I tried accessing the website last night and again this morning and saw:
I'm in Canada, and pretty far from the US border.
'whois' on my IP address tells me:
NetRange: 184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11
This is a mistake which will be taken care of as soon as possible.
We have no plans to block Canadian IPs.
I'm still in the same IP block, still in Canada, and still blocked.
Any idea how long it will take to fix this?
From the SD developer...
"The web server has a GeoIP database, but this can certainly have inaccuracies. I have updated the GeoIP database to the latest available. Visiting via VPN from Canada, it appears to work for me.
However, it depends on his [dooglus] specific ISP and whether the GeoIP database has their IP range accurately associated with Canada in the GeoIP database.
If this doesn't solve it for him, we could consider adding some special case rules, such as specifically allowing his IP address (or a range of addresses) through the check.
(Technically, I can't update the GeoIP database file itself, but I could add special-case code to our Terms of Service check.)"
Dooglus - do you have any suggestions for this issue? Any other canadians (or other non-US players) getting blocked?
