    Hey there

    when I visit the site on my windows laptop, I get the message that my ISP is blocked. I've tried three different browsers and cleared the cache etc., to no avail. But I can log in with no problem from my phone. So I hope it's just a technical issue on my side and I just wanted to let the admin know about it.

    I don't think I've done anything to warrant a ban (?).

    Thanks!

    Maybe it's for something you've not done yet-just to be proactive :)

    That’s what happens when you accidentally hit the “ignore entire site” button. Not sure on a pc, but on my iPad display it’s just to the left of the thingamajig and below the whatchamacallit.

    Could be the black mask. Sinister. Maybe you could try someting in a cheerful paisley or something in the Hello Kitty range.

    I would suggest getting in contact directly with the forum adminstrators through the links at the bottom of the page. (Member list and/or the Enthused Digital links). This is not something the Mod team has access to.

    ^This.

    Write down or capture a screen shot of the error message you see when you try to access TDPRI. You should send that to the forum admin if requested.

    My Guesses: You are not personally banned, as you can log in from your phone. I'm assuming your phone is connecting 100% mobile and is not connecting through your home Internet connectivity, as you don't get the error message about your ISP when you use your phone. Likely there's a previous TDPRI abuser who used, or is using, your ISP and the address of your ISP itself has been blocked.

    There was a recent issue with someone repeatedly creating accounts and posting nonsense posts. Mods made a comment that they blocked IP addresses to make it stop. Long shot, but maybe the posts were from the same ISP.

    Ok, I'll do that, thanks! It isn't really an issue for me personally as I'm on my phone like 99% of the time, but I'm worried I'll actually get banned, which would really be a downer :/

    I live in the northern Bavarian provinces, life isn't very exciting here so maybe some farmer's kid got bored and started trolling Internet sites haha.

    Changed it, haha. When I opened my account, I saw that I was listed as female, so I fixed that as well :cool:

    Yep. Probably wise to change your profile rather than your anatomy, "not that there's...."

    Hey! I love the new pic. You can't go wrong with dogs. That's my Kutya over there to the left.

    That is actually where it gets weird. My phone is connected to my Fritzbox WiFi exactly the same as my laptop. I'm going let the admin know about it, but I really don't want to hassle them as I'm still a non-paying member.

    Hmm, just a random thought, I wonder if an ad blocker may have caused a problem. I recently started using the Opera browser and it has very powerful ad-blocking built in.

    Your pic inspired me to use that one of my Leni :)

    Turn off Opera's ad blocking and try again.

    Do you use a porn blocker? Maybe it’s blocking the guitar porn. :D

    SOLVED! That's what it was, and now it makes sense. I wasn't thinking about ad blocking when I tried Opera, I just wanted to test a different browser. And I don't want block ads here at all, I know it's the only way I can support the site at the moment.

    Happy happy :)

    Thanks to all who replied above :)
