FORUM SLOWNESS!

Post by jwonder »

To all our members,

If you experience any forum slowness I apologize. We are getting KILLED with BOT SPAM from Bytespider which is Bytedance/TikTok right now. They are hitting every page multiple times and I am fighting to try to stop them. I wil keep working to fight them off but please know that the site might be slow.

Thank you for understanding!!!

Well, I think I have stopped them for now, but reading onthe internet, we are not the first and I am sure they will be switching to using more servers. I will keep an eye on it.

I assume the website/forums are still painfully slow for everyone? If not, what's the secret?
