    I'd like to share this tip because it has been extremely useful to me in school and various other circumstances.

    Telling everyone you're leaving GBATemp for good and coming back a few hours later is a surefire way to make friends and garner attention.

    Away from this shithole
    Other than the predictable sex joke about having a gay orgy party to share tips here's mine: if you feed yourself by reading online drama you will soon get fat and start sweating like a pig. And when people will ask you why you weight so much then run away crying it's all their fault and you will get a Steam achievement.
    Also, don't do drugs, just smoke them.

    You would be surprised.

    A couple years back I used to use Opera Mini to log in on the Temp when I was on the go, I didn't have a proper smart phone at the time so this was really my only option and it worked well enough. One time it just stopped working - it kept maintaining that my IP is banned, but it couldn't have been, I haven't done anything and I could log in to my account just fine from my desktop and the desktops at university. I took the matter to the higher-ups at the time, we had a colourful conversation about the issue, they went through the trouble of checking the banned IP ranges of my entire mobile network and the results were negative - nothing was banned. In the end I mentioned that I was using Opera Mini - "Oh, that browser uses its own Opera-powered proxy, that's banned." "Why?" "Don't remember. Must've been some spammer, so we banned the whole range. It's cool now, you can log on.". That was a while back, oh yes! :rofl2:

    So yeah. Not only can you ban dynamic IP's by banning the whole IP range, you can ban whole browsers if they use proxies of their own. ;O;

    ^ Well then if that's the case, then it also causes random people to effectively get IP banned as well.

    yeah that's what I meant, it's impractical because of the collateral banage

    IIRC Opera's proxy sends the original IP to the server as well.

    ...and whoever runs the server will care about a non-standard response why? Most popular proxies were banned at the time to cull down spamming - it worked! :rofl2:
