Exclamation Intermittent Service

As you may have noticed service to this forum may have been intermittent today. We are currently having an issue with our network being hit with a DDOS that is affecting many of our forums network wide. We’re currently working with our service providers to get the forum back online.

Common Questions:

Are we being hacked?
No. The server our communities run on was being hit with a mass of information, and was timing out. Same as if you open to many browsers on your browser, the page slows or “not responding” is the message it sends.

How large was the attach?
The attach was 135 gig per second. ( for the more technical of you )

Will this affect my saved information or personal information?
No. We have all user information saved on a backup server and keep all personal information secure.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please post them here.

If you have any other questions Please PM the administrator directly.
