    Hi,
    I have already tried e-mailing and Pming and nobody responded at all, so I have no option left but to post in the forum.

    My IP is a Comcast home connection based in Chicago and is not a VPN or Proxy, but I get the IP Blocked screen when trying to access GBAtemp. I know I haven't done anything to deserve an IP ban and you can see that my forum account is clear of any issue. (Obviously I'm not posting from that IP right now since I can't, hello from my phone...) as far as I know nobody else in my house uses GBAtemp. My IP is static. Proxy check tool comes back negative.

    What is going on and should I be contacting someone else other than the contacts listed that I've already tried?

    The irony is that I probably could get past the firewall by using a proxy or VPN instead of my legitimate connection, which seems to be the opposite effect of what was intended.

    Could be a previously banned IP.

    And you said that you tried PMming Costello/TJ_Cool?
    You could try p1ngpong then as well.

    Or you could wait for one of them to message you back. They're not on here 24/7; they have lives. Just be patient. Plus, you can log on with your alternate connection until they get back to you. ;)
