Neogaf.net for bypassing work firewalls

sucks about the log in problem. i wonder whats different? i am still logged in from before the site upgrade, so im set for now. but before the upgrade i never had a problem logging in on .net.

whats different?

is www.neogaf.com actually banned from some workplaces or does it just not get through filters?
filtered for me. it comes up as 'Games' site blocked.
 
I did it for months. It's no different than people accessing facebook and netflix at work (which also aren't blocked), especially during a lunch break. Or sites that were blocked at one time as spam that aren't. or how our filter no longer categorizes xbox.com as games, but playstation and nintendo are. Oh and I'm part of I.T. anyway :)
 
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 :(
Can I have your job?
 
Oh shit this works!

Can you change the meta data so it doesn't contain the word games, I think that's how my work blocks stuff :p

But I will enjoy it while it lasts anyway

Edit: can't login though :(
 
I can view neogaf.net/forum from work, but when I sign in, it goes from the "Thank you for logging in" page to the forum, and then Imcan see at the upper right that I'm NOT logged in. I try to post and it asks for login info again. I log in again and the same thing happens.

Right now I'm posting from my iPad with LTE to get around that.

I know .net is not login. Is about cookies so i need to fix that.
 
My company is very strict with this website filters, they do not allow any kind of forum or social website, and they do not allow "entertainment", "videogames" and things like that. Now if a website is new, you can't access to it since it might have virus, it has to be checked first.

But I guess there is a blessed member of NeoGAF in the IT security department, because neogaf.com is whitelisted, and about half of the websites I try to enter to look for information about my work are filtered/not accessible.
 
My employer forbids the private use of the company's dedicated line. Well, so MobileGAF it is.

Is this only a German or European thing to prohibit the private use of the Internet?
 
yeah i have the same issue. No probs logging in at home when I can access neogaf.com. I get that "invalid redirect" when I try and lg into neogaf.net at work. Any ideas on what to do? Also cheers to Evil and Gromph for putting in so much time catering to all of our whining. We can't thank you enough.
