Today, twice i have kept getting some thing saying:
"You have been autoblocked by Nitty because your IP adress is the same as JackoiAXE's, who has been blocked for putting stupid stuff in articles"
I cannot edit for like 10 minutes every time i get this. I am not the only person to get this. Another user by the name of VonVince has got this, and i was wondering whether it is some glitch or something. Why do i keep getting this?that guy who likes to use the tesla cannon 16:32, May 11, 2010 (UTC)
It is strange because i got it at school today, and again today at home, so i cannot have the same IP as him.that guy who likes to use the tesla cannon 16:33, May 11, 2010 (UTC)
Mebbeh JackoiAXE wants revenge for being blocked and put a bot on The Vault that bans everyone.that guy who likes to use the tesla cannon 16:36, May 11, 2010 (UTC)
- Bots can only do the same things as normal users unless given admin privileges; they can't ban people. The reason you were experiencing this is (surprisingly) exactly what the message says: "You have been autoblocked because your IP address was recently used by JackoiAXE". Whenever an account is blocked, IP addresses used by this account are automatically blocked as well to prevent the user in question from simply logging out and continuing the behaviour that got him/her banned. In this case, two sets of IP addresses were auto-blocked. These blocks would have expired in about 5 hours anyway, but I've removed them now. -- Porter21 (talk) 17:01, May 11, 2010 (UTC)
