I've had the same problem at work, oops, probably shouldn't be trying to reply at work. The main problem I always had was trying to decipher the code I'm supposed to type in. I just reply/post from home now.

I have that problem, but only when I try and log on from my iPhone. No problems with any of my other computers. I'm running Firefox.

I was talking to Ryan about this and it my be an issue with the anti-spam setup on the site.

The reason, as far as I understand it, with my limited infernal machine experience, is that if you are the kind that does not log off of the site when you leave or has it set up to auto log on, then eventually the site will think that you are attempting to log on numerous times and therefore you get this message...

At least I think that is what the problem is....I'm not sure of the exact fix but Ryan and Scott will look into it.

Clear as mud?

Still looking into it. I sacrificed a goat to the computer gods but I guess that wasn't good enough. Anybody have a llama?

Sacrifying a goat is not unheard of, even in the aviation business.... :prayer:

Hi Scott.

When these troubles appears, is there an increase of traffic on the forum ?

Visibly the majority of phpBB3 forums have the same trouble, and the most probable cause looks to be massive bot attack: a robot lists the accounts available on the forum and try randomly different passwords for these accounts until the forum responds "nuts" and ask for a visual identification.

It's a good thing this visual function now exists, because in the past, there was no limit of tentative and the robots could tried to login infinitely. Most of the time the servers crashed under the load.

Basically, the forum is not in fault, and is well defended,

Scott or Ryan, if you have a detailled logs of the connection on the web server, it's perhaps possible to see if it's always the same ip adress used to attack the forum. In this case, if could be possible to block these ip and avoid these bot massive attack.

If I can help, don't hesitate to ask me...

Regards

Loïc
