New content distribution system
Posted 01 November 2010 - 10:36 PM
We are now using CloudFlare, which is a content distribution system. Cloudflare uses a malware IP address database and will warn users when they access Wetpixel from ip addresses that has been used to send spam (or has otherwise had compromised activity). Those of you who have ip addresses that have historically been used to spam or conduct otherwise nefarious business (which can happen if you are infected by malware) have to enter a Captcha and check a checkbox before they will be allowed access (it will use a cookie to mark the user so they don't have the popup again).
If you're seeing a warning page, you can go to Project Honey Pot to look up your ip address to see what sort of bad behavior has been originating from there:
Again, checking the checkbox and entering the captchas will put a cookie on your system that proves you are a human, and you can continue browsing Wetpixel without interruption.

The system doesn't seem to be working. I live in Indonesia, and every 24 hours I have to go through the whole 'prove I'm human' thing. The cookie that is meant to be created isn't working. I know other people here in Lembeh experiencing the same problem. We have slow internet and it's a pain to go through this. My ip address is listed as
and I use Firefox

I am also in Indonesia, use Safari and am suffering from the same problem ... it would be really great to be able to access WP in a normal way again.

Being a little jet lagged, I didn't bother trying to troubleshoot - just went to another site.

Sorry to hear you have had problems. The CloudFlare system has been disabled for about two weeks. Can you let me know exactly what happened so if there is a problem I can sort it out!

No matter what I did or typed I got the "Your a Spammer" message and could not get the authorisation to work.
Not sure what you can troubleshoot, it was 3 weeks ago (that's recent for me).
Same machine works just fine in Singapore and Thailand, it was a shock to see the message.
