I am not sure if this is where I should post this, but I could not access this forum all day yesterday, it said bad gateway. I am just not sure if it was the site or both of my apple devices.

It was the site. I emailed Josh twice about it but I've no idea what the problem was.

I asked on Twitter first, but figured I should just wait until the forum pops back up and ask again on here.

I've just had an explanation from Josh, he says " Yes the server is getting hit by bots"

" Yes the server is getting hit by bots"
In the server's menus should be found something like an IP Blocker. This needs a "master list" of banned IPs that will cut all that BS out.

NOTHING done on the forum itself will cull the most persisent bad IPs.

Block at server, not forum - problem solved. :)

... what I have been saying all along....
