Default Re: 2012 Nexus Event Unknown Form of Energy comes our way!

Everyone relax.. I am sure it is just a misunderstanding and a mistake on the side of some Moderator. Banning IP ranges can get very tricky (especially when many people are behind a NAT - having the same IP address). I've had a lot of dealing with Phpbb forums and lots of banning so it is very normal for innocent people to get affected while banning ranges for certain other people.

So just do what Anchor says.. email them the affected IP addresses before jumping to any conclusions.

I expect this scenario to repeat itself since now the forum is free for all and as such will have to employ banning to many users.. Maybe the IP banned screen should be rewritten with instructions and explanation that the cause could be unintentional as it can happen so easily
