Quote from: Goujer on November 18, 2023, 05:05:08 PMWe use https://ipregistry.co/ with the gallery to verify all signups IP addresses, if it detects that the IP could be a VPN or has other issues your account, will be restricted until email verification has been completed.But I have been struggling to setup email communications on the gallery so signups are effectively useless right now, work-arounds and exceptions will not be done.Bad apples spoil the whole bunch unfortunately and because of recent actions, security and verification are STRICTLY REQUIRED.You can try accessing your account from a different IP address or wait until email functionality is implemented and verify your email then.If you private message me your Gallery name I will watch for your IP connections to see if a "safe" IP connection has been made.
Quote from: Oteras on November 20, 2023, 06:59:17 AMI appreciate the explanation regarding the IP verification process, but if the site is falsely marking my IP as a VPN, it raises concerns about the accuracy. It seems unfair that legitimate users might face restrictions due to false positives.I'm reconsidering my interest in participating here. I have heard there's a better place where such issues are handled more effectively, I might explore that option.
Quote from: Goujer on November 20, 2023, 07:59:40 AMI have extreme faith in our IP detection system as it is used by millions of sites and we encourage your to retry accessing your account from a network that you know is unaffected by any proxies.If you feel that another website would be more worth your efforts you are free to explore and use those sites.
