    "Not a valid IP address pattern" has appeared every time for several months, whenever I suggest a site for submission.

    What does this mean, please?


    I have tried submitting from several different locations and get the same response, to what otherwise seems to be a compliant to to the rules submission. And the site I am trying to submit is a normal www . com address.


    I have tried the search function in this section for this, btw, but nothing came up.
    Thank you.

    I've just suggested it to Regional/Asia/Singapore/Business_and_Economy/Agriculture using the public interface without any problem (except for fighting the CAPTCHA of course :().

    Just to be clear, I haven't listed it; I merely did what you should have been able to do. Some other editor will evaluate it in due course :).

    @Author1ty and aldops:

    Your IP addresses don't match the address ranges that have a problem. What's more, by a truly amazing coincidence, you are both using the same one :lol: .
