Forum issues?

Post by Original_Intent »

All morning I haven't been able to use the "Latest Posts" feature as it says the website is under a heavy traffic load.

I find this hard to believe as I have been up and on the forum since 4 a.m. Central time - do we really get that much traffic from overseas? Or is the forum having a bit of a glitch?

Same problem here. I also got logged out and had to log back in. And everything seems to be running slowly.

Occasionally I've noticed what seems to be a bot crawling the site at rates that require too much server bandwidth. It seems I was able to block the offender. It's common for search bots like Google to crawl a site, but most of them limit the speed at which they crawl a site.

I am looking into additional security measures to hopefully prevent that in the future.

Was it the infamous LDSHQ bot monitoring us??? 😉😁

I just got the same “we’re too busy right now, come back later,” message again.

I've been using the Latest Posts for over 30 minutes. Maybe you need to relocate closer to the server. :D :D :D

Perhaps honest and I are too fast for the board…
