Hello,

I follow the CR twitter, and I've been facing this problem for a while now. Whenever I try to open a news link from twitter, I get the 404 error. Note, I am not talking about the Site News within the CR Forums. (Example: http://t.co/SAqUk3R9 the news about a new anime series for Hanasaku Iroha )

I tried searching for the news on Google, as well as on the CR search function, where I find the same CR article, click it, and get the same 404 error.

The only way I could view the page is through the google cache or the original view function on the google translator.

I realized recently, that on the google cache version of CR, there's a "News" link next to "Anime" "Drama" "Queue" etc., but there's never been a "News" link on the CR I view directly. There isn't one right now either. There's only "Anime" "Drama" "Queue" "Music" "Forum" and "Daily Deal". However, on the filters for the CR search function, there is a news filter, which results in pages in the news section. Of course, when I click those, I get 404 as stated above.


This happens on both firefox and internet explorer, so I don't think browsers are the issue here.

I am viewing CR from Japan, which may be the problem. Changing the default language does not solve the problem. However, being in Japan shouldn't restrict viewing the news should it?

Thank you in advance.

That's definitely the problem. Earlier today I accidentally visited this site while I was still using a JP proxy, and there was no news section.

As for why it's a problem, I have no idea.

Alright, so that's clarified, thanks.

Now, if someone could answer why there's an IP restriction on news...?

Short bump.

I apologize if I've missed something on the about or policy pages.

Reiteration: Why is there an IP restriction on news?

Unfortunately, the CR News feature has yet to be rolled out to Japan which is why you are currently unable to view the posts. If and when we are able to resolve the issue which prevents us from displaying our News feed in Japan, we will be sure to provide you with access to it. Thank you for your patience.

I understand this does not fully answer your question but I will not be able to take any follow up questions, sorry.
