Some of you may have noticed that the website has been slow these couple of days, our service provider claimed that it was DDoS, so we turned on DDoS prevention, yet it still persisted in being slow or completely unloadable. Later on, they claimed that it was something else causing the problem. The final straw was when even the host itself shut down for a couple of hours. There was no announcement about this due us admins not even able to access the server either. As of current, we have moved to our new server!
ps. To avoid such a situation like not being able to make an announcement on the page happen again (very unlikely but just in case), we have set up a twitter for MBC updates.
pps. Please comment below if you spot any issues with the website. We’ll fix them ASAP. Joe, our fabulous tech admin is checking the rest of the wp system to make sure it’s fine.
Yay, upgraded site and yay for alyschu for less stress hopefully.
I love you guys! *hugs*
It seemed like you guys, Gravity, Wuxia World, and Translation Nations were all experiencing server troubles at the same time. Were you all using the same server provider?
All four of us are actually using 4 different service providers.
Oh… Then it makes me wonder if someone was trying to DDOS all of you, or if it was just a coincidence.
Maybe I’m just making up crazy conspiracy theories. lol. 😛
There is a problem when I press the ‘Follow’ button on Twitter it said “problem following this user” I’ve tried for a while now.
if its within twitter, then there’s nothing we can do here. better check with twitter what’s wrong
Alys and Joe, and anyone else who had a hand in making the move happen, much thanks!
Perhaps it was the server provider or someone even further up the chain getting ddos’ed.
As soon as your page appeared, this Message came up with [Accept] button.
Is this from your page or from someone else?
There’s a new European law that says that websites have to have a bar like that pop up.
Occasionally blank screens will show up. One minute it’ll be fine, then I refresh and it reloads to a white screen. It’s
not a big problem for me since I only check for DKC and I’m pretty patient, but you might want to check that out.
It’s fixed now, someone was trying to DDoS again during the white screen episode.
Wasn’t this why you kept a backup site?
