@polecat The forum was having issues last few days. Telus acknowledged the problem and was looking for the root cause. “Banned” and connection request errors, was one of the few issue(s). You weren’t banned just a glitch in the software. If you tried to log in enough times, you could eventually sign in/post. Seems to have been fixed or at least stabilized tonight.
@xray The picture uploading has been a problem for a while.

Hi everyone, it's definitely not you - it's affecting admin/mods as well.
We're working with our vendors to root out the issues. It might take some time as the root cause is proving to be elusive but we'll give the all clear once I have confirmation we're good to go.
Thanks so much for your patience!
This is a test message. I composed a response to a question here the other day, and then lost it all when I tried to post it and I got a message saying I was banned. Have not bothered to come back since.
I've experienced that as well. Sometimes the reply actually goes through eventhough you get that error. You should check for your reply before posting another one.
I've also got into the habit of copying any long reply to the clipboard before clicking on Post just in case.
