For those into downloading facepacks, logos, kits from those wonderful creators found in Sortitoutsi.net, FMGLive forums, etc, most of their downloads were uploaded onto Filefront which was a super-fast and convenient place for most of us to get them. They were so much more reliable and you hardly have to wait unlike Rapidshare, Megaupload or what have you.
This happened about a week ago. Suddenly it became impossible for you to get absolutely anything from Filefront. You would always be faced with this now familiar yet frustrating error:
There was an error processing your request; it appears to be invalid or there was an error with your conection. Please wait while your request is retried…
If you need further help with a download, please contact FileFront support.
I thought Filefront was doing maintenence work so I let it pass and waited for a few days. But it doesn’t seem like now. Most likely, Filefront has decided to go the way of Megaupload and limit users or maybe even block them off.
I have seen threads pop up in Filefront Support forums and the staff have brushed it off and just said, “Connection is limited, try again later.” Apparently, most European nations doesn’t have this problem at all, it’s mostly targeted at Asia, Middle East and South American users from what I have gathered.
Let me tell you how to bypass this silly restriction. Visit Freeproxy.ca or any other similar free proxy website and then access Filefront downloads using that. No more waits or restriction, just instant fast download like the past!
So until further notice, this is the best solution thus far for users that are blocked by Filefront. Whether they will change it is another matter altogether.
