    Welp, this.
    If you have been having issues with connecting to the forums, I have now whitelisted the following ISPs for use on the server. If you have issues of spottiness (or have to have this message relayed to you), let me know.

    Alice DSL
    Corbina
    Oi
    Orange Slovensko
    Telecom Italia
    Tiscali
    VTR

    This should take care of the majority of issues that were arising.

    Is it a coincidence that three of those ISPs are Italian? :v:

    All right. Tested for some hours and everything is working great. Other guys I asked also confirm they can visit the forums with no problems at all.

    Many thanks Scarred Sun. You're truly the best.

    Nice. Thanks Scarred Sun!
     
  7. Out of curiosity, would that have anything to do with this:

    Apart from from being at top on each page, I get the above errors when clicking on Topic links directly from main board page and when PMing and it nothing else.

    Is it normal that I see this:<!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Hourly registration attempts exceeded!
    Press your back button and try something else.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->When I try to see <a href="http://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?act=Online&CODE=listall&sort_key=click&sort_order=desc&show_mem=reg&st=0" target="_blank">this page</a>, which worked fine until... 10 minutes ago?

    edit: interestingly enough, the page itself seems to work fine, even when the parameters are given in the POST format. But if I try to feed the parameters in the GET format, I get that error message.

    edit2: if this is not related to the "Firewall ISPs cleared" topic, please split in a new thread in the Site Affairs forum. I somehow assumed it was related but maybe it's not.

    edit3: now it works again. Trash altogether, I guess :|

    edit4: it does it again so I don't know what to think :|

    Well, I am getting a different thing, so maybe I should report it anyway:<!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Warning: unlink(/home/sonicret/domains/forums.sonicretro.org/public_html/zbblock/vault/registration_attempts.csv) [function.unlink]: Permission denied in /home/sonicret/domains/forums.sonicretro.org/public_html/zbblock/zbblock.php on line 262<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
