I think that it is not VPN or IPs problem because I try to use "Allow access only for IPs" then add only one IP and this proplem continue to happen. My password is given by Filejoker in email, so it also not compromised password. I find out that when I try to down some specific files I will be suspended. When I download others file, everything is Ok. Try to download the "suspended file" again and then I am suspended again. There is something wrong in the files: https://filejoker.net/lvbjdk68gcb7
Maybe, this problem just happened to me!

I tend to use a VPN just for privacy sake, and was thinking of re-subscribing to FJ but last time I think I got temporarily suspended for using a VPN. I understand it's to prevent leeches. If I were to get the VIP membership is VPN usage allowed? Otherwise is there any elaboration on the "anonymous downloads", surely if I'm not on a VPN my ISP can see the pages I'm accessing and the data being transferred from there? Many thanks.

And one 1.2GB download took 7 hours to get to 4%.
Yet I can download a 72GB game in 5 mins from Steam, Uplay, Bethesda etc.
It’s very clear that this is only for paid membership only and thus something I’m not wasting time on any more.
You've been a member here since 2010 according to your profile, surely you know how this works. Yes, paid memberships gives you fast downloads. Paid memberships help support the board.

@Kosidius, yes, VPN is allowed for VIP premium accounts. By the way, using VPN can't be a reason of account suspending, as a rule there are a few factors in summary.

@jamonserrano, we have updated captcha, just choose similar shape and captcha will be solved easily.

@Mancinisos, that was fixed fast.

If that's the case, you really should change the caption above. If you tell me "Pick images or colors similar to the above", that's not what I'm understanding at all. The only valid one I can see would be 3rd from the 3rd row in the example above because the colors are the same. The triangle shape from the 1st row is different enough that I wouldn't think it would be right since it's a different rotation and size. And if we have to pick more than one in that example, then I would fail and get angry because of how unclear what we need to pick is. And if similar shape is all we need, then it's only the triangle that would be right and the colors in the caption is just misleading.

That's the worst captcha system I've ever seen, I hope FJ changed it back to some sensible ones asap.

@SamKook, we have made changes and now text is more clear: "Pick shapes similar to the above"

don't forget the trucks. i had a hard time with the pictures of the trucks. i didn't complain about it here because ... well, in my experience, complaints and complainers at akiba are not always welcomed. so instead, i made an oblique reference to the problem elsewhere with the following posts hoping that some other schmuck would take up the cause:

naturally, this flew under the feet of the better part of the community, and the few that got it had the good sense to ignore it and just rolled their eyes thinking "there's ol' barba, being oblique again". but as long as you are determined to make improvements, keep the trucks in mind.
