This started two weeks ago. I have no idea what is causing this. Once I click on the confirmation I can access the forum again but only for one day.

Help.

Take Care

Clear the cache of your web browser and restart your computer. It should go away.

Change your password, and what browser are you using?

Also sounds like your email may be compromised.

The admins here will never ask you to confirm your email with them.

It isn't the email but the IP address.
