So weirdly enough after posting I kept trying, and suddenly it worked. That said when trying to click on my thread to relay that information to mods I repeatedly 404 error paged and was unable to click the thread.
I just wanted to mention that that seemed to be working and that I'd reply if I had any further trouble but couldn't get in. Will replay to this too if it suddenly starts working.
Sorry about spacing this into 2 threads but literally can't open the other thread.
