DKF forum index access issue/problem?

Is anyone else unable to access/browse the DKF? I've tried a couple of times for the last 10-ish days and keep getting this screen...................



What am I doing wrong?

Another message said that I was banned? I've never been a member. Yet :)


?

    Wow, a pre-ban before you are even a member?! You must have done some hardcore ****.

    It seems like a change has been made, either intentional or accidental. You must now log in and be a member before you can access the site. The warning currently states ... Only registered members are allowed to access this section.

    Thanks, Paul. It must be a mistake? WHY wouldn't someone be able to read the forum posts? I get you need to be registered to post. It happened about 3 weeks ago too, but only lasted about 3 days then come good again. Now it's been like this for at least 10 days.

    3 days and a mistake seems plausible. However perhaps it was a test of an impending policy change.

    Now for 10 days straight is quite strange if accidental. Perhaps it is now for the longer term, and perhaps as a further test, or perhaps current gaming issues have seen this policy implemented. This is all speculation. Just contact Andrew Barrow or Jeremy Young, they will have the answers.

    I haven't seen a definitive answer given anywhere, but I doubt that it's a big deal. Someone said in a discord group that the last time this happened it was a bandwidth issue, maybe google bots were messing it up by accessing lots of pages, maybe too many requests slowing down the server.

    Even as a member I've had to log in twice in a row in order to get in many times, especially lately, don't know why.

    You could be right, Bill.

    At least there was a valid reason why I got banned from TG that one time............................

    Bump.

    So one must become a member before being able to view forum posts, is that right?

    If so, why, what happened that such is the case?
