I checked their status page today here: http://status.maxcdn.com/ and they reported some issues in Frankfurt data centre, my guess is that had some impact on loading the page, for whatever reason - not sure why it should if you're in the UK, but maybe it was routing the assets from there for some reason.
Anyway, hopefully they'll have everything resolved before tomorrow, and the site will load normally again. Will keep an eye on this thread.
hi. I have same issue as new trader. i cannot attach images, page loading time is more than a minute on average. this is on all browsers. firefox auto updated this morning but no changes unfortunately.
MajorMagnum, I've purged the cache on MaxCDN, see if that makes any difference now. If not, can you look for one of the broken images, then grab its url, and try doing a traceroute to it and send me the results at firstname.lastname@example.org
I think we managed to get to the bottom of the problem. Basically our CDN network changed some of the ip addresses they use, but they didn't tell us, so those new ips were getting rejected by the firewall we set up after the DDOS attacks. Now we've updated the ips that are allowed and so it should be fine again. Looks like they just changed it a few days ago, and they have lots of ips, so would explain why some members have had problems whilst others haven't.
Thanks again everyone for reporting the issue, and do let me know if you have any further issues. I'm hoping not!
Here's how some of the forum's folders appear to me, today (please excuse the tongue-in-cheek but irresistible comment that the lack of all text is certainly "one way of not seeing all the spam and self-promotional posting"! ) ...
