Two questions please...

1) In the unfortunate event that this wonderful SeaMonkey Board might somehow become unavailable, what other site(s) can/will folks here re-congregate at?

2) When I launch Frank Lion's site seamonkey.boards.net, I get a blank page with a large notice that I've been banned. This cannot be a valid situation. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I had no trouble connecting to that site using Firefox or SeaMonkey.

Dan, I have not participated on that site so it is curious (and troubling) that it says I'm banned using both SeaMonkey and Edge. I've never had any issues with Frank Lion (that I know about)...and where is Frank these days as he hasn't been visible here lately?

How does the site even recognize me as I don't get a chance to log on.

[EDITED TO ADD] I just tried to launch the site using my phone and immediately got the banned message.

Any thoughts?

We see similar problems here and attribute it to gremlins. Have you tried to PM Frank on the forum to ask about the issue?

Dan, yes, no response. And Frank hasn't been seen here in quite some time...at least not by me.

my guess he is on his own forum he had made Peter, FRG might know the URL to that or some MOD

If you're talking about seamonkey.boards.net, I can't get into that site. I left Frank a PM here.

That is the same site as he just used a comma instead of a period by mistake in that post and if you read the OP again you would see he was referring to the same site.

This banning business is weird. If I used http://forums.mozillazine.org with SeaMonkey, I was banned. After I changed the bookmark to hostname plus "/index.php", I was no longer banned. With Webkit browsers, it was the other way around.

Okay, I just now tried https://seamonkey.boards.net/index.php and got into ProBoards but got a popup error message saying something is wrong, try again...and it kept happening. Access denied.

OK, for what its worth, I moderate on another board, and it seems some boards allow banning by IP address, which is a bit useless because most people now are on shared and constantly changing ip's, so only very few people on fixed ip's can be identified by it.

SO, this means that if for some reason your IP is known for spamming activities, someone may have banned it, so you are affected by that, unrelated to anything of yourself.

Otherwise, you should be able to view the site even if you were banned by name or email address, because the site does not know who you are until you attempt to log in.

When you used your phone, did you use it on your local wifi? If so this would have the same basic IP as your computer. You could try this again using your mobile data, and see what happens.

Also, find out your current IP address (type whats my ip in your url bar) and then check this out on the following site: https://cleantalk.org/blacklists

Bingo! Yes, I got in fine when using my phone using mobile data. And, if I am reading it correctly, it appears that my IP address is listed as SPAM on the site you stipulate.

Is there some way to get my IP address cleaned up?

Thanks.

I tested 3 browsers on my iPad. All identify themselves as Safari, but 2 of them identify as the latest version and the other one identifies as a much earlier version of Safari. I got banned with hostname plus the index page by the latest versions but not by the older version.
