    Shout out from Bulgaria - for the last few days I get "Error 403 Forbidden" trying to open the forums, only US proxy does the job....what gives? Anyone else EU located having the same issue?

    Same situation from Germany, haven’t been able to access ridemonkey for a week. Tried several service providers and mobile networks to no avail. I am a complete amateur at this internet stuff, is there anything we can do on our end other than going through a proxy?

    Well, no actually, but that's not an issue in its essence - there's a myriad of proxy/VPN browser extensions, it worked with the first one I tried (Stealthy for Chrome). The interesting part is that this looks like an explicit restriction on the web hosting side for non-US providers, or as is the case - EU ones. I'd understand such geographical block for corporate or government reasons, but this is Ridemonkey...probably because lizards?!

    I suspect this is a mistake. I have sent the appropriate inquiries. Sorry for the trouble, guys.

    Hey guys, and @Udi, as it turns out there was some issue of GDPR compliance so the corporate overlords just turned off EU access while they figured it out. Nobody told me.

    Their plan is a few weeks out, so I'm going to try to implement an interim solution. We'll see what happens. I'll keep this thread updated.

    @binary visions totally forgot about the GDPR, it's been a while since it was the "so hot right now" topic around here, makes sense now. Thanks for the heads-up!

    Me and @Loki87 still having this problem

    Firefox and FireX proxy extension set to USA got me in, the chrome proxy extensions didn't but maybe they just suck. I made a thread on vital asking about the issue so it might clear the issue up for some people. maybe put a message on the error 403 page saying us europoors are blocked if that's doable.

    Ive escaped the opressive clutches of the EUrocrats into glorious free ukraine and I no longer need a proxy, but this shits getting more common with american sites so im gonna try the more legit paid vpns like nord

    uVPN also worked for me, if you wanna go for a paid option.
    I´ll stick to hola for now and hope they figure this stuff out sooner than later.
