Forums Other Housekeeping RSS feeds no longer work

    Has there been a change in the RSS feeds configuration? Since a few days ago (the evening of the 14.), they no longer work for me. It seems that the DDOS protection (?) is intercepting the access to the feeds.

    No change at all – the daily emails run off the RSS feed so if it was down those would be failing.

    https://www.headforpoints.com/feed/ is fine as you can check.

    It seems to depend on which IP one comes from.

    For me, the feed is not working (I checked). There are feed validators that also show that it is not working, for example, https://www.rssboard.org/rss-validator/check.cgi?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.headforpoints.com%2Ffeed%2F
    Another examples is feedless.org

    However, the W3C validator seems to work.

    Something is off. Which DDOS service are you using?

    If you are using Cloudflare, have you set up rules to disable the captchas on the feeds?

    Recommendations

    This feed is valid, but interoperability with the widest range of feed readers could be improved by implementing the following recommendations.

    That’s not an option we have AFAIK but will dig.
