  1. Hi. You're probably more keenly aware of this than I, but these forums are getting spammed by a bunch of users (who have names like axdsrhss—they're usernames comprised of just random jumbles of letters)—specifically, the "General" thread. Seems like every couple minutes, there's a deluge of posts by a bunch of users who joined this Tuesday. Their posts are just a stream of Korean(?) text. Any idea what's going on? (EDIT: Apologies if making a status in your direct feed wasn't proper protocol—I just didn't see the PM button until I'd already posted this status)

     

    EDIT:

    At least 16 and 1/2 pages worth of topics in the general threads are now comprised of this deluge of posts from these users.

     

    EDIT #2:

    It's been 4 hours since I made this status—now there are 65 and 1/2 pages of these posts.

     

    EDIT #3:

    The issue appears to have been resolved. Again, apologies if making a status in your direct feed wasn't proper protocol.

  2. Broken Link

    Thanks for reporting. It's fixed.
  3. Site Won't Let My Friend Sign Up for an Account

    Hello, Did she get this message after filling out the registration form completely, then clicking on "I agree to the Terms of Use" and then on the "Create My Account" button at the bottom of the page? If not, was she even able to get to the registration form? Did she see the security check on the registration form? The new upgrade now takes into account blacklisted emails and/or IP addresses shared between different forum platforms to prevent known spammers to register. Maybe her email address was flagged? She could try to use a different one. It could also be her IP address. This can happen if she has a dynamic IP address and she got assigned an IP address that was used by a spammer that was flagged not so long ago. She could try to reboot her router to get a new IP address.
  4. Hey Chekhov. Let me know when you're back. Thanks. :)

  5. Updates and upgrades being performed

    The "logging out" part may be normal because I had to clear the cache a few times and restart many services. It should be more stable now. Note to everyone: We'll be performing the forum upgrade soon. The board might go into maintenance mode during the upgrade. Thank you for your patience!
  6. Hello everyone! You may have noticed that the site has been down for a few hours today. I've had to put the site into maintenance mode in a bit of a rush to initiate upgrades to several server services (following the recent changes I've had to undertake to counter the spam/hack issues). The operation seems to have worked out well. But if you find any issues on the forum or wiki, please let us know here. Thank you! I would also like to give you a heads up regarding a potential upgrade to our forum platform coming up very soon. Therefore, the board might be down for a little bit while we perform the upgrade in the coming days. Thank you for your patience!
  7. "Phishing" Security Report

    I've whitelisted the wiki since the wiki software would catch SQL injections anyway (it's true that /* */ could be used for SQL injections but if the software is well coded, it shouldn't cause issues anyway). Let me know if there are other issues with the wiki. Thanks for the report.
  8. "Phishing" Security Report

    Don't worry, I've been working on adding an extra layer of protection (firewall + more). What you see right now could be normal for the next few days. It will hopefully get solved soon!
  9. "Phishing" Security Report

    Don't worry, It's just that I haven't had a chance to look at my messages yet. I'll answer soon don't worry. I've been working on a few server-side issues/things related to the whole situation. Plus I work during the day, so I don't have much time in a full day but I'll get to it soon.
