Hello, Unfortunately I have nearly the same situation as descripted 4 months ago in my ticket number #5354

I wrote:

Hello, I'm using openstreetmap with the Firefox Browser Version 40.0.3. As of today the access to nominatim has blocked. I don't understand the reason, in have no info about an abnormal usage or other in the user policy desribed violations. My IP-Adress is

Would you like please to unblock my IP-Adress and to give me a information about the reason of the blocking?

Thank you very much.

Your reply was:

This was caused by some bad server configuration which has been fixed in the meantime.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Currently I'm using Firefox V44.0 ... I tried to search a Town via nomination e.g. Montevideo embedded in my browser window openstreetmap (URL an I got an error: "Error contacting 429" The different compared to to ticket #5354 is, a direct search in nomination was able and does work.

I would like to ask you again: Would you like please to unblock my IP-Adress again? What is the reason for the blocked IP? My IP-Adress is

Thank you.

Resolution: fixed

It wasn't your IP that got accidentally blocked but one of the OSM servers due to an IPv6 issue. Fixed now.

Thanks again for notifying us of the issue.
