Recent Site Outage

#303652

Post by Trekboy008 » Monday June 17, 2013, 21:48 EDT

As you all are probably aware, the site recently experienced an outage. This was a result of a rather large number of notification emails that were sent by site to users within a relatively short period of time, which caused the server to classify the site as a spammer/bulk emailer. I believe that this was the result of a user abusing the private message system to send spam to members (please contact me if you have received a spam private message recently). Until I can be sure of the cause, I have disabled email notifications for topic and forum subscriptions (sorry), but I have enabled RSS feeds for the forum. Additionally, I am asking all members to turn off email notifications for new private messages.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Frank

I was thinking to myself "This site better not shut down or my life would be so boring"

I was actually going to bring up the fact all my mail from the site seemed to have stopped, just before it went down. Though, given that while it was down I kept getting blocks of messages from here, I sorta figured out it was a messaging issue.
When you message me, please remember not to annoy me. Remember...
