For some reason when I go to the forums on my mobile device, recently I get a message indicating I've been banned. The error message reads: "Sorry guest, you've been banned from using this forum! Name calling, resorting to personal attacks. This ban is not set to expire."

What happened? I don't think I've actually been banned (I'm currently logged in from another device, obviously, and I don't recall calling anyone any names.)

Thanks.

The IP address may have been blocked due to another poster's ban.  It happens every now & then.

Thanks, that makes sense. Any idea how I can fix it? Or will it fix itself in due time?

Shoot me a PM and we'll see what we can do.

Great, just sent you a message.

Are you connecting your mobile device to the same network as your other device? Have you tried that to see if there's a difference in behavior?

I am having the same issue on my mobile device. It states that I have been banned due to non stop tank talk, which I have never advocated on here.

"Non stop tank talk"? Is that even something that can get you banned? I can't imagine it is.

This makes me think the system has been hacked.

Probably if used as a trolling mechanism.

Sorry, guys. I was in a mood and playing "Mr. Robot" from home this morning. All bans now lifted. :)

Did you accidentally log in under your cb8883 account?   :P

This is all in good fun but I just looked up old cb8883 and he's not on the member list, so maybe something along those lines did happen.  RIP Fulltank Man.  Wonder if his IP was similar enough to Denis998's phone that the site confuses the two.

hmm, could be.  it's unlike him not to send out a barrage of pro-tanking posts after 2 losses.
