I’m having an issue with the forum where the homepage won’t even load for me on my computers or devices when using my WIFI. The only way I can get on the forum is using my mobile 5G data. I’ve had this issue before but can’t remember what the fix was.

I will not tolerate these ongoing attempts to IP ban me
Did you try clearing your cache?

Yes

I am a Luddite so forgive the stupid question but is there anything that can go wrong with your IP settings or whatever which can cause issues connecting to certain websites?

I ask because in addition to the forum, I’m also having issues connecting to this particular web service I use every day when working from home. Both that web page and FIF were working fine for me yesterday but as of this morning, neither of them are working when using my home internet (which is what I use normally). Every other website I’ve tested works normally and both the forum and this other page work fine when using my mobile hotspot.

Try restarting your router, your ISP should give you a new IP address.

No, it wouldn't be a config thing on your end, and it's doubtful that it's something on the FIF side either. Only possible thing would be if the host has some sort of IPS security stuff running that's blocking you for some reason but that would be odd. Although you said you had issues accessing another website and I think underageladyboys.com does use the same hosting service as us so I guess it's possible.

My guess is that it's a routing issue somewhere in the million hops between you and the site. You can try doing what Fitzy said and unplug your router for a few minutes to give the ISP long enough to release your IP and issue you a new one and see if that helps. I've had the same issue in the past and it's always just cleared itself up.

Nah, but seriously what the fuck should I do? This has NEVER even once happened on the pre update version of FIF. @mods

The forum keeps spazzing out quite frequently for me lately :c
This. It happens so frequently these days (every other time I log in), that it has become an annoyance. I have to regularly clear my cache for it to work, as I said this never happened before the big update a few months ago.
I don’t know if high traffic on the forum has something to do with it, but during games my text box often disappears as well. And another thing which happens now is that when I post a comment, the same comment pops up again in my text box, during high traffic times, which has also never happened pre update.

Just to be clear, I don’t want to be a dickhead about it, if there’s nothing that can be done, so be it.

A few quick updates

- I just did a minor xenforo upgrade but you shouldn't really see any differences

- The SSL cert was set to expire on 30 April so I installed a new one. You may have to clear your browser cache to pick it up if you start seeing expired cert warnings in a week

- I created a 'FIF Black' style for those that wanted a darker theme. Really more like dark grey but that didn't have the same ring to it. For those that have never played with it, you can change the theme via the link on the bottom left of all pages. The FIF Light theme is still the best though

- I created a 'ratings' page where people can rate the players for each match and it will calculate the average. It's just a simple 1-10 for each player, nothing close to the stuff FairyTailed was doing. I'll eventually setup a cron to add a link to the match thread or create a new ratings thread or something, but for the time being there will be a link for each match on the Fixtures page (available on the Inter Data dropdown up top). Note that it will only work for the current season, I'll figure out how to archive stuff after the season is over. Alternatively I guess you could also go here and click on whatever the match date is
where are FIF player ratings? and where is voting happening?
First of all, thanks for the update and thank you for adding the 'FIF Black' style, it does make the forum looks good.
Ratings are also a very nice addition, however, I think good features like these ratings are often overlooked, perhaps due to less visible access to users. How about just adding this feature directly to the sidebar? This will be more obvious for users, at least for desktop users.
Also, although this might be too much to ask for, it would be great if it added a comment feature for each player and maybe an option for voting for the best comments, the results would probably look like the sort of summary that Sempreinter is used to.

I actually dig this interface, player rating and the most recent match result looks really good
