    Hello Eurogamer

    i encountered weird bug.

    Usually i can post comment and access EG forum. But sometime, suddenly i wont be able to post comment or access EG forum.

    After i submit my comment, the comment loading will come and my comment will disappear into the abyss.

    If i go to EG forum, it will say that "you did not have access" or something like that.

    But sometime i will be able to post comment and access forum again, like today :)

    Looking at my Activity history, since 3 months ago i was unable to post comment or access the forum.

    Im hoping i will be able to access EG forum and post comment for the future too, not just today.

    Thanks

    Did your post have a link in it, and a question mark at the end of the post?

    You are tripping up on EGs slightly enthusiastic anti-malicious code measures.

    If you post a question, for example, put a full stop or something after the question mark.

    If you make the exact same post again but add a space at the end (so it ends in a space, not in a question mark) you'll be fine.

    The link+question mark thing doesn't seem to apply to posting main site comments, so that doesn't match the report in the OP.

    Can I clarify, in the OP you state you can't normally go to this forum. Do you mean you can't load http://www.eurogamer.net/forum or (as people here are assuming) than on trying to make a post to the forum you get a '403 forbidden' message?

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    I had this problem a couple of weeks back when posting a link.

    Tried several different links and images, no question marks. Still got the 403 page.

    Yeah, and he was describing the c.urled nature of said scati. Which as we know, the c word is banned here.

    Ah, okay. That's not the usual sort of server error I see. You're registered 4 years ago, so I'd have thought the new user restrictions shouldn't apply to you (and they shouldn't apply if you're only trying to look at the forum, either).

    hi tom, today its already working normal thats why i can make this post on the bug report forum :D

    last time i got the bug, i still can go to the inbox to see that i have mentions on comments. But i cant place a reply.

    if i place a reply, my reply looks submitted correctly (no error) but it just disappear into the void.

    is it okay if i tweet you the next time i got completely blocked again from EG?

    Although i'm hoping that the problem already, ultimately, cured :D


    EDIT:
    To be clear, the screenshot i posted above are a mock-up of the problem. I re-create it using my memory, including the yellow/orange error box. I just can't erase it from memory.

    Imagine, suddenly cant comment on EG for months :D
    oh the horror
