Eeeek! About 20 mins ago, I had my first Forbidden message while I was replying to bbdave's layout post. I logged out, and then tried logging back in again, and couldn't even do that. Forbidden again!!

Then I tried my tablet, Forbidden.

Phone, Forbidden.

It's working again now, obviously. But it appears that something strange is going on!  :hmmm:

I don't think it has, sorry to say.
Up until today never had the message and had been on the forum on and off all morning but then wanted to post a reply and got the message.
I couldn't look at anything on the forum without getting this message.
I had been logged on and posting without issue before the problem .

Only way I could get back on was to completely shut my laptop down and restart.

Testing testing testing......

If this reply goes through okay, my iPad is fine, as it has been for the last few days.

If it doesn't, you're not reading this. ;)

Hi

I still seem to be getting the forbidden message too, I had it once yesterday early and once this morning too. I thought I was going to just get it again as it flashed up but it vanished. I seem to have to exit and reload the site to get rid of it.

I had it yesterday morning and couldn't log back in. Even rebooting the computer didn't solve the problem.

Suddenly in the afternoon everything was OK.

When I use Google Chrome (on PC with Windows 7 and on an Android Tablet) I also get the "forbidden" message.
Strange thing is when using the Windows Internet Explorer I have no problems at all, just have to remember to use it instead of Google Chrome.

Had it maybe 20 times this lunch time -could not look at any forum posts at all.  Also when the forum loads it brings up the "short" list of few posts -I usually explore them then go to the "forum" tag and scroll to the bottom for the bigger new post list (the "forum" tag and strangely some of the mailbox tags when logged in are usually always missing which I think is due to ABP but I know where the buttons are now!) and it wouldn't let me load the forum proper either.  To be fair it may be a Firefox issue.  I've been having problems accessing via my tablet but that's affecting BBC news and RMWEB also -you just can't click on any links (andriod but some unrememberable system like lollipop stick or something like that).  RMWEB went through a "forbidden" page via windows but only maybe lasted 48hrs on PC about 10 days ago.  Everything PC-wise seems to be going through massive updates again at the moment though.  Andriod I cannot figure out at all after years of perseverance so it just does what it does.

By the way, I have 2 emails from NGF for this -one saying "thread deleted," then another saying "thread moved" -but everything seems the same?  I got no PM's??
