Forum being load-spammed - SOLVED

Post by Stratego (dev) » Tue Mar 24, 2020 7:30 am

There server runs in 100% because some bots are making very many requests to the forum from various sources.
bad news is it slowens the in-game requests too so you might experience slower game listings and such.

I have contacted the server provider to suggest solution, but until that i might move the forum to a different link, here:
http://www.androidutils.com/forumx/

so on previous URL-s it will not accessible sometimes, please copy and save this link for you so you can log in and post when i have moved the forum teporarily to this URL. (this will only happen until we find a solution to restrict these spammer-sources)

sorry 4 inconvenience.
