Protection! - Praefectusclassis - 06-29-2017

Don't worry it's free. I've installed some server-level code today to keep out hacking attempts, spambots and interesting characters like that. This may have side-effects... Please report any strange behaviour of the forum (not the members - we have mods for that). Thanks!

Not related - in fact, the reason I installed this software is to prevent such situations. They are most likely related to bots coming by and trying to consume all content on the site at once, overloading the server.

Just checked the logs. It appears Chinese IPs are the most common visitor here, outnumbering number 2 & 3 put together by a factor of 3. Can anybody say "Baiduspider"?

Hi Jasper

I've noticed that posts by Francis (Longovicium) in the 'Anastasian edict' thread are not showing up, or are only appearing after a delay of many hours.

This could well be happening to other people as well - could it be a side effect of the new protection system?

RE: Protection! - Praefectusclassis - 06-30-2017

No, it's absolutely impossible those two are related. Francis' issues have been resolved. No others have been reported.
