DOWNTIME ISSUES

Post by admin » Tue Aug 06, 2019 2:00 pm

As you might have noticed we had a suspension and some other downtime recently.

The supsension this time was because of the fucking spammer bots that auto register accounts and this caused the host to flag for email spam, since we used email verify to activate your account. So thanks a lot spammers.

And of course you, the users won't notice much of spammers, but i have to ban and delete spam posts every day from 20 different users or more. So its pretty severe.

We will now be using more spam prevention like Recaptcha to prevent these bots from registering. And we disabled email verify for new users (for now). Just so we dont get suspended again.

Our server itself had some problems when we were upgrading the forum and adding new features. So it is possible that a few minutes of downtime happens again while we integrate these new forum features. But trust me, it is worth it !

I also like to thank our remaining posters for following the rules and creating good content.
