Hi,

To improve the security of this website and Forum some extra software, a Firewall, has been added to try and stop the bad guys doing naughty things.

However a side effect for legitimate Members of the Forum is that if you fail to enter your Password correctly after 5 attempts, the system will decide you are a very naughty boy and block your access to the website for awhile, before eventually allowing you to try again. The system considers you a potential threat, possibly an automated Bot trying to guess a password, and if this continues too many times it will eventually block you out for eternity.

If you find this is the case, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and asked to be put back on Santa's Nice List.

The software is also warning me about users with weak passwords like 12345, password, password1, asdfg so if this applies to you please change your password in your Forum Profile to something less likely to be guessed by the bad guys or they could use your account to do naughty things to the Forum.
