503 Error — “Too many IP addresses accessing one secure area!”

E.g. I got a 503 error when I tried to log in – “503: Service Temporarily Unavailable. Too many IP addresses accessing one secure area!” That can be an “ip ban”. There’s a setting in place to keep your login from being shared with 6 buddies, etc. So the system looks at ip addresses to try to determine if there’s abuse. If it thinks there is, it implements a temporary ban – usually 30min. If you think you’ve gotten this msg in error, and you’re not sharing your account with other people, then please go to our support page and let us know, so we can check the ip logs. It’s not our intention to incorrectly serve this message to anyone; with an automated system, it can be mistaken.
