I tried to get on here a few times and got an odd message. Says "You are banned for using an unrecognized user agent"! Just thought you might like to know. Very Happy

I couldn't use the boards when I went to Firefox 3. Had to go back to 2.something for it to work again.

We are working on it. Unfortunately I don't know if there is a fix on our side. It has something to do with the "user agent" of new browsers like firefox. Old browsers work, but new ones don't have a user agent, so sites like mine think they are spammy. You can fix your browsers user agent in properties and all that. The site will work on regular browsers.

Thanks

John at Merlyn's

Well, I have kind of trouble shot the problem a little more in depth. I use both ie7 and Firefox 3. Just trying multiple time will eventually get you in with either and its definatley a more of a problem with Firefox. I changed my firefox agent to report itself as various other browsers but just brute force attempts seems to work.

This is fixable in the dragonfly control panel in the "security" block. I tried to fix it but it appears my rights have been a bit deactivated :p
