Higher forum security

Unread post by Zanniej » Thu Mar 26, 2020 12:38 pm

Unfortunately, I've been forced to set up higher security for our forums. The upside is that performance should probably improve. The downside is that you might get a "challenge" every now and then.

The reason for this, is that our forum has been under attack for the past couple of days. Some of you might have noticed this, as this has caused timeouts and other errors.

I hope the issues have been resolved for now, and the forum will start acting normally again.

Should you experience any hinder, then please let me know, and I'll look into it.
If you have any questions or remarks, then feel free to let me know, or respond to this topic!

Now you see me ... now you don't

I'm just living my life trying to cause as much chaos in as short a time as possible.

You can't have it all ;-)
I hope I'm not a bot, otherwise I'd be blocked too! :-P

To each their hobby, I guess. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Still getting occasional issues, but they feel less than before, and shorter.
