Forum issues

Post by Jim Henry » Fri Jul 01, 2016 2:15 pm

There have been two days recently when the Forum was shutdown by the internet service provider because of excessive activity. My guess is that there was some sort of robot attack on the Forum. I have instituted a number of measures to block access to the Forum and the miditzer.org site by malicious robots. If I have inadvertently blocked a real user, send me a message. Identify your four digit IP address if you can so I can remove the block for that address.

What I mean is no "Hand" appears when I hover over Newest Members at bottom of screen.

Did a "Hand" appear after the change in Forum style? And then stop after July 1?

I am hard pressed to think of how the steps taken on July 1 would affect the newest member link. I can see that changing with the change in Forum style.

Seems like it has been on or off the last month or so. Not consistence. Guess I better start recording things I notice from now on.

Last two days "newest member link" has been working OK. Are there really that many guests on line? Every time I get on there are at least eight or more guests.

I think a lot of our "guests" are bots, good and bad, trolling the internet.

For last two days the Newest Member has shown up as "The requested user does not exist".

Newest member (GeorgeNant) back to "The requested user does not exist." and is not listed in members when sorted by date.

Why has the number of your posts gone down to Eight?
