The portal is not in read only mode! Only the web interface is.

If you use a NNTP based newsreader application like Mozilla Thunderbird or Xananews you can still post!

Then, why do you allow this page -> (13-05-2019 10-01-20.jpg) to make believe to the user, he can post?

To fix this issue, you just need to get a v2 captcha from google, get 2 new keys (one public, one private), and upload some new javascript.

You also need to specify the hostname of the sites you will use it on.

Client side (html) config:

Server side config:

There is no cost to use it.

If you read the newsgroups lately they're setting up new servers and by this they hopefully fix these captcha issues. Just not sure how far they are with this.

Our infrastructure has been upgraded, which means the newsportal is back. It has some quirks, but it's working right now.
