I've recognized that some users were taking advantage of our alternate domain to bypass work firewalls that have neogaf.com blocked, so I've reinstated neogaf.net for that purpose.

Use www.neogaf.net/forum (only if neogaf.com is blocked, of course) , as www.neogaf.net will still redirect to neogaf.com. Happy workplace sanity :D

is "customer service" hyperlinked to a scroll-over ad for anyone else? Is that Neogaf or some kind of adware I have on my pc?

Also, boo to any company that would block neogaf =( that's just mean.

I would never do any of that textlink ad crap. You have malware.

Awesome, but I feel it may be blocked too - I'll have to see tomorrow at work. Can you also register imtotallyworkinglikeasouthernslavebackintheday.com and link that to Neogaf.com too, just in case.

It's weird because it's only happening on this thread and nowhere else. I'll run a scan to make sure.

Nvm it's happening elsewhere. Weird =\

I browse NeoGaf all day at work and my co-workers often ask "What is that site you're always on?" because I'm always on it, and I'm always sharing weird/awesome/cool/news links from threads on Gaf around in emails.

The day it gets blocked will be a very sad day for me :(

With this and M.neoogaf, GAF will kill productivity and bring the world economy to ruin.

This will then lead to record levels of worldwide unemployment, thus creating a larger pool of potential gaffers.

Simply genius.

Thanks for this! Luckily the main site has yet to be blocked at my work (knock on wood), but it's good to know that I'll possibly have a fallback if that ever changes.

Just gaf, other forums work fine (westeros and Swedish for flashback.org). Pic sites, such as Flickr, instagram and other image hosting sites other than imgur are blocked and pics from those won't show up in threads.

It's so annoying when someone links to a thread though and you're not logged in because it's on .net

GAF is a game discussion website; gets lumped into the filters with IGN, GameSpot, etc


Edit: yup, neogaf.net is still blocked for me at work. Mobile gaf all day

Our Websense at work is so bizarre when it comes to blocking this site. Sometimes I can read a thread, but then if I click reply it blocks it for a filtered reason. Also I can sometimes read some pages of a thread but not others, it's so stupid.

I get that too.
