Recent Events: We're not dead!

Recommended Posts

Morning all!

 

Thank you for sticking around while we've been having some rather turbulent times with our forum host. Unfortunately, we're still under attack, but upgrades to our network over the last few days should atleast stop the forum from going offline every 20 minutes.

 

I should say this to you guys too, since i've said it to the staff already; that i apologise for my absence over the last 2 months. IRL issues strike again, though this time it has been more to do with work and less about my health, thankfully.

 

Our January Digest was blinding considering the forums were down for much of it.. In any case, well done to our devs and members who have submitted code to github, you guys have kept rAthena going even though the main method of communication, our forum, has been unavailable.

 

I'm proud of you!

 

P.S If you have any concerns, feel free to send me a PM.

P.P.S Staff applications are always open.

P.P.S.S Anyone can submit a Pull Request

Unfortunately, we're still under attack

 

O.o By who? Even government agencies didn't keep up their ddos attacks for more than a few days/hours.

 

My theory is that rA is simply very popular and the hoster/provider recognises that as ddos. Especially when the site comes down and everyone starts hitting refresh :)

 

My other theory is that the hoster is braindead and we should switch. Just ask the guys on IRC, we had quite a conversation about our hoster.

RE: Recent Events: We're not dead (yet)!

 

man, why don't separated ur "server"?

 

before that, assumed I'm a someone who don't know about rAthena server status (well, actually I don't know, really!!) and have question, "how come rAthena forum can be down by DDoS? even other community site with 100x peak more than rA never be down? but their download server that sometimes got problem". Do u get it?

Users never want to know about rA "server" even they want to know, I bet u guys (admins) won't tell, so users just want forum can be accessed 24/7. They/I won't care about "server" is it, VPS, VMs, Stat server, BOT, etc bla bla. So, if server still has risk to be DDoS, then why don't put rA site itself on fair-perfect shared hosting, and if u want the file cannot be public, the put the file on ur "server". The problem will be cut down, just be "Currently file server is down! Uploading & Downloading are not available".

 

meh, and when rA is down, no public info. HELL!!

I ever asked for FB/Twitter or other social media access, for necessary news, but u guys said it's unnecessary. Fun. :D

 

We are not dead, yeah "we" as devs but not "we" as admins, u was killed, u guys are undead now! and "we" ARE NOT DEAD YET as community, "yet", if the condition is still go on, no one guarantee even admin can't guarantee when they'll ALIVE here.

 

Regards,

Someone that u used to know~

Let us all not lose focus of our mission and goals /ok

 

 

We thank the community for its patience and support.

Good to see the dream is alive through these turbulent times.

 

Don't worry Akkarin, RL must always take priority, otherwise things would turn out worse in the long run.

Aah, so that's why I couldn't get into rAthena forum from http connection, only https.

I thought rAthena forum was dead already... until I tried https one day, there it is.

the current problem rA is encountering i believe is not really ddos.

Members who visit rA with http://rathena.org/boardwithout ssl wont reach the forum.

Solution force using https/ssl on all pages
