in and remove you / your members from that list.

We apologize for the any delay and the inconvenience caused to you and your members.

Unfortunately my member is still having an issue, they can access it using 4G on their mobile, but not from any other devices - they have tried Firefox, Firefox private and Microsoft Edge but still get the same issue.

Their username is Ricardo if you could have another look please Smile

Hi, I have not come across this issue before, but I have just received an email from a member that she's received a warning when trying to login to the forum:

my forum member wrote:Is there a problem with the forum today? McAfee tell me that it is dangerous and there is a risk and not to go there .....

Is this the same issue? I'll PM the info to APE in any case.

Hello, If McAfee pops up and says the site is not safe just add it to the Safe list.

The problem is not our end i don't think i have sent your members info on to our team but i can't see this is the same problem

Please advice your member that our site is 100% safe and that they should just white list the site in McAfee.
