And we're back up.. all went smoothly.. thanks for your patience all!
Hi Sharky,
Thanks for a great forum and new home for Darwin vets.

I have a slight problem with the display quivering when scrolled to a certain position (see attached short video).
It only happens when at position shown. Stops if scrolled down a bit. Just wondering if I am the only user experiencing this.
Problem goes back before latest upgrades. Accessing via Chrome browser and Windows. Minor annoyance, post is just for information purposes.

Apologies for the outages today, I suspect we're under DDOS attack. I've enabled our CloudFlare protection so you'll probably get some javascript challenge when you first access the site. I'll leave this on until the attack subsides.

I got the site down error for a few minutes.
Good luck with the defending of the site.

Sometimes it takes more than 5 seconds, but it is better to wait than to be vulnerable.

Started to get more Cloudflare incidents over past couple of days.

DDoS still an issue?
Can't be inviting for newbies, nor convenient for current members.

I'd rather have the inconvenience of waiting a few extra seconds than have the site completely inaccessible.

(Edit) Darwinex site back up, maybe it was site maintenance.

(It seems Darwinex is having problems at the moment too. Screenshot below of Darwinex.com from time of this post)

Same.
I'll would rather the extra second or 3 logging.

Do what you gotta do to keep this a great place to be

I've done some housekeeping and I think I've solved the issue, server should be a lot more stable going forward. I've also turned down the DDOS protection so it shouldn't be so intrusive. Will continue to monitor. Apologies for the disruption to normal service

Do we know where the DDOS is coming from and why T2W is a target ?
Unfortunately not, I need to investigate more and perhaps upgrade the server. Whenever we get spikes of traffic it locks up the server, so cloudflare DDOS protection puts the brakes on, but for example perhaps the level of protection could be less and the length of time it's on lessened. I've lowered it for now, and if we get another outage, I might try incrementally increasing it or beefing up the cloud server, or both!
