Ping ban - Is this <meta> banned?

I use this tag :
<meta http-equiv = "refresh" content = "300; url =" />
it asks users to go to the URL after x seconds (here it’s 5 minutes), but it can be set to reload the same page like a ping service would.

  • But does it count as a ping if it reloads the same page every 5 minutes ?

  • Is it banned even if it’s used out of a “keep alive”/ping context ? I use it to send users out of the 404 page and back to the main page…

I don’t know. I think it’s fine because it’s a redirect.

I’m worried because it could make users be detected as a ping service

I think because it’s actually a client it should be OK. Better to check with support via, @glitch_support or creating a ticket via Happyfox :slight_smile:
