I use Edge and I haven't seen any problem (aside from the yt tag requiring Flash).

Edge doesn't even have Extension Support yet. What did you do?

Edit: For me, the icons all load only as those boxes with X marks in them, and the Animesuki Forums banner doesn't show up at all. If someone has any idea on how to fix this, let me know, please.

I run Windows 10 too and while I don't use Edge, I've just tested and it works just fine.

All static files such as the ones you mentioned (avatars, banners) are loaded through a CDN (Content Delivery Network) though.

And to make HTTP/2 possible all those files are loaded through HTTPS. Is HTTPS content blocked/filtered? If so, that is the cause of the problem.

Here is a direct link to one of the files to test with (my avatar):

HTTPS works fine for me on MS Edge. Is there any way to troubleshoot problems with CDN?

I couldn't get to that page with Edge at all. I tried troubleshooting the network connection, but I got an error message in it at the end saying, "one or more network protocols are missing on this computer". Apparently, it's a problem with a registry entry set to not allow all users permission. I thought I'd already fixed it, though, but it's still happening.

Edit: For some reason, the page is blocked in Saudi Arabia. This is really crazy.

Edit2: Yeah, this seems to be the problem. Disabling Browsec (one of Google Chrome's VPN Extensions) made the problem come up in it. CDN is blocked in Saudi Arabia.

I did a Google Search and I saw a site talking about several reasons why using CDN for a website is bad. I think you guys should go and take a look.

Just for reference, cdn-forums.animesuki.com is classified as "P2P/File sharing" by OpenDNS, which means that it is also blocked in institutions using OpenDNS for content filtering.

Oddly enough, forums.animesuki.com is okay, so the forum is at least functional except without images and javascript. It does make the new-style spoiler tags (including images, nsfw, tldr etc) a pain to open, because the only way to read their contents is by quoting the original post to get the code/text inside.

I kind of suspected that was the problem, though I am not sure why.

Another test: https://cdn-forums.emulator-zone.com.../avatar1_1.gif can you open/view this image?

It is hosted on the same CDN but the domain has different tags ("Games") on OpenDNS. If that also doesn't work I'll open a trouble ticket with the CDN provider.

There are way more reasons to use a CDN than not to. I don't have any statistics/metrics, but I suspect a good number of people will find the forums load slightly/significantly? faster for them.

That's a problem. From what I can tell it is caused by cdn-forums.animesuki.com not being "tagged" before, therefore inheriting the tags from the parent domain: animesuki.com ("Note: Because this domain is not approved in any categories, it inherits the tags of animesuki.com"). So that's why it is tagged "P2P/File sharing".

I've created an OpenDNS account and suggested tags for cdn-forums.animesuki.com which once approved/processed etc should solve this problem.

If you have OpenDNS as a resolver, you could use Google's 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 in the interim while GHDPro gets things sorted out with OpenDNS.

Google Public DNS works great, thanks!

Same here, though cdn-forums seems to work.

Unofficial statement: It's more a low threat technical issue that should be fixed, but isn't something to panic or really be overly concerned about, imo.

I can't skip the https warning in my chrome for android browser (it have no button that can allow skip the warning) and thus unable to access the forum via my phone in HTTPS. (The only solution provided by Chrome is to change my phone's time but that's not what i want to do)
