Some folks from China cannot access my site
« on: May 02, 2013, 05:56:53 am »
Hi Createaforum. Would it be possible to make an exception for my site so it does not block any IP's from registering or browsing the forums I have created please ?

I can't work with the people I need to if they cannot access or register.

Thanks a lot guys

URL is http://www.flashlightemporium.tk

I just wanted to add that by opting out of the restricted IP blocking that I am fully aware of the potential spamming issues and I take full responsibility for keeping this under control.

I have several staff who will actively watch out for spamming along with myself.

I have registration restrictions in place with questions upon registration as well as the captcha system.

Should a problem become difficult to manage in the future, I will request to opt back in to the restricted IP blocking system. (if possible)

Quick update. The problem persists. The message is "Contact Support for help" is there some waiting time before they can access the site ?

Something is still blocking access. Here is a screen shot from the person trying to gain access. (This person is in China)

Still no go.

He's tried different PC's, different IP addresses and still the same message as in the screenshot above.

It looks like you have a geographical location ban in place

The test won't work since I don't kill off the connection just display a message.

Can't you just remove my site from all the bans because I have friends in Russia too who will likely want to join. We can manage fine without geo and IP bans in place.


I would appreciate it as most of my contacts and potential sponsors are in China .
