Wiki Errors

I’m getting a cryptic error “Forbidden. Dangerous network.” when posting to the wiki – just trying to add to the Apps list https://wiki.remotestorage.io/index.php?title=Apps&action=submit Anyone know how to get around this?

I would guess you’re either on a VPN or mobile network, and the anti-spam service doesn’t like it.

I tried finding the rejection in the logs, but wasn’t able to. Could you register an account on the wiki and try when you’re logged in? The registration may also fail if you’re on that same network, but that one is easy to whitelist.

Sorry about the hassle. We got a lot of spam before using the service, and it was too much work to manually deal with it. But services like that are also kind of sketchy and not exactly the ideal solution.

Hmm I’m wondering if it’s because I’m in Brazil at the moment? I went to a different part of the country today and it seems to have worked!

BTW I think there is still spam in the recent changes but it’s only on user pages https://wiki.remotestorage.io/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&days=30&from=

Glad it worked!

Thanks for the tip. I just deleted pretty much all user pages, as they were all spam.
