Why are Chinese IPs blocked?

You posted that message from a German IP address. Does the main powerampapp.com site work from your Chinese IP address?

main site works, but not the forum (which is also where to get APKs).

If I use a chinese IP, forum.powerampapp.com will always return an http 403 error.

So, I can only use a foreign VPN to access the forum (and to get the APKs)

It might be a block at Invision (the internet company that hosts these forums for us). They are US-based, so they might not be allowing Chinese access. I wasn't aware of such a block though, and they support Chinese language packs so it doesn't seem likely. [Edit: I've just checked and there are multiple users who have set their location as places in China, so presumably it's working for them]

Not sure why, but it might happen.
You better have a good home-based proxy server with some decent speed for such cases. They can be even better than VPNs because they work with no problem. Good old proxies are always coming to help you when everything else does not work.
The IP addresses stay static, and they are not blocked on 99% of the websites, which means that you will have access to all of them. The speed is also decent and sometimes better than some paid VPNs, and you can really rely on the server you’ve got.
So, you should consider installing a server like this for you. This is my advice.

Hmm, strange. Indeed so. I changed my address to Chinese and couldn't access the forum. It would be necessary to contact the technical support of this site. I believe that they will be able to give an adequate answer to this question. In any case, this should not be a big problem for you, because you can always us mobile proxies. This is a great solution for those who are faced with a similar problem. After all, it is with the help of it that you can solve it quickly enough. I hope my advice will help you.
