The site was mentioned on FB (as a place of slander but all publicity is good publicity?)
Thanks. I do remove slander but I receive very few reports and those that do rarely provide specifics.

Re: get the word out!

We had a large number of users sign up on march 25th. Was this site mentioned somewhere I'm unaware of?

Could be spambots so I'm reluctant to approve them all. Might stagger it.

Re: Private messages

Yes I get the same too. You can delete them individually by clicking on it then deleting/X it.

I am looking into it.

Re: locked out

Last two days I still sometimes get the "exceeded maximum number of login attempts" when I try to log in. Anyone else?

Probably just a recent surge in hack/spam attempts.

Re: locked out

Every once in a while there is a surge of hackers/spambots trying to register for the forum hence the security modules are triggered. It can often leading to over blocking of IPs hence the issue you got. I also got it before logging in. I have cleared the list so should be fine now. (some people may...

Re: cant see PM

Host claims not to have changed anything on their end. Seems to be a bit more complicated than first thought so will get my software guy to look into it. I will provide notification in advance on theOptom.com Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheOptom/ and Twitter accounts https://twitter.com/theopt...

Re: cant see PM

I don't think I have issues receiving PMs but I just tried to delete a message and got the same message: "The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again."

I will look into it.

Re: Lockdown

Everything should be resolved now. Had the worst luck with this site!

As it stands we are with the best rated host on trustpilot, daily offsite backups, latest forum software installed, independently tested security certificate, so hopefully should be fine now.

5th June 2020 outage - DNS issue?

Apparently there was a DNS issue. The website registrar and host weren't sure what caused it but I transferred this domain over to the host so it was all under one roof. Seems to have fully propagated now: https://dnschecker.org/#A/www.theoptom.com There was no loss of data that I can tell. You may ...
