So I tried to change my password, because I was auto-logged-on to a couple of devices but not for a new one I've obtained, but forgot my old password.

To change my password, I had to provide my email address and answer a question, which was "Who scored the goal in the Jets 2008 grand final win" or similarly worded to that. I answered "Joel Griffiths", "Griff" and "Griffo" and was told on all occasions that the answer to the question was incorrect.

This is a foz issue.

That isn't a forum issue its a ****ing disgrace.

Was talking to someone the other week who told me Mark Bridge scored the winning goal in the GF. I pointed out to him that bloke never played for us so he is mistaken and by the time we were done he had even tried blaming Michael Bridges for it also.

I set the record straight and he now knows it was Griffo

Look, I don't want to make a big deal about this, but there's a new foz member, cymonster, who has posted just six times, yet already has a dire reputation and is "infamous around these parts". Almost everyone else, meanwhile, has a "reputation beyond repute".

I just think the foz needs to introduce a little nuance to these gradings.

(If you agree with this post, consider sharing some +ve rep with me. If you disagree, give cymonster some -ve rep.)

Don't know whats up but yesterday got home from work and was unable to get on the foz all arvo and night.

Kept coming up with the message make sure the address is correct / you are connected to the internet etc

Now I was online as I had no issue with any other website at all

Even tried with the laptop instead of the tablet and still the same.
Even tried google search and then clicking various page links but still no success
Even tried with different web browsers IE Mozilla Chrome still no success

No other issues with my equipment viruses/adware etc that I am noticing so not really certain what is going on

When got to work today noticed a pile of traffic on the foz yesterday so it is not like the entire site was down

In general have noticed a few stability issues with error messages appearing after posting.
Did have an issue about a week ago where I was on the foz and then for whatever reason I could not get back on it until I went to work.

Anyone else having problems with the foz??

Our webhost moved us to a new server and your computer is probably looking for the website at the old server address.

Another night without being able to access

Will try that with clearing cache etc.

Did actually try going in with a google search for the front page but still no use. Whether that is related to stored info in the cache is beyond me.

I still keep getting issues from time to time but I have a fix

Whether you can do it is a big issue but turn the works wifi off and restart it.

Works everytime for me at home

Pain in the arse at times but guaranteed success rate



Whatever the issue is causing it seems to have a hell of a lot to do with opening a posting dialogue box.

As soon as you want to post something it CAN play up. It is worse in the PM replies than replying to a thread.

Just sitting back and reading threads have no issues but as soon as you try to post it CAN happen

You are viewing the foz using the default mobile theme
Scroll down the bottom of the page, select Full Site. Which should switch you and it will be a white and blue theme.

Actually crashed the thing again at work just then. Couldn't get on again
Took the internet out restarted PC and that seems to have fixed it.


The thing I was doing when it crashed was the exact same thing I was doing yesterday trying to send a PM.

Might be an issue with PM script or something

Lquiquer know more PM's for you :rof:

I try sending you a PM and it ****s up my foz experience


I just got home first thing I did was switch my WiFi off and restarted it.

Got on the foz straight away no problems I then hit the POST QUICK REPLY button to reply to something and the thing started loading up at dial up speeds failed to post and I was not able to get back into the foz
So had to go kill the WiFi again

There is an issue somewhere as I am only getting issues with this site


I can get on here on my phone but not my work computer... In worried that means I'll actually do some work!
Just seems to keep coming up saying

"this webpage is not available ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT"

And yes I've always got on at work, we don't have any restrictions here.


I still keep getting issues from time to time but I have a fix

Whether you can do it is a big issue but turn the works wifi off and restart it.

Works everytime for me at home

Pain in the arse at times but guaranteed success rate



Whatever the issue is causing it seems to have a hell of a lot to do with opening a posting dialogue box.

As soon as you want to post something it CAN play up. It is worse in the PM replies than replying to a thread.

Just sitting back and reading threads have no issues but as soon as you try to post it CAN happen

I actually somehow managed to lock myself off the site completely last night - what had happened was that something went wrong when trying to post and the server firewall blocked my IP so I couldnt even access the domain. This was on my home wifi network, I was able to get on by tethering my phone - which changed my IP.
If anyone is still having issues accessing the site - try accessing the site homepage (not the foz homepage) from the connection you were having issues with. This way I know that you are having issues with the site not the foz itself.
If you are having this issue, please find out the IP you think is blocked (its quite simple just google "what is my IP") and then access the foz via a different IP and PM me the blocked IP. I will then get it unlocked.

If you are having other issues, again please post them up in here.

Update: Apparently users have been falling foul of the server firewall due to false positive results for one of the firewall rules. Our webhost support have excluded the rule so that it doesnt happen again, but as I stated before I will need to unblock peoples already blocked IP's as they report them to me.

We use captcha - its why we have more spammers recently. In order to make it easier for newbies to sign up unfortunately it also makes it easier for spammers.

I will reiterate what I have posted before - DO NOT REPLY IN ANY SPAM THREADS. As soon as they get a response, they will just spam even more.

Ok, I'm not sure it's really a foz issue but somebody a bit more tech savvy may be able to explain it.
When I try to access the foz (and I've only had this issue with the forum) on my iPhone/Mac (Apple slave) it just doesn't load and times out. I'll try another website straight away and it works, back to foz, times out.

It seems to only affect one network at a time though.
So i have 2 wifi networks I connect with and my phone data, and occassionally or once a week, one of them won't let me access the foz for a few days. So my wifi in sydney will block access on my phone (and about 50% of the time, my laptop) and I'll try to use my phones data and it works. And vice versa, sometimes the phone data doesn't work, and I need to connect to my wifi and it works perfectly. And as I said when it happens it generally lasts a few days.
Any suggestions why this happens?

Dunno if it is a foz issue or just the shitty mobile skin... but whenever I try and read it on my phone, all quoted text is dark gray text on black background meaning it's almost unreadable.

Is this another limitation of the mobile skin? If so, has someone in vBulletin land created a free to use better mobile skin we could install?

Hi, what's up? :)

First of all welcome to the forum!
You are going to learn a lot in here.

Let me introduce myself.
I've been doing affiliate marketing since 2011,
and I was lucky enough to become a millionaire at 23.
After some time, I wanted to make other people successed, as I did.
So I opened a blog about it: silly-hat.net
I didn't want it to be a costly program or something.
I'm just writing the exact things that I know to show the world that it's possible.

By the way, I'm even not a native English speaker lol.
But it doesn't stop me :)
I hire american native speaker to correct my grammar on the posts.
It works great so far and I get a lot of love from people :)
Just wanted to give you a heads up about it.

Everything is possible.
If you have any question regarding my blog or internet marketing in general,
I'm here to help you!

I have learnt heaps here, it's true.

it's not something the admins do or have done to the forum or your account

you seem to be able to resolve it by clearing your cookies or logging in on another computer

easiest way is to log out of your account, open a new incognito/private mode/porn browsing window and log in from there - after one or two posts you should be able to log back in normally and the problem should be sorted
