Yesterday we had to restore some things

Postby TheSa|nt » Sun Dec 21, 2014 8:46 am

We had to go and restore some of the databases since we had yet another storm of spambots hit the forums. Sadly PHPbb sucks for that, but it's too much trouble to "convert" to another forum software. So for now we are stuck with fending off attacks all the time.

The last so many days worth of registrations have been removed from the forums, so if you were a legitimate user, we do apologize. You will have to re-register again.

In order to do so, please shoot me an email via the contact section of the main site, letting me know your are a human and what you nickname will be. This way, in case it happens again, we can keep your account from getting deleted if we are forced to do that again.

At the moment, registration is disabled until PHPbb fixes their shiznat. At the moment, there is apparently no way to stop these bots from registering and spamming without having to block all registrations. Kind of makes you just want to beg uncle sam to nuke all those a-holes at their doorsteps.

In this crazy process, we also lost all posts since Halloween or so, so...I give up. Try to offer something nice and all that everyone wants to do is destroy it. Fine...

Again, sorry for the inconvenience.
