My friend tried to make an account using my computer and it said I was IP banned??? I've only ever gotten one warning while using this computer and I didn't even get suspended so why would I be IP banned?? I'm so lost

    Some people are IP banned for no reason, like me. Tel your friend to use another computer/tablet/phone or other device where she can sign up. This usually has to do with warnings/suspensions but I'm not really that clear on it.

    Im sure she prolly got suspended or community banned or something like that......thats the only way to be ip banned unless it was done by an admin

    if it was done by a admin then they wouldnt be able to even get on the site through that IP and most likely as pooja said you where probably community banned without knowledge

    This account matches one using the F word and some other fun things, so I am betting those are related to the ban.

    Most likely cause is one of the accounts linked to your IP is permanently banned for whatever reason, and by the look of the list that pops up when IP checking you, those are a lot of accounts.

    That's just an occasional bug. But yeah, if an alternate account was banned, that leads to an IP ban.

    Leads to a signup ban... which is actually a moderator generated suggestion. So we don't have the signup wars with spammers.

    My suggestion was that when someone is suspended, do not allow new signups from that IP for an hour. What they actually implemented is when an IP is moderator suspended some number of times, it gets signup banned forever.

    @e.mccormick forever? of as long as one of the accounts is suspended? Usually those fake accounts are permanently suspended.

    Banne from making new accounts. This has resulted in many proxies getting signup banned thanks to spammers, etc.

    We can unsuspend them. Would that lift the signup ban?

    Reviews on that are mixed. I have tried it and had it work and tried it and had it fail... since the implementaton was never documented to the mods, no way to know why.

    I wonder if it was implemented retroactively, in that case my IP would be banned too from all the testing haha

    How is an IP ban effective? Can't they just get on another computer and make a new account with it?

    If the network goes though a NAT/PAT router, basic home router, then the entire network is banned. If it uses a proxy and the proxy has been banned, then it is banned. Otherwise, the change could work.

    There was one of the student admins that had IP access and used that to track down the source of one bad abuser. Ended up being a school. So they contacted the school, got the IT department there involved, and they tracked it to the machine when it was happening. Teen was using a library machine to do this... The other admins were not very happy with the student admin for doing it all on his own, but from what I gather, Farmdawg and Shadow did some similar things with official sanction.
