Gallery Usage and getting Banned :)
« on: January 25, 2006, 05:41:22 PM »
Well there may be a little issue with highlighting photos in gallery and the site automatically banning your ass.

I am trying to research why it does this, but I am not going to disable the security system. I get an e-mail everytime an IP is blocked and if a username is associated with it I look to see what the block is for and then unblock as needed.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

well, that is an interesting feature.

Not sure what it means to highlight a photo.  But, as long as you reinstate us, no problem here for me.

Just curious, what happens if you as the site admin highlight a photo.  does the software auto-ban you too?  if so can you still reinstate yourself? hope so.

Ok, last time I am going to bump this.

DO NOT TRY TO HIGHLIGHT A PHOTO IN YOUR GALLERY OR YOU WILL GET BANNED BY THE SECURITY SOFTWARE.

I am hoping for a resolution to this problem soon, but in the mean time don't do it.

I'm still laughing at this.  Great bug!  I think the guy who wrote the security software might have been up a little too late with a few too many beers :beer: when he wrote that part. :beer:
:beer::beer::beer::beer:
and eventually::beer::beer::beer: (got an idea of a funny joke and wrote it into the software) :roflmao:

Well the gallery and the security software are independent of each other. The security software is doing what it should. It looks at what's being passed as a string and it falls into the filters for potentially bad strings and blocks first, ask questions later.

"Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over. "


I love how Hal uses the term "stress pill".  I have always been impressed with its usage since taking a chill pill, etc was a popular thing to say around the turn of the century

Ok, I am tired of unbanning ppl. :)

The old Gallery is officially closed for business. I will work on finishing the integration of the new and trying to ensure that any links to the old gallery redirect to the new.
