SITE UPGRADE WARNING

Recommended Posts

Ok, yup, now it's annoying. Still blocked from my home IP, but can get in with WiFi disabled. Now that I've seen it a couple of times, I do think I've experienced it in the past, but wrote it off as a Tapatalk problem. This time (well, last night when I posted) I checked from my PC and got the blocked message in the browser.

You cannot get blocked via PC.  Only Tapatalk.  Once you get a block, it stays in effect for 48 hours for that IP address.  Access the site with that IP address in any software or device will result in barred entry.  Change to another IP address away from Tapatalk, and you should be good.  After 48 hours since the last blocking infraction, all should be right with the world.  And if you avoid Tapatalk, it won't happen again.

Tapatalk seems to have fixed the major error that was resulting in blocks. Now there are some minor coding errors that infrequently cause blocks. These are going to be much harder to shake out. What were you doing right before the block occurred?

Right, I was just confirming all traffic from my IP was blocked. I don't recall exactly what I was doing before it happened, just that I pulled up the site on Tapatalk and got the "Tapatalk sign-in service unavailable" (something like that) error, so I checked on my laptop and saw the "blocked" message. I had seen the sign-in message before, so I guess I have probably been blocked before without realizing it, but it had been a long time so I had forgotten about it. I am trying to remember what phone it was on.. I did swap back from the N5 to the KEYone yesterday, so probably different app version, and quite possibly several different IPs as I changed phones, and was on and off of WiFi, and I'm sure I got a new IP when I swapped phones. That's a lot of variables, so I doubt it helps narrow anything down.

Sounds like it most likely happened because your other device had an older version of Tapatalk installed that didn't have the fixes for this issue.. I'd update all your devices to the latest version and after 48 hours see how it goes.

Quite possibly. I just checked, and it's my KEYone that has the older version of Tapatalk Pro on it (I had been holding out, because I don't like what they did to the saved forum list.. Sigh, a regular occurrence with their updates..) I'm pretty sure the N5 had the latest version on it - unfortunately I just installed Ubuntu Touch on it so I can't confirm that.

Still occasionally getting blocked despite using latest Tapatalk.  Inconvenient, irritating, but able to work around.

Just got blocked for the first time. Using the most recent version of Tapatalk free (with VIP from the pay version).

My home IP has been blocked for about 32 hours now. I thought it expired after 24 hours?

Has anyone seen the block recently? If so, can you grab a screenshot or send me the error text. 

Thanks!

I got blocked again a few hours ago. After talking to other users, I'm apparently not alone, several of us suddenly got blocked this afternoon. It had been awhile since it happened to me.

I received a Tapatalk notification for a new post in a thread I subscribed to (http://s4gru.com/forums/topic/5806-lg-google-nexus-5-users-thread) so I clicked on it.. got the usual Cloudfront error. I switched off WiFi and tried using my Sprint connection, and was able to browse normally for about 60 seconds.. then I got a Tapatalk notification for a different subscribed thread, and that IP got blocked as well. I'm mobile now so I have a different IP.

I am on Tapatalk 7.2.2, last update was about a month ago.

He cannot send you a message at the moment Robert. Site won't let him.

I am now getting the blocked message too. Got it both on my office WiFi today and now at home. I'm unable to sign in on either my phone, laptop, or desktop at home now. I am able to get to the site on my phone on LTE to post this. Here is the error I am getting on my laptop.

I got blocked for the first time in a while over the weekend. So far I've only ever been blocked on wifi not on the Sprint network, so I've always had an out.

I've had nothing but blocks this past weekend. So frustrating as I would like to participate in threads, but can NOT get through. The Sprint network was also throwing me errors, which is the first time this has happened. 

I also want to report that I was trying to post on the Madison/Milwaukee Premier sheet thread (when it would load and not get Cloud Flare blocked), for which I have access, but it kept denying me. I'd type it all up, attach my photos, click send and it would give me the toast message that I am not allowed to post, "contact your admin if you continue to have issues".

Incredibly frustrating that I have to wait until I get to work to even post anything on this site. OR if I get lucky and get through at home, it'll still give me that message about failed posts. Because my home WiFi is burned too by the Cloud Flare. 

I know the issues lie outside our hands and we're all frustrated with it.

Interesting. I didn't know Microsoft made a Edge browser for Android. I will have to check it out.

Force close/stop Tapatalk and leave it closed. That should prevent a new IP from getting blocked.

It's a Tapatalk issue. If Tapatalk isn't running, you should not get blocked. Even if Tapatalk is running in the background, logged into this forum, it can still cause problems. I've stopped using it entirely for now until they fix whatever the problem is.

I have a new update cache of info to give Tapatalk about the blocks. Hopefully this info will help them find a solution. Stay tuned.

I have not been effected by this and I may be way out in left field but...why not just dump cloudflare completely, or is it built tightly into their hosted forum solutions for everybody with no option to do so?  I cant imagine we will see to much of a perf. hit, its mostly just text we are pushing around.

Cloudfront is part of the IP Board hosted solution. Cannot divorce from that.

    • As you guys are all excited to find a 10mhz carrier, I found a small cell popping up in the storage room at my office. They replaced the power panel the other day and brought in fiber. Today they are putting the hole in the roof (and patching the leak around the boiler.)

    • Yesterday evening I had a notification that I had an update to "Carrier Services" in the Google Play store.  Any idea what this might be for, given that Google doesnt exactly give great descriptions of these sort of things.  I figured it must be something vaguely Sprint related, but wanted to see if anyone here had any insights.   Thanks!
    • So, this thread isn't very active... How is the radio on this bad boy?  The 3 XL will be delivered on Wednesday, :D.  Wish it had VoLTE out of the box, here's to hoping it will at least get it 🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞.
    • Here's AT&T Band 5 in Prince William County:  https://imgur.com/a/A6x70Xe I tried locking to Band 5 in other places a few times along the way and did not see any additional Band 5.  This site also has Band 14, on top of the displayed 17/2/4/30.  I wonder if it has Band 66 as well.  (Didn't think to check.) Couldn't get a good look at the antenna as it was getting dark and it was cloudy and I was on I-66.  Sorry. - Trip
