Yeah, thanks to DoF source, I knew there was a crash, thank you DoF Source.

Do I get payed for advertising? :D

I wonder who hosts this site.

I know who hosts it. But I don't know if I should tell :P I actually think it's the same one as the one I buy my domains from.
Also np lol.
Wills as I said earlier it's not a spam attack but a crash on their hosting.

Btw it's ironic that the same exact thing is happening with the dofsource host right now. Their site as well as dofsource and all my other sites on that host are down. Rofl.

I just noticed they renamed threads such as the Main Square, so that may be the reason.

Don;t think so, they change long before (1 whole day).

Witch King I suggested to JBV to rename the generic thread titles, not from an aesthetic point of view but because spam bots target keywords - especially 'offtopic', 'general', 'discussion' and 'suggestions'. This was changed a day or two ago.

Guys... It's strange but first this site goes down, then dofsource, then this site again and now... dofsource went like...back in time... Look all the crap is from like a week away or something. We lost 3 or 4 members, AGES of shoutbox posts, around 3 news posts and a bunch of threads including the whole 4th contest. And it had 3 entries.
And my host says couldn't connect to database when I try to log in to their site to ask what's going on.
God, I gotta move hosts. -_-

It is amazing how much that custs down on spam bots and even spammers that are real people I have noticed a drop on sites I have run.

It's a good Idea especially in a fantasy game forum
