It seems like my workplace has blocked 11w for some unknown reason. When I try to get to the site, I get a message that says "This request has been denied for security reasons. If you believe this was in error, please contact support." Not sure why they would block this site... They don't even have Facebook or Twitter blocked.

 

EDIT: I have found the *ichigan demon in the basement of our office and defeated him. I am back online.

That's odd and sorry to hear that. On the plus side, your work productivity is about to triple ; )

I guess that would be a good thing...

And I can still get the website on my phone.... It's just much harder to use and I will probably have a lot more spelling and grammar errors

How much time have you been spending on 11w? Caught a red flag in the IT department...

I emailed someone I know in tech support here in the office but I work for a large company so of it IS actually blocked, it's probably a corporate thing. The screen that comes up isn't the normal blocked website page though so I'm hoping it's just something weird.

Does that mean I would no longer have to clear the browser history, cookies and cashe after my 11W surfing?

CALPOPPY's picture

Hah! Yeah, watch that browsing history....

This is what I imagine in my head:

ohhh yeah, diagram that zone read. Yeah, spread it out, just like that. Run X through that big hole. 

But in reality, I'm all like:

I swear I never make the wrong read...this is the first time this has happened to me. My constraint plays usually go for longer than this.

I got the same type of message yesterday afternoon at work - but this morning 11W is working fine again.  I can't imagine having to do actual work before 9:30.

jeremytwoface's picture

Interesting.... Yeah mine was fine up until about 4pm yesterday so I was hoping it was just a glitch. But it looks like it's still like that this morning.

clogan1032's picture

Just find a proxy and circumvent the security and you'll be back to 11W in no time.

IH8UOFM's picture

My workplace tried this with my Daily Fantasy Sports sites. Little do they know, I can just put "HTTPS" in front of it and bypass their proxy. IT departments...when will they learn.

Jason Priestas's picture

This may be a corrupt session thing from our crash and it should work itself out shortly. If anyone else is having problems, please let me know.

jeremytwoface's picture

This is actually much more likely...

My friend just tried the website and it works fine for him so I doubt it's our servers here.

Thanks for the heads up Jason

Every so often my screen just turns white while on this site and I can not navigate my way through it..never happened before until recently..??

I get that when browsing on my phone on occasion, never on my home pc or tablet

mmounts's picture

Try this. Go to a URL address that isn't the homepage of 11W. Usually, large companies just block the initial homepage but you can back door your way in if you enter through a forum link and stay off the homepage (I have to do this for anything with the word Fantasy in it). I also work for a large corporation that has crazy firewalls (China loves us). 

jeremytwoface's picture

That doesn't work... Like Jason said above, I think it's a problem with their servers. My coworker can get on just fine

I hope my work does not suddenly ban this website... I would be terribly dissapointed

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Next time you re-negociate your contract, throw in a clause guaranteeing unlimited access to 11W !!!

I was going to ask if it might have been an issue with your browser and maybe try another one like chrome or IE just to see. I think Jason hit the nail on the head, the crash has given me some glitches.

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

jeremytwoface's picture

Yeah I've tried Chrome and IE with no luck.

Earle's picture

Unrelated to the crash (I think), my employer is now blocking embedded videos.  You-Tube has always been blocked, so I guess they finally figured out how to block the embeds. More of an annoyance than anything, but every time I open a page that has one, I have to look at the stupid message from IT instead.

Just say no to italics abuse.

Yeah I'm not sure that's the case here... YouTube isn't blocked for us and plus my friend who sits 2 cubicles behind me can get on the site.

And you haven't switched cubes yet?

Can you turn your phone into a hotspot and wifi your cpu to it and get on 11W?  I'm not blocked here at my office or I would try this.

Maybe someone on the staff or someone who's a lot smarter than me can answer This....

Why would my friends computer pull it up and not mine of we are on the same network? Is it something specific to my machine that is throwing it off?

Jason Priestas's picture

Do you know how to clear your cookies? That may fix it.

jeremytwoface's picture

Yep I already tried that.. I actually cleared my whole browser history. It is actually happening on both IE and Chrome... I typically use Chrome but I tried IE just to see.
