I know you guys thought that Indos are banned on this site, and I'm more surprised than you guys that we all can access and log in on this site. There's no such thing as cheating with the proxy or anything similar. We all thought that Dobi had a change of heart and lifted the ban. And when I read a comment of Dobi on a tee, now I'm confused.

Just to make things clear, we all have agreed to not do anything bad even if we're banned. We already accepted the decision.
We're really psyched when we noticed that we can access this site.

I've asked Dobi many times regarding this, and cause he's not answering anything, so I guess everything's just fine. But now I'm confused.

We really regret what happened on emptees and will do anything to make things work this time.

Cheers all

PS: Dobi, if you think this is not appropriate, you can just close it, and please message me if you have the time. Thanks

    This is how I understand it. There are a few talented ones that have made a name for themselves, such as yourself that will be allowed to come here and the rest of them wont.

    Man Markus I feel bad that you have to carry around the burden of all the bad designers and people who steal artwork from your country.
  • markusmanson

    I feel no burden at all, me and my fellow designers (the real one) are in this together.
    We really try our best to make a better impression from before.
    I really hope you guys don't think negatively with our existence here, so I explain everything here.

    PS: YES! now there's a modify comment button! Dobi & Friends RULES!

    When we figure out how we want to configure our site security, we'll be implementing something that lets us whitelist specific IPs if there are individuals who shouldn't be blocked by location, but are.

    hope this matter get clearly soon Markus, feel sorry that you have been burden by us all.

    You spoke will ALL the Indonesians? Man, where do you guys get together?

    In all seriousness, keep up the good work Markus. Yours is a face I would like to see around here.

    Not much to say, sounds like jared and Dobi are putting a good plan in place as usual
  • Sam Montana

    Markus, no one thinks negatively of you or any good designer from Indonesia. We only 'hate' the ones who trash the site with horrible 'art' and engrish.

    Haha, exactly what I thought.
  • RustyEight

    Actually kind of stoked that Markus is here.

    like i said previously, i have no ill will towards the indonesian people, whatever security measures we put in place are for the better of the community / the sanity of myself.
  • Balefire

    So is the Indonesian IP ban in effect? Or it will be in effect in the future? Still kind of confused.

    And hell yes!! Some of my favorites from Emptees were from Indonesia.

    is it in effect? yes and no. i believe there is some lying going on.
  • markusmanson

    Thanks for the kind words, guys. Means more than a lot to me.
    @ Dobi & Jared : hmm.. okay.. so I guess we're not all safe like we thought before then. Well, I'll still support 100% what you'll come up with, cause I know it'd be the best for all.

    Wait...so Indonesia isn't banned? Or are they using a proxy? Or what?
  • Chreck

    i'm sure a proxy is going on that hasn't been cleared up yet, but the whitelist idea sounds nice (theoretically), because it'd be great if markus, & (legitimate) co. can stay here
