Captcha test following factbooks?

Postby Nihonato » Tue Apr 07, 2020 2:29 am

Alright, so I was trying to update one of my factbooks, but when I tried to publish it, I got this:

I did it, but when it went through, I got a request failed security check message. This was also on my main account.

Why is this here all of a sudden?

It's Cloudflare, it's a respectable company. I've never seen that before though and hCaptcha not at all, so maybe check it out a bit just to make sure.

No, it's legit - I think some changed settings on Cloudfare. Admin has been alerted, we're aware it's a nuisance. It might be a few hours before it's resolved.

Replying to AP and AAP:

No, what I meant was that it could be a preventative measure to stop scammer bots. But since that doesn't seem to be the case, I'm leaving this subject up to you guys.

The Cloudflare error says:

    "This website is using a security service to protect itself from online attacks. The action you just performed triggered the security solution. There are several actions that could trigger this block including submitting a certain word or phrase, a SQL command or malformed data."

Here's the dispatch: https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=1288107

I didn't add much in my - forbidden - edit: A few lines of normal code like "list", "italic", etc, and a few links to another dispatch I made. I tried editing the dispatch with some normal writing and it worked, but as soon as I pasted the original modification that I saved, I get that error. Do I need to send the Cloudflare Ray ID as well, or the dispatch as I intended to post it?

Still keeps happening to me when I try to edit factbooks. Unlike previously, the editing of signature or post drafts works. I can also edit factbooks on my other puppet. Might be the formatting, maybe?

Edit: Nvm, I had to simply take the captcha test

I have no idea why, but the problem disappeared seemingly overnight here. Without editing anything, I pasted the original edit I wanted to do and I didn't even have to fill a captcha, no error code, it was posted alright.

For me, I found this when editing an Dispatch (RTV Website V2 (Remastered)). Is NS Servers Virus-Free? Because I thought my email was pwned that causes this.....

Additional, I think reporting this to Cloudfare will work..

Cloudfare is not doing this. They host us, and they give the choice to set certain tools. We changed some settings and are still trying to tweak them so they're not quite as restrictive.

I will wait but you need to fix this and disable the Captcha System. I think you changed the settings but i think some of the staff misclicked to enable the Captcha System. Please Disable Captcha! I am not begging you....

As far as I've seen, if the factbook page you're editing is REALLY big (like my main IC factbook) then it will trigger the captcha prompt.
My main IC factbook
My solar system factbook
My 3 sapient races/species factbook
INFJ (maybe), american, libertarian socialist, worldbuilder, furry
I don't use NS stats.

Two Suggestions, Why not Putting ReCaptcha Pop-Up on Post Button in the New/or Edit Dispatch? It is Similar to some sites required an ReCaptcha Test before Posting.

Second, Should we have an E-Mail Verification System? Similar to Roblox, Users Required to Verify an Email before Creating an Dispatch or Posting at Forum even a Verified Account (Nation) has a Protection from Hackers.

EDIT: Added another one Suggestion
