Explanation of the massive ban on Aug 7th
339 Posts

On August 7th, 2022, a member of the forum had tried to reset their password. They had failed the 3 attempts of entering the 6 digit code, resulting in a supposed temporary IP ban.

However, it turned out this ban was not exclusive to the IP of the alleged member. This ban affected every guest user (logged in users were unaffected).

After thorough investigation, this turned out to be a bug of how ban checking works. There were no targeted attacks.

The bug has been fixed.
