Banned Again

Went and got myself banned from MMH for to many downloads to fast. I understand why it's like that, it's just to many neat mods I'd like to try. Kinda like a bull in a china shop. Anyway my question is, how long is the duration of the ban and is it permanent? Because it's going on a week now and eveyday I check I get the same message Forbidden To Access This Server.  Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance. :saddy:

Near as I can tell, Fliggerty will have to be the one to remove the ban. I know a tool to reset the bans is being worked on, but I think it is being done manually at this time.

Thank you for posting the issue.

Thank you for telling me whats going on. I've got to learn some self restraint.

Just so you know, DLing more than 100 files in 24 hours will get you banned. It would seem this is what's happening.

If you are trying to do a bulk DL, you could talk to Fligg about setting that up. :D

Might just do that. That's not what I was trying to do, I was just on a roll and kept going. Lost all my mods when our old computer went and my wife got me a 936gb external harddrive. So I've been a bit overzealous about finding the mods I lost. Now that I know what the limit is I'll  be sure to use some self control and be more careful.Guess I should have asked what the limit was in the first place. Live and learn I guess. lol!

I'll need your IP address to get it removed.  Go to whatismyip.com to get it if you don't know it.

My ip address is 50.83.77.150 and again sorry Fliggerty. I know your probably a very busy person and the fact you had to take time to fix my screw up bugs me. So again sorry and I'll do better in the future so you won't have to fix it.

I've removed the block.

I am working on a more reliable blocking system that will have a better way of detecting legitimate usage...so this hopefully won't be a problem in the future.  Sorry it took me so long to remove it, I was out of town and not always able to get online.

Thank you again Fliggerty. No problem, like I said I know your probably a very busy person. The fact you took the time to fix it makes me a happy camper.
