CSS randomly stops working



  • The CSS only works on the team blog and the page I'm creating this post from. Also why did Tiamarth get blocked? His posts don't have anything rule breaking in them.



  • Never mind, I got it working.

    Seems the system thinks he comments "too much," or something and briefly blocks him from time to time.

    Yeah, I had the CSS stop working for me too, for a while today, although only when logged in, and only on the Grey color theme. It resolved itself eventually, so I deleted the post I briefly made about it. The wrong CSS file was getting referenced in the HTML head.

    I similarly got mistakenly banned for a week, a few weeks back, as well. It was rather disconcerting; in addition to not being able log in to Vivaldi.net, I was temporarily IP-blocked at my most frequent IP. Hopefully such spam-detection false-positives can be reduced somehow…

    It turns out my IP address is listed by SORBS (thanks to a member of the Vivaldi staff for notifying me of this), which is bad because the Vivaldi spam filter uses it (among other global blacklist databases) to flag accounts with a blacklisted IP. The problem is, I don't know why I was listed and I've been informed my IP is not available for unlisting. Whatever it is that got me listed happened in 2008, and there's nothing I can do about it short of getting my IP address changed.

    I'd love to switch ISPs, but, unfortunately, there are only two options where I live and it's difficult to change to a different service.

    Thanks for thinking of me ~

    It happened to me a second time, for a week again. :(
    For the time being I'm going to avoid ever posting any external link, as that seems to be at least part of what automatically triggers it.

    Again, Vivaldi staff told me that I was banned so frequently because I was listed by SORBS, but I'd have to agree with you that it seems to happen much more consistently after posting a reply which contains an external link. I've slowed down my posting rate altogether in order to avoid being flagged, as I'd rather be able to lurk on the forums and read threads than be banned and have no access to the community site at all. Seriously, you can't even read the blog when you're banned.
