Server News 15/12/17 - 22:41

Post#1 » Fri Dec 15, 2017 5:42 pm

The forum was down earlier, the server had been switched off by the datacenter because of an over dose of bots which damaged the sessions part of the database. This is now repaired and the site is back up, it will be monitored for further activity.

Kind Regards

What's a bot, and why is it a problem?

Two particular bots were hitting the website a lot harder than they should have been so I have written a complaint to the companies that created them, I have also blocked both.
