    ... was brought to you by DDoS.

    No doubt some of you are wondering why the site was down for a short while.
    It was just a regular DDoS, nothing more.

    The people who performed the DDOS get a good ol':

    XenForo has been slow for me since around 12:30 PM. It is now 4:07 PM, and it's still being slow.

    Is anyone else having issues?

    windows run -> CMD -> tracert xenforo.com

    Seems attacking xenForo forums is the new trend, We had a very nasty DDoS attack today and several lighter ones over the weekend.

    Heh. I didn't notice it. Then again, I can't log in, either. Emails aren't working for me... again... and I made two-step verification mandatory for staff last week, so I'm kind of in a tight spot because I did my weekly data clearing on yesterday.

    Sigh... I'll send you a conversation regarding the emails. This is getting annoying.

    Because the server your on wasn't attacked. But yeah, open a convo please as this thread isn't a support thread for us :)

    No change after clearing my data (cache, cookies, etc.). I'm hoping it will be better by tomorrow.

    Just an update, but everything appears to be fine now. I don't know what the issue was.

    FireFox blocking random CSS. It's an issue I've seen a few times with firefox

    I don't think that would explain the slowness, though, would it?

    speed, no probably not. But it's been loading fine for me (with the exception of the day this thread was made)

    Regardless of what it was, I was including both issues in my earlier update post, so all's well. :D

    You've angered the Brogan Claus by slapping him with a trout (He was secretly behind the DDoS)

    Kind of confused why XenForo doesn't take advantage of Cloudflare or a similar service.
