Thanks for trying to help Way
- I just tried allowing cookies (both by allowing all, as well as explicitly allowing icefilms.info), but neither changed CloudFlare's recent behavior.
Note that I've been able to access icefilms using Tor for quite a long time. As far as I can remember, CloudFlare started presenting frequent challenges to me because of Tor in the fall of 2014, but these were able to be solved, and icefilms was then accessible. And while there have been times where CloudFlare has presented difficult challenges (and sometimes I failed to solve them, so another captcha was presented - I understand why that would happen), I've only encountered the specific problem I'm mentioning in this thread (easily solvable captchas not being recognized over and over again) once before: in January of this year (I posted about it here - viewtopic.php?p=253812#p253812
). This problem then disappeared (without my doing anything different), and didn't resurface until until last night. I have no idea if it got fixed because someone at icefilms corrected something, or they notified CloudFlare, or if CloudFlare was doing something wrong at their end, and they fixed it themselves (without icefilms ever contacting them).
Again, that's why I'm posting this - just in case someone who maintains the CloudFlare settings for icefilms changed something (or can check to see if anything's changed) and can hopefully change it back (or let me know that it won't be changed back). As it is now, the CloudFlare behavior makes no sense - it's presenting easy captchas, but it's not accepting the correct answers.
BTW, with this CloudFlare discussion continuing, I may have accidentally hijacked this thread, which may be totally unrelated to the OP's problem. If so, feel free to move my posts (and recent responses) over to the thread I referred to above.
