[NOT A BUG] Can't see images unless using a VPN

I found the photo can’t be loaded recently when I visited the forum but it works after I change my IP(using VPN). I don’t know if is there anyone who lives in mainland China who faces the same problem- it has lasted one week for me(maybe longer?)

Sometimes China’s Great Firewall blocks (accidentally or not) Amazon S3 where Postcrossing stores images. This issue doesn’t affect just Postcrossing but any other website that uses Amazon S3 of which there are many.

Not much we can do here to help I’m afraid. The good news is that usually it just quickly gets working again by itself. I don’t know if it helps to complaint to your internet provider.
