A few months ago, we had installed a work-board module which allows our visitors to track the progress of our ongoing projects.
This work-board has been accessible via our home page and Module's menu on the left hand block. At the same time, there seemed to be a problem with the work-board, where visitors would try and access the task lists, which was a breakdown of tasks for each running project, and instantly get banned from our site for a period of 24 hours.
While we have been constantly clearing up the blocked IP addresses from the above problem, until today, we could not find the reason this was happening.
After much debugging and troubleshooting, we located the code that was responsible for the invalid ip address blocking and have corrected it.
We apologize for the delayed resolution and hope you can now all read and track our projects progress without problems.
If any visitor or member experiences problems similar to the above described, we ask that they notify us as soon as possible.
