Is it me?

Post by Richard Negus » Sun Sep 15, 2013 7:14 pm

I've recently had a problem logging in to this site (only). Messages like '403 Forbidden' and 'Plesk Parallels', and references to phpBB, etc. Something like this also happened a few weeks ago, but with assistance from another forum, I found a 'back door' way in.Is anyone else suffering, or know what's happening, as there's no mention from very recent posters.

I heard from Graham today that he had had to close down this site temporarily due to a high number of bogus attempts to register - which would have lead to this site being unusable.It looks like he has managed to sort a remedy luckily ....David

Many thanks for your patience,When the rogue registrations suddenly reached over 200 a day, I couldn't cope. I could see that David was deleting away merrily too.I've updated the forum, the anti spam is working well. Not sure why the avatars are missing but at least we have our forum back :-)Each area of the site, forum, gallery, clubshop, is a standalone site, I had the forum and gallery linked with a common login but the higher security in the latest software is proving difficult to link.If I had more time,during daylight hours, all would be well. Hospital visits come first so my time is limited.Many many thanks to you all for making the forum so special, it's more than I ever dreamed of, the level of technical understanding in the forum is a real joy for me to see.If you do find problems with the site, please do email me at graham@todaysimages.co.ukI can't sort problems 'til I know about them.Keep up the good work.Graham
