Hi Hyperduel,

We could not find any issues. Your account and Ip haven't been blocked and your avatar still shows on all your posts. It also means you can login via your account.

It might be something at your end.

Cheers,

Hi there Cpt, thanks for looking into this for me.

Okay I restested logging into the site with both browsers just now (Chrome & Firefox) with my normal IP and the issue still persists...it throws this error in each (with all ad-blocking disabled too I might add)...

Error
Your login attempt has been blocked. Reason: Too many failed login attempts.

I can however log in using a proxy IP...then browse the site again with my normal IP as I usually do.

It's all very strange if the login blocking isn't being done by your site...?

I noticed an HTML class you use for the actual message...

<div class="alert alert-error">

Maybe it's a 3rd party service like ReCaptcha then...? That service works fine for me on other sites however, so I'm not sure exactly...if it blocks on a per site level or not. But yet it works fine for actually posting in this thread, so I doubt it's that.

It seems like the site itself is somehow IP filtering for logins.

Anyhow that's the current situation for me...I mean I can still log in using a roundabout way, like I am doing right now, but this error is perplexing as it shouldn't really be occurring...on a permanent basis especially.

PS: Could you please at least delete the anon post in this thread with my posted IP, thanks, I didn't realize it would be publically viewable.

Hi Web.Tech.Plus.Team,

I just retested and can confirm that logging in through Steam / Social Media buttons also results in the same error for me (I tried them all).
