I think we all are. Mary Anne is working on it, but it is a cumbersome endeavor.

OK...I have blocked 11 IP Addresses. (praying that I haven't blocked any of you.) We'll have to see if this does any good. These addresses all start with 47.254.___.

They are from all over the US, but stem from one ISP: Alibaba. They have been "living" on our forum, seeking ways to insert spam. Some have been reported to "attack" websites while others just want to inundate the victim with spam email. A few I couldn't find any concrete info.

Here's how to watch for them.

Scroll to bottom of main page and click on "Who is on Line"
A new page will open.
Click on "Display guests"
Under each "Guest", you will see an IP address.
If anybody sees an address starting with 47.254 OR 47.88, please let me know.

Now to figure out how to get rid of the semrushbot..who is apparently smarter than websites trying to get rid of them. I think they are harmless except that can use up resources.

Thanks!!

I've got the cPanel open and so far, it looks good...now to tackle Semrush...I am sure I will not get them all...and I feel sure 47.254____ will send more.. :1snowball: .that's why we'll need to watch for new ones.

Mods...Please be on alert. The "crawler" Semrush has returned.

I'll go and block the IP addresses later on this evening.

Thanks.

This is the 2nd day I have been unable to get to the live cams at Harrisburg. Once I select the "Watch Live" option, I get this:

Your connection is not private

NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID

Gosh SWINWK...not sure I can help you with that one as I haven't been able to get the cams all season.

Have you tried a different browser? Make sure your computer time and date are accurate. Sometimes if they are off, that can trigger that warning...

...or it could be something on their end?

I received the same message, but I do not follow Harrisburg. Wonder if Reenie knows anything.

:eggthumb: Thanks sky and gigi! Sky my date and time are correct, however I didn't get the chance to check another browser as I went back in just a few minutes ago and was able to get to the Harrisburg cams as usual. Gigi, I did just now post to the blog to see if anyone else had problems this weekend or if someone over there might have answers to this issue, but noticed there had been no mention of this problem previous. Will post to here if they have answer to this issue.

When I pull up the link to the SWFL eagle cam over the last couple of days, I get "It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching can help." and it shows "Page not found" on the tab. Anyone else getting this?

:loveheart: When I type in "Bird Cams Around the World" using Microsoft Edge, I only get these 2 options as opposed to simply getting the forum as I do using Chrome.

Bird Cams Around the World • Index page - Informer

Apr 15, 2022 · Mr. Bev here. Both Red and Yellow bedded down last night. Yellow just below the nest box. Red on the corner in front of the nest box. Still no sign of Mr. White. 7:20 AM Bev just …

I am leery of this "Informer" and of course not looking to go to the "Blog". I already know sky can not help and am getting a new laptop today with "Windows 11" and don't know if it will give me problems adding Chrome. Awhile back I only had the option of using "Edge" and was unable to get to this site. Does anyone else have this problem using "Edge" and/or knows how to simply get to this site if that becomes their only option?
