My own personal page is blocked

Postby dougj-p40 » Thu Aug 20, 2009 7:21 pm

I'm a new STS and while checking out the wireless connection at our stake house, I found that my own personal page was blocked. The orange blocked page stated that the site was unrated.

Are there any html metatags I can add to my webpage(s) to tell the Church's filter that my site is safe? If not, is there anything else on my side to get my page approved?

Is the Church's filter dynamic, in that it checks sites on the fly or does it compare to a known, static list of approved web sites? How does that list get updated?

A useful answer likely depends on what level of filtering is in use at the building in question.

HTML metatags won't make any difference. But you can see instructions for suggesting updates to the categorization at the wiki article Internet Connection Filtering.
