    Has happened to me as well for the past few days. On both, home internet and mobile connection.

    I get this daily as well. I'll scroll on FB or check out Instagram and reload SSO a few minutes later and it works fine.

    So, yea, it isn't getting any better. Still the same problems... Any other forum recommendation where we should go, just in case SSO is getting totally unusable?

    Here to tell that I also have 401 woes. Any news on a fix from the mods/devs yet?

    Not sure how exactly you propose someone would do that. You'd have to convince this Alex person give up their control of the site, since you can't do anything forcefully. Arguably, nothing stops anyone from hosting another similar forum and inviting this community to it. severalstrings.org anyone?

    I think it's much more likely that there's a routing problem or a basic flub in the sites spam detection and just nobody has bothered to fix it. Something like 50% of the time the route to the site takes a particular path that's getting blocked 'cause it goes through a particular machine or something, who knows.

    Getting the issue intermittently. It wasn't working previously and now it does. I don't know for how long though.

    Turns out sevenslings is already owned by someone, but severalstrings isn't registered yet. Who's with me?!

    Is it fixed? I seem to be having no problems now. :)

    Or else maybe I am just lucky for a short time.

    severalstrings dot org would be funny. :lol: It's not like there haven't already been a half dozen offshoots of this site, though. The problem is that forums are not at all on an upswing anymore, so the odds of a new one surviving more than a year are probably pretty darn low.

    i got banned for a few days, apparently there was some shitty activity from my ip address. a bot attack, or whatever, i don't know much about these things.
    i did an antivirus sweep, found nothing.
    today i tried to log in, obviously i could.
    if someone could advise on what to do about this situation, that would be great. i wouldn't like it to happen again.

    Yup, seemed to be a problem with the site, and now (maybe) resolved after a few days of problems.

    Hivelocity is hosting this site - they more than likely updated their DDoS prevention policy for inbound connections to be a bit more aggressive than what is necessary. There's a link on their site to contact technical support if anyone feels like opening up a case
