there is a country wide ET site ban in India (including mirrors)
please switch to HTTP Secure or HTTPS
so we can all browse without the need of VPNs
Stop banning every proxy/VPN IP Address I try to visit
I cleared cookies
still I cannot access chat page
, it redirects me to my account page..strange
I can upload though
We do have https.. Just add https in front of your URL and voila...
https does not circumvent a block btw.. it sometimes works if your ISP only blocked traffic to the http port, but if they completely blocked a certain domain/ip then you will still need to use one of our mirror sites or a VPN to bypass the block.
Proxy/VPN IP's which are overly used do get (auto)banned sometimes (not really sure what the exact ban conditions are, someone else has to fill in on that, but they are there for protective reasons). However known IPs from proper Proxies/VPN provider also do get unbanned, in my experience that sometimes even happens in a matter of minutes.
Regarding the chat.. It's somewhat broken at the moment.. It's hard to get in and it does throw you back to your profile page frequently when you do get in.. so that's not because of VPNs/proxies or https.. Thats just the chat that thinks it's a rodeo.
