Outage on 2-7 resolved

Postby Jeff Fiske » Thu Feb 07, 2013 5:30 pm

Thanks for your patience this morning, if you were experiencing difficulties getting onto the servers.

It seems like an overaggressive spambot is to blame, essentially creating a Denial of Service Attack on the forums, which cascaded to other services.

Hope everything is smooth sailing on the nile for everyone....

Oh is that all it was. I was thinking it might have been a revamp of the forums and some major news. Here's to wishful thinking :)

I thought it was maintenance and went away quietly. ~_^
