PBEM down - fix eta?

Post by Edgewalker » Sun Nov 04, 2018 10:33 am

Guys, do we have any information when it will be fixed? I know that many Slitherine games are experiencing this issues, also forum is down/unresponsive/lagging badly like most of the time.

Try again this morning. The forums seem to be back to normal and one of the Slitherine folks linked forum and PBEM issues in a private message, indicating that the issues may have been related.

Oops. Spoke too soon. Hey Slitherine, how about a server upgrade? :-(

Yes, the forum is excruciatingly slow.

Thanks. Apparently my snide comment was not too far off base. Per Iain McNeil:
We seem to be under a sustained DOS attack. We've been trying to get the server upgraded to help but there is no quick fix and we're hoping it just ends soon...
People pull some stupid crap, don't they? You would think that folks talented enough to hack and attack could make money legitimately and be happy, but no.

Why would anyone attack the Slitherine forums ? I don't see what could be gained from this...

I was thinking the same thing, it's not like it's affecting prices of shares in stock exchange in singapore and somebody is making billions of dollars from it.

I bet it has to do with that rogue OOB modder guy that we are not allowed to name. He has taken shelter in a cave with internet and has made it his life goal to sabotage Slitherine.

Don't count your chickens, as they say. Part of this garbage is the psychological effect that the messterminds behind this type of thing enjoy. What better effect than to allow people to relax and say "Phew" and then start up the attack again?

One of the worst things about the internet is the ability of people to crawl out from under the rocks where they normally hide, empowered now by the ability to get into people's faces with their various nonsense and thereby make themselves feel significant.

No need for insults. If you wanted me gone, you could've just said so... :P
