Apologies for the inconvenience lately surrounding the captcha and ratelimit issues we’ve been experiencing on our translation site (weblate.securedrop.org). I have to quick reboot the server now (Feb 26th 2019 10:52 PT) to implement a work-around. To clarify there are two issues biting users:
- Web application firewall rules which are incorrectly flagging certain behavior as suspicious and forcing users to complete captcha’s . This has been loosened for the time being until we figure out a better ruleset
- Ratelimiting on weblate has been blocking some users during translation phase when trying to quickly merge multiple translations in a short amount of time. These defaults are outlined here : https://docs.weblate.org/en/latest/admin/optionals.html#rate-limit
So TL;DR - Trying some fixes now. Please reply to this thread in the future if you continue to see issues with either behavior.
