Evening all,

Captcha was on to prevent DDoS attacks. They've subsided now so i've lowered the defences a touch, which may help Tapatalk etc.

 The daily slow patch is an offsite backup I run which I can and will make less disruptive asap.

 Should be normal now, @Rhys and @Mildred can call me also if there is anything weird going on.

Forum seems to be broken again. Activity / new posts doesn’t work (and many others).   tried multiple devices, on Tapatalk and web. Nada. Letting @Tait know,

Just for you seeing as you brought your own popcorn🤣

Come on, please do not put blame on our beloved mods who would not be (and should not be) capable of fixing such issues.

You say "The daily slow patch is an offsite backup I run which I can and will make less disruptive asap." It's not just slow... It's completely out, dead. We all get a 522 from the server as reported previously

Let's hope your changes improve things. 🤞

Just to be clear:

You decided to run a "Service Affecting" backup* right in the middle of the evening (when presumably quite a few users are online - ergo affected)?

Isn't "normal" practise to do such things during quiet times? (obviously I don't know your numbers but I'd wager that 9:30 in the evening isn't "dead time" on the forum).

* - Service affecting in the sense of preventing access and throwing error messages to users rather than a few nano-seconds delay in response. 

There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Manic Obsession"

Why is somebody DDoSing the forum?

Happens to any public facing install of a software like IPB, it's to be expected, especially one with quite a large footprint like this. Hastily (or badly) configured tools like Cloudflare are a blunt instrument, they work very well but will cause issues like those experienced ^.

Mhmm, changing the time would mitigate the impact forum users feel for sure, but if you're running operations that lock up or slow down the production environment at any time of day it's an infrastructure problem more than a timing one.

Not just you ... I'm experiencing this as well.

 

Interestingly, the "browse" button shows a number of recent posts. Dunno what's going on.

I often use the new posts function to browse new content and this is not working it seems. 

For the last few weeks whenever I click on a thread that I've previously viewed it still takes me back to the first post in the thread as opposed to where I left off. Anybody know how to sort this out?

I created (yet) another post about this - as it's affecting me as well.

Obviously I would have commented "here" or you would have commented "there" but neither of us would be aware of the others post.. because the Activity Stream is FUBAR.........

You'll probably never even get to read this...

Although I could @MediumRoastSteam you... so you'll get a notification.

Maybe that's the solution...
Abandon "Activity Stream" and just tag everyone!!!! :-)

Have the alternate skins stopped working for everyone else?

I use the brown (coffee sack?) skin. But a few days ago, everything changed to a harsh white and light grey colour scheme.

Unless I'm being blind, there doesn't seem to be an option to change skins anywhere now?

Thanks for that but.....

I was thinking the Hobbit Trilogy and the Lord of the Rings series...
Possibly all the Game of Thrones

(Maybe to be safe both of the above with the Marvel Universe offerings as back-up?)
