If you can't log in via the proxy then you may have been excluded.
It happened to me, apparently for innocently posting a link to another audio forum which is out of favour at VE. (That was my assumption - I was never told why my access was denied.)

Hi,
Sorry, but it's not a bug so there's nothing to fix.

It works like this: the IP addresses of hackers/port scanners/spammers are temporarily redirected to Google and a report made to their ISP. Traffic from known sources of spam is also logged. Repeated attacks result in a permanent ban of the IP range that contains the problem IP addresses. There was always a possibility that this would affect a small percentage of legitimate users whose IP addresses fall within these ranges (especially if you are in a spammer hot spot like Nigeria, Russia, China or India) but it's unavoidable when the ISPs in question don't act on abuse reports. With just me moderating the site in my spare time (it's not a business) it's impossible to deal with the problem any other way. I'm sure that big, commercial sites employ people full time to deal with abuse but owners of small, personal websites like mine don't have that option

Again, I'm sorry if you're one of the few affected but this is a problem with your ISP and the idiots they allow to abuse it.

Regards,
JaS

Hi Jas,

Could you let me know why I'm locked out of VE. I've never had any problems over the years but I'm still getting bounced back to Google. I've tried accessing via Safari but I'm getting the same result. If I've done anything wrong could you let me know so I might have the chance to make things right?
Hope to hear back

Read post # 24 - this probably has something to do with your access issue unfortunately. Perhaps you can use a proxy server to access VE?

I'm in the UK and have been a member and contributor to VE for several years. I can access HIFI engine I'm unfortunately technically challenged - I just hope JAS can help

Using a proxy server is simple and non-technical: Just locate the server's page (e.g. goproxing.com) and enter vinylengine.com in the appropriate box.

Hi,

it might be interesting to know the reason of the non-functionality for people who understand the background. I don´t. I´m simply interested in a positive result or to know what I could do to help solve the problem. I´m certainly no spammer or ´weirdo from another planet´. I just like to red and contribute as I did until shortly.
