The irony of this topic is that you won't be able to access it when you need it. If you could see it, you wouldn't be having this problem. grin

If you are interested, I suggest you email this thread to yourself, so that you have it if the need arises.

No, you are not banned.

Your IP address is not banned. If your IP address were banned, you would see the header for MA (banner, menu, etc). You would see the message: This IP address has been banned from the board.

This problem is either caused by the Marriage Advocates site being down, your computer being unable to reach the site, or an unlikely combination of the two. (Highly unlikely...as in: Go buy a lottery ticket.)

Is the Marriage Advocates site up?

Check our Facebook and Twitter to see if we've posted any messages about a site outage.

Can you reach the Marriage Advocates site?

Can you PING marriageadvocates.com? How to Ping a website

If the request times out, try pinging google.com (ping google.com). If the ping to google.com times out, your internet connection is hosed. Call your Internet Service Provider.

If you can ping google.com and receive a reply and the ping to marriageadvocates.com times out, our server is probably down, and we're probably working on it. Just to make sure we know, though, please send a helpful email to admin@marriageadvocates.com telling us your ping to our site timed out.

If you receive an error saying that the lookup failed, that means your DNS (Domain Name Server) was unable to resolve the name marriageadvocates.com to our IP address. This is not an error on MA's end. As such, we cannot fix it for you. However, I will tell you how to fix it, because I just roll in helpful ways like dat. lol

Step one is to reboot your computer. Does that fix it?

Step two is to flush your DNS. If a reboot hasn't resolved the issue and if you have connectivity to other sites and internet protocols, you may need to flush your DNS.

Step three is to override your DNS for marriageadvocates.com with a Hosts file. If step one and two do not resolve the problem, and you receive this problem frequently, the third and final step is to override the DNS look-up and permanently map the marriageadvocates.com domain name with our IP address.

How to edit your hosts file on Windows

How to edit your hosts file on Mac

You want to point marriageadvocates.com to 72.167.167.243. That means you need a line in your hosts file that says:

"72.167.167.243 marriageadvocates.com #MA DNS Override"

Hi AR, for some reason I am sometimes unable to go to the Carport site. About 50% of the time I can go there and post on there also. Then the other 50% of the time, I cannot go to the Carport or post on there. Is it my computer that is the problem? Sometimes I can post there on my computer but not on the laptop or vice versa. Let me know please if there is anything I should do to get access again.

Kitty,

As you were previously informed, you are not supposed to have access to any restricted forum. This is because you are on probation until December 8, 2015 due to your TOS infraction here.

We've had this discussion each time you are on probation. I'm not sure why you seem to keep forgetting.

Perhaps if you bookmark the thread linked above, that would help you remember.

Yes, we have a bug that seems to give you permissions that you shouldn't have (Carport and Thunderdome). Each time this happens, I correct the problem by removing the permissions that you should not have.

Regards,
AR
