First time it's ever done that... In all the years I've been here


I did put up a post a month or so ago saying that people may get blocked if they have more than five tries to login with an incorrect password. It is a new'ish security measure to stop the automated processes, bots, from being able to have to many goes at guessing a password and gaining access. The block only last for an hour the first time but it will prevent all access, even just viewing, to the website and forum. After your hour in the sin bin is up you have 5 more attempts to remember your password.
