      Ongoing DDoS Attack causing Forum Slowness   26/04/17

      In case you have missed the announcement, the reason that the forum has been slow at times since the minor version update the other day is due to a Denial of Service attack, brute force attack on our email, and judging by the lag with our FTP response, that too.  If you're feeling like you're experiencing a glitch in the Matrix, you're not wrong.  This is the same MO as the attack in September 2016 that occurred when we transitioned to the new version 4 of the software.  We're currently working with US and UK cyber-crime departments, who specialise in this sort of thing, and we're hopeful that we'll be able to track them down this time by using the accumulated evidence already held.    We are pretty certain that it's a continuation of the same attack last year, only at a reduced intensity to deter people from using the site "because it's terribly slow", rather than taking it down completely, and we're also sure of the motivations of those responsible.  Spite.   Please bear with us in the interim, and wish us luck in dealing with these.... "people".

Work in Progress and Ready for Inspection Threads in the WW1 Aircraft Area

8 posts in this topic

Having spent a good few hours moving threads from here in between a forum upgrade and move, and with a good few more hours to go trawling through this section tidying up, it is disappointing to find yet more work in progress threads and ready for inspection threads cropping up that are squirreled away here.

WW1 Aircraft builds belong in the work in progress or ready for inspection sub forums of the aircraft area.

Any further build or inspection threads found here will be locked off, as it is wasting time for the mods.

As another offender of long standing can I seek further clarification. On the 1/72 conversions thread I asked if anyone had carried out any of the earlier suggestions. A member replied in the affirmative with a couple of photos of his converted BE12a. Is this permissible or is there a different procedure to follow ?

In general, and only speaking for myself, I find there is far less interest in eras removed from WW2 and the jet age. Personally, I would prefer WW1, Interwar for example, to be all encompassing and include WIP, RFI and Research in the one sub forum. Just my opinion but I have wondered if there is a technical reason that would prevent this.

Regards, Steve

Aviation work in progress one sub section, ready for inspection one sub section = Two sub sections. Simples!

Personally, I find the layout just about perfect, but you will never please everyone with the possible exception of Windows 8 which pleases no-one, well no-one I know. But I digress. I am just great full we have these sites to admire, question and find things. I can't imagine a more thankless job than moderator.

I fully agree Robin Windows 8.******* and having moderated a forum its an absolute pain at times so, like you, I am really grateful to all involved in putting this site together and keeping it current so we can indulge ourselves in this great hobby. For our part I guess we should be mindful where to post stuff to ease the burden a little.

:banghead: Okay, I suppose I have an apology to make. I'll start my WW1 WIP over again in the Heavy Metal forum if necessary. No worries.

Just seemed like the place for all WW1 postings. Should have done a little more reading.

I'm glad I read this - I know it's been here quite a while (2013) but I don't spend much time in the WW1 forum and I might well have done the wrong thing otherwise!
