Musicbrainz blocking my VPN?

Just today I losţ access to https://musicbrainz.org . Checking about and it may be the case that MusicBrainz implements and IP block-list for bad actors (a good thing) but my VPN provider of choice may have ended up on that list.

Is there a way to get this resolved? Or is the block-list fairly hard and fast? I prefer to run with the VPN on 24/7 as I appreciate the encryption and additional security.

Send me your IP so I can check. We updated some blocklists yesterday, VPN’s IPs are very likely to be in, as they are very often used by bad actors.

According to whatismyip.com it currently shows as:

MY PUBLIC IPV4 IS: 192.30.89.75

MY PUBLIC IPV6 IS: 2606:9580:100:F:5792:2DEC:A4B6:2419

But it may change if I change amongst VPN servers. I’m using AirVPN, if that helps – if there is a “Musicbrainz approved” VPN service, let me know and perhaps I can switch to that.

As far as being a bad actor – you’d have to ask my high school drama teacher.

I unblocked your IP on our side.
You should now have access to our services.
