Unable to edit or reply with update

04 May 2019, 09:41

Hello,
A while back I posted an interruption tracker script I use heavily at work.
https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=63906&p=273960#p273960

One of the fields is for tracking WHO is interrupting you.
To keep data consistent between myeself and other team mates, I added a SQL function to help with an AD Lookup. Now everyone on the team contributing to the interruptions would be inputting the same user names as to avoid inputting nicknames, half-names etc. creating inconsistent user entries.

I wanted to update my original script as i've since changed it up a bit as to be more dynamic to update interruption types, but I am getting a warning which appears to be related to the SQL function in the script.
Why have I been blocked?

what can I do, if anything?

Thank you for posting this. Quite unintentional to prevent such a thing. could you respond to the forum notification with the update so i can track down the specific rule interfering with the post and correct it?

The actual update wasn't the SQL function, that already existed in the original script which is currently a part of the original post.
Even without making an actual edit, I will get the error simply previewing the existing post from the edit window.

As an admin, I believe you should be able to reproduce the issue by
- going to the original post I linked
- click Edit
- click Preview

This should give you the CloudFlare warning/RayID (unless as an admin you are automatically bypassing these rules).
could you respond to the forum notification with the update
Do you mean reply in this thread with the update I made, or to my original post, or another location? (I'm not sure what is the Forum Notificaion you are referencing, i just need clarificaiton).

The update itself was removing radio buttons and replacing with a dropdown, using INI for storing settings such as time increments and categories, and a couple of minor fixes like making sure GUI exits on close with X button etc.
Here's the newer version if this helps: https://p.ahkscript.org/?p=79363c0d

I was not aware the warning came in the form of an email.
For me, whether replying to my original post, or editing, or previewing the original post with no edits, the page refreshes to the CloudFlare warning page
Sorry, you have been blocked
You are unable to access autohotkey.com
Plus the message about SQL I had quoted earlier.

I normally use a VPN, but after seeing the message i disabled it in case that might have had any contribution. I can obviously post and reply in this thread. I can try posting my update in code tags here just to see if lets me, to see if i'm only having the issue on my original thread.

[EDIT]
Removed Code block.
It appears I can post it just fine here, and also preview. I apologize for wasting your time. it appears the issue is only happening on the original post I made. Would it be OK to start a new post or ... ?

Oh, sure, I am willing to continue.
What would you like me to try next? I can also jump in Discord if that would be easier to communicate back & forth.

No the forum is meant to be easy to use. we underwent some attacks lately and there are places i tightened the belt a little too much. THIS is specifically my job to do in this community s keep it safe and functioning
