Over the weekend I discovered that I could no longer access PipeSmokersForum.

I managed to contact Woody through a mutual friend and he sent the following information and asked that I share it with anyone having trouble.

   Clear your cache
   http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser's-Cache

   If you still are not directed properly, flush your DNS
   http://www.whatsmydns.net/flush-dns.html

   Power down everything, modem and router, and restart.

   And lastly change your DNS server setting.
  https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using


I ended up having to change my DNS server settings to Google and am now able to access the forum just fine.

Just thought I would share.

Sounds like someone was telling you something.

No issues here, on my laptop or Android.

I've been unable also. Win7 with three different browsers. Linux on a different computer, win xp on a different computer. Reboot of modem/gateway. The only thing worked was using TOR! An anonymiser!! I'll change my dns server to google and back again to Open DNS to see if that works...not that I don't trust google....

Maybe you are IP banned.

Someone sent me a link to look at something on pipesmokersforum, and I get a hostgator error message. So I forget about it. Then I see this thread and change my OpenDNS servers to Google on the router, clear cache, try another browser, etc. I can open an initial link if I have done all that, but as soon as I click on something else, I get the error again. Something is not right...

yeah I got kicked off for selling pipes without paying the price for the special membership. Only, I never once sold a pipe, wasn't selling pipes, and was planning on buying a membership so that I could sell pipes. I tried through a number of different people to explain that I was just showing off the pipes I made, and was planning on buying a membership before I sold anything. No deal.

Not too happy about that

I know that pipesmokerunleashed has been offline for about a week, and has just come back on under a new name.

I was on there the other day and found for no reason my account was put back into moderation, I asked why my account was being moderated and now I can't even login, IP ban I guess, I'm not going to lose sleep over it, he doesn't want me there that's okay with me, more time for BoB is my thinking. cheers I love you sunny

What is the new name? It's been a very slow board but I like to keep track of what's going on. Shocked

He had to start from scratch again.  Not sure what happened.  I seem to be a member but I am in the process of resetting my password.

Yep, that did it. Had to reload my avatar also.
