Calling some of our Russian users
Last year the Russian government blocked many websites, including ours. This means many Russian users can no longer access BankrollMob, except if they use a VPN or Proxy service. Obviously this is not ideal.
So we created www.bankrollmob-ru.com as an alternative, which we believe will work in Russia.
Therefor, Russian users, please try to visit www.bankrollmob-ru.com WITHOUT the use of VPN/Proxy and see if the site works from you, if you can post in the forum and log in to Mob account. If there are something broken (or missing images), please let us know.
Posted by Nickname24: Everything works well except log in, when i put my login and password and press login button it redirects me to bankrollmob.com
................... I will continue and if the browser is not enabled VPN then the page is locked ....... so your version of the site for the Russian does not work ... ......... I think those who are in need of this site is the ability to bypass a blocked

didnt know that people in russian cant access normally on this kind of sites!its strange to see what governments block to us and what they want to change in life!but its nice to see that you have to come and still write on every forum that you want!
Posted by Nickname24: Yep, thanks But unfortunately Mob Calendar is still "broken" due to ISP blocking
when you try to open a calendar day it happens to the primary version of the site and blocked ........ probably the site can be used but only if you do not enjoy games .... but it certainly is bad ... so I'm going to use the basic version of the site using zenmate addition to goole chrome
@Admin, I can recommend using a VPN service yourself for this type of development. I use vpn.ac, and can connect as if I were in St. Petersburg, as well as a whole range of servers in other countries.
FYI. All seemed to be working, including calendar (I did not open a door though).
B.t.w. note that the calendar itself requires a plugin to run, maybe some users think this is Russia specific, but I get this from the Netherlands as well in Firefox. See screenshot; especially with the "block..." suggestion by AdBlocker in the top right corner, this could be confusing...

Isn't it amazing how you get so used to stuff that you take it for granted, and it's only when someone else can't get it that you realise just how lucky you are and how unfortunate some other people are. Well done to the guys and gals at BRM for identifying this and finding a way around it. Good luck to our Russian friends.
Hi all! I had to use an Opera Turbo service on PC to avoid blocking, but now everything works fine on www.bankrollmob-ru.com Great, because it will be possible to open doors or chat through mobile phone there i couldn't get the Opera Turbo mode. The bad thing i guess is that the government may add the alternative website to the blocked one too. All the best from snowy Russia.
