Cannot load vwclub webpage blocked ip

Post by Ashveer03 »

Hey guys

Been having a problem from a long time not being able to load the club webpage, doesn't work on Tapatalk either.

What's going on with the whole blocked ip issue? Turns out it randomly works on WiFi and sometimes on mobile network. Kinda makes one lose hope in the forum.

Are there any known fixes?
When a car tailgates me, i slow down - then floor it and give them a cloud of diesel smoke to choke on :driving:

And here's another one, smelling like AI.
Resurrects an old thread, picks some content and re-phrases it as an intelligent-sounding question.
And still drives a BMW model BMW, with the same smiley in the signature.

Thanks, Nic, I was about to hard-report them yesterday, but then I saw one has to select a reason for reporting, from a drop-down list. None of those reasons was really applicable, so I abandoned that mission.
But if I see any more AI bots, I'll report them in future.

"Artificial Intelligence is no match for Natural Stupidity."

Edit: I see now that the reporting page has an extra category for "other, please provide details". Missed that yesterday.
