Official Tor Hidden Service for the Kiwi Farms

  • ATTN NEW USERS: I strongly suggest using a real, alter-ego email address from a reputable provider and using a Password Manager to securely keep tack of it. If you forget your email and password I cannot restore your account. These are good practices in general so stop being lazy.

The server seems to be occasionally redirecting http Tor connections to https which breaks the connection and makes the site inaccessable for a while.

Was happening for most of last week.

This Path.net debacle once more demonstrates why everyone who posts anything they wouldn't want their name & address attached to need to use Tor.

Occasionlly? The only nodes I get in the random shuffle that don't upgrade to https are usually located in Austria, everything else does and causes

I've disabled https everywhere and it doesn't help. Many of the nodes I am offered force the upgrade from https://kiwifarms to https://onion and http://onion to https://onion and the browser just goes along with it and that just leads to the site not working.

I know the nodes are involved, because if I do "new circuit for this site" about 30-60 times I get Austrian node and so far they haven't changed the http part and everything works fine.

I don't know if it is the tor server operators who hate kiwifarms, the browser, or if it is just kiwifarms itself misconfigured, but that is what is happening at least to me. Maybe add something so https://onion works as I'm guessing these "forced helpful protocol upgrades" will probably be in more and more nodes sooner or later.

Only KiwiFarms does this.

But in recent days, it seems to be working much better, and I've got in with no problems over the past 3 days.

i'm having both .net and .is redirect to tor randomly, is that some kind of unmasking attack?

edit: i'm retarded with wording. it was redirecting consistently to tor just 20 minutes ago, now it's back to normal on the clearnet

ok, managed to replicate it:

i'm using a vpn, Mullvad, and the system that detects if you're in the tornet must be misfiring on vpn endpoints.
so far i've found this config to be at fault:

No, for some reason it's just an automatic redirection on the forum side. Anything it recognizes as coming from an exit node gets sent to the onion service. This is also my guess as to why it randomly sends you to the HTTPS onion link (which doesn't work) whenever the onion itself is dead or it shits the bed in some other way. The unmasking attack happens naturally as you cycle 20 identities to find a route that will not get picked up. Want to know who uses KF over Tor? Just look for constant identity changes over a small period of time.

I really hope this is being done to counter some kind of DDoS of the normal clearnet portal through Tor, otherwise it's the most annoying and useless fucking shit I've seen a website do. Read the thread back previously myself, only thing I could find was that Tor users are apparently niggers. Not wrong, but doesn't explain it either.

ETA: Perhaps that Mullvad server also runs an exit node?

if you're having trouble accessing the TOR site try setting your useragent to default browser or firefox compat mode in about:config. As far as I can tell the TOR mirror is never down.

Haven't experienced redirection fuck-ups for days now, onion always works. Could've been the router change (and maybe some configs as part of it), could've been something else, I'm just happy that it works.

Seconding Frail Snail's post, things have improved greatly in the past few weeks. I used to have to refresh my circuit and log back in randomly as the onion site would just stop working but ever since the new router it seems to be solid.

TOR is working rather poorly since yesterday, on both Brave and TOR Browser - someone's not happy about foreign deaths report, I assume?

"working poorly" is vague. Is it slow? Does it occasionally fail to load?

What I'm noticing on my end is slow loading speeds.
