DVDVR Message Board
RIPPA

Update

Recommended Posts

Let's see if I can stay connected long enough to post this.

So I chatted with support on our host server about the site basically not loading.

Our server is getting hit with a heavy load and a lot of sketchy connections (they provided me with a bunch of IPs and I secretly am kinda hoping it is one of you just having the site open on like 5824 computers).

The suggestion I received from support was to use a CDN service (specifically Cloudfare for the one of you that might care). So basically it is Chimp hammering at a computer time for me. Or I might just get pissed and start deleting shit in mySQL

I need to do more research on the CDN front (and get some information from @DEAN) so the site will probably continue to be up and down for a few days as connections come and go. Heck, that might not even solve the problem.

It isn't Dutch hacker bad but still a pain in my ass.

And as per usual - you can always look for updates on Facebook or Twitter when shit ain't working here

I don’t know about any of the technical details on all that, but if it came down to paying a third party to deal with it? A fundraiser? I’ll gladly chip in $20 to help the site run smoothly. Is there anything we can do about it?

Yeah, what he said.  I mean I do use this five days a week so the least I can do is help chip in something.

I'm still shocked this board doesn't have a Donators option that gives those who donate access to an exclusive part of the forum, being able to change your username/the title underneath it, etc. I don't know how many people are familiar with EWB, but that's how they do it.

I'm all for supporting the board, but the current system of making Rippa watch Mike Shaw matches for money seems far better than the more modern mumbo jumbo that @Casey is suggesting.

Yes, my suggestion is a bit off when you consider the age demographics of EWB vs DVDVR.

We need a money mark.
