A Problem for me in the forum.
Posted 08 March 2013 - 01:03 PM
For 2-3 days per month for some strange reason I can't post in the forum/reply to pm's/editing my posts etc unless I use a VPN to hide my IP adress like I am currently. This has been happening for a very long time for me now (I think for the last four months) and I've been waiting all this time to confirm if this is just a co-incidence or an actual problem and it's clearly the latter in my opinion.
What I have tried during periods like this.
Switching Browsers (Doesn't work)
Use CCleaner like PrometheusX suggested (Doesn't work)
Resetting my Router (Doesn't work)
Clearing my browsers cache (Doesn't work)
Use a VPN (The only thing that gives my posting ability back)
Using a VPN makes browsing the forum a tad annoying and very slow. I don't know if it's something here on my end or what and I was hoping I could get help on this issue.
All help will be appreciated.

Additionally, can you describe exactly how the failures occur? Does the page fail to load? Is there a visible error?

The Failure only occurs only when I try to either post in a topic, try to edit one of my current posts, reporting a topic or when I try to send a PM. I can browse through the forum with no problems with my default IP.
I have provided an image below to show what happens when I try to do anything stated above with my default IP other than browsing the forum.

|...it's possible that your router or ISP is detecting POST requests and for some reason hijacking them and returning a 503 response.|
I don't see a reason why my IP adress would be blacklisted which is why I thought that couldn't be the problem in the first place. Is there any way I can stop my internet service provider or Router hijacking my POST requests and returning a 503 response?
