View Full Version : Access Denied To Certain Threads. Why?

Tuesday, January 18th, 2005, 06:13 PM
tried to respond to the thread about Northern Ireland and could Not.Why? I would like to to as this thread is not giving the Ulster protestants view at all and is promoting Shin fein propaganda. Most Ulsterman are of Germanic and Celtic descent, ULLAns(Ulster Lowland Scots) a recognised European minority lagnuage iis proto English Germanic tongue.
So a forum dedicated to Germanic peoples is in a way allowing non Germanic people to slander (IMHO) People of Germanic descent. Kind of ironic.;(

Because it was moved to the staff section. The content was kind of sensitive.

Here is what it said lei.talk:

Getting around IP bans
Use a proxy:


Proxy lists:


Short summary: proxies forward traffic on to you, so the IP that shows up at the site you're accessing is the IP of the proxy. Go to Tools -> Options -> General -> Connection Settings (Mozilla Firefox) and Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings (Internet Explorer) and put in one of the addresses you find on the sites above. If it doesn't work, try another. Best of luck.

I was wondering why I am not allowed access to certain threads that seem rather fundamental to this board overall. This (http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=5268) is a good example, although I seem to vaguely remember a few others. I assume it is something to do with post count, but, even so, I feel that areas with such an importance to the forum in general should be made available initially to save ignorance upon the board's views of such matters, especially when members apparently rather habitually post links to such areas as points of reference in lieu of explaining themselves. I do not condone their doing so, but it is a tad perplexing to be left out of the loop, even if I am still "on probation" in a manner of speaking...

Actually, the "pertinent thread" you linked to is inavailable for me as well. So it's not an usergroup issue - the thread does not actually exist. That can be because it may have been merged with another thread, was deleted altogether as a double or spam-thread, may have been in a section which no longer exists (for example, the former Realm Of The Senses) or may have gone off to Thiazi after the split between Thiazi and Skadi in early 2007 after almost three years of a unified board.

Some of these (and probably most of those where this problem will be encountered) may also be due to old link IDs - and may thus be inaccessible because they used the old numbering system of Blut und Boden, The Nordish Portal, or The Althing, whose databases were merged into the Althing, and all Links pertaining to these were changed into a Skadi link. So, if let's say Thread ID 666 linked to a thread about History on The Althing, it may well lead to a thread about Politics on Skadi. This as such is a technical issue due to the Database Merges and would be quite a pain to sort out for each and every link which existed throughout the years.

If you try to access a thread which is in a section which you cannot access, you will receive a message specifying

(Member name), you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:


There are currently only a few sections which are restricted from from view, for a variety of reasons:

- Personal Taxonomy: Is restricted to members who are no longer on a moderation, i.e. are not Junior Member, but Members, that is if they have 15 posts. THis is to protect the pictures of members and their friends from guest view, as the majority of forums are open to Guest view.

- There is a section restricted from access by all but Funding Members, for evident reasons. Usually, threads will not be moved into that section by Staff Action, so it should usually not pertain to you trying to access any threads that lay previously outside it.

- There is a section restricted to Skadi Regulars. To become a Regular, certain measures of post count, date since registration and reputation need to be achieved to become elegible for Regular status. Usually, people will be moved into these usergroups automatically when they attain such status.

- There is a section where Staff discuss matters, such as disciplinary procedures. They are evidently restricted from public view. Sometimes threads, or portions thereof might be moved into these areas, i.e. "moved from sight", if they serve no constructive purpose to the board but do not merit imminent deletion. This happens only in rare cases, but has been known to happen.

But the "Invalid Thread specified" screen will only come up when there is actually no such thread in the database archive any longer, for any of the reasons which I have stated.

If you're receiving the "access denied" message for the thread you quoted, then chances are that it was a thread previously in a section which you were not allowed to view before and subsequently became subject to deletion, merging or any other such measure, at some point.

I hope this was of help, feel free to ask any more questions or receive further explanation of any of that which I have said. :)

Yeah, I couldn't access it either......

And, what Sigurd said. ;)

Hmm, this thread doesn't exist for me either. Sigurd already explained the possibilities. The threads which are fundamental to the board are in the Rules and Announcement forums.
