I know that GBAtemp has issues with spam and people trying to evade bans by using a VPN and/or a proxy to access this site, and that the firewall blocks most of those IP addresses. However, some people like me use either of these for security when browsing the internet. Here is my suggestion: Upon accessing GBAtemp.net by a proxy or VPN, give the user a popup message that they are using a blocked IP address, and can only browse the site in read only mode. I would find it useful to be able to browse the site in a read only mode and unable to make posts if one is using a proxy or VPN, instead of preventing them from viewing the site at all. Maybe upon a user logging in, if they have zero warn status, allow them to post, but revoke that if they end up breaking the rules. Also, on a side note, could someone please make GBAtemp support https? These are just some ideas that I came up with. Does anyone agree/disagree with them?
