    Hello OcUKers,

    I think this may relate to me getting locked out of my account earlier, but I now can only access the forum using a VPN. I'm guessing my IP was blocked due to the account lock-out - does this block lapse or is it permanent?

    Sorry for the faff!

    Hugh

    Any ideas? Still blocked without using a VPN.

    Yup, no change. Only the VPN seems to 'fix' it unfortunately.

    Ping one of the admins, they'll be able to tell you if your IP has been blocked/unblock it.
