New content distribution system

Recommended Posts

Hello, all -

 

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:

 

http://www.projecthoneypot.org/search_ip.php

 

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.

Hi Eric,

 

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

 

222.124.221.178

 

and I use Firefox

 

Thanks,

 

Kaj

Hi Kaj,

 

Eric is away at the moment-I'll get this looked into for you.

 

I'm sure we'll sort it!

Thanks Kaj :)

 

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.

I just passed through Dubai, and had the same problem in my hotel.

 

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

Hi Jeff,

 

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!

It was Oct 31st, was trying to view the site from the Holiday Inn Express at the airport on a short transit.

 

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.
