The school finally blocked Omnimaga D:
Stupid xtech.boss.net :P

+1 For TOR. I've used tor before and I read somewhere that your signals are completely encrypted until they reach their target, which may even be a computer in Germany or somewhere! There it's decrypted and the response is encrypted and sent then decrypted by you.... blah....blah.....blah....and so on. You get the idea. Secure, Large, Discreet. Profit!

That sucks.

At my school it's weird, of course they block porn, but they don't even block 4chan and such.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

One idea would be to enable the word filter for guests and censor bad words and pron to some slightly similar but distinguishable alternatives and let the users, for the sake of free speech, disable the bad word filter if they wish via their profile settings. That could possibly prevent the site from being blocked at too many place.

I don't like Google Translate, though, because you can't login when using it.

Anyway I noticed the site gets blocked more and more anywhere, which kinda sucks (kinda like when we were on Invisionfree). Maybe that is why our activity dropped so much over the last year? (especially during daytime, where sometimes it's completely deserted)

I'm guessing it's inactive during the day because many of the people here are school-age, so they're in classes?
If it was more active before...idk 0.o  Maybe the people-in-school:people-out-of-school ratio is higher than it used to be.

Nah the last two years actually 60% of our activity was during school breaks and dinner time or morning. Remember how we had like 250 posts at 4 PM eastern time, then during evening sometimes we only got like 60-70 like now. Now at 4 PM sometimes there aren't even 50 posts...

One other thing though is that a lot of european members like Ephan went less active. Omni was probably not known as much and discovered much later by those who make school filters. Or it might be due to our lack of word filters, which causes us to be blocked, since Cemetech isn't blocked.

When I graduated from hi school in 2002-03, they blocked zip files. We could download exe files, though.
