Dear Orbinauts,

Don't panic if you were just asked to accept the forum rules again. As part of an update to our forum software, all members acceptance of the forum rules had to be reset. This means you will be redirected to the rules page the first time you attempt to view a thread on the forum so that you can physically check the "I agree" box.

The actual rules have not changed, so there is nothing new you need to worry about reading. Unfortunately, the updated software required us to reset the acceptance for all users.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for being a part of the community!

It shouldn't have... more info please. Browser? What were you doing when it happened? What pages did you visit etc? We haven't gotten any reports of it asking others 3 times. :shrug:

It asked me about 15 times, but that was because I'd opened 15 tabs with different threads in it before realising there were new rules to be accepted...

Thanks for the info. Indeed that would happen if you have the tabs all opened at the time the acceptance was reset.


EDIT - And to clarify, there are no new rules, it was a software update which unfortunately required us to reset the acceptance for all users.

I was having issues with my work pc anyway today - it kept refusing passwords and many other annoying little things.
