    This is my first time posting here but um I can’t open this site called rainbow-reads (I can’t post links yet), does anyone know whats happening? Also the timing of this post and the other “Novel Site Problems” one is coincidental-

    Would you happen to be referring to the mega thread we made for people to ask if a site is down?

    Are you talking about https://rainbow-reads.com/ ?
    If that's the case it might be because you're from the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Malaysia or Thailand. The site is temporarily blocking readers from these regions because of bots, but you can use a VPN to bypass it.

    If you're referring to the first post on this thread that was made over 4 years ago. This is simply a mega thread for people wanting to know if a site is down or if it's just them

    Are cases like this usually resolved eventually or will the sites be blocked forever in these countries?

    I’m in the U.S. and haven’t been able to access the site over the past few days. Do you know if the U.S. is now included in the blocking?

    I'll just paste the announcement from rainbow-reads here

    "Update: After blocking most of the large bot countries, I’ve noticed one more country that is causing problems and that is Brazil. Unfortunately, I will have to add Brazil to the list of countries blocked. This will go into effect this time tomorrow on the 11th October. Sorry I can’t give more time but my schedule is becoming very busy from this week onwards. Once again, the list of free VPNs is down below.

    I’m currently having a lot of problems with bots. I’ve been doing a lot of behind the scenes stuff to prevent the site from going down or affecting my ad network relationship due to bad traffic/bots. However, I am currently too busy working at the hospital (damn covid) and for the next month or two, I won’t have as much time to be doing website maintenance.

    I don’t want the website to constantly be going down so I will be temporarily blocking traffic from the regions that most of the bad bots are coming from for a month or two, depending on when the hospital system where I live is less overloaded. This is mainly the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Malaysia and Thailand.

    I am extremely sorry for all readers from that these regions and it should hopefully be temporary. I also don’t have time to whitelist the IPs of everyone from those regions. If you want to access my site to read the chapters, you can try a VPN and connect to a US server. I have linked information on free VPNs below.


    The region blocking will take place on the 8th October so those affected have time to prepare for it."

    The US is not included so the problem might come from you and it seems like this blocking matter will still take a little while

    stealing the words of a resident snake: "it's an error common with madara theme...the theme is shit."
