Its been here since early this morning, I have tried to report it, but it gives me a 404 error code. I see the Mods are posting in the retail section, maybe you can check out the off topic, and delete the spam.

Thanks. Just removed it. I'll be popping in more as BF gets closer, but you can message me directly if you notice spam and the report feature doesn't work.

Not the right forum, I know, but has anyone else been getting messages about being permanently banned? It's been happening at least 95% of the time. Even when I'm not logged in so I can't even *read* forums. Seems like this was an issue last year too.

Looking like everything should be back to normal now.

It's actually not fixed yet. I am still having issues. I actually had to go through a proxy just to post this.

At least little more stable than before

Must have been pretty bad for mods to be getting banned too...

Yay! I'm back!!!!!! I must admit, getting the whole banned thing freaked me out. I should have waited a little longer before panicking lol. But I'm glad it's fixed, at least on my end. And hopefully it will all be resolved soon for everyone! Big thanks to everyone who worked hard on fixing things :)

It’s one thing not to want something; it’s another to be told you can’t have it.

I, too, encountered the banned message. Looks like I am back though. Or, at least I am for now.

Believe me, we were panicked here at the office too. :lol: We instantly had IT get on it.

IT said it should be back to normal for the most part, if you run into an issue you may be on the 'bad' server (that they're working on now I think) and if you refresh your page a couple times it should load up normally. If I hear anything else I'll let you guys know.

If something weird keeps happening, try to take a screenshot (if possible) and send it to webmaster@bfads.net please! It helps IT be able to pinpoint what's going on faster.

The report spam button is still not working, The guitar post looks like, spam/advertisement.
