Is Romania banned from accessing the website/forum?

Postby rodarkone » Sat May 19, 2018 5:53 pm

Hello all,

I was visiting home (Romania/ Bucharest) in April-May and noticed that I cannot access the forum from there.
Is there a ban in place for Romania ?

Now I am back in US and seems everything is working fine from here.

Thanks in advance,

There's no regional restrictions on the site from this end.

You've posted from 17 IPs in total, one of them could be associated with spam and could be on the ban list but it's too many for me to crosscheck tbh

Hmm .. of course I posted from multiple IP's

1. I am originally from Romania
2. I lived 2 and a half years in Czech Republic (Prague)
2. Lived 3 years in Poland (Krakow)
4. now I live in US :)

(also due to the nature of work we use VPN so some of the IP's can come from that bucket as I accessed the forum for sure from work)

So when I visited last month (in April / May) my parents home, I noticed I cannot connect, anyway thanks for the answer, is not impacting me per se - maybe is isolated only to my parents house in RO/Bucharest.

We do have some automated IP blocks in place for known problematic IP ranges, mostly in Eastern Europe and Asia, yes. That could explain it. Unfortunately, that's currently our best option to reign in certain abuse.
